Wunderbar

08 . 18 . 15

After three days of 90 degree temperatures, I’m even more ready for fall. I can’t wait for cozy coats and sweaters and trips to European cities like Vienna. The Austrian city is where Bergdorf Goodman Pre-Fall 2015 Magazine photographed these very chic fashions including the Andrew Gn coat above. I’ve never been to Austria but I’m […]

The Oscars are the last of the award shows which means that everyone can take off their Spanx and eat a cheeseburger now. The red carpet started off slow but built up steam when Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Watts, and Sienna Miller showed up. But it was Julianne Moore above in custom Chanel (Karl made it for […]

Everyone tells you to bring an umbrella to Paris because you never know when it might rain but you should honestly pack a hat.  Sometimes it’s a just a quick passing sprinkle and it’s not worth putting up your umbrella. The narrow sidewalks also make it a bit hard to navigate with one too.  That’s […]

Long time readers will remember my aversion to pink.  Well, this awful winter has left even me longing for the cheerful affect of a little color. I actually fell in love with a pink jacket from J.Crew when I saw it at their presentation last year.  It turned out to be a very expensive Collection […]

Pajama Party

01 . 03 . 14

New York woke up to six inches of snow blanketing the city today.  Seems like a perfect day to stay in bed and watch movies and read. If you didn’t receive new pajamas for Christmas, I suggest some of these chic options. Some of them are even nice enough to wear on the street should […]

My Chic Vintage Source

11 . 18 . 13

Someone recently told me they liked that all my Chanel bags were different and unique.  Meaning, I wasn’t carrying the ubiquitous black quilted 2.55 flap bag.  Not that there is anything wrong with the classic Chanel style but sometimes it’s fun to mix things up.  My not so secret source for all my vintage Chanel […]

Secondhand Chic

02 . 02 . 13

I don’t know what I love more about Vaunte, the secondhand treasures from some of the city’s chicest women or the photos of them in their equally chic homes.  Actually, the best is finding your sartorial soul mate who wears the same size in shoes.  Happy shopping and bon weekend!

Chic at Chanel

01 . 31 . 13

I wasn’t invited to Scotland for the Chanel Metiers d’Art show at Linlithgow Palace in December but I was invited to the New York showroom to see the pre-fall 2013 collection recently.  We all know Chanel is known for its amazing textiles and embroidery but you can’t appreciate it until you see it up close.  My favorite pieces […]

Classic Chanel

06 . 10 . 12

The Little Black Jacket exhibition by Chanel had me thinking about that other iconic item, the Chanel quilted purse.  I’m lucky to own one vintage woven version but not the classic 2.55 model. It’s the bag you can use forever and pass down to the next generation.  Maybe I’ll buy myself to celebrate the publication […]

I have a meeting in Soho today and while I’m down there, I can’t wait to stop by The Little Black Jacket exhibition. Karl Lagerfeld photographed over 100 iconic people in the iconic little black jacket for a new book The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited by  Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld that will be released this […]
