LOOKING GOOD

Spring and summer are just ahead. Are you fashion-ready? {credit}
New York Fashion Week has come and gone. While the focus was on what to wear for the upcoming fall and winter seasons, spring and summer are just ahead. It may be difficult to imagine dressing for warmer months when the city’s temperatures rise only to be hit by more snow the next day, but here are some Spring/Summer 2015 style trends to inspire you fashionistas in the meantime.

That '70s Show
Flared pants, billowy long-sleeved maxi dresses, and bohemian tops are key pieces this spring. Think Halston, hippies, blocks of color, and anything that channels the 1970s. Also, if you were all about the high-waist jeans trend circa 2006, this is the perfect time to pull them out of your closet.

Groupie Chic   
Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2015 style features an updated rocker chick look, complete with smoky eyes and perfectly disheveled tresses. This trend is great for city nightlife, especially since, no matter what the season, the color black is a permanent staple in a New York woman’s wardrobe. Have fun with this look by incorporating sequins, textures, skinny scarves, and whatever you picture yourself wearing if you ever uttered the words “I’m with the band.”

Jumpsuits  
Jumpsuits, playsuits, rompers… Call them what you will, but they’re here to stay. This season’s jumpsuits are tailored and sophisticated, rather than the more casual jersey cotton versions. But a short, stretchy playsuit is still the perfect pick for an afternoon in Central Park. Wear this dressy black suit on a Saturday night out with the girls.

Your Boyfriend’s Shirt   
Shirtdresses are a wonderful choice when you need a break from the typical sundress. You can pair it with anything from sexy wedges, to your favorite Keds, making it one of the most effortless ways to be on-trend this season.

Wide-Legged Pants
Skinny jeans may be great for showing off the butt you’ve been working for all winter, but they’re not exactly the most comfortable choice once NYC’s summer humidity kicks in. Wide-legged pants are the perfect alternative and tie in this year's menswear trend. Wear them at the office with a classic white collared shirt, or with your favorite tank top for an easy weekend look. At night, a high-waist pair and a cropped top make a fierce ensemble.

As a writer, you spend a lot of your time at home working. Do you like it quiet, or with some background noise, such as the TV or music ?

by Lauren Malamala
"Concrete jungle where dreams are made of..."{credit}
New York is the focus of countless chart-topping songs. I can’t single out one as my ultimate favorite, but I was able to narrow the list to ten that I think are perfect representatives of NYC.

Being a songwriter, I thought it was important to choose tracks that portrayed all aspects of life in the city, both good and bad – so here they are, in no particular order.

5 Reasons I'm Excited About 'Younger'

I am getting more and more excited with every passing day about the new NYC-based television show, Younger, which premieres on TV Land on March 31. In case you don't know much about the plot, here's the gist.

Younger tells the story of a 40-something Jersey woman who can't get a job or a date. Liza's husband of 20 years has left her high and dry, and she has no choice but to reinvent herself as she tries to re-enter the workforce. Realizing that her lack of skills and age are working against her, Liza pretends to be a twenty-something and lands a job in a New York City ad firm, and a hot, young boyfriend to boot.
