I am featured on The Style Letters, all about spring wardrobe choices -- it finally is looking like spring -- and my love of trench coats. Also the story of my new Dolce & Gabbana trench.

As you can guess, I'm good at sitting still, except I still run my mouth throughout the whole thing, practically.
