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 […]

I started the March New and Noteworthy post earlier in the month but got sidetracked. It actually worked out well since I was able to add a few more things that should be on your radar this month. We could really use more hotels on the Upper East Side so I hope someone builds or […]

It’s the first day of Spring and Aries season so even I’m ready to embrace color now. Luckily, Net-a-Porter has a lot of New Arrivals that will help you shake off the winter blues with shades of pink, lavender, yellow, green, and more. I’ve put three outfits together to help get you started but all […]

I saw a few influencers pull out summer sun dresses, bare summer sandals, and raffia basket bags last week when the weather warmed up. I am have been firmly taught that you only wear clothes appropriate to the current month and season no matter what the temperature. That means no summer clothes in March. It’s […]

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that my early birthday present to myself was a vintage Hermès Kelly Retourne 35 in vert foncé (dark green) gulliver leather. I was actually looking at a green Kelly last summer but funny enough, I think interior designer Chris Benz bought the one I was eyeing. […]

I’ve posted the directions on how to buy my Paris Travel Guide for 2024 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 […]

I think a lot of people forget that it can stay chilly in many places through the month of May, sometimes even June. But there are often huge fluctuations in temperature so you need to be prepared for anything. I saw snow on the weather forecast for yesterday morning and it might be close to […]

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 […]

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

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

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 […]
