Yellow & White Delight

06 . 13 . 15

I feel like yellow and white stripes are the new blue and white stripes.  We saw them earlier this week on the awning of the Grand Banks and all over Instagram for the Hotel Il Pellicano 50th anniversary party weekend. That’s Bianca Brandolini and Eugenia Niarchos looking chic on the iconic towels in matching retro inspired […]

I was away last summer so I missed the opening of Grand Banks, an award-winning oyster bar on a historic wooden boat on a pier along the Hudson River. It’s been described as the Hamptons in the city and that’s what it looks to me too. The “menu features sustainably produced oysters, ingredient driven seasonal plates, and nautically […]

The blue and white striped space that Miles Redd designed for Housing Works Design on a Dime makes me want to book a trip to Capri asap. It reminds me of the things I love about the JK Place Hotel. Since I can’t book a trip right now, maybe I’ll make due with a fern […]

It is finally warm and feels like spring in New York.  Woo hoo!  More importantly, that means it’s time for some spring shopping!  And to get you started, my friend Heidi Wynne is giving HC readers 10% off purchases until April 29, 2015 with the code CHIC10. I’m headed on a trip at the end […]

Bonjour J.Crew

03 . 09 . 15

The new J.Crew store in Paris conveniently opened the day after we arrived so we popped over to Le Marais to check it out. It’s women’s only but it’s full of fun displays and special edition Saint Jacques striped shirts only available at this store. We saw the cute food trucks outside but they were […]

A New Chance

06 . 08 . 14

The Chance Co. summer preview was the morning of my flight to Paris so I couldn’t attend.  It looks great in the photos they send so I’m sure it was even better in person.  Founder Julia Leach was inspired this season by the beauty of Sweden and has added a little pattern to her repertoire […]

I had never visited Amagansett before, except driving through it, so I was excited to explore this cute little town on my recent trip out East.  I was especially excited to visit TIINA, the store owned by former model and stylist Tiina Laakkonen. Tiina hails from Finland as do many of the home wares that […]

Blue Monday

06 . 04 . 13

I had an amazing time in Paris but it was much too short so I am already planning another trip this fall. I can’t wait to spend more time exploring new parts of my favorite city.  The highlight of this trip was finding the twice a year brocante around the rue de Bretagna in the […]

Even though I woke up to snow flurries this morning, I know spring can’t be too far behind.  To get in the mood, I suggest buying stripes.  Lucky for you, Chance has just launched its first ever sale this week.  You can save 40% on everything until Sunday, February 24th including their signature shirts and even the […]

Stripe it Rich

02 . 05 . 13

Now that the Fall 2013 shows are almost upon us, I wonder what will prevail as a predominant theme.  For Spring 2013, it was lots of black and white and stripes.  I actually started a black and white stripes folder of images but never used them. It the perfect jumping off point for this post […]

Savoring Summer

08 . 31 . 12

Labor Day weekend in America is the unofficially end of summer.  Where did the time go?!  But just because it’s almost fall doesn’t mean you have to put away your stripes.  Saint James has just debuted a new eight piece capsule collection at Barneys that are perfect for what the French call  la rentrée.  It […]

More Chic Stripes

06 . 30 . 11

As much as I love them, I don’t think I have the patience, energy or budget to have stripes painted in my new apartment.  But I was thinking that maybe I could handle them in the bathroom.  Black and white seems to be a popular choice as seen by Stephen Shubel, above who used them […]

Chic Striped Studio

06 . 29 . 11

I’ve received so many lovely comments and emails about my upcoming move but one reader from Amsterdam took things a bit further.  She emailed me photos to prove that you can live chicly in a studio.  Marijke Beumer is an interior designer in The Netherlands and lives in a beautiful studio that she decorated herself. […]

Stripe it Rich

Needless to say, these nautically inspired Pretty Ballerina flats are calling my name.  I think stripes might be my newest addiction.  Ahoy Matey!
