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 […]

I’ve had a lot of requests for more flat lay outfit posts and I’m going to try to comply. Sometimes things I buy sell out quickly which makes it hard but luckily most of the latest things I’ve purchased are still available. I’m also trying to think about how to transition some pieces to fall. […]

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 […]

Le Bain

07 . 01 . 15

Paris is experiencing a heat wave this week and I hope some people planned ahead and went to the shore. I can’t think of anything that would look more chic on the beach than a bathing suit and towel from Hermès Le Bain 2015. Villa sold separately.

A sure sign that antiques and modern art can coexist is the dining room at the Sotheby’s Showhouse that was designed by Russell Piccione. A George II Side Table, Consoles, Chimeypiece, George III Chairs, and silver serving and display pieces, look perfectly at home with works by Chuck Close, Alex Katz, Andy Warhol, and James Rosenquist. […]

I know a lot of you love my outfit posts so I’m going to try to start posting more.  The only problem is that I subscribe to the “quality not quantity” rule of thumb when it comes to shopping for clothes for I end up wearing the same things a lot. My wardrobe is made […]

I only have a few more weeks left in Paris so I’m trying to pack it all in before I go. I still can’t believe I haven’t made it to all the museums yet.  I’m also headed to London on Saturday for five days to meet up with a friend who will then come back […]

I had the great pleasure of attending my first fashion show in Paris Saturday night and I couldn’t have started off with a better one than Hermès. If it hadn’t been raining, the Hermès homme été 2015 show would have taken place in the jardin of le Cloitre des Cordeliers and looked like the sketch above. […]

Anyone can sell items on ShopHers and they even offer a VIP experience where you can send your pieces to ShopHers […]

True Luxury

03 . 05 . 14

The word luxury is bandied about so much that it’s started to lose its meaning.  If there is one house that still typifies the word luxury, it’s Hermès.  It’s also synonymous with quality and craftsmanship.  While the Birkin bag may now be ubiquitous, the clothing will always hold down the fort on quiet yet interesting designs. Hermès unveiled […]
