The weather is getting warm in New York so it’s time to post about my favorite outfit again. A white top with jeans is chic yet comfortable and can be worn anywhere. If it’s chilly, add a blazer or light coat. If it’s hot, switch out thee flats for sandals. It can go from work […]

I just happened to see an email in my inbox on Friday announcing that the house seen in the film Basic Instinct is for sale. The iconic film was released on March 20, 1992 so perhaps they are trying to take advantage of the 30th anniversary. In my opinion, there are some issues with the […]

The switch to Daylight Saving Time this weekend means we are about to spring forward to more light and warmer weather.

While it feels like world is about to end there are a few good things happening this month.

Also, I’ve […]

I apologize for the lack of posts for the past week and a half. I was having issues with the website, I also had a friend in New York, and then war was waged on Ukraine by Russia. Every time I think there is a light at the end of the tunnel, something else happens. […]

Anyone in the market for an abandoned fixer-upper 16th-century palazzo in Italy with frescoes by Niccolò Contestabili? I first came across Palazzo Damiani through the instagram account of Paolo Abate. Luckily, he mentioned the fresco artist which led me to the real estate listing. It has 15 bedrooms so perhaps you could turn it into […]

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve put together some pretty pink pieces to brighten up your day. XOXO, HC Prettiest pink silk-georgette midi dress.

Cour des Vosges

While I was working on my posts about the film France and 24 Place des Vosges, I came across a very chic hotel. Cour des Vosges sits at 19 Place des Vosges and is the only hotel with views of the square from every room. The 17th-century historic site is known as the Hôtel de […]

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that you never know what might be behind those large wooden doors in Paris. The last time I stayed in the City of Light, I rented an apartment at 8 rue du Pas de la Mule which happens to sit right next door to 24 Place des Vosges, the location […]

Editor’s Note: If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I was dealing with a pretty bad case of food poisoning last week. It began Wednesday evening when I was working on this post. I’m happy to say that I’m finally feeling better and glad to be back at the blog. Last […]

There comes a time each winter when I want to burn all my cold-weather clothes. That time arrived today. I’m sick of all my grey coats and sweaters and could use a pop of color. I’ve been loving all the pretty pastel coats I’ve been seeing online lately and they’d be a great way to […]

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 […]
