North Meets East

December is only half way through and like most monthly magazine editors, I’m already getting close to wrapping up our February issue. Those of you planning a trip to Tahoe will want to check out my fashion piece on cool snow gear. But for those skiing and boarding enthusiasts, who are already heading north for the holidays, stop by The North Face (180 Post St., 415-433-3223) this weekend for its limited edition NSE collection.

Party Perfect

It’s that time of year again when I’m fielding those ubiquitous what-to-wear-to-the-office-holiday-party questions from family and friends. Is an LBD too expected? Is this mini-dress a little too mini? Is cleavage ever ok? (The answers to the questions should be no, probably and “definitely not.”)
