Oscar de la Renta’s Life Through the Years — Dominican Born Oscar de la Renta was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. On His Way Left the Dominican Republic to study painting at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid. Client Relations Worked in the Madrid salon of Cristóbal Balenciaga. His job was to sketch dresses to send to clients.

Spa Week Arrives Just in Time — It's Spa Week and the timing couldn't be better. Cold temperatures and dry air are skin and hair's worst enemy. There's no better complement to a refreshed autumn look than supple skin and a zenlike attitude. Participating spas like Red Door Spa, Elements Massage and Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa are offering a range of services for $50 each.

What to Wear This Week: Oct. 13 — This week, as you suss out seasonal trends to court, borrow a few style notes from the mature fashion set.

What to Wear This Week, Oct. 6: Sensory Overload, No Longer a Faux Pas? — Head-to-toe matching was popular at the spring 2015 shows, which ended last Wednesday. Ensembles of the same print were seen at MaxMara, Chanel, Valentino, Giorgio Armani and Giles, posing an overdue question. What's wrong with matchy-matchy? Matchy outfits can seem a little jarring at first glance, but after time to process, they read as inspired, striking and smart.

What to Wear This Week: Sept. 29 — If the floor-to-ceiling Halloween decorations in your local drugstore aren't enough of an indication that summer is gone, maybe the dip in temperatures will be. Recent cool days have pushed some New Yorkers to forgo their standing pedicures and focus on transitional footwear combinations like socks with sandals, ankle boots with minidresses and sneakers with just about anything.

What to Wear This Week: Sept. 22 — During the recent New York spring shows, Marc Jacobs presented several cargo looks that seemed to borrow from a police officer's uniform. There were also military-inspired dresses at No. 21 and Gucci. Then, at Milan Fashion Week, we saw a similar idea at the Salvatore Ferragamo show.

Fall Fashion, Finally — Forecast: Low to mid-70s this week, possible precipitation on Tuesday. We're now easing into the cooler temperatures that make fall's arrival feel real. The New York Fashion Weekers have decamped and are now entering the second half of London Fashion Fashion Week. For everyone else, it's Monday in Manhattan.

Meet Our Guest Pinner: Soo Joo Park, Today’s Model — You've seen her before: 5-foot-10, frosty blond hair, an almond-shaped face with an icy, lingering gaze. She has walked for several leading houses. She was one of the cool kids in the fall DKNY campaign, starring Rita Ora. And her tower of sandy dreadlocks at Jeremy Scott's Moschino spring 2015 men's show in June was hard to forget.
