Savoring Summer

08 . 31 . 12

Labor Day weekend in America is the unofficially end of summer.  Where did the time go?!  But just because it’s almost fall doesn’t mean you have to put away your stripes.  Saint James has just debuted a new eight piece capsule collection at Barneys that are perfect for what the French call  la rentrée.  It […]

A Good Day

07 . 19 . 12

Many of my days are spent working at home alone. That’s why I enjoy getting out and about for appointments and meetings.  Tuesday was especially fun filled so I thought I’d give you a glimpse into a good day.   It started with a 10:0am press appointment for India Hicks Jewelry at The Mark Hotel. […]

Going to California

05 . 24 . 12

“Made up my mind to make a new start, going to California with an aching in my heart. Someone told me there’s a girl there  with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.” – Led Zeppelin I can’t believe this is only the second season for Chance.  It just feels like it’s been […]

Thanks Barneys!

11 . 18 . 11

I can’t walk down Madison Avenue without popping into Barneys for a little shopping or sometimes just inspiration.  So, I was extremely honored to be interviewed for their Barneys: The Window blog.  You can read my thoughts on design and fashion as well as what I would would be wearing in the morning if I […]

Brooks and Barneys

02 . 02 . 11

Last week, Barney’s named Amanda Cutter Brooks their new women’s fashion director.  Sometimes she’s just seen as a socialite but Amanda was previously creative director for Tuleh and Hogan.  She’s also contributed to Vogue and Men’s Vogue.  She also wrote the great book, I Love Your Style.  As my friend Jessica Gold pointed out, “she’s […]

La Table d’Hermès

07 . 13 . 10

I’m officially over summer and all I can think of is autumn with it’s crisp cool weather and beautiful clothes. I also think this amazing sepia toned tableware “Les Maisons Enchantées” from Hermès would be perfect for fall feasts and even more spectacular at Thanksgiving! You might just want to keep it away from the […]

I didn’t make it to The Whitney yesterday but I still saw some fabulous art. It was just in the form of Richard Ginori hand painted china at Barneys. While collection looked fabulous en masse, I could also picture it looking especially bellissimo mixed with Haviland Limoges Lacque de Chine China. And it makes me […]

Have a Witty Holiday!

11 . 17 . 09

Call me old fashioned but I usually like to digest my turkey and pumpkin pie before I can even start to think about Christmas. But since the holiday windows in New York are starting to be unveiled, I figure I have to get over it and start posting them! Simon Doonan, the Creative Director of […]

Hippie Holiday!

11 . 18 . 08

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the city and feel like like it too! It’s freezing! But before it turned too cold, I managed to take a few photos of the Barney’s holiday windows. This year, they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the peace sign with a Hippie Holiday. I am […]

To My Shagreen

08 . 22 . 07

I happened to be looking around blogland today and stumbled upon Studio Annetta’s lovely blog to find that she had just profiled one of my favorite design firms, Augousti. Owners Ria and Yiouri are pictured above. You have probably seen their shagreen and snakeskin bags around, as many stores carry them but their furniture is […]
