As you get ready to leave on your summer vacations and holidays, Saks has your outfits covered no matter where you are headed. I’ve put three together to help get you started on your chic travels. If you are headed to London, England for Chelsea in Bloom or Wimbledon this summer, you definitely need a […]

While Memorial Day is a time we should be remembering and honoring people who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, it also signifies the unofficial start of summer in the US. But it’s also a great time to shop and save during the Memorial Day Weekend Sales. I’ve rounded up all the […]

I know some of you are going to be mad about this post. You are waiting for more summer fashion posts, I get it, but it’s been so chilly and grey in NYC and according to my West Coast friends, Los Angeles. My double faced wool coats and even my Toteme Trench are too heavy […]

My friend Heidi Wynne’s summer photo shoot took place at the Cornelius Wynkoop Stone House where George Washington was once a guest. Built in 1767 and located in the village of Stone Ridge, in the Hudson Valley of New York, Heidi thought this historic estate was the perfect setting for her classic collection of block […]

One of my friends in the Hamptons alerted me that the historic Hannibal French House on Main Street in Sag Harbor is on the market with Compass for $18.9 Million. I’ve posted about this house many time and always photograph it when I am walking in town but it was very nice to see more […]

One of the most asked questions recently was what to wear to Italy this summer. There is no better place to find the chicest fashions for your summer travels than Net-a-Porter. I put together three outfits inspired by three Italian destinations that would work well across the country and Europe as well. The first is […]

My Mother’s Day gift guide this year is a little late but you can also use the recommendations for hostess gifts this summer too. If you owe your success to your mother, you owe her this chic Prada Floral Printed Saffiano Leather Bag. How about a Cotton and Silk Sweater in a pretty hue for […]

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of touring the Kips Bay Decorator Show House for 2024 and can’t believe I’ve been covering this annual event for 17 years. This year’s house at 125 East 65th Street in New York opens on May 2nd and runs until May 28, 2024. The 12,000 square-foot Georgian designed townhouse by […]

One of my Instagram followers messaged me about sandals last week. She was having trouble finding something she liked for summer so I said I’d work on a post. I hope more styles are coming this summer because I had a hard time finding anything really exciting and most sandals out right now are very […]

The weather is getting warmer and I’ve had a few requests for my annual Perfect Pairing post. A white or ivory top with jeans is chic yet comfortable and can be worn anywhere. It can go from the work day to the weekend and from walking the dog to date night. If it’s chilly, add […]

Since I moved to NYC 23 years ago, Bloomingdale’s has always been a part of my life. I visit the iconic store less in person now since it’s so easy to shop online but they also offer free services like buy online pickup in store, in-store or curbside pickup, personal stylists and personal shoppers, in-personal […]

This is a multifaceted post so buckle up. It encompasses some of the new things I bought myself for my birthday which was yesterday (April 18th) and how I’m wearing these things with pieces I already own. Sometimes, I wonder if you are bored of my posting the same Toteme trench coat I bought in […]

I’ve flirted with color recently but I can’t escape my comfort zone of neutrals. Beige doesn’t have to be boring when you mix it with chic textured accessories and Net-a-Porter has the best options whether you are heading to East Hampton or Essaouira. For the plane or car ride, I’d start with the cream Ribbed […]

April is definitely not the cruelest month this year. There are so many great things to see, do, watch, and try whether you are experiencing beautiful spring weather or are hiding out from April showers. I’m sure many of you are familiar with Matouk linens and will be excited to know that they just opened […]

It’s already felt like it’s been raining a lot in NYC and this week’s forecast is rain for the entire week. It’s dreary and depressing so let’s focus on one thing we can control – how to dress for the weather. Parisian women will wear a trench coat rain or shine since they tend to […]

ME+EM has some beautiful pastel shades of lilac and pale lemon that will brighten your spirits on even the dreariest spring day. As is the case with so many of their pieces, you can mix and match them to create multiple different outfit combinations. This is especially helpful when you are packing for a trip. […]

Winter has returned to NYC but I know warm weather is just around the corner and that means weddings and other events are too. I’ve put together five great outfits from Saks to help get you ready for dress season. Saks Friends and Family 25% off new arrivals event is also happening until Thursday, March […]

I posted this travel advice post in summer 2023 but I thought it might be good to update it and repost it again as people head off to spring break and start making their summer travel plans for 2024. Most of the questions I’m asked each week inevitably end up being travel related so I […]
