Nyoka SkinCare

Hydration is key this time of year, which is why I’m loving the Clarisonic Opal. The gentle sonic infusion technology instantly hydrates the eyes at 7,500 micro-massaging vibrations/minute for max serum absorption. Nyoka SkinCare, $185. Ask about the Fashion IQ special. (941) 323-1219

Jack Vinales Antiques

You’ll see stacked bracelets everywhere you look on stylish big-city streets. Make it happen with vintage Bakelite bangles—easy and so chic! Jack Vinales Antiques, call for price, (941) 957-0002

Meklit Hadero

Not everybody can combine prints and colors. But at the opening-night party for the Ringling International Arts Festival, singer/songwriter Meklit Hadero showed her fashion artistry, mixing her pistachio-colored python maxi with a charcoal paisley wrap and chevron clutch. 

Hank Battie

Can’t help but admire Hank Battie, at the Second Chance Last Opportunity luncheon, with his gray two-button peak lapel and windowpane custom suit, which popped with shades of pink. Nice touch with the Mezlan cap toed kicks and leather “male bag,” as he calls it.



Number of years La Musica’s Sonata a Due has been entertaining Sarasota. Join violist Daniel Avshalomov and pianist Derek Han for an intimate recital and dinner at the Charles Ringling mansion, Dec. 5. $150. (941) 371-6798

Brooklyn perfumer Christopher Brosius

Brooklyn perfumer Christopher Brosius has a handsome scent for your fella, and it has a manly name—Burning Leaves. He’ll love the smoky scent of burning maple leaves. Juno & Jove, $65.
