The Carolina Herrera boutique on Madison Avenue just received the chicest renovation and redecoration. The store opened in the year 2000 so it was overdue for a refresh. The neutral interiors are now full of light from the new windows and colorful furniture that I suspect is attempt to lure in younger shoppers and not […]

The first part of New York fashion week highlights younger and emerging designers while the second half of the schedule is dedicated to the larger more established fashion houses. Carolina Herrera, with Wes Gordon at the helm, kicks things off Monday morning at the New York Historical Society. You should be able to watch the […]

Think Pink

09 . 14 . 15

I can’t think of a chicer way to start a Monday than attending the Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer 2016 runway show at The Frick Collection. It was the perfect venue and the intimate space meant that every attendee had a front row seat. I was able to see all the pleating details and embroidery up close as well as […]

Today I had the pleasure of attending the Carolina Herrera resort 2016 preview.  It would have been an outside garden party if the weather had cooperated but it was no less fun or chic indoors. According to the notes, the resort collection began with a feather illustration. “The idea of lightness, grace, and simplicity too […]

Fashion Week Kickoff

09 . 04 . 14

New York Fashion Week kicked off last night with a fete at Gracie Mansion and I noticed a theme among a few of the designers.  Jenna Lyons of J.Crew, Ralph Lauren, and Carolina Herrera all wore grey and white.  A great way to transition your white pieces for after Labor Day. I’ll be attending all […]

More Magical Maine

08 . 31 . 14

When I was thinking about what to post for the Labor Day holiday weekend, I couldn’t think of anything better than these photos of model Hilary Rhoda and Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears in Maine. They appeared in American Vogue in November 2013 and Vogue Australia in January 2014 and  epitomize preppy American chic. If […]

When I walking to Bergdorf Goodman in a snowstorm in 2004 to have Mrs. Herrera sign a copy of her book Carolina Herrera for me, never in my wildest dreams could I ever imagine I would be giving her a signed copy of my book ten years alter.  But that’s exactly what happened today when […]

Herrera at Home Again

02 . 20 . 14

I was flipping through the new March 2014 issue of InStyle magazine and was surprised to find a feature on Carolina Herrera‘s home.  The photos including more than those here don’t show too much of anything new but are worth checking out anyway.  I especially love the books waiting to be read in the library above. Maybe I […]

Fashionable Friday

09 . 13 . 13

New York fashion week just ended yesterday and I’m definitely still recovering.  While I take a moment to finally catch up on my emails and edit my photos, I leave you with this fashionable abode.  Domaine Home posted some photos this week and it reminded me how much I love this apartment owned by the […]

House of Herrera

It’s my dream to spend time with my ultimate style idol, Carolina Herrera.  Until that actually happens, I’ll make due with these images of her very chic studio via Vogue and her instagram feed.  Photos by Victoria Will via Vogue

The Chic Family

11 . 27 . 12

Make sure you pick up the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  It’s chock full of fabulous fashion and a look inside Patricia Herrera Lansing’s New York apartment. You can also read the entire story here. I can’t decide what I want more now, a ball gown or a teepee!   Photos by Christopher Sturman 

Summer in New York is all about getting out of town.  Patricia Herrera Lansing and her family head out to a lovely Guy Lowell designed house from 1914. Technically, it’s not the Hamptons but “Herrera on the North Shore” didn’t quite have the same ring. It was featured in Elle Decor in October 2010 and […]

Some people’s homes get featured a million times and others seem to sit quietly under the radar.  The latter is why I was very excited to see Patricia Herrera Lansing’s apartment featured on APT with LSD on Vogue.com.  In case you don’t know, Patricia is the daughter of my style idol Carolina Herrera.  The chicness […]

One of my Spanish readers who writes Me Gusta La Moda was kind enough to forward me this photo of Carolina Herrera looking very chic at a fitting in her studio.  The model is Eugenia Silva who was to wear the dress to the Costume Institute Gala.  The man kneeling on the floor is Carolina […]

There are occasionally moments in my life in New York when I feel like I want to pinch myself to make sure they are real and attending Carolina Herrera‘s Fall 2010 fashion show yesterday morning was one of them. It was definitely a dream come true and also one that didn’t disappoint. It’s one thing […]

The Herrera Home

01 . 10 . 10

Of course, Carolina Herrera’s home looks just as chic as the designer herself. I just wish there were photos of it online! I did find some good ones on The Peak of Chic that came from a Dutch design magazine but it doesn’t seem like it has been published in an American magazine in quite […]

Fashion designer Carolina Herrera celebrated her birthday this past Friday (71 is clearly the new 51!) and still looks just as chic as she did when she was a young girl. As you can tell from the photos, she found her style early on and stuck with it. She is the epitome of grace and […]
