Some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe over the years have been from Burberry. I had a grey wool coat with a brown mink collar that I wore until it turned threadbare. I also have a wine colored Burberry dress that I wear to far too many events. The point I’m trying to make […]

En Vacances: Part Deux

08 . 11 . 16

I’m not traveling until the fall so it’s hard not to have a little fomo while scrolling through Instagram. It looks like everyone is en vacance somewhere chic like the Amalfi Coast or French Riviera. Here are a few of my favorite images from the last few weeks. @decorno in Italy @hotelducapedenroc in Antibes @aliceinherpalace in Sardinia […]

En Vacances

07 . 28 . 16

Sometimes I have to stop looking at Instagram since it looks like everyone is en vacances in Europe right now. The two hot spots I’ve noticed from my feed are Corsica and the Amalfi Coast and Russian fashionista Mira Duma has hit both this week. Not only am I loving her picture post card perfect […]

Happy Father’s Day!

06 . 18 . 16

I posted these photo of bespoke tailer Kirk Miller of Miller’s Oath and his son Grey Miller on Father’s Day three years ago and they definitely deserve a repost. Alice and Kirk moved their family of five to Montecito last year so I don’t see them as often now. I couldn’t believe Grey how much taller and older Grey […]

‘Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Photo by me via Instagram

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I’m ready to start thinking about Christmas. The last time I went all out decorating for the holidays, I was cleaning up pine needles in my apartment for months. So I’ve been thinking about how I can get the look with less mess. My current inspiration is Alessandra Branca‘s dining room that […]

I still can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week. It also means that holiday parties will be in full swing very soon. If you’re looking for a shimmery party dress to wear to an event or a cozy gift to give, J.McLaughlin has everything you need to embrace the season and its sentiments. And if this next […]

Chic in Corsica

06 . 01 . 15

I’ve never been to Corsica but the house that Olivier Marty and Karl Fournier of Studio KO designed makes me immediately want to immediately book a trip. That and the fact that it’s cold and grey in New York today. The duo restored the abandoned home and created a perfect holiday house. I especially love the lack of […]

Winter is upon us in New York and most of the country. Now comes the task of trying to look cute while staying warm.  One of the best places to find everything from sweaters to sequins and everything in between is J.McLaughlin.  If you reside on the Upper East Side or near one of their 90 […]

I ordered a few books online and stopped by The Corner Bookstore today to make sure I have enough to read while I’m away for the long holiday weekend.  I picked up The Vacationers which already has me hooked but I also purchased Gone Girl so I can read it before the film version is released. After being […]

Happy Fourth of July!

Wishing all of you back in the US, a very happy Fourth of July!  Have a hot dog for me!  May the sun in his course visit no land more free, more happy, more lovely, than this our own country!   – Daniel Webster Cameron Diaz wearing Ralph Lauren in Seveneteen magazine in 1990.  Aerin Lauder […]
