The smell of chocolate and coziness of this unbelievable place make us think in an old fashioned sense. It smells like Christmas here or just simply home, a warm and welcoming place. The owner Arlene Brockel is one of the warmest human beings you will ever meet and very passionate about her chocolatier artistry. (Video featuring Arlene and The Chocolate Lab of Bethlehem coming soon)

the art and the science of beauty
reveal your radiant nature

A Fashion Page, presents model Olivia Swiadek. She is a beautiful and radiant, natural 5’10” stunner. She is unbelievably nice and I’d kill for her body.

For this photoshoot, John Rounds captured Olivia at both her cheerful and her most sultry- and we decided that it is virtually impossible to take an unflattering picture of the model. She has strong facial features and beautiful eyes, so she can handle any light or angle.

Weekend Dress Code

This week is all about perfect pieces for a weekend in a hot spot like New York City or any trendy suburban neighborhood- from a fashion village bound top and faux fur vest to an ultrafeminine super comfortable pair of jeans and combat boots.

Let's get started with your cozy weekend look. Number one get the color right. The Fall/Winter collection featured a full spectrum of color- from outrageous neons to perfect primaries.  How to wear it?

20-year-olds or younger (like our model Angelica) can happily boast brights- including head-to-toe color and funky kaleidoscopic patterns or bold graphic sweatshirts. They can also experiment with textures and pair different styles like urban/boho or romantic with grunge. Shocking shades work well on 30-year-olds when scaled down to a chic accessory- think a vivid clutch or a pair of stilettos.

Update your wardrobe with pieces like slim pants or jeans that add miles to the leg and sleek, streamlined accessories.

Make a strong statement this season with punk-rock pieces, graphic sweatshirts and prints that pop.

Play with proportion: Try oversized coats, cardigans and vests.

Wild One

Winter dark days are still ahead of us but many women out there embrace it with colors, prints. bold jewelry statements and mini leather skirts.  This is my interpretation of this brand new elegance and effortlessness.

There is something appealing and almost irresistible about the "cheap," big, statement necklaces. I just love wearing them with collar, button down blouses and skin tight dresses.  Below is another look that features great oversize necklace by Sam Edelman and super comfortable vest by Stella+Lorenzo.

Necklace: Sam Edelman, Vest: Stella+Lorenzo, Sunglasses: Saint Laurent, Blouse: Spell, Skirt: Sally La Pointe, Bag: Sanctuary, Watch: Shinola, Boots: Raport.

 

Even the most dramatic looks can still be cozy and have a comfy appeal. In the look below featured are super funky but still girlie Stella McCartney sunglasses that I absolutely adore, cropped, leopard printed Dolce & Gabbana top and an amazing Sam Edelman faux fur vest.

Sunglasses: Stella McCartney, Top: Dolce & Gabbana, Vest: Sam Edelman, Necklace: Jewel Box Station, Bag: Marc by Marc Jackobs, Bracelet: Anndra Neen, Skirt: Adam Lippes, Boots: AKIRA

Another  "I am woman attitude" look.
