Written by , Posted in Editorial

The week was then ended by a Gucci museum opening in one of the fashion capitals of the world. Here’s some of the fantastic art-deco.

Fabulous Candied Apples

Written by , Posted in Editorial, Recipes

Autumn’s arrival can mean only one thing: dinner parties! As more and more holidays approach, there will inevitably be more dinners with friends and family which means coming up with menus and delicious seasonal dishes. Mini candied, or caramel, apples are a perfect, cute dessert for any Autumnal party. The queen herself, Martha Stewart, tells us how its done (and it’s easier than you may think).

What You Need:
Vegetable oil cooking spray
10-12 stemmed, small lady apples
2 Cups of Sugar
3/4 Cup of light corn syrup

What You Do:
1. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Insert a 3 1/2-inch bamboo skewer into top of each apple. Set aside.

3. Bring sugar, corn syrup, and 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until light amber and mixture registers 315 degrees, on a candy thermometer, 14 to 16 minutes.

4. Immediately place pan into an ice-water bath. Remove, and let stand 2 minutes.

5. Working with 1 apple at a time, dip into caramel, turning to coat completely and letting excess caramel drip back into pan (use a spoon to help with coating if needed).

6. Transfer to prepared sheet; let cool completely. Candied apples can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place up to 3 days.

For an extra touch, you can roll your caramel coated apples in sprinkles or drizzle dark and white chocolate on them. once they’re on the pan.

Motorcycle Boots

Written by , Posted in Editorial

Leather skirts, leggings and jeggings are all reasons why the motorcycle boot will be in style this Fall. They look tough and perfect for any cold weather climate. Adding acoutrements like studs will give it either a brighter, shinier feel, or even more edgy look. Try a brown pair first if you think the dark black leather is too much for your personal style.

Neons and Neutrals

Written by , Posted in Editorial

Neons and neutrals are the perfect, easy color combo that anyone can make work. First you need a neutral color, like white, beige, grey or any variation of those. Then add something that’s your favorite shade of neon. This can be a clutch, shoes, cardigan, jewelry, etc. If you aren’t comfortable drawing all the attention that neon surely will, then opt for a slightly less bright shade of the color. A bright vivid coral is a good option if you’re not comfortable with hot pink, for example. Neon is in for the next few season so don’t worry about splurging on a few new pieces for your wardrobe.

NYFW Spring 2012: Oscar De la Renta

Written by , Posted in Editorial

Whenever I think of Oscar De la Renta, I think of the pink dress Aleksander Pertovsky surprised Carrie Bradshaw with in Season 6 of “Sex and the City.” Ever since then, I’ve been in love with the designer. This season, his collection is everything that encapsulates Spring 2012 trends: neons, blues, whites, golds, belted, short, long; he’s got it all. Check out some favorites from this year’s collection.
