Even though we just got out of a heat wave, I’ve already been shopping for fall. I always joke that if you’re not sweating when you’re buying a coat, you’re doing it wrong because by the time you actually need one, they will be sold out. I’ve put together a few transitional outfits for fall […]

If you missed the classic French film La Piscine at the Film Forum last summer, you still have a few chances to see it on the big screen at Metrograph this month. I think the reason that the restored film from 1969 ended up running for 18 weeks at Film Forum after only being scheduled […]

I’ve posted the directions on how to buy my Paris Guide in Instagram stories and in one of my Bon Weekend posts but it seems to be getting lost. Since people are always messaging me and asking how to buy it, I thought I should create a dedicated blog post so it’s easier to locate. […]

My dear friend Andrew Brown, and interior designer based in Birmingham, Alabama, celebrated his birthday in Zanzibar this year. I was so inspired by his trip that I decided to create outfits based on the colors of his photos. I started with the burnt orange terracotta tiles as inspiration from the first photo take in […]

Ben and Jen Take Paris

07 . 27 . 22

Just in case you haven’t been following my Instagram stories, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been in Paris with four of their children on a family holiday. It’s also a bit of a honeymoon since they just tied the knot in Las Vegas and a birthday trip to celebrate Jennifer’s 53rd birthday on Monday. […]

In case you have been living under a rock, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are on their honeymoon in Paris along with their three daughters. I loved the floral linen dress that Jennifer wore to lunch today and some careful sleuthing discovered that it is by Reformation and only costs $248. I think it’s the […]

Since the current heatwave shows no signs of abating, it feels like the right time to post my tips for humidity proof hair. I have very thick and naturally wavy highlighted hair that also blows out smooth very easily. My hair has not looked that bad this summer so I feel like I have finally […]

I usually post what’s new and noteworthy on Fridays but seeing as how it’s 9,000 degrees everywhere, I thought you might like some ideas of things to read and watch while you are at home sitting in front of the air conditioner. The team behind Baron’s Cove, my favorite hotel in Sag Harbor, have just […]

The most asked question when I was in London was whether I was attending Wimbledon. I really wanted to but I had other obligations that prevented me from seeing a match on the iconic grass courts. I have talked to my friends about going next year though. I love watching the tournament and started this […]

Their breathtaking project in Barcelona has been featured on ArchitecturalDigest.com this week with photos by Douglas Friedman. I had the pleasure of seeing behind the scenes photos and progress updates on this remarkable home and I’m so proud to see the […]

If you are lucky enough to get invited to someone’s home or boat this summer, you definitely want to take a hostess gift so you get invited again next year. As I’ve mentioned before, I love giving and ephemeral gift like food or wine with something that will they will have once the others have […]

While most of the country has been experiencing a heat wave, things have been very up and down in New York and even in Sag Harbor, where I spent last week. I feel like I have to have three seasons of clothing on hand at any given time. But at least there are some good […]

Nine Orchard

06 . 22 . 22

I love living uptown but we are seriously lacking in the hotel department. That’s why I’m very jealous of the new hotel, Nine Orchard, that just opened downtown. DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners has transformed a 12-story Lower East Side Beaux-Arts landmark building into an elegant hotel and culinary destination. Originally built in 1912, the […]

To help you prepare for summer, she is offering HC readers a special summer reduction […]

I know I have slacked off on the blog since before I went to Paris. During the pandemic, it was hard to post because of brain fog but I’m not sure why I can’t get focused lately even though I have so much to post. I’m in Sag Harbor this week so there will be […]

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Platinum Jubilee celebrations have been taking place across London to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. It’s been fun to watch the coverage on tv and from my friends on Instagram. I might be going to London in early July so I’ve been taking lots […]

Hope you are enjoying the long holiday weekend. I thought I would put together a post of some of my favorite things on sale right now and remind you that many of the sales end on Monday. I loved this Voluminous Poplin Dress so much that I bought all three colors: stripes, white, and navy. […]
