I posted this image of Adele from the new issue of Vogue in my Instagram Stories last week. I joked that I had the hair and now all I needed was the blazer and shirt. A lot of my followers asked me to let them know when I found them and/or accessible versions. Well, ask […]

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week. Things are incredibly busy in the city again. I’ve been attending films at the New York Film Festival and seeing friends. I’ve also been doing the Prolon fast mimicking diet this week which has made me a little tired. I have one more film tomorrow and […]

The temperature dropped today and really feels like fall now. That means it’s finally sweater weather. I was actually putting this sweater post together since Heidi Wynne launched her fair isle sweaters when they were featured on the cover of the menswear issue of How To Spend It. Fair Isle sweaters and their Icelandic counterparts […]

We’ve had a beautiful September so far and I’ve been wearing dresses and sandals in the warm weather. But it’s going to cool down this week which means a switch to jeans. Since it will still be sunny, white jeans are the perfect transitional piece and can be worn after Labor Day. Just see how […]

Welcome to the first day of Fall! Spring may last longer in New York but autumn is the city’s best season. Of course, it stays warm through October and we don’t see peak foliage until late October but that doesn’t mean it’s still not exciting. Here are some fall inspired images and fashions to get […]

My friend Heidi Wynne is probably known mostly to you for her cozy cashmere wraps and classic fisherman knit sweaters. She has been wanting to introduce fair isle sweaters for some time but waited until she could partner with the perfect sweater mill to bring her concepts to fruition. This led her to the oldest […]

I’ve posted about the fashion brand Another Tomorrow a few times but had yet to see it in person until yesterday. I had the pleasure of attending their Fall 2020 press preview and had a personal walk-through of the collection by founder Vanessa Barboni Hallik at their new store at 384 Bleecker Street. She founded […]

Fall is the best fashion season and I’m excited by all the new collections including the one that just launched from Sèzane today. It’s filled with great colors and styles to be paired with suede boots and bags among other pieces. Scott Trench comes in khaki, camel, and navy Jacob Jumper is available in camel, […]

I started working on this post on Thursday and kept getting sidetracked. But I wanted to finally get it up today so you can know about all the exciting time sensitive things happening online and in the real world. There are some great exhibitions on view now and coming up, as well as, new books […]

I’ve always loved the French phrase la rentrée which means the reentry. It encompasses back to school and back to work as everyone returns from their August holidays and tries to get back on track. They’ve already come back but as Americans go back to school and work after this long Labor Day weekend, it’s a time […]

Sorry for the radio silence this week. I’ve been on vacation in the Hamptons enjoying some fun in the sun and great shopping. Speaking of shopping, there are a lot of great deals to be had on full price and sale merchandise during the Labor Day Weekend sales happening now. 24S – Up to 70% off […]

“September is the January of fashion” pronounced fashion editor Candy Pratts Price in the 2009 fashion documentary, The September Issue, and I have to agree. There is something about autumn that will always remind me of back to school shopping except now with much chicer styles. I always start my shopping early because that’s when there are the most options available. Before […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
