There is nothing I love more than seeing what Parisians are wearing every day. During my two weeks in Paris, one thing started to stand out from day one, shearling coats. They seemed to be even more popular with men than women but by the end of my trip, they seemed to be neck and […]

If you’ve walked down Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris in the past few years, you might have noticed a renovation project happening by Chopard.

The temperature has finally turned cold this week in New York which means I’m swathed from head to toe in grey cashmere and wool. Grey is always my go to color for late fall and winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black. It also pairs well […]

Sometimes I forget that interior designer Remy Renzullo is so young since his style is so evolved. His apartments look as they belong to collector who’s lived in them for decades which is no doubt why is was tapped to refresh and redesign rooms at Castle Howard. It’s the perfect project for his sensibilities and […]

The weather has been so up and down lately that it makes it hard to figure out what to wear. I love the idea of mix and match pieces that can work for different temperatures and MATCHES has so many great options. I put together three outfits that can work anywhere but that I would […]

Yes, I am posting my first holiday gift guide for 2023 when it’s unseasonably warm and before Halloween has even arrived but the early bird gets the worm as they say. I slacked off my on gift guides last year because of my two week trip to Paris so I wanted to get a head […]

Laurent

Laurent restaurant has been a storied place in Paris since 1842 but it has recently undergone a refresh from the Paris Society group. I first made aware of the project when Cordélia de Castellane posted from inside the renovation. She’s been in charge of decor for many Paris Society restaurants including Laurent which has “pastel-colored […]

I was happy to see statement earrings on the Spring 2024 fashion week runways so I could feel confident that my purchases would still be in style next year. That also means you can feel assured if you want to add a pair or two or four to your wardrobe to update your look. They […]
