When I was in Miami for Art Basel in December 2014, my friend and I drove up to Bar Harbor. Along the way, we passed a huge construction site for the Surf Club. My friend who I was with actually remarked that he owned a book Surf Club about the old club by Assouline. Well, […]

Carte Blanche

03 . 19 . 17

Every designer’s dream project is one where the client gives them carte blanche. That’s probably easier to do when the space in question is a Parisian pied-a-terre and the designer is Joseph Dirand. Not only did he design the 6,500 square foot apartment on the Avenue Montaigne but also chose all the artwork. A lot […]

It’s snowing this morning in New York so I can’t think of a better time to revisit my recent trip to Los Cabos, Mexico with THIRDHOME. At the beginning of the trip,  I was looking at all the traditional Mexican architecture with warm colors and terra cotta roofs and wondered if anyone ever designed anything white and […]

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 […]

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

“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 […]
