In my exciting new move to Manhattan, I found myself wanting to wear more swanky black and just dress it up or down depending on the occasion. Pauline, who is the founder of Covered Perfectly, has created some of the most versatile, flattering and comfortable shirts. I chose the “Cold Shoulder” style in black. It has plenty of material where you want it and yet is slimming at the same time. And as a photographer, I love a bit of peek boo of a woman’s shoulder. Personally, no woman of ANY age ever needs to hide the top of her shoulders as they are always photogenic as you can see from the way too many shots I had my photo assistant take. And I have to confess I wore the top 3 times in one week (yes, washed after the second wearing).

I couldn’t help it, it was just the perfect top for working in my photo studio with clients, or having dinner with some LA friends who were visiting, and even when I went to see the Broadway Musical, Hamilton! It was breathable and dressy, a tad sexy but super discreet and totally feminine!. Now, I that a hot NY summer is approaching, I want to also get it in white and then head out for the Hamptons with my ripped jeans rolled up barefoot on the beach.

Mind you, I need to actually find a friend who lives in the Hamptons, but with my new super fun “Cold Shoulder” top I’m sure I won’t have any problems making some new warm friends…..see what I did there 😉
