Cause of the Day: Pura Vida Bracelets, Arm candy for all

  I always thought the beachy-Bohemian layered bracelet look was only for surfer girls and beach bums but most recently, I’ve discovered I can make it work!

Cause of the Day: V Magazine and David Yurman collaborate to help save the music

I first fell in love with V Magazine when I saw the  V Magazine-decorated windows of my favorite newspaper and magazine shop on 14th street between 6th and 7th Avenue in New York City.

Retail Pioneers: Warby Parker Rx glasses are charitable, cost-efficient and cool

Remember the 1980s? Or the 1990s? I definitely do.  I remember growing up with glasses was definitely not cool. My first pair of glasses were these ugly thick rimmed fuschia glasses that my mom had to pay “way too much money for” and I hated them.  Fast forward almost 20 years later, we have contact […]
