‘Tis Near Halloween

10 . 21 . 17

When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween. – Author unknown

I hadn’t intended to write about Victoria Beckham again this week but when I was scrolling through my Outfit Inspiration board on Pinterest, I realized that I just bought all the components for this outfit. It’s the perfect ensemble for transitioning from day to after work events. This plumy burgundy colored Tara Jarmon coat just arrived […]

I’m really trying not to buy too many new books because my shelves are at maximum capacity but I might have to make an exception for Vogue Living: Country, City, Coast. Hamish Bowles and Chloe Malle have carefully curated 36 homes and gardens that have been featured in Vogue over the years with many images […]

Grey Day

10 . 16 . 17

It’s a grey and chilly day in New York that is reminding me Paris. It’s also time to finally pull out my grey sweaters and coats, my fall and winter uniform. I’m nothing if not consistent. Gucci Bamboo mini two-tone leather tote Oversized ribbed wool turtleneck sweater Small leather shoulder bag Belted Cashmere Coat Grey Suede […]

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

I’ve been wanting to try Victoria Beckham Beauty since it debuted because I thought it looked very chic and intriguing. I finally got my hands on some products this week and while I knew I would like them, I wasn’t expecting to love them. It’s easy to write off celebrity beauty lines but what I […]

I consider La Réserve to be one of the most beautiful boutique hotels in Paris. I knew it was part of a group of La Réserve Hotels but I didn’t know there was one owner and that his home is also available for rent. La Chartreuse is the private residence of Michel Reybier and his family that is […]

The Fold London

10 . 10 . 17

I’m not sure what I bought that put me on the mailing list for The Fold but I’m very happy I received their autumn catalog. I find it extremely difficult sometimes to find well made clothes that are appropriate for work meetings and evening events. Trying to find a dress with sleeves to wear in […]

Cadland House

10 . 09 . 17

The thing I love the most about English decorating is the use of color. The colors are especially beautiful in Cadland House featured in House & Garden UK. They look like the perfect antidote to the often wet and grey British weather. The house located on the Isle of Wright off the beach has gardens […]

Jayson Home, the beloved Chicago store, has just opened in downtown New York. It is so exciting to have their mix of new and vintage finds in the City that Never Sleeps. You can now find anything you need for your own apartment, a client project, or the perfect gift at their new location. You […]

It’s still hot in New York so it’s not coat weather yet. But I’m of the mindset that if you buy them, it will come. My coat closet is already packed but I can’t help buy at least one new coat each season and I can’t think of a better place to go for coats […]

I can’t believe that November magazines are already on newsstands. The latest issue of Architectural Digest features the West Village townhouse of actress Julianne Moore that’s surprisingly down to earth for a movie star. I appreciate that it looks like she decorated it herself and that is feels very personal. “I like things that have real […]

Every morning, I’m afraid to turn on the news or look at Twitter. I feel depressed and helpless and unsure of the world. I don’t know what to do except give you a place to escape if you feel the same. Besides the Autumn poets sing A few prosaic days A little this side of […]

As you might remember, I hosted a joint Habitually Chic 10 Year Anniversary and Williams-Sonoma Home new Chelsea store opening party last week. So many people came out that it made for a very fun evening. For the event, Williams-Sonoma Home asked me to choose my top 10 must have items in the store. They […]

Bermuda Bound

09 . 29 . 17

After a whirlwind week, I’m Bermuda bound this morning for a weekend of rest and relaxation at the Hamilton Princess Hotel and Beach Club. While many islands in the Caribbean are still recovering from recent hurricanes, Bermuda was left untouched due to its location which is just 655 miles off the coast of North Carolina. […]

All of my fashion friends are in Paris this week and before they left, I suggested they stop by the new Buly 1803 in the Marais. This new location not only carries their cult beauty products but also has a cafe, Grand Café Tortoni. One of my friends who visited said she preferred the original […]

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry caused a stir in Toronto during his Invictus Games by breaking royal protocol and holding hands like any young couple. But it was Meghan’s down to earth outfit that also had people talking. She seems poised to become another fashion icon like the Duchess of Cambridge but because Meghan is […]

Southern Retreat

09 . 26 . 17

I have been following Marina Rust on Instagram for a while and was wondering what she was doing in Virginia. My question was answered in the August 2017 issue of Vogue. She and her family had bought a red brick Georgian farm house on a rolling hill where they spend as many weekends and holidays […]

It’s officially fall and although it’s still a bit warm here in New York, I know that means that cooler weather will come all at once and I want to be prepared. I’ve already picked up the Hatch Waffle Turtleneck that I can’t wait to wear with black leggings. Some of you only think of […]

If a Picasso painting is out of your price range, you might want to think about buying the artist’s last home in France. Mas de Notre Dame de Vie in Mougins where Pablo Picasso lived and worked from 1961 till his death in 1973 will be sold at auction on October 12, 2017 by Residence365.com. […]
