There are two different tours that are possible for the first evening of your stay, the King’s Apartments or the Queen’s Apartments, and depend […]

I realized that just telling you to add a pop of red to your outfits isn’t helpful without showing you how. I’ve put together five outfits from dressy to casual to give you an idea of how you can incorporate this bold hue into your wardrobe for late summer into fall. I loved the yellow […]

Color My World

I’m a little nervous about this post. I know it feels a bit out of left field but I like to keep you on your toes. Everyone is clamoring for fall fashions which usually means neutrals and wool fabrics but there is another theme for fall which is pastel and bright colors. You can wear […]

But recently Franck Audoux, the co-founder of Le Chateaubriand and Cravan owner, has partnered with Moët Hennessy on a second larger Cravan location in the heart of Saint-Germain. The French who […]

The reason I get so excited about fall is because it’s New York’s best season. It can still be quite hot into October though so I’ve put together an array of pieces that can be mixed and matched when it’s still warm and then can easily transition to cooler temperatures. If you aren’t into skirts, […]

The Dries Van Noten store on Quai Malaquais is one of my favorite places in Paris. I always tell people to go inside to look around even if they can’t afford anything since the flowers, fashion, and interior design is infinitely inspiring. Down the way at 9 Quai Malaquais is the equally impressive men’s store […]

There comes a point each summer when I want to burn my summer clothes. I have not reached that point yet but I am ready to start thinking about fall fashions and planning out my wardrobe. I’ve already started buying some things too so I thought I’d put together a first look post. I’m sure […]

I don’t recommend ever visiting NYC in July but August can often be quite pleasant. Not the whole month mind you. I’m sure we’ll get another oppressive heat wave at some point but the weather this week has been delightful. The light in August also starts to get lower and warmer and you can feel […]

It’s time for our annual Humidity Proof Hair post and the beginning of Leo season couldn’t be a better time, since Leos like Jennifer Lopez are known for their flowing locks. I actually started this post last week but I had some personal things to clear off my plate first. This post might actually be […]

Most of the questions I’m asked each week inevitably end up being travel related. I started this travel advice post months ago but I got sidetracked so this felt like a good time to finally post it so you can navigate your summer trips with ease. I also might come back and make updates and […]

This is always a quiet time for shopping as I anxiously await fall fashions to arrive in stores and online. The things I’m eyeing, buying, and trying right now need to be able to transition to September and October when it can still be quite hot. It’s now that I start choosing pieces that are […]

I started this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post before I left London and spent every day this week trying to finish it to no avail. As much as I love traveling, it really throws me off my game so I’m happy to be home so I can get back on track. But because I’ve posted so […]

We had some great looks on actress Jennifer Lawrence this week while she filmed a commercial on the streets on New York. Model Kendall Jenner returned from Paris, where she looked very ladylike, and also wore two great navy looks around NYC. The more I looked at the images together, I realized you could mix […]

I love following actress Melissa George who lives between Paris and Provence to give me my fix of France when I’m back in the US. Her 17th-century hôtel particulier, Callemant d’Autane, was renovated and restored with architectural designer Diego Delgado-Elias who wrote on Instagram, “We have carefully preserved original features such as frescoes and moldings.

If you one of the few people not on holiday like everyone else on Instagram right now, I have some suggestions for things to do and see this month. Deux Moi has pretty much ruined restaurants in New York so make a reservation at Sartiano’s before she posts about it on Instagram. The new restaurant […]
