Like Coco Chanel, I love luxury. And luxury lies not in richness and ornateness but in the absence of vulgarityΓÇª My background is TV (the newsy side), film production, PR and marketing. I love things that are well made and carefully constructed. Very often this equation equals expensive. You might pay a little more, but you know youΓÇÖll get to love it that much longer. Remember the old saying buy it cheap, buy it twice? I am the self professed info-nut on all the best things to do, visit, shop and eat, and where and how to live it up on the high-end. But I can also let you know how to get the best deal on luxury offerings. And that is the best of both worlds. Tweet her @RocktheLook.
