Au Revoir Paris

08 . 19 . 14

Today is the day I say au revoir to Paris.  Or maybe I should say à bientôt since I will definitely be back again soon. Time really does fly when you’re having fun.  I am sad to be living the City of Light but I am also excited to get back to New York.  I can’t […]

I am going to miss so many things about Paris but working on a laptop is not one of them.  It feels like it’s time to get back to being productive on a real computer at a real desk. Of course, if I had a real office like Jenna Lyons, I might be even more […]

I stopped by my friend Eleanor’s today to leave a few things and say goodbye.  (That’s her above) I can’t believe it was exactly three months ago that I landed on her doorstep.  Without her generosity, guidance, hospitality, and occasional shoulder to cry on, this trip would not have been possible.  What’s even more amazing […]

“Find me a man who’s interesting enough to have dinner with and I’ll be happy.” – Lauren Bacall (1924-2014) 

The Aurelie Bidermann boutique on rue des Saint-Pères is currently closed for vacances along with the rest of Paris. Luckily, I will be able to shop her just opened Soho store once I get back to New York. It will be filled with her signature costume bijoux, as well as her new high jewelry collection.  I didn’t […]

“…you must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all. Thoreau said, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Don’t be resigned to that. Break out!” – John Keating played by Robin Williams (1951-2014) in Dead Poets Society

I can’t believe I have just one more week left in Paris. There is so much I will miss and so much I didn’t get to check off my list this summer.  I’m actually glad I didn’t see it all though because it will give me even more incentive to return again soon.  One of […]

As you know from reading the blog, I’m a huge fan of Danish fashion designer Malene Birger and her book Life and Work: Malene Birger’s Life in Pictures.  Needless to say, I was thrilled to learn that she’s not only releasing a new book, Move and Work, but debuting her new endeavor Birger1962 this fall.  […]

Calder and Coppola

08 . 06 . 14

Creativity seems to run through all branches of the Coppola family.  They collaborate on projects at various times as well. According to a tidbit ion the T magazine blog, Sofia Coppola recently photographed the look book for her cousin-in-law, Amanda Blake’s new line of clothing, Calder, in her own New York apartment. Blake studied at Parsons […]

Remember my Paris apartment that I posted a few weeks ago here?  Well, it could be yours from August 15-30.  Due to a small Visa issue (with France not the credit card) I can only stay in Paris for 90 days.  I am returning to New York on August 15th but have already paid for […]
