My love affair with the color blue continues and inspires my first wish list for X-mas. I have a small obsession with lip-themed jewelry and have always loved Solange Azagury-Partridge’s work, but it wasn’t until a recent visit to her Madison Ave boutique that my desire for her Hotlips Ring rose to a case of hot pursuit. Don’t even get me started on this Stella McCartney dress, the ruffle at the neckline, the paneled tweed, contoured silhouette and the flippy satin… I’m a woman true at heart and you couldn’t pay me not to love this stuff! *Congrats to Stella on winning the Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards last night, much deserved! And, I’ve wanted these J.Crew PJs from the moment that I saw them on the brand’s site this summer. No more sleeping on my order, time to make them mine!
Born in Jamaica. Raised in New York. Now residing in Milan. I started taking street style photographs in 2006 for Glamour.it. Shortly after, I began writing feature pieces for Vogue Pelle and became a contributor at Elle Italia. I launched All the Pretty Birds in November 2008. Before becoming Editor-in-Chief of Grazia.it in February 2011, a position that I held until September 2013, I had the great pleasure of contributing to amazing publications and websites such as Glamour U.S., Harper’s Bazaar U.S., Metro and Refinery 29. After leaving Grazia.It, I held the position of Style Director at Out There, an international creative agency. Resume aside, I am a lion, distracted daydreamer, hopeless romantic, legally blond, pretty in pink, fiercely loyal, genetically engineered to seek out the happiness of my loved ones, simplistically idealistic, champion for the underdog, too sensitive at times, and just plain human.
