Minis and Mansions

on
Coldwell Banker realtor Elizabeth Tardif wears a lot of hats while on the job–she spent the morning showcasing houses to out-of-towners, negotiating contracts and cheering on current sellers. It took my husband and I two years of diligently trudging to Westport from the city, while searching for our dream home with fellow Coldwell employee Evi […] [Read More]

Bohemian Rhapsody

on
I was thrilled to see Susan Sutherland (nee Berry) recently perusing Theory’s new Westport store. Not just because her pretty, bohemian style heralds the coming of spring, nor due to her genuine delight at being photographed for this blog. It was the fact she wasn’t wearing skinny jeans. I have been completely over that particular […] [Read More]

Go Navy!

on
Last Saturday morning, while I had one son spinning like a mad-hatter on the tire swing and the other rocketing himself through a play tunnel, I looked up and saw Kara Sullivan. She, too, was hanging with her bunch-of-boys on the playground, but Ms. Sullivan set herself apart with her nautical-inspired navy ensemble. From her […] [Read More]

Sweet Treat

on
I love the splashiness of pink–it gives winter skin a glow while evoking the notion of spring bouquets. A bright spot of color looks great (and less like toddler couture) when you wear it like Barbara Silva, 19, who perked up her basic T and leggings with a raspberry colored scarf and tiny floral barrette.

Beachy Keen

on
I ran into Tanner White in the parking lot while he was taking the top down on his Jeep. I, on the other hand, was off in my sticker encrusted mom-van to buy more juice boxes for my toddlers at Whole Foods. Tanner’s washed denim, cool T, classic shades and flip flops gave off the […] [Read More]

Braids of Glory

on
Johanna Hall has been a yoga teacher at Kaia since September. She channels a quiet, peaceful strength, even while flipping herself upside down into handstands. Before yoga, Hall was a dancer–the difference between the two? “You can express beauty through yoga but you don’t have to.” A lovely sentiment from a gal who knows how […] [Read More]

All you need is love.

on
I ran into a sparkling April Chou, 28, while perusing the kitchen fare with her beau at Crate and Barrel. While I, too, get happy about home goods, I had to stop her for a moment and find out the source of her joy–tucked into her leather bucket purse was an iconic little blue bag […] [Read More]

The Artist

on
Hair and makeup genius Mateo Ambrose stands out with his self-possessed, personal sense of style . He mixes it up just right with a touch of gentleman dandy layered on top of a 90′s, grunge era flannel. Scuffed motorcycle boots and worn jeans give him a rock-n-roll edge, and the novelty buttons and black rosary add […] [Read More]

Sk8R Grrl

on
Morgan McClain, 14, of Monroe, stood out from the streams of giddy winter break mall-walkers at the Trumbull Shopping Center last week. Her no-fuss style matched her low-key attitude as she politely toted her skateboard through the food court with her mom.  Why skating? “I just wanted to try it,” she said. After six years […] [Read More]
