Have you been reading all the features on whether New York is dead or not? I took a walk today and every street on the Upper East Side was bustling with outside dinners and a new bodega had opened in a location that was left empty when another bodega closed this past winter. A lot […]

A Change of Direction

07 . 29 . 20

It’s always around the end of July that I start to get sick of my colorful summer clothes and begin to reach for neutrals. It’s also around this time that I try to take advantage of the final days of sale season. There are still a a lot of good pieces left this year. I’ve […]

Summertime Blues 2019

08 . 19 . 19

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 […]

Sale Finds for Fall

08 . 14 . 19

Sale season has come to an end on Net-a-Porter but luckily there are still some wonderful pieces to be found at other retailers. I’ve put together some of my favorites sale selections that are perfect for transitioning to fall like the double-breasted wool trench coat above that is half off. As you know, I’m a […]

I’ve been home for a week now and feels really good to be back.  I love that I can shop on Sundays and get anything I want delivered at any time.  It’s also been great to see my friends and my favorite people in the neighborhood. Oh, and yes I got an amazing manicure and pedicure […]

Sorry for the light posts this past week.  I was traveling with my friend in London and now I’m showing her the sights of Paris. It’s the start of the August vacances season so the city is pretty quiet right now. Luckily, most all of the stores, cafes, and sights are still open but there […]

I usually like to end the week with a personal Bon Weekend post about Paris but it’s too hot to think here.  I appreciate open French windows and fresh air until it reaches 90 degrees.  Then I start to miss American style arctic air conditioning.  Although I have to say it’s no where near as […]

“The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its tuning.  The weeks that come before are only a climb from the balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of […]

August marks the first full issue of Town & Country with Stephen Drucker at the helm and it looks like he’s already off to a great start. Included in the issue is a fabulous, I mean ridiculously fabulous home that New York interior designer Miles Redd designed in Atlanta. These are just three of my […]
