Thank you for all the great feedback on my first two holiday gift guides. I’m sorry some things have already sold out but we’ve put together more than 40 new gift suggestions that are currently in stock that I think your friends and family will love. I love to start each of my gift guides […]

Central Park is finally at peak leaf peeping season and could not look more beautiful, as you can see from my photo above, and events are back in full swing. Here’s what’s new and noteworthy in the city and beyond. Salon Art + Design which features over 50 of the world’s most influential galleries in art, architecture, and design […]

I found so many great gift options I couldn’t fit them all in my first gift guide so I decided to post my second gift guide this week too. As we know, there could be shipping delays and supply chain issues, it’s best to shop early for everyone on your list. Do you have a […]

I know some people will think this holiday gift guide is too early and others will be excited because they can start shopping now. I’m posting earlier than usual because retailers are worried about shipping delays and since most people shop online each year. I like to mix up my gift guides for items for […]

When I first started looking at photos of Gwyneth Paltrow in A Perfect Murder, I decided to order a few vintage Hermès silk scarves. I have only been able to wear one once because it’s been so warm in New York but it added a pop of color to my outfit. Last week, one of […]

My Recent Etsy Finds

07 . 06 . 21

In the past year, I’ve found myself buying much more from Etsy. There are so many lovely and creative people running their entire companies on the platform and offering great prices. I’ve put together some of the things I’ve recently purchased and some things that have caught my eye. I’m not usually one for dupes […]

The temperature in New York has been vacillating wildly lately but at least it looks like it will be beautiful on Saturday. I’m going to try to take another walk on Park Avenue to enjoy the tulips and cherry trees at their peak before rain arrives on Sunday. That actually works out perfectly so I […]

I’ve had so many requests to post more flat lay outfits so I’m going to try to comply. One of the issues I run into is that things I buy often sell out so if that’s the case, I’ll try to make similar suggestions. It’s a beautiful crisp fall day in New York and this […]

On Thursday morning, I headed downtown to preview the new Hermès store in the Meatpacking District. The area used to actually be where they packed meat in New York. You would almost break an ankle on the cobblestones when you went to Pastis or Florent. Now those iconic places are gone and the cobblestones have […]

I’ve had a few readers ask me how to style white jeans for autumn so I thought a blog post was warranted. I’m also over the heat and all my summer clothes so all I can think about are fall fashions. Since it stays warm through October, you can definitely still wear white jeans as […]

Hotel Lutetia in Paris

08 . 20 . 18

When I lived in Paris, I lived on rue Babylone on the top floor of a beautiful old building overlooking a park. When I looked out my window to the right, I could practically reach out and touch Le Bon Marché department store. At the end of the park on the left was the old […]

Everything But the House is known for their amazing auctions of furniture, art, and objects but they also offer a wide range of amazing fashions and accessories. Just launched today is the Marilyn Lewis Designer Fashion Collection full of vintage treasures. Marilyn Lewis is described as “a woman ahead of her time” who co-founded Hamburger […]

I met my friend David Lawrence after posting a house he designed in the Hamptons on the blog in 2008. The blue and white home was featured on the cover and inside House Beautiful. We worked for the same designer but not at the same time and shared a love of beautiful things so of […]

According to Bourne Creative, green is… “the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment. Green is also traditionally associated with money, finances, banking, ambition, greed, jealousy, and wall street. The color green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful […]

Kelly Club

09 . 12 . 16

The Hermès sac à dépêches which was based on older bags designed to hold saddles was introduced in the 1930’s but it wasn’t until 1956 when Grace Kelly used the bag to shield her pregnancy from the paparazzi that it became forever known as the Kelly Bag. I have a vintage oxblood Kelly Bag that […]

Saut Hermès 2016

03 . 18 . 16

Although I was in Paris for almost two weeks, I’m regretting that I didn’t stay another week so I could experience the Saut Hermès 2016 in person. The 5-star show jumping competition takes places this weekend in the Grand Palais. This ridiculously chic sporting event also includes a saddlery workshop, shopping, and special shows. While I can’t […]

I wasn’t that impressed with the Apple Watch until I saw the new Hermés Apple Watch collaboration that was announced today. This is chic technology I can get behind. The new collection of Apple Watches in stainless steel will include “finely crafted leather bands in distinctive styles from Hermès, including the Single Tour, Double Tour and […]
