The weather is finally warming up! One of my favorite things about spring style is the introduction to pops of color. I think we can all agree that spring brings joy with its refreshing warm weather and bright blooming flowers! I took a lot of inspiration from this feeling when designing my sp... Continue Reading

It’s interesting that you hear a lot about transparency in politics these days, but where you're actually seeing it is in fashion. It’s the season of the illusion. The unexpected illusion of seeing through fabric or an unexpected cut out. Of course, you don't really want to sho... Continue Reading

I received a lot of questions about my background and where I started, so I thought I would give you all a quick snapshot of my life up to this point.

How many times do we say, "Lead with the bag!". The handbag is the most visible accessory we wear, as it's generally the largest. This week we decided to take four of our "Looks" and decide what the bag for each look "says" about the woman wearing it. Hey, maybe we could rename t... Continue Reading

I can't believe that this Friday is our last show until next year! (March 8, to be specific!) However, I think we're finishing with a bang. The show this week could be titled, "Leather & Lace," (move over Stevie Nicks). And, with these being two of the biggest trends for the fall season, we're definitely covering them in this show.
One thing I think every woman would love to have in her wardrobe is luxury leather. Not your basic good value, but a real splurge. There's a reason that high-end European designers make them a sta... Continue Reading

More than just a pretty face, Vera Bradley bags are pretty inside and out. I started collecting Vera before they were offered at the Q. My daughters, Lauren and Chelsea, and I have quite a collection of wristlets, totes, weekenders, and handbags. We've also enjoyed giving them as gifts. I think a handbag is more than just a way to carry your stuff. It expresses your mood, style, and attitude.
For me, the Vera TSV says, “fun, fashion, and flexibility." I should also add "first." You can be the first to get this convertible silhouette in the newes... Continue Reading

We had some truly incredible guests on last season’s Lisa Robertson Show. Mark Zunino, Wendy Williams, Camila Alves, gosh...I’m still pinching myself. While some were old friends, most were new faces, and as a result, I have a few new favorite designers…one of whom is Rachel Pally.
Rachel has this incredible way of fusing simplicity and glamour, which makes virtually all of her pieces perfect for everyday or dressy occasions. Perhaps it’s that she’s a true California girl with inherent style savvy. But she says her inspiration actually came from her days ... Continue Reading

Thank you for your support for the first season of The Lisa Robertson Show…I can’t believe it’s over! Because so many of you LOVED "The Looks” we did this season, we wanted to keep them coming.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see strong? Do you see sexy? I think sometimes we think we have to choose. And I think sometimes "strong" can be confused with not looking feminine, but I disagree. When I think with the fashion of today, we can be both, and if we want to be our best, we should embrace it.
They say you never have a second chance to make a first impression, and a lot of that first impression is the visual of how we "carry" ourselves, and what we wear.
Let’s start with the attitude. If... Continue Reading

Last Monday night was the distinguished Met Costume Institute Gala, also known as the “Academy Awards of the East Coast,” which celebrates the opening of The Metropolitan Museum’s annual fashion exhibit. This event is always reserved for the who’s who of the fashion industry and has a guest list that’s hand-picked by Vogue Editor Anna Wintour.

When you think of American sophistication and luxury, two designers immediately come to my mind: Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors. These gentleman took the European concept of luxury as a starting point and went on to infuse it with an energy and point of view that makesit uniquely American. I like to think of Ralph Lauren as creating the design heritage, and Michael Kors as making it look like it just got off a private plane. Their looks are a mix of elements: always elegant, a little unexpected, and never "paint by number." I like to study them, whether I'm wearing them or ... Continue Reading

My uniform of choice in the summertime is a maxi dress. The right summer dress is much more flattering than shorts, covers a multitude of sins in the "cellulite and/or I didn't have time to shave today" categories, and draws attention to the upper body, where most women are naturally leaner.
There are some good rules to remember when choosing a great summer dress.
Find a style that works with a traditional bra if you're not comfortable wearing a strapless bra on long, hot summer days.
Find a good convertible bra to give you as many options on necklines as ... Continue Reading

When I was growing up, my mother always made our house look so nice for Christmas. Our tree, especially, always looked beautiful. I loved watching her decorate and today when I decorate my home, I think of her. Last year, so many of you watched the interview with Courtney Cason at my home during the holidays. (Thank you, by the way, for all of your kind compliments.) Then, when I posted photos of this year’s decorations on Facebook, again, so many of you responded with likes and comments. And, I got lots of questions. In the video below, I’ll show you how I decorated my living... Continue Reading

Last week, we talked about how to do a red lip, which is a great way to update your look. The "red lip look" from last week, takes a number of steps, and there were a lot of questions on how to do a quick lip, if you still want visual impact. So in this week's video, Albany and I discuss a quick, out-the-door look that you can do at a stop light if you have to!
I will not be surprised if I see Albany trying lip stain. She seemed genuinely interested. I used It Cosmetics’ “Love Story” in the video, just in case you were wondering. I like it becau... Continue Reading

Leave it to Bruce Makowsky to set the style bar with two of the hottest most-wanted things this season. Color and texture. A220355 Woven Embossed Glove Leather Shopper and Wristlet. Can you say a-maz-ing?! If you're one who doesn't like to be noticed, then this is not the bag for you. If you're one who likes to live life out loud with a fashion purpose, then this, my fellow fashionista, is most certainly the bag for you.
The colors include cocoa, nutmeg, black, mulberry, navy, and truffle. Mr. B. Makowsky does not hold anything back when it comes down to the quality of leather, either. It's t... Continue Reading

I get a lot of questions about wardrobe and make up (which I take as a huge compliment, thank you!). And, while I may not get to answer all your questions here or on Facebook, I promise I'm doing my best. Lately, I've had a lot of questions on the red lip color I've been wearing. It's a combination of Napoleon Perdis and Bare Minerals. I usually start with the Bare Minerals Natural lip liner, apply a few dots of the Napoleon Perdis red gloss, blend it over the entire lip, blot, then apply a sheer Buxom in the center. Sometimes, I use one of the... Continue Reading

Travel has always held a romantic connotation for me: strolling through exotic airports (à la Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca) with possibility, excitement, and adventure lurking behind every corner. I'm this fascinating stranger only in my daydreams. Travel, in this day and age, is burdensome. Security, weight restrictions, and fees are only some of the hurdles travelers encounter on their way to varied destinations, which is why finding the right luggage is crucial.
I find designer luggage not practical (unless flying via private jet), so I look for affordable, but stylish pieces. The ... Continue Reading

I’m sure you’ve already done a little wardrobe updating for the fall and winter seasons. But do you have something cobalt blue? A velvet lace top or jacket?

Recently, I attended a meeting regarding the upcoming TSV from Tignanello: Pebble Leather Convertible Shoulder Bag with Braided Accents. Before every fashion-oriented TSV, the designers, planners, buyers, and stylists need to be on the same page regarding styling direction. This is a crucial part of my job at QVC, but I rarely, if ever, take the “it’s my job” approach. When I look at a TSV, the first question I ask myself is “Do I want to buy this?” From there I go to, “Yes, but do I need it?” Then to, “Okay, but will I u... Continue Reading

Apparently there’s “water” in my face. I don’t really know what that means, but when it comes from Stan Herman, zodiac enthusiast (AND top-selling QVC vendor AND fashion industry pioneer), I take it as a compliment. In this second segment from my interview with Stan, we talk about his knowledge of the zodiac, but we also talk about the humanitarian work he has done for causes like Fashion Targets Breast Cancer and AIDS. Millions have been raised for both foundations during his expansive career and lucky for us, his advocacy days are far from over.
