I reposted this cover from the September 2023 issue of Harper’s Bazaar France in my Instagram Stories Wednesday night and was disappointed that some followers couldn’t identify the signature blonde hair of one of France’s most famous actresses. They must not have been paying attention since I have posted her many times including just recently […]

The French brand Sézane just launched a fabulous new collection of bags and shoes that make me very excited to see their full autumn collection when it’s available. Until then, here’s a few of my favorites. Nothing says fall like a burnt orange sweater. These two tone loafers would be great with white jeans or […]

One of the more special things I did in Paris in April was stay at Le Grand Contrôle Airelles Château de Versailles hotel which included private after hour tours of Versailles. 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 […]

If you search for Cravan bar in Paris, the first one that will probably come up is the original location in the 16th arrondissement. 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 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 […]

Nondescript hotel decor that doesn’t reflect the city in which you are staying is anathema to me. Luckily, that definitely does not describe the J.K. Hotel Paris. I’ve been aware of the hotel since before it opened but I’m so glad I stopped by to see my friend Callie Stanton who was staying at the […]

Interviewing Myself

06 . 07 . 23

I love the magazine How to Spend It, although, they just had an unfortunate rebrand to just HTSI. I’m sure this acronym means nothing people who are not familiar with the magazine included in the weekend edition of the Financial Times. They have a regular interview feature that was also called How to Spend It […]

While I was in Paris in April, my friend Andrew and I were invited by Ralph Lauren Home to dine at Ralph’s at the Ralph Lauren store in Saint Germain. We were lucky to enjoy lunch at the restaurant before they closed for a month for refreshing. They have just reopened and enjoying a meal […]

I bought quite a few things for my April trip to Paris when the forecast was showing warmer weather but I ended up not packing any of them when it became clear that it would be rather chilly. I had the cool grey weather this year that I was expecting last year but it was […]

Hotel Delano Paris

I’m headed to Paris tonight (I’ll already have arrived by the time those of you with the email subscription read this post) and I can’t wait to get back to my favorite city. I spent a month there last spring to celebrate my birthday but this trip will only be two weeks. I’m extra excited […]

I’ve been trying not too buy too much for spring or because I really don’t need many pieces. But I am headed to Palm Beach soon and picked up a few things that work for both so I thought I would share them. In case you haven’t taken a look lately, Banana Republic is looking […]

Last week, many of my followers on Instagram were lamenting that a lot hotels in Paris are already booked up for this year. Lucky for all of you, I can announce that the new Château des Fleurs five-star hotel will be opening on 14 April 2023. I don’t think anyone else knows about yet so […]

I’ve sent out almost 450 Paris Guide orders just since the beginning of the year which is no surprise since Paris continues to be the number one travel destination in the world. The number one question I’m always asked is what to wear in Paris during specific months of the year. It’s definitely harder to […]

Back by popular demand is my annual post of what I’ve bought myself for Christmas with a bonus of what I bought myself in Paris. With a few other purchases thrown in for good measure. I had originally intended to buy a Max Mara Icon Coat in Paris because all Max Mara coats in Europe […]

Too Ghōud to be True

12 . 13 . 22

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I was recently in Paris for two weeks. My favorite thing to do is photograph what the Parisians are wearing. It was even more interesting this trip since the first week looked and felt like autumn and the second week looked and felt like winter. I would […]

I’ve had a lot of questions about what I plan to pack for my Thanksgiving trip to Paris. Even though I don’t leave for five weeks, I’ve been trying to get my wardrobe in order so I’m not racing around at the last minute. I’m very glad I started early too because the tailor I […]

I took all the photos above when I was in Paris for a month this spring. Residents and tourists of all ages wear sneakers for traversing the cobblestones and running around the city. By popular demand, I’ve put together 24 pairs of sneakers and have tried to choose options in many different price points so […]
