It’s been so hot everywhere lately that the perfect bag to carry is something light in wicker or straw. I especially like the ones mixed with canvas and those that carry wine. I think we could all use a drink these days. Am I right? The two sizes of canvas straps allow you to carry […]

Rene Russo’s wardrobe in The Thomas Crown Affair used to be my favorite movie wardrobe inspiration but that was before I fell in love with everything that Jennifer Aniston wears in each episode of The Morning Show. It actually reminds me of what I used to wear in the corporate world when I moved to […]

I was talking with a friend recently about how you have to buy what you want right away because if you don’t, it will sell out. Retailers seem to be buying less and not restocking pieces when they sell out too. Essentially, if you snooze, you lose. I learned that lesson last year when I […]

There is nothing I find more overwhelming that creating gender and age specific holiday gift guides. Instead of doing it the way everyone else is doing it this year, I’ve decided to create a few favorite things gift guides inspired by Oprah. This one mixes gifts for everyone on your list so you can get […]

Spring Uniform

04 . 12 . 17

I’m lucky in that the same people don’t see me every work day. That means I can wear uniform and no will know. I don’t wear the same exact clothes but a variation on a theme. I came across this outfit on Marchesfashion.com and it looks like the perfect uniform for everyone this spring. Of course, you […]

If there is one dream present I would want for my birthday this month, it would be a wicker Hermes bag like the one above. Since they are a bit pricey, I’ve put together some other options for myself and you. They would be perfect to carry for Easter and all your spring events. Bamboo Handle […]

Fashion week just ended in New York and there was a lot of great street style this season. One chic trend that appeared were tan clutches and bags. This classic color is perfect for fall so here are a couple of options if you don’t already have one in your closet. Loewe T Large Pouch […]

Every time I take a walk on the Upper East Side, it seems like another store has closed. That’s one of the reasons I was especially excited that Marin Hopper decided to open her beautiful new flagship store Hayward House on East 70th Street. Marin Hopper is the daughter of Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward. […]

There is nothing like waking up to snow on April 16th to really depress you. It’s the kind of day when a little hot pink lipstick like Michelle Williams is wearing in the new spring ads for Louis Vuitton might be in order. The photos are so chic and cheerful that they actually want to […]

I’ve been a huge fan of Anya Hindmarch since I bought my first pair of her shoes at Harrod’s on a trip to London in 2005. They were petrol colored calf hair and came in a box so beautiful that I’ve kept them to this day. Her tiny store on East 60th Street was she […]

The Clash

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.

Le Sac de Sofia

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 […]
