Paris in Pastel

08 . 29 . 10

If you don’t already have the July/August 2010 issue of Australian Vogue Living, run, don’t walk to the nearest newsstand!  This issue is one of their best and includes a fun story about eating in Brooklyn and a feature on the Montauk home of Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams which you […]

Le Petit Trianon

07 . 15 . 10

After visiting Le Petit Trianon on the grounds of Versailles, it’s easy to see why Marie Antoinette would have wanted to escape the formality of court life at this small chateau. While the interiors are as gorgeous as you would expect, it’s the surrounding park and gardens that really steal the show. Enjoy! Photos by […]

Joyeux Bastille Day!

07 . 14 . 10

One of the main reasons that Stefan and I visited Paris last year was to make a pilgrimage to Versailles. It is one of the most gorgeous places on earth and definitely worth the trip. Although I posted many photos of Paris, I never actually posted any of my photos from Versailles. It was so […]

There is nothing I love more than wandering around a book store searching for a story that is as compelling as its cover and Parisians: An Adventure History of Paris is one of my new favorite finds. Some of the Parisians are famous such as Marie Antoinette and Charles de Gaulle while others could be […]

Hot Town

06 . 24 . 10

We dream all winter for summer weather to arrive and then we complain about it when it does. But in our defense, it really has been hot and steamy in New York this week. I don’t want to wish summer away but really I am looking forward to fall when I can wear chic outfits […]

Love, Chloé

06 . 18 . 10

My friend Jessica and I are excited that fashion is moving away from the awful eighties and back to the seductive seventies and Chloé is doing it better than anyone! They just launched their new fragrance Love, Chloé in Paris at the chic restaurant Apicius which they even redecorated with seventies furniture. The pièce de […]

Linda Fargo is the Senior Vice President, Women’s Fashion Director and Store Presentation for Bergdorf Goodman and is one of the chicest women in New York! Since the women in my family went white haired very early, I always joke that if I go white someday then I want to look like Linda! I should […]

Ooh La Lanvin!

03 . 07 . 10

Francophiles and fashionistas rejoice! Lanvin is opening its first boutique in New York on Madison Avenue between 68th and 69th Streets in mid June! Visiting Lanvin was one of the highlights of my trip to Paris and I am very excited to be able to make a weekly pilgrimage to this chic shop! I will […]

Parisian Perfection

01 . 12 . 10

I’m being a busy little bee working on my client projects getting quotes so I hope you’ll forgive me for a short post. After seeing the photo of me in Paris yesterday, I thought it might be fitting to post an apartment in Paris. Hamish Bowles is an Englishman living in New York working for […]

The Louvre

11 . 22 . 09

I just attended an event for the Young Patrons group of the American Friends of the Louvre and thought this would make a good time to post some of photos of this amazing museum! Since our hotel was just across the Seine from the Louvre, we often walked past it and even through it as […]

Cordelia Times Deux

11 . 02 . 09

When I first saw Cordelia de Castellane in her Paris apartment in the April 2009 issue of Elle Decor, I thought she looked familiar. She was featured in her old apartment in the March 2007 issue of House & Garden magazine. I remembered her because I posted some of the photos from that feature shortly […]

Jardin du Luxembourg

10 . 28 . 09

The weather in New York today was rainy and left everyone in a funk so I thought it the perfect time to revisit summer and Paris! On the last day of our trip, Stefan left early so I was on my own until I had to head to the airport. After I saw the queue […]

When I returned from Paris, I ran into Pierre Frey (the grandson of THE Pierre Frey) at a party and told him that I can’t believe he chooses to live in New York when he could be living in the most gorgeous city in the world! He actually only lives here half the year but […]

Pierre Frey in Paris

10 . 12 . 09

While in Paris last month, Stefan and I had a rare treat. After stopping by the Pierre Frey showroom on the rue du Mail, we walked over to the headquarters to see their archives. What we were surprised to learn is that Pierre Frey archive doesn’t just contain Pierre Frey fabrics but fabrics that they […]

Chic Cyclists

10 . 11 . 09

I tired to take photos of all the cyclists I saw while in Paris but most of them came out a little blurry since they were moving! Luckily, I managed to catch these two chic cyclists as they chatted near the rue Royale. Make sure you notice her kitten heels. Tres chic!

Did you know there is a David Hicks France gallery in Paris? Neither did I. Lucky for me, I happened to walk by it on my way to the Jardin du Luxembourg on the last day of my trip. David Hicks designs have been emulated and expanded on by many designers over the years but […]

La Maison d’Hermes

10 . 04 . 09

Hermes is synonymous with Paris and the shops are always packed with tourists looking to buy a bit of French-ness to bring back from their trip. I was surprised that the saddles cost less than the Birkins but I guess that is due to the simple economic principle of supply and demand. I don’t think […]
