Breakfast at Tiffany's, Here in Philly

A few of the regional fashion writers were invited to Breakfast at Tiffany's Thursday morning to kick off the holiday season. Yeah, really. Breakfast at Tiffany's. Of course there was no Givenchy clothes - although I did wear a little black (print) dress. But there were mimosas: I call that a win/win.

A few of the regional fashion writers were invited to Breakfast at Tiffany's Thursday morning to kick off the holiday season.  Yeah, really. Breakfast at Tiffany's. Of course there was no Givenchy clothes - although I did wear a little black (print) dress. But there were mimosas: I call that a win/win.

Basically, Tiffany McCauley, group director of Tiffany & Co. Philadelphia and Karen Coleman, who is the director of the King of Prussia store, invited local style writers to what Tiffany's hopes will become an annual event. Other local stylistas worth mentioning: Jimmy Contreras of Philly Street Style; Carrie Denny and Emily Goulet of Philly Magazine and Tara Behan, editor of Main Line Today.  Shout out to my style colleague, Esther Lee, who writes the HauteHouse Row blog on the Philly.com Style page.

 

What a way to kick off the fashion season. 

Now during the breakfast we were talking some trends for the season. Here is my fave: this Tiffany Solstice Diamond ring. Dreams. Dreams.

What's on your holiday gift list?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
