40 East End Avenue

I’ve lived in New York a long time and I feel like I’ve seen everything so it takes a lot to impress me, but I can honestly say that 40 East End Avenue is truly impressive. The newly completed building on the Upper East Side from real estate developer Lightstone was designed by internationally renowned […]

I’m spending part of my vacation next week in Sag Harbor. I can’t wait to see all my friends and what’s new in town. A few stores have moved including Bloom whose long time location was purchased by a designer. She moved close by and I’m sure it’s just as chic as the old store […]

Summer Vacation

I’m not going on vacation until next week and it’s probably for the best. It will give Montauk and the Hamptons a little time to dry out after Tropical Storm Henri. Luckily, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been but did cause major flooding in some areas.I came across these photos of model […]

“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

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.

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 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 […]

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.
