Easing into fall with Isaac Mizrahi!

IMGP1523IMGP1525Yes, I know it is still summer, and I am savoring these final days and minutes of summer vacation. But, when you see something super-special for fall, and at such a good price, I think you must get it. That is what happened last week when I saw Isaac Mizrahi Live! on QVC, talking about these fabulous, suede wedges. Says Isaac: “It is great to have a wedge if you don’t have one people have started to discover that they need them in their wardrobe, how it just changes everything.” And the shoe in black? “The black is a must-do. It starts with black.

The wedge is a heel with the lift, and the stability under-foot. And the suede is color-rich and super-chic. Thank you, Isaac Mizrahi, for helping me ease into the fall. Join me?

Clothes tell the story of our lives: the good, the bad and the ugly

Me as a bride, the second time; the first time I was 5 years old

The second time I am a bride; the first time I was 5 years old

I believe that our clothes tell the story of our lives: that we can remember an event, a moment, a mood or a feeling, by the clothing we were wearing. I remember being five years old and wanting, more than anything, to be a bride for Halloween. I lived in an apartment building with many steps, and I was traumatized to discover that by the end of the evening my beautiful bride’s dress had been torn to shreds from trick-or-treating and continuously stepping on the hem. Years later, I remember being a bride in my grown-up wedding dress and how I felt like a princess for the day. I remember my brownie outfit and the sash that held my badges and how I wore it with pride, like a true soldier. I remember being in eighth grade, putting on a pair of bell-bottoms, wedge shoes and a Huckapoo shirt, and feeling confident and cool; the first time I really felt that way as a young teen (after months of feeling awkward and gangly). My clothes are my memories and I remember it all.

This holiday, I was moved when my friend gave me the charming book, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, written and illustrated by Ilene Beckerman. It is the story of a woman’s life and memories, told through the clothes that she wore.
