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 […]

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 […]

Easter Gift Guide 2024

03 . 21 . 24

In case you weren’t paying attention, Easter is earlier on March 31st this year. I’ve put together gifts in case you haven’t shopped yet and a few fashions suggestions for you to wear. Hopefully, it’s not going to snow where you live. This Floral Fauna Print Draped Midi Dress would be pretty for Easter or […]

The Cinabre Shop and Les Suites in the 9th arrondissement in Paris have been on my radar for some time but when two influencers posted their stays during Paris Fashion Week, I realized I hadn’t seen a full look inside. Cinabre was founded as a fashion company by Alexandre Chapellier in 2011 to make ties, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
