Your wedding day will be here faster than you can say “I do,” and while you’ve probably already chosen the perfect venue, a photographer to capture your most precious moments, and a wedding dress that’s sure to make your groom’s heart skip a beat, you may have overlooked one important tradition… a bridal shower!
After all, now that he’s put a ring on it, its time to celebrate with your best friends! Since there’s no better way to shower the bride than to relieve the stress of planning a wedding, a relaxing spa day is the ideal venue for some pre wedded bliss.

After experiencing the bridal spa package myself, I’ve decided that Bliss Spa at the W hotel is truly the hostess with the mostest.

With supermodels like Alessandra Ambrosio, and “it” girls in attendance every year, Coachella is easily the most fashionable of all the festivals.
While Coachella is known and celebrated for its incredible music line ups, beautiful American setting and outrageous parties, the fashion is what tends to take center stage.
So whether you’re going to the festival, or just want to look the part, check out my Coachella guide to get the inspiration you need for a headlining look!
With our heads almost free of winter gear, it’s the perfect time to get some hair-spirtaion from Coachella goers who are decked out in their boho best. Loved by celebs and socialites alike, the flower crown is a must-have for musical festivals. If you’re looking to stand out from the flower power crowd, try a head wrap, chain or feather clips to the inevitable floral garland. Rather take things waist-side? The freshest trend are metal belts. Like statement jewelry for the body, a waist belt is a little bohemian and a little rock and roll.
We don’t think there is any other hair accessory truly made for outdoor festivals than the flower crown. Worn with bikini.com’s Luli Fama’s Frilly Triangle Top, you’ll look like a darling desert nymph.
Whether you’re listening to bands, hanging pool side, or soaking up the desert sun, you’ll need to make a major style statement and keep your cool with some killer bikinis.
From floral prints, retro-inspired versions, sporty cuts, or something classically chic,
Coachella calls for a stand-out bikini. My picks? Go bright in a bold color bikini for some fun in the sun and go fringe worthy to rock out with your friends.
Cant make it too Coachella? Live vicariously through festivals celebs by pairing a white breezy dress or romper with a belt, turquoise beads, complementing head scarf and fringed out cross body bag for your own take on Coachella fashion thats ready for the streets. You’ll practically be able to hear Drake playing off in the distance. A girl can dream, no?
On March 26th, I was honored to host a night of style with heart for Diane Von Furstenberg to fête her Spring 2015 collection. Attendees of the exclusive in-store event were asked to bring in a dress for Dress for Success Boston, a charity that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools for women to thrive in work and in life. Guests enjoyed champagne, hors d’oeuvres from Met Back Bay, and mini makeovers from beauty guru Tavi De La Rosa as I presented DVF’s latest collection.
A celebration of this stature is fitting to those that own a DVF dress. After all, it’s easy to get wrapped up in a frock that allows a woman to exude feminine sultriness and womanly strength all while being versatile enough to be a witness in the evolution of the woman’s life who wears it.
While the dreamy notion of tiptoeing through the tulips may not be on the agenda for a few more weeks, to get inspired for the possibility of warm weather, I styled guests in this seasons hottest trends to assure they’d be stepping into spring on a sartorial high note.
With that in mind, whether you’re looking for outfits for work, or play, I rounded up the most coveted DVF looks of the evening to make sure you too will be a stylish step ahead of the competition this Spring.
With patio parties and bridal showers to attend, its the perfect time to work Spring’s vivid romantic florals into your wardrobe. Bold in scale and color, the floral trend took over runways during fashion month. Whether you decide to go big and beautiful or minute and abstract, one things for sure, flower power is here to stay. Whether paired with denim for off-duty dressing, or heels for a cocktail party, florals are firmly back on the fashion map and will prove a worthy investment for your wardrobe in seasons to come. For an indispensable tunic style, look no further than the DVF Kaden to keep you bloomed to perfection this Spring. Featuring a clean v-neck, 3/4 sleeves and an A-line skirt in the season’s boldest prints, this style is sure to be your go-to all summer long.
THE SHIRT DRESS
As the climate varies from freezing to the very slight possibility of warmth, it becomes harder to tailor a working wardrobe. Enter the DVF Prita silk shirt dress. Light and airy, it can be gathered in or billowed out, and buttoned up or down. Best of all? The smart tailoring is versatile enough to effortlessly take you from power player to cocktail hour and anywhere in between.
Fall may have brought us proper plaids, but for spring it’s all about gingham. No longer just for picnics, gingham was spotted all over the runways. Diane von Furstenberg’s seized upon gingham for Spring 2015 and twisted it into something akin to daring and sexy — no small feat for a fabric often described as prim, and traditional. Inspired by glamour goddess Brigitte Bardot, DVF has managed to make gingham playful and yet sophisticated. Despite its many iterations, the fabric is a sartorial chameleon, so forget everything you know about gingham and try the freshly revamped fabric on for size.
CROP TO IT
A crop top and ladylike skirt with waist-whittling proportions and only the subtlest flash of flesh can turn an evening look into something decidedly modern. Take the DVF Jayme for example. The corset top with flattering ruching detail is punctuated by a full floral skirt, with a little pop of midriff in between, making it the perfect subtle yet sexy twist on a classic dress.
THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS
The white slip dress—that iconic piece of nineties fashion—is finally having a renaissance. While this might be a matrimony favorite, Diane Von Furtsenberg’s white lace Olivette dress is for so much more than a walk down the aisle; from hot summer nights to easter brunch, theres no better time than the present to say yes to the little white dress.
So whether you’re looking to completely refresh your wardrobe with the latest trends, or simply seeking a few standout pieces to put a new spin on an old look, DVF Boston will have you stepping into Spring in style. Trust.

