Last March seems to drag on forever but his March flew by and I can’t believe it’s April. I’m not really complaining though since it’s my birthday month and Central Park is finally starting to bloom. I plan to add a little color to my wardrobe with my favorite spring shades of lilac and lavender. […]

“Whether you consider it a fresh start or a clean slate, there is nothing better than the beginning of January to plan out what you want to do in the coming year. I personally love a new blank calendar just brimming with possibilities. I like to plan out each month which helps me plan out […]

Long time readers know that grey is my go to color for fall and winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black does. It also pairs well with tan, brown, burgundy, navy, and black. November is also when I pay homage to my favorite shades of grey […]

La Rentrée or the reentry period after summer is my favorite time of year because it means that life begins again in earnest in New York. Usually, fashion week kicks off with big events and then the fashion shows start. In the following weeks, there are press previews, lunches, design events, cocktail parties, art exhibitions, […]

“April is the cruellest month, breedingLilacs out of the dead land, mixingMemory and desire, stirringDull roots with spring rain.” – T.S. Eliot I don’t think even T.S. Eliot could have predicted just how cruel April would be in 2020. April has always been my favorite month since it contains the day of my birth but […]

It turned arcticly cold this week in New York which means I’ve swathed from head to toe in grey cashmere and wool. Grey is always my go to color for winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black does. It also pairs well with tan, brown, burgundy, […]

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 […]

It’s a bank holiday weekend in the UK and it feels everyone else in Europe is en vacances until September begins. I’ve been traveling so much this summer that I’m happy to be at home getting ready for fall. But here’s one last look at summer for those of you who aren’t ready for it […]

Summertime Blues 2019

I posted a Summertimes Blues post last August and I liked it so much I decided to repost it again this year. I made a few tweaks so it’s not exactly the same. I hope you are enjoying your last weeks of summer before it’s back to school and reality time. Interior design by SJB Nine […]

Happy April 2019!

04 . 01 . 19

April is my favorite time of year since it is the month of my birth and the beginning of spring. The flowers and trees will burst into bloom this month and I can’t wait to take a daily walk in Central Park to see their progression. They are already seeing daffodils pop up across the […]

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m loving lavender right now. It feels like the breath of fresh air we need to start the month of March. I realized that the pinker shade is more lilac than lavender so I’ve put together some of my favorites in both shades. If none of these strike your […]

Each January has a date designated as Blue Monday. It signifies a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for presents are due. The weather in New York has a windchill below zero but it’s also a bank holiday so at least most people don’t have […]
