Spring 2020 Sales

In quarantine it feels like there’s not much to do except eat and shop. I have yet to start my closet clean out and organizing projects but they might have to wait until I see what’s new on sale. If you need a little pick me up, perhaps some more pots and pans, or even […]

Dispatch from New York

Everyone keeps asking how we are in New York. We’re all just taking it one day at a time. Last week was the most stressful as we all waited for word that the city would receive a “shelter in place” order. I think many people think that means that we are not allowed outside. (If […]

Ornamental Minimalism

Interior designer and architect Joseph Dirand needed a larger apartment for his expanding family and the result is what he describes as “ornamental minimalism.” His style is clean and almost always uses a large amount of marble but always feels warm and inviting. That’s exactly how I felt when I stayed at the Four Seasons […]

Now that we’re officially sheltering in place in New York, my connection to the world exists mostly through Instagram. Therefore, I thought it would be a good time to visit some of my favorite accounts. Many of those whose photos I look forward to seeing live in England which includes Lesley Cooke who is holed […]

Another Tomorrow

If you follow me on Instagram and watch my Stories, you’ll know that yesterday was a rough day. But I had a good cry and now I’m feeling better and ready to try to get back on track. I will definitely be addressing things to do while we’re all home and other Coronavirus topics in […]

My Instagram friend Remy Renzullo is definitely an old soul with a fun personality. Anyone who hasn’t met him might think he was a middle aged decorator instead of twenty-something interior designer. I think that’s what makes him so special. He’s extremely knowledgeable about historic design and antiques but doesn’t take it all so seriously. […]

Instead of fleeing New York due to the Coronavirus, I decided to stay. I love my apartment and I thought this extended time at home would give me the opportunity to clean out every closet, cabinet, and drawer, as well as read the stack of books by my bed. I also plan to finally edit […]

In honor of spring, my lovely friend Heidi Wynne is offering Habitually Chic customers 25% off site wide which includes her luxurious cashmere and straw bags. I like to carry a cashmere scarf year round, but especially during spring and summer. They comes in handy when the weather is changeable, restaurants have the air conditioning […]

We are close to being locked down in New York right now. Most museums are closed as well as all Broadway shows. It’s a very uncertain and slightly scary time in the city. I keep thinking about all that I’ve been through since moving here in August 2001 which includes 9/11, the blackout, the 2008 […]

It was 70 degrees in New York on Monday which makes me glad I’ve already been buying dresses for spring and summer. I just know it’s going to be consistently warm very soon after a record warm winter. I’ve put together 20 dresses that are perfect for everyday, events, Easter, and more. I also tried […]

I wish movie studios would release all new films on demand as well as in theaters now so people have the option of staying home. I ventured downtown last weekend to see The Burnt Orange Heresy but after I saw a girl put lip gloss on her finger and they apply it to her lips […]

There’s nothing more anxiety producing than wondering if you’re going to catch the Coronavirus or whether your city might be the next to be locked down. In the meantime, everyone seems to be going about their business as usual with more hand washing. I’m vacillating between calm and panic so I’m shopping to make myself […]
