Autumn in New York

11 . 11 . 13

Autumn in New YorkWhy does it seem so inviting?Autumn in New YorkIt spells the thrill of first-nighting Glittering crowds and shimmering cloudsIn canyons of steelThey’re making me feelI’m home It’s autumn in New YorkThat brings the promise of new loveAutumn in New YorkIs often mingled with pain Dreamers with empty handsMay sigh for exotic landsIt’s […]

Styled to Perfection

11 . 07 . 13

One of my readers asked me where to find the ivory cableknit sweater in my November post and I realized that I forgot to credit Emeron Fry. While I on their site looking for the link to send her, I noticed some lovely new images for fall/winter 2013. As you know, I love fashion shoots […]

The 1968 version of The Thomas Crown Affair was on TCM last night.  I always think of the theme song The Windmills of Your Mind every fall. I wish it looked a bit more like autumn in New York.  The leaves turn so late here but I know the wait will be worth it.  Until […]

Grey Days

10 . 09 . 13

As soon as the weather turns grey and chilly like today, I start pulling out my grey clothes.  It’s become my go since it’s less harsh than black and is the perfect complement to my hair color. As we know, it’s also a popular choice of paint color and plays well with almost every other […]

October

10 . 01 . 13

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a MoondanceWith the stars up above in your eyesA fantabulous night to make romance‘Neath the cover of October skiesAnd all the leaves on the trees are fallingTo the sound of the breezes that blowAnd I’m trying to please to the callingOf your heart-strings that play soft and lowAnd all […]

Sweater Weather

09 . 16 . 13

There is a real chill in the air in New York now.  Time to finally pull the sweaters out of the closet.  I love how everything comes alive in the spring but autumn is definitely this city’s best season. It’s also nice not to be sweating the minute you step out the door and the […]

Fall Book Brigade

09 . 10 . 13

I’m either going to have to build more shelves or move in order to accommodate all the new books coming out this fall. Lots of fabulous design books are about to be published from some your favorite decorators, as well as books by a few first time authors whose names you will definitely recognize.  I’ll […]

Ode to Autumn

09 . 03 . 13

Harper’s Bazaar Executive Editor Laura Brown tweeted yesterday, “Summer, I moved on emotionally weeks ago.” I couldn’t agree more.  I’m ready for crisp, cool weather, cashmere sweaters, and changing leaves. Let’s be clear, I am not ready for winter.  Even though my grey mink coat makes it slightly more bearable, it is not fun.  But […]

If there is one thing you need to buy for fall 2013, it’s an ivory fisherman cable knit sweater. You might actually have one waiting to be pulled down from the top of the closet. It’s a winter staple for many that has been updated by luxurious designers such as The Row but you can […]

The Clash

08 . 24 . 13

The new issue of T Magazine will be in Sunday’s New York Times newspaper but I already started reading it online.  I absolutely loved this spread The Curious Appeal of Pieces that Clash.  I don’t think I can afford one single thing but a girl can dream.  PHOTOGRAPHS By CHARLIE ENGMAN. STYLED By CATHERINE NEWELL-HANSON.

I haven’t done an outfit post in a while so what better way to get back in the game than a “wear now wear later” post featuring my favorite summer staple, white jeans.  As you’ve seen on the blog before, they can be worn all year if you style them right.   White Jeans for […]

I‘ve already been shopping for autumn but I still can’t wait to see what’s new from J.Crew for September. If you don’t feel prepared for fall, do I have some amazing offers for you! First, if you attend the J.Crew Style Sessions event this Thursday, August 22nd at the Prince Street store from 6:00-8:00pm, you […]

More Fall Fashions

08 . 16 . 13

I don’t shop that much at Zara because of the quality and fit but after seeing their new fall campaign, I decided to give them another try.  I braved the tourists to shop at their Fifth Avenue store to specifically buy this maroon full leather skirt. Seems I wasn’t the only one since I got […]

The September Issue

08 . 12 . 13

Some of the September issues have already hit the newsstands but the THE September issue should be available this week.  When you’re not reading the 902 pages of Vogue, you can probably do arm curls with it since I’m sure it weighs close to five pounds.  Can’t wait to pick up a copy! Photos by […]

The Goldfinch

08 . 05 . 13

While I don’t want summer to end just yet, I am eagerly anticipating all the goodies the autumn brings. One of them will be Donna Tartt’s new novel The Goldfinch, which will be released until October 22nd.  Like many of you, I loved The Secret History but wasn’t a huge fan of The Little Friend but […]

Feeling Like Fall

08 . 05 . 13

We’ve been blessed with some beautiful humidity free weather the last few days which makes it much easier to think about fall fashions. While it might be hard to get excited about buying a coat in August, these photos shot in Paris for Town & Country might help. (For full details click here.) If you wait […]

Le Sac de Sofia

07 . 13 . 13

While I was on the Vogue Paris website yesterday, I also came across this little feature on Sofia Coppola’s new limited edition Louis Vuitton SC bag exclusively for Bon Marché Rive Gauche in Paris. It’s an update of the design she created in 2009 in cobalt blue with fuchsia trim in two sizes that will be available in September 2013. Better […]
