This post was supposed to go up yesterday but my internet had other ideas. Strangely enough, a technician from Spectrum was here on Wednesday and ran a new cable from the roof to my apartment to help my spotty wifi connection. On Thursday, my wifi and television went out completely and when another technician came […]

My friend Stacey used to work in finance in New York but moved to San Francisco a few years ago to work in the tech world. Her last two jobs were in very casual offices but she just started a job at a new startup with “a kickass female CEO who would never be caught […]

I love my apartment and all my antiques and paintings but sometimes I dream about painting everything white and parring things down. The perfect example of this chic minimal look is the Connecticut home of Michael DePerno and Andrew Fry who are owners of the store Plain Goods in New Preston, Connecticut. I posted their home last […]

It’s been cool enough in New York that I’ve started wearing flats and I’ve seen many editors already wearing boots during fashion week. That might be jumping the gun a little but it is a good time to think about your fall footwear. We all know that that by the time you really need a […]

I’ll admit that it felt like this summer flew by but I’m still very ready for la rentrée, which is what the French call the reentry after their August holidays. I can’t wait for sweater weather, leaf peeping, and fall events like the Lee Radziwill auction at Christie’s in October. If you’re not excited for […]

The September magazines always feature beautiful fashions but there is nothing I love more when they include gorgeous interiors. Such is the case with C’est Chic from British Vogue where model Rebecca Leigh Longendyke was styled by Jane How and photographed by Zoe Ghertner at Château de Champlâtreux about an hour north of Paris.

Every year, I eagerly await the first pre-fall collection from Sézane and it’s finally launched today. I don’t think the styling and photos are as beautiful or inspiring as they were last year but the collection is still filled with wonderful pieces to add to your autumn wardrobe. Happy September! XOXO, HC Johnson Coat and […]

I hope everyone is ready for the long holiday weekend. Make sure you give yourself some time to shop because there are some amazing Labor Day weekend sales* happening now. While some of it is summer merchandise, there is a lot of fall fashions and home decor to be found on sale too. Ann Taylor – […]

Much of what I post on Habitually Chic can be described as “aspirational” design. I know this doesn’t always translate to real life which can be frustrating to those without unlimited budgets. When my very sweet public relations friend Current D’Ignazio asked me to help her pull together her first grown up apartment in New […]
