OH, OSCAR

“I am best known (I think) for taking the brand’s reputation for outfitting ladies who lunch, to ladies (and girls) who tweet at lunch.” – ERIKA BEARMAN 

Otherwise known as @OscarPRgirl, Erika Bearman has what most girls, including myself, would consider the ultimate dream job.  Playing dress up all day, tweeting and instagraming around town, and her hysterical personality, Erika takes high fashion to a whole new level.  She makes wearing a few thousand dollar dress feel more accessible- well to the average American girl. Let’s just say I am slightly obsessed with her New York minimalist pad.  Racks of Oscar’s one of a kind collection, ball gowns, and sequins galore..um yes please.   Her Coveteur story reminds me of a 90s dream. Like when I used to pretend I was Kelly Kapowski and dating Zac Morris on Saved By the Bell. Any who, you should read the article– she is a pretty sweet girl with a killer job.

Is It September Yet

Are the September issues giving you inspiration overload?  I have been dreaming about New York Fashion Week after talking to my cousin this week about how busy she is making seating charts and sending out invitations.  It really got me thinking about the outrageously gorgeous outfits I would wear if I had the chance to go Bryant Park this year.  Street style has become almost as important as the clothes on the runways and I am excited to see what the icons bring to the table this year.  Are you wishing you were sitting front row in September?

The Hot List 2012

Yesterday Conde Nast Traveler released their 2012 Hot List– the editors and writers “best” hotels and spa list for this year.  Not only is one of my favorite hotels in Scottsdale (my hometown) on the list but there are some of the most exotic and elborate places in the world.  I think being a Conde Nast Traveler editor could be one of the coolest jobs- go stay in places like Buenos Aires and write about your stay at one of the nicest hotels in the world (not too shabby).  

The hotel that really stuck out at me was Rushmeyer’s in Montauk, New York.  I know it is not in anything exotic or built into the hillside of Italy but it was a hotel that I felt was in arms reach.  This trendy spot right off the coast of some of the best surfing in the US, is a grown-ups Summer camp getaway.  They have ping pong, bicycles, music that plays all night long and cusine from the famous Manhattan joint, Fat Radish. This would be such a fun spot for a summer vacation in my book.

The Grey Dog

When i was in New York this summer and my cousin took me to this little hole in the wall..best idea ever!  The Grey Dog is a little sandwhich and salad joint in the East Village and let me tell you they have the best Sangria I have ever had.  The place is so charming with a handwritten menu and small tables both inside and out.
