The new summer 2021 collection from Sézane just launched today and I could easily see them in an Eric Rohmer film. The timeless French girl look always works for summer and I’ve already placed my order. The best part is that shipping is free over $200 and there are free returns if something doesn’t work. […]

Tulip season is over in New York and the city is now lush and green. Traffic is back too which is a sure sign the city is back to normal. It’s going to be a bit chilly and rainy here this weekend which makes it perfect for watching a new show or movie if you’re […]

Everyone who saw the renovated 19th-century farmhouse of Luis Laplace and his partner Christophe Comoy on the island of Menorca in the WSJ. Magazine this weekend immediately fell in love.

I loved seeing Suzanne Rheinstein‘s Montecito house in Architectural Digest but I didn’t realize what a major renovation she undertook until I saw the old real estate listing photos and before photos. The architecture firm, Bories and Shearron, who worked on the house with Suzanne posted some of the before photos of the house built […]

The temperature in New York has been vacillating wildly lately but at least it looks like it will be beautiful on Saturday. I’m going to try to take another walk on Park Avenue to enjoy the tulips and cherry trees at their peak before rain arrives on Sunday. That actually works out perfectly so I […]

You probably couldn’t get together for last Mother’s Day but that might not be the case this year thanks to the vaccines. That means you’ll be able to give your mom or mother figure a gift in person this year on May 9th. Many mothers have been isolated at home while others have been juggling […]
