Candle Club

10 . 22 . 16

The temperature dipped into the 40’s this morning in New York. Perfect weather to cozy up by a fire. If you don’t have a fireplace, the next best thing is to burn a woodsy or warm smelling candle. The scents of sandalwood, cedar, vetiver, patchouli, and amber are perfect for the autumn season. Below are […]

Visiting Violet Grey

02 . 14 . 16

One of the first placesI went shopping in Los Angeles last week was the boutique Violet Grey. The Melrose Place mecca for carefully curated beauty products did not disappoint. I saw a lot of things I already use which was gratifying like the Chanel Sublimage line which I swear is the key to surviving long plane […]

The Eye Has to Travel

02 . 06 . 13

If you missed the Diana Vreeland documentary, The Eye Has to Travel while it was in theaters, now you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home.  It was released onto DVD, iTunes, and on demand yesterday.  It’s filled with inspiring stories about the legendary fashion editor and is the perfect thing to […]

One New Yorker who many have admired over the years is Diana Vreeland.  You might remember my post on the book about her life and career, The Eye has to Travel.  It was written by Lisa Immordino Vreeland who is married to Diana’s grandson, Alexander Vreeland.  Since she is part of the family, Lisa was […]

Miami Makeover Update

03 . 13 . 12

I received a lot of great comments and emails about my friend’s condo makeover project.  One reader sent a question that I thought warranted a full post.  “I don’t mean this to sound critical but it will. It is a genuine question so here goes- I keep hearing what you want which is different from […]

The Eye Has to Travel

I knew that Lisa Immordino Vreeland who is married to Diana Vreeland’s grandson Alexander was working on a documentary about the legendary editor.  What I didn’t know is that there is also a book, The Eye Has to Travel, out October 1, 2011.  I read about it one of my ginormous September issue fashion magazines […]

“If you produce one book, you will have done something wonderful in your life.” – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis There are not one but two fabulous new books that chronicle the more than two decades that Jackie Kennedy Onassis spent as a book editor.  Jackie as Editor: The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Greg Lawrence […]

Bon Weekend

“You’ve got to have style.  It helps you get out bed in the morning.” – Diana Vreeland

I couldn’t just post Diana Vreeland’s home when her office was just as chic.  She began her magazine career at Harper’s Bazaar when Carmel Snow hired her because she was impressed with her style.  She became known for her “Why don’t you…” columns and even hired Ali MacGraw.  After she was fired, she was went on […]


10 . 07 . 10

I own a lot of vintage books but one I don’t have in my collection is Allure by Diana Vreeland.  I was therefore very excited to see a reissued copy in the bookstore today.  Vreeland was a fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue before her appointment in 1972 as “Special Consultant” to The Costume Institute […]
