A Return to Simplicity: Citizen's Sunrise Collection

After a few seasons of stacking bangles and bracelets, it feel pretty fresh to embrace simplicity in jewelry again. All I've been wearing in recent months, in fact, is a single slender bangle (I like Vita Fede), a delicate hand bracelet like this one, or (when I want a stronger look), a simple gold watch like this beauty from Citizen.

Part of Citizen's Sunrise collection, two years in the making, its design is inspired by the morning dew and features a luminescent Mother-of-Pearl dial, and two-tone stainless steel case. While I certainly see the appeal of an all stainless steel watch, I LOVE the contrast between the mixed metals here - it makes getting dressed in the morning easy given how obsessive I can be about matching metals - not only when it comes to jewelry but even handbag and shoe hardware.

The Sunrise collection is designed with function in mind as well as well as form - it's water resistant, boasts Japanese quartz movement, and as with all Citizen Eco-Drive watches, it's powered by light - in fact, you'll never need a battery again.

The Citizen Sunrise retails for $350 here.

Perfect Partners: POND's and The Rockettes

In the past several years, I've crossed off a LOT of bucket list items - and last night, yet another - dance class with the world-famous Radio City Rockettes.  It was all thanks to my peeps at POND's - they've partnered with the legendary dance troupe this holiday season to share the love for their gentle but powerful cleansers, from Cold Creams to Wet Cleansing Towelettes.

It makes sense when you think about it, given the tremendous demands of a dancer, and in particular a Rockette. During the holiday season, they sometimes perform as many as six, SIX, shows a day, sweating through their makeup and then having to reapply (dancers are responsible for their own hair and makeup) to look absolutely perfect yet again. An effective but GENTLE cleanser is necessary and that's where POND's comes in, powering the Rockettes beauty routines backstage and at home.

My fave POND's cleanser personally is easily the Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes - they're, I insist upon it, the very best on the market - appropriately wet (what's up with dry cleansing wipes?), they leave skin clean, but not stripped, with no grody residue.

Slay On: Tilda Swinton for NARS Cosmetics

Tilda Swinton is one of those rare actresses who, for lack of a better phrase, GIVES ME LIFE. Unequiovally herself, and frankly kind of weird, she has an inexplicable and otherwordly beauty that I loooove. And apparently, I'm in good company. Announced yesterday, Swinton will be the face of the NARS' Spring 2015 campaign, and was (as are all campaign models for NARS), hand selected by François Nars himself.

"I love [Tilda's] bold style and really admire her work. As an actress, she brings such strong personality to the camera. And as a woman, she lives the experience of transformation and expression." - François Nars on Tilda Swinton

The NARS spring campaign was shot, as always, by François Nars - four portraits of Swinton will debut in January, one to coincide with each collection story.

Real Talk: My At-Home Style

Real talk, guys - my days are often loooong, as in multiple 'o's required. Things generally start with a workout or a work breakfast, and run through a full day of strategy meetings and client conference calls, culminating in dinner or a press event.  So, when I walk in the door of my apartment, it's generally 8pm at the earliest and my primary priority in life shifts immediately to COMFORT. In order, I:

  •      Kick off my heels (ahhh!)
  •      Strip off my clothes (note: this is much less sexy than it sounds)
  •      Take out my contact lenses and put on glasses (after one too many scoldings from my opthamologist)

Evenings at home are all about ease, but let's be honest, I'll never be willing to abandon style in the process. SO, thanks to Hanes, I recently restocked my dresser with some cozy and lounge-friendly Boyfriend Boxer Briefs, Bandinis, Sweatshirts (available in 12 colors!) and socks perfect for not only fall evenings at home but Sunday style.

What's most fun about these Hanes classics is that they've been thoroughly refreshed in bright, fun colors and wild, bold patterns.  The most useful of the bunch for me personally is the Bandini ($14), a clever, convertible soft cup bra that can be worn as a bandeau, with one or two straps or as a racerback. I wear it every which way imaginable – alone, under sweatshirts, workout tanks and even drapey tees – I love seeing the bright pop of neon peek out of an arm hole.
