Ask Wardrobe Whisperer: Belt + Suspenders?

Recently I was called in to end a family feud.  It was a father/son showdown regarding suspenders and whether or not they should be worn with a belt.  The answer is that both accessories were designed to keep your pants from falling down and so they should not be worn together.  That would, for us […]

When I say I have a Grammy, this is what I mean

My 91 year old grandma lives in an area of the country where camouflage is its own clothing group like, say, tops or trousers.  This is a place of (VERY!!) informal dress.  And yet to a recent dinner event she wore the above.  (There should be no question who the Wardrobe Whisperer takes after.)  Not […]

It Can Be Wrong Even Though It’s White

One of the things I love best about the spring, besides it being perfect mojito weather, is wearing all white on the regular.  It’s cool, crisp, polished and, as a hue (or lack thereof) it works with everything.  Sadly, though, “universally flattering” does not appear on the list of its virtues.  So unless you have […]

Long time readers of my blog know that I worked for Goldman Sachs.  Twice.  And it was there that I began styling.  I got hired, in large part, because I can do complex math equations like this: Smart folks who need to look polished but have no time to think about their wardrobe + $ […]

My Mourning Jacket

My husband loves to rib me for excessive pun usage in my blog titles.  He’s right, of course, that I am heavy-handed but I can’t help it – puns make me giggle.  (We met in a book club, for Pete’s sake, did he not know what he was marrying?!)  I was thrilled therefore when a […]

Beyond Love with Met’s Beyond Fashion Exhibit

Today I am memorializing fallen veterans by eating grilled ribs and drinking gin and tonics (??); It seems my traditions have strayed from the true meaning of the day. Friday I was memorializing a veteran of a different sort.  I finally had a chance to view the Charles James, couture veteran, exhibit at The Met.  […]

Dress to Impressionist

A few months ago I got off the train at Christopher Street to meet a client for a wardrobe update in the Village.  I came above ground and a woman stopped me and said, “Excuse me but I love everything you have on!  There are all these tourists around here and you’re showing them how […]

Mother, May(hem) I?

  Readers, meet my new fashion love, “Mayhem” Keiser.  At four years old, she and her paper-dress creations are the things that (my) dreams are made of.  Although she is not allowed to use scissors yet, she directs her mom (who claims she herself is not crafty at all) on how to cut construction paper […]
