Another insanely chic auction coming up this fall is A Parisian pied-à-terre curated by Hubert de Givenchy at Christie’s in Paris on 14 September 2021. The “collection of a major international collector” is rumored to be from Philippe Venet, who died at the age of 91 earlier this year and was the longtime partner of […]

En Vacances 2020

08 . 17 . 21

I always find it amazing that the whole of Europe can be en vacances at the same exact time. I exaggerate of course, but only slightly. I haven’t done a color post in a while so this one is inspired by holidays spend on Greek isles and Italian beaches. @valerieleberichel @aerin Belted lace-trimmed cotton dress […]

I started to suspect that thick and chunky gold necklaces would be big soon after seeing them at the couture shows in Paris this past July. My suspicions were confirmed this week aftering seeing them on most of the attendees at Copenhagen Fashion Week. They’re an easy way to transition your outfits for the end […]

My favorite part of fall, besides the fashions, are all the auctions and art fairs. There are always some spectacular sales and this year is no exception. This September, Christie’s will offer Jasper Conran: The Collection Parts I and II which will be filled his country house collections including those from his majestic apartment in […]

Photographer Lachlan Bailey is a master of creating a mood and his photos of Margot Robbie in August 2021 British Vogue are no exception. They images taken at Flamingo Estate, the high in the hills of Los Angeles home of Richard Christiansen of Chandelier Creative, perfectly sum up the mood of August. They also make […]

In the wrong hands, some Paris apartments can become boring white boxes. In the chic hands of fashion designer Pierre Hardy, his husband Christopher Turnier, and their Italian interior designer Vincenzo De Cotiis, a 17th-century apartment in an hôtel particulier on Île Saint-Louis, became perfection personified. I’m so so in love everything about these interiors […]

I’ve started wearing a Revere Signet Ring and thought it might be nice to put together a post together on the history and etiquette of how to wear them. I took this photo of gold Byzantine signet rings from 900-1300 inscribed with Greek at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. According to The History Press, signet […]

One of my favorite projects last year was styling a dining table for the Sotheby’s Dining IN Online Sale. When they asked me to style a table for the Sotheby’s Dining IN New York Online Sale this year, I was more than happy to oblige. It’s a dream to be style a table with some […]

One of my favorite Instagram friends Kimmie Noel is one of the most creative people I know. Last year, she made the most charming Scrooge ornaments to commemorate 2020, a scrooge of a year. She made me one as a gift that has the same colors as the middle Scrooge above and when I posted […]

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has finally opened to everyone. Some things have sold out but there are still some lovely items left for fall. Remember, the items on sale are new for autumn and not left over on sale items from summer. I bought this Double Face Wool Coat in charcoal grey and this shitake […]

I started following designer Camilla Guinness on Instagram earlier this year and was thinking about putting a post together. Today, her villa in Tuscany was featured on House & Garden so it felt like the perfect time. She shares the house named Arniano that she decorated with her daughters Amber and Claudia. Amber lives in […]

Whether you’re traveling to the French Riviera or just want to look like you are, the new Goop July G. Label Core Collection has you covered. The photos of Gwyneth modeling along the Mediterranean are very glammed up but I still love last year’s Core G. Label Collection photographed by her husband during quarantine. The […]

There aren’t any interior photos in the Hola feature on Lauren Santo Domingo in Southampton but there are more pretty pics of the gardens by Miranda Brooks. Of course, all the fashions and tabletop can be found at Moda Operandi. Set-of-2 Personalized Isla Simpson For Moda Domus Dinner Plates, Set-of-2 Isla Simpson For Moda Domus […]

Summer is not my season so I’m been working on a lot of projects (the reason for the radio silence) and biding my time until fall. I do have to say that the city is looking lush and beautiful though. I love all the green and white plantings I saw on Fifth Avenue Friday. There […]

The Met Cloisters

07 . 20 . 21

After my field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum a few weeks ago, I stopped by The Met Cloisters. I love the quiet beauty of the cloister garden and I try to visit once or twice a year. “The Cloisters, a branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is America’s only museum dedicated exclusively […]

I enjoy following the Instagram account of Marna De la Orden who is the co-founder of Maria de la Orden which is a fashion and accessory line of “unique looks designed between Paris and Madrid in eco-friendly and original fabrics” with very reasonable prices. Her style is much more colorful than mine which I found […]

I love to watch tennis, especially Wimbledon. I love the history and the old school elegance of the All England Club. But I’m a terrible player so my friend Eleanor Banco Lasko, who is an amazing tennis player and competitor, has graciously helped me put this post together. We’ve been working on it since the […]

It feels like everyone is in Paris right now or just returned like my friend interior designer Andrew Brown. He and his partner Kip took a last minute trip to celebrate Andrew’s birthday. While they were in the City of Light, they took a day trip to Versailles where they quickly toured of the chateau […]

I’ve put together some of the things I’ve recently purchased and some things that have caught my eye. I’m not usually one for dupes […]
