I’ve been trying to be more considerate about what I buy lately but I did buy a few things with an eye to the transitional weather and spring events and travel. I don’t wear black except for evening and have been wearing a J.Crew x Marie Marot navy pair of trousers all winter. Since they […]

I’ve really been enjoying the fall fashion shows the last few weeks. I especially loved all the inspiring color combinations coming out of Milan and Paris. The best were at Ferragamo, Bally, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, and Dries Van Noten. The strongest colors weaving their way though many collections are green, from avocado to olive, and […]

Resort Ready with Saks

02 . 27 . 24

I don’t know if I’ll make it to Palm Beach this season but if you have a warm weather trip coming up, Saks has you covered with everything you need for fun in the sun. If you don’t have a trip planned, you can get a jump start on your summer wardrobe. Green was one […]

Everyone is sick of winter right now so how are we going to brighten things up while still wearing winter clothes? How are we also going to transition as the weather warms up? My suggestion is to add something red to give us a little jolt of energy and a pop of color to brighten […]

Yes, I wear a lot of neutrals but they work in the colder months in NYC. When I go for color and pattern, it’s for resort trips and summer soirees. Sézane just launched their latest collection today photographed in an Italian palazzo and I went a little nutty buying dresses and tops for warmer weather. […]

Elle Fanning has recently toppled Jennifer Lawrence as my new favorite street style outfit inspiration celebrity. Elle has been in New York starring on Broadway in the play Appropriate which has been extended through June so I hope this means we’ll see even more of her fashion looks. Her style is most similar to my […]

At Sloane in London

02 . 22 . 24

A certain British interior designer has been decorating hotels all over Paris so it feels only fitting that a French interior has just designed the chicest and buzziest new hotel in London. At Sloane is a new hotel in Chelsea from Jean-Louis Costes, the man behind Hotel Costes, and Cadogan Estates who tapped legendary interior […]

February feels like it’s flying by but there’s still a lot of new things to do, see, watch, and try this month. The Madison Avenue Diptyque store took over the neighboring space and renovated to create one of the most beautiful boutiques in the city now and the biggest Diptyque store in the US. The […]

Last year, my Instagram friend Julien Devergnies asked me if I knew of the publication Frederic and what I thought since they reached out to see if they could photograph his house in Brussels. I was happy to advise him that it’s a wonderful magazine published by the fabric company Schumacher. I receive a physical […]

It’s a little warmer in NYC right now but this is known as “Fake First Spring” but the wintery weather will be back this week so I’m starting to think about fashions that can work with fluctuating temperatures. Luckily, NET-A-PORTER has many new season separates that are perfect for this transitional season. As a jumping […]

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 […]

One Skirt Five Ways

02 . 04 . 24

January was the dreary and depressing month in New York. But the sun is today and all is right with the world again. It is so hard to get inspired when you want to burn all your winter clothes but the ME+EM catalog arrived last week and I fell in love with this skirt and […]

One way to escape the January doldrums is to start shopping for Valentine’s Day. I’ve put together almost 60 gifts for women, men, teens, little kids, furry friends, and of course, yourself. One for them, two for me is my motto. Brighten up your wardrobe for February with this fuchsia double-breasted belted wool-blend felt coat. […]

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a dinner to celebrate the launch of the new Remy Renzullo x Carolina Irving & Daughters, Olympia and Ariadne Irving, collection launch on Moda Operandi. I haven’t seen Remy in person in years since he’s been spending more of his time in London working on Castle Howard. […]

I thought I would be a little more gung-ho to start this year but I forgot just how uninspiring January can be. It’s not an exciting new seasonal start like fall which has beautiful weather and all new fashions. It’s freezing cold and snowy in New York which makes everyone want to hunker down at […]

Pajama Party 2024

01 . 15 . 24

I’ve been hiding out in my pajamas this long holiday weekend after getting a peel from Oni Skincare on Friday. Now, we are expecting a big snowstorm and arctic temperatures so that’s another great reason to hunker down at home in your pajamas. I also love packing a chic pair of pajamas when I travel […]

The New Moon in Capricorn today is a great day to restart your new year and a perfect time for a little wardrobe refresh. Since I didn’t post my usual “what I bought” post for December and Paris, I thought I would combine some of the favorite things I bought at the end of last […]

I took some time off last week for a quick trip to Boston but now that I’m back, I need to get started on all my apartment organizing and decluttering projects. The big issue most people tackle in the new year is the dreaded closet clean out. I usually post a closet inspiration post each […]

One thing I wish I had asked for as a Christmas present is a stay at the Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay. The country estate hotel outside Paris has been completely renovated and updated by the French hospitality group, Paris Society. The location was originally a 12th-century Cistercian abbey and later a weekend estate of […]

I still can’t believe that 2024 is here. It feels like just yesterday when we were staying home in 2020. Time flies when you may or may not be having fun. But I love fresh starts and new beginnings. I love making lists and cracking open a fresh Smythson agenda just waiting to be filled […]
