Habitually Chic®'s Logo  

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think the mark of a great designer is someone who can make me like a design style that is not my personal favorite. Interior designer Martin Brûlé has created the chicest Art Deco abode in a building that did not have many redeeming interior architectural […]

I can’t believe we are nearing the year mark of the start of this pandemic. As we are still spending time at home, I’ve been trying to refresh my apartment with a few new things for spring. I just ordered a new robe and towels and if you need anything, I highly recommend the H&M […]

Deeda Blair: Part Deux

I had a great response to my first Deeda Blair post about her elegance and New York apartment and I’m following it up with a look at her Georgetown home. She and her late husband William Blair purchased the 1930s red brick Georgian home in the late 1960s when Mr. Blair “was named the first […]

Are you sick of snow yet? I know I am. I don’t remember the last time it snowed so much in New York. I guess it is one good way of getting most people to stay home in a global pandemic though. One thing that’s helping me get through are flowering branches. Those are quince […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about elegance lately. Propriety is another thing that’s been on my mind due to thirst trap photos and Generation Z telling us where we can part our hair. As Justin Sylvester said today, “Why should we take advice from kids who are still on their parent’s family plan?” Why are […]

Because my hair is honey caramel colored, I’ve had a very hard time finding a camel coat that doesn’t make me look like the same color from head to toe. I finally found one that is the perfect shade of camel and the only thing getting me through winter and the pandemic now is planning […]

For Sale: Denbigh Farm

It’s always interesting when a real estate listing doesn’t include any interior photos. It usually means that they are in very bad shape or that the owner wants them to remain private. I suspect it’s the latter in case of Denbigh Farm in Greenwich, Connecticut which is currently for sale by Susie Hilfiger for $40 […]

If I have one piece of advice for you this year, it’s that you better do something for Valentine’s Day. It’s been a hard year for everyone and we could all use a pick me up this month. Obviously those of you with significant others should do something for each other but don’t forget about […]

If you’re in the market for a Gilded age mansion, one of the last remaining ones on Fifth Avenue is now for sale. The American Irish Historical Society just just listed their landmarked 15,000 square-foot headquarters at 991 Fifth Avenue. The price tag of $52 Million townhouse that sits directly across from the south wing […]

It’s turned much colder this week so I thought it was time for a winter skincare post. The low temperatures, harsh winds, lack of humidity, hot interiors, and exercising outside all wreak havoc on the skin in the winter. I’m touching on my favorite procedures and products, many of which could be used by men […]

Snow in England

Just in case you don’t follow anyone in England on Instagram, they received a beautiful snowfall on Sunday and more on Monday. Some said it hasn’t snowed in their area in over two years. It looked very idyllic and I couldn’t resist posting some of my favorite images. We’re supposed to receive snow in New […]
