Black and White

08 . 25 . 16

There comes a point every August when I want to burn all my summer clothes and that time is now. I’m tired of color too and have started wearing mostly black and white as I start to transition my closet for September. If you are feeling the same, here’s a little inspiration to get you […]

As you know, Sag Harbor is my favorite place in the Hamptons. When I’m in town, I love stopping by to say hello to Mona Nerenberg at her very chic store Bloom. While I was there in June, Mona let me  know that not only was the home she shares with her partner Lisa Bynon going to […]

Wonderful White Lace

06 . 30 . 16

I wear dresses all summer but after seeing The Duchess of Cambridge looking gorgeous at Royal Ascot in a beautiful white lace dress recently, I think I need to add one to my wardrobe. Usually everything she wears sells out immediately but since this one is a little more on the expensive side, so the exact dress […]

Time for White

03 . 31 . 16

The old rule of thumb is that you can’t wear white after Labor Day or before Easter. Obviously, people wear white all year round nowadays but sometimes it doesn’t work until spring and warmer weather arrives. Now that the temperature is headed into the 70’s, I feel like I can pull out a white blazer […]

Marvelous in Michigan

01 . 06 . 16

Usually this time of year is pretty quiet but it just got very exciting for my dear friend Michelle Adams. Her gorgeous home in Ann Arbor, Michigan is featured in the new February issue of House Beautiful. Many of us dream of getting out of the rat race in New York but Michelle actually made the […]

Gaia Repossi in Paris

10 . 21 . 15

It’s funny how white apartments might be boring elsewhere but always look chic in Paris. Such is the case of the apartment of jewelry designer Gaia Repossi. It helps that hers has high windows and beautiful wood floors that set a great backdrop for her furniture and art. It also looks like there is an interesting upstairs […]

The Absence of Color

08 . 16 . 15

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” ― Coco Chanel

White Hot Dress

08 . 15 . 15

I’m definitely ready for fall fashion but I did buy one last white summer dress. I wore it yesterday to The Cloisters and I hadn’t even made it into the entrance before a young man with a foreign accent told me he liked my flowy dress.  It looks like something you’d see a girl wearing in […]

Even though we’re supposed to be getting more snow tomorrow in New York, I’m still planning my wardrobe for Spring. I have to make sure I’m covered for upcoming events like Easter, my birthday, and a few trips.  While you may think that Burberry London only make trench coats, they also offer beautiful dresses and separates […]

White Out

01 . 06 . 15

It just started snowing in New York. I don’t mind since I’m leaving for the Caribbean tomorrow.  I also feel like the snow will be a lovely cleanse for the new year. I want everything to be white and clean just like a blanket of now.  According to Sensational Color, the color white aids mental […]

Chic on the Street

09 . 08 . 14

As everyone knows, some of the best looks each fashion week aren’t on the runways.  The street style looks are also looking much better this season.  Maybe it’s because it’s been so hot.  I think the weather has also been the reason we’re seeing so much white after Labor Day too. Gotta get it in […]

Fashion Week Flash

09 . 05 . 14

It’s only Day 2 of New York Fashion Week but we’ve already seen a lot of great looks.  It’s so hot and steamy in the city right now that I wish I could wear most of them right now.  A white dress should be at the top of your shopping list for Spring 2015 but […]

Fashion Week Kickoff

09 . 04 . 14

New York Fashion Week kicked off last night with a fete at Gracie Mansion and I noticed a theme among a few of the designers.  Jenna Lyons of J.Crew, Ralph Lauren, and Carolina Herrera all wore grey and white.  A great way to transition your white pieces for after Labor Day. I’ll be attending all […]

White Hot

08 . 21 . 14

  I think we all agree that the rule “no white after Labor Day” is a bit antiquated.  That being said, I would put away anything that looks really light and summery.  I will keep out my favorite white jeans and pair them with a grey blazer or a black silk blouse instead of something […]

My Paris Apartment

07 . 21 . 14

Someone just emailed me asking if I had any secrets for finding a rental apartment in Paris.  The ones they saw were either not very chic or terribly expensive.  This was the case for me as well so I consider myself very lucky to have found a great place through people I know here. A […]

A Little Design

04 . 12 . 14

Just a reminder that the design issue of T magazine will be in The New York Times newspaper this Sunday. The design included runs the gamut from colorful in Tangiers to minimalist in Paris.  I loved hearing French architect Joseph Dirand describe the thought process behind the design of his new Paris flat in the […]

Now that I have the dates of my summer sojourn to Paris planned, I’m already thinking about what I am going to pack. I will be away for four months and will have to be prepared for a temperature fluctuation from around 50 degrees to possibly 80 degrees or more, especially as I travel to […]
