One of the places I always stop in Sag Harbor is Bloom. Except for the one time I went out with a guy I was dating who rushed me through shopping and I missed saying hello to owner Mona Nerenberg. She was so disappointed that I vowed it would never happened again. The first time […]

I love the John Derian stores on East 2nd Street but they are a destination and not a place I walk by regularly. That’s why I am so excited about his new store that just opened at 18 Christopher Street in the West Village which is one of my regular haunts. The front of the […]

I know many of you will be visiting New York this holiday season so I wanted to share a few great pop up shops and one permanent store open now. When you run out of time for online shopping, you still have a lot of wonderful options in the city. It was a fun treat […]

If you follow me on Instagram, then you will have seen these photos already but I wanted to make sure I share Roman and Williams GUILD NY with everyone. GUILD NY is the new lifestyle space by Roman and Williams at 53 Howard Street that includes a flower shop, restaurant, and mercantile space that all meld […]

My friend Alice first introduced me to The White Company years ago but for some reason I never visited their stores in London. Now I don’t have to travel across the pond to experience their stylish and timeless products. Their new store on lower Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron district carries a myriad of candles […]

KRB in NYC

01 . 19 . 17

Yesterday, I walked over to see the newly relocated KRB store. KRB stands for Kate Rheinsten Brodsky who owns the shop. Those of you in the design world might know that Kate is the daughter of legendary interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein. Suzanne is one of the nicest people I have ever met and the apple doesn’t […]

I’m long over due for a trip to Los Angeles and now I have another reason to book a ticket.  The Apartment by The Line has just opened on the iconic tree lined Melrose Place. Co-founder and executive creative director Vanessa Traina Snow and creative director Melanie Glass have created a home like space that will evolve on a […]

The couture shows are happening right now in Paris but there are always other fashion events that are scheduled during the same week.  One of those included the new Tory Burch flagship store opening on rue Saint-Honoré. “Designed by architect Daniel Romualdez, who’s done the rest of Tory’s stores and her own home in New York, […]

Every time I take a walk on the Upper East Side, it seems like another store has closed. That’s one of the reasons I was especially excited that Marin Hopper decided to open her beautiful new flagship store Hayward House on East 70th Street. Marin Hopper is the daughter of Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward. […]

I really wish I had visited Lisa Jackson’s store LJ Cross before I left for Costa Rica. It’s filled year round with all the essentials you need for warm weather trips such as bathing suits, sunglasses, hats, and sarongs. There are also lovely cashmere pieces and apparel for city living too. Lisa said she tries hard […]

If you are heading to Milan for Maison & Objet in April, make sure you visit the new Bottega Veneta home store. It’s located in the 18th-century Palazzo Gallarati Scotti where frescoes by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and Carlo Innocenzo Carlone are the perfect backdrop for the furniture and accessories set up in a living room, dining room, studio, […]

Bonjour J.Crew

03 . 09 . 15

The new J.Crew store in Paris conveniently opened the day after we arrived so we popped over to Le Marais to check it out. It’s women’s only but it’s full of fun displays and special edition Saint Jacques striped shirts only available at this store. We saw the cute food trucks outside but they were […]

When everyone found out I was visiting San Francisco, they all suggested I should visit the store MARCH on Sacramento Street. They are known for their very chic selection of products that include tabletop pieces, cookware, furniture, art, and even some clothing. They are very particular about photos but allowed me to take some to share […]

While walking in Sag Harbor last Sunday, I ran into interior designer Kristen McGinnis, who told me that I had to stop into Bloom (no website).  I’ve been to Sag Harbor many times but have never been to Bloom which I realize now was a huge shame.  Not only does it have the chicest exterior […]
