Grace Cotton Voile Maxi Dress One-Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuit Agua Bendita Marine Pareo Strappy Leather Flat Sandals Loewe Paula’s Ibiza […]

Anyone in the market for an abandoned fixer-upper 16th-century palazzo in Italy with frescoes by Niccolò Contestabili? I first came across Palazzo Damiani through the instagram account of Paolo Abate. Luckily, he mentioned the fresco artist which led me to the real estate listing. It has 15 bedrooms so perhaps you could turn it into […]

Think Pink

02 . 14 . 22

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve put together some pretty pink pieces to brighten up your day. XOXO, HC Prettiest pink silk-georgette midi dress. There is nothing more romantic than pink Manolo Blahnik embellished satin pumps. Something a little more reasonably priced is this pink suede shoulder bag. I love this pink handmade wool coat […]

Cour des Vosges

02 . 13 . 22

While I was working on my posts about the film France and 24 Place des Vosges, I came across a very chic hotel. Cour des Vosges sits at 19 Place des Vosges and is the only hotel with views of the square from every room. The 17th-century historic site is known as the Hôtel de […]

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that you never know what might be behind those large wooden doors in Paris. The last time I stayed in the City of Light, I rented an apartment at 8 rue du Pas de la Mule which happens to sit right next door to 24 Place des Vosges, the location […]

As soon as I saw the trailer for the new film France starring Léa Seydoux, I knew couldn’t wait to see her amazing fashions. France is currently available to stream on Kino Now before it opens to winder steaming release later this month. I watched last night and I think it might be my new […]

After working at home for the last two years, I know my apartment could use a refresh. If you’re feeling the same way, Walmart has a wide selection of great home decor and furniture that is available right now and not in nine months due to supply chain issues like at many other places. I’ve […]

Editor’s Note: If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I was dealing with a pretty bad case of food poisoning last week. It began Wednesday evening when I was working on this post. I’m happy to say that I’m finally feeling better and glad to be back at the blog. Last […]

There comes a time each winter when I want to burn all my cold-weather clothes. That time arrived today. I’m sick of all my grey coats and sweaters and could use a pop of color. I’ve been loving all the pretty pastel coats I’ve been seeing online lately and they’d be a great way to […]

Last year, someone I follow on Instagram posted a few photos just inside 973 Fifth Avenue. The decor looked very intriguing but I couldn’t find much about the house online then. When I posted an exterior photo of the front door in my Instagram Stories last week, a kind follower alerted me to the fact […]

While you are snowed in this weekend, I recommend that shop for Valentine’s Day. I’ve put together over 60 gifts for women, men, terrible teens, little kids, furry friends, and of course, yourself. One for them, two for me is always my motto. This pretty pink blazer would make a lovely gift for yourself for […]

One of my favorite Instagram accounts belongs to Valerie Leberichel who is the Paris based Communication and External Relations Director of the Italian brand Miu Miu. She’s probably the one people who has the most similar style to my own. Her wardrobe is based on classic pieces that can be mixed and matched which are […]

According to Country Life magazine, Benham Park, an exquisite neo-Classical house in Berkshire was, a call centre, complete with plasterboard ceiling and fluorescent lighting until the interior design firm of Albion Nord worked their magic for Bluedoor Advisors. “Albion Nord was appointed to project manage, interior design, procure the FF&E and dress the house. The interior design […]

I never met Pierre Durand but reading about him recently has made me wish I had known him. The late financier who co-founded The Chinese Porcelain Company lived an exquisitely elegant life out of the glare of the spotlight which is no easy feat in our online obsessed world and now his beautiful collections are […]

I wrote about these connected houses almost exactly five years ago and now they are available for the first time in 22 years. Architects Anne Fairfax and Richard Sammons of Fairfax and Sammons have put 183-185 West 4th Street on the market for $7.5 Million. If you don’t mind living across from a tattoo parlor, you’ll […]

Interior designer Timothy Corrigan posted photos of an 18th-century French chateau today that he was touring on behalf of a client. I love a mystery and couldn’t resist trying to find out more. One clue was that it was located south east of Paris and then someone commented that it was located in Burgundy. I […]

It snowed this morning in New York as you can see from the photo from Manhattan Bird Alert above. It looks pretty but makes taking walks and dining outside very difficult at the moment. I was very gung-ho to start this New Year but I already feel a bit uninspired and unmotivated. I found last […]

Now that the holidays are over, it feels like winter has really begun so it felt like the perfect time for a winter skincare post. The cold weather and winds can be harsh on skin outside but so can overheated interiors with a lack of humidity. I’ve put together all the products I’m using to […]

Every New Year’s Day, I set intentions for what I want to do in the coming year. It’s been very hard to plan anything the last two years but I’ve decided that this year I want to stop simply surviving and start thriving again. Only time will tell how far I get. White Felt Coat […]

A lot of people have asked for another post of what I bought myself recently and I finally had time to put it together today. Some things were Christmas presents to myself and others were items I purchased in the last few months. I can’t wear shoulder bags and tote bags with my Toteme winter […]
