One of My Favorite Websites
TO WEAR: Lagarconne.com simply rocks. It has an edgy, downtown vibe with amazing indie designers—a great site to look at. I love the art direction. I am also a frequent visitor to net-a-porter.com (totally chic high design) and shopbop.com (great contemporary designers). I also love kirnazabete.com for classic N.Y. cool-girl chic._____________ _________________________________________________
Best Lifestyle Blogs & Favorite Websites
TO LIVE: I am OBSESSED . . . can I say it again louder? . . . OBSESSED with remodelista.com. Their daily emails are the only ones—aside from PageDaily, of course!!—that I read religiously every morning. I want to live in every single home they profile and pretty much want to own every product they feature. I also love theselby.com, a fantastically voyeuristic blog by photographer Todd Selby.
Food Blog & Cooking Show Fave
TO MAKE: My friend Tamra has a fantastic cooking-show video blog called tamradaviscookingshow.com. Tamra is an amazing cook and a TV/film director, so what could be better than a self-directed cooking show? How about the new cookbook she wrote, Make Me Something Good to Eat, which she sells on her site. She’s also married to Beastie Boy Mike D, so music is in her family’s genes—needless to say, the music on her blog always rocks. Tamra’s focus is healthy cooking for parents and kids . . . with an emphasis on the kids. Example: school bake-sale red velvet cupcakes made with beets, not food coloring!
JUST BECAUSE: Fifi-lapin.blogspot.com. Need I say more? Could you just die over the cuteness factor here? Fifi is a fashionista “lapin” (French for bunny) who reports on fashion and “wears” all of the latest runway looks.
New Cool Blogs
And two of my new fave blogs—kkisthenewblack.com and tellmewherethisis.com by husband-and-wife team Karen Kozlowski and Michael Edwards. Karen is a stylist like me, and her cool-girl perspective on things both fashion and just plain fashion-able is totally refreshing and unique. Michael is an incredible editorial portrait photographer, whose photographs have appeared in major publications, like New York Times Magazine.