Dyeing to change your hair color? Join the club. There’s just something about the sun that makes me crave color, from florescent bright shoes, to bold lips, and sun-kissed hair, theres no better time to blossom into a new style than spring.
First seen in Vogue, Balayage, which was taken from the French word meaning “to sweep,” is a freehand technique in which swatches of hair are sectioned and hand painted against a backing board with a lightening agent. The coloring technique developed in the 1970’s is modern, chic, and creates depth and dimension thats perfect for some fun in the sun. Loved by Gisele Bundchen and those in the know, Balayage is the hottest way to brighten up your look this season.
To help me spring forward with a new hair-do, I turned to the talented Gina Mancinone, the general manager at Boston’s finest hair salon, Salon Mario Russo. After a consultation, Gina set me up with an appointment with master stylist Elle Proulx Cohen to cut my hair and “Bostons Best Colorist” John Brosnan, to help me heat things up with a new “do.”
For my hair transformation, I sat down with Elle who cut right to the chase by expertly layering my long locks to help add body and shape to my one dimensional hair. Since thick hair that is weighed down can be shapeless, Elle brought my locks back to life with layers to amp up my style power. “From soft face-framing layers to seamless volumizing ones, adding dimension to your cut while removing unwanted bulk is the perfect way to create a fresh new look” Elle told me.
Next, I was off to see John for my Balayage. As a hair color virgin, I was thankful to be in the hands of a true artist like John who immediately made me feel at ease with his expert advice and warm nature. After a consultation, we decided less was more, so John created a “les reflets du soleil sur les cheveux” (sun-kissed hair) look by applying the Balayage around my face to emphasize movement and create depth. Balayage, which is also called “hair painting,” creates the most natural-looking results because the colorist paints on the highlights by hand. This method of lightening gives the colorist more control–and creates the illuminated highlights everyone wants this time of year.
Best of all? Balayage is low maintenance, and gives a gorgeous healthy finish that looks nature-enhanced, glossy and luxe. Since healthy hair will never go out of style, John and Elle finished my hair transformation off with a treatment and gloss so my hair felt as beautiful as it looked.
Bottom line? Whether you’re looking to lighten up your hair color or are dying to debut a brand-new shade, spring is the perfect opportunity to make a change and the team at Salon Mario Russo will give you the best head of hair in town. Promise.
