I had planned to post my Mother’s Day Gift Guide last week but my time in Charleston got away from me. But don’t worry, you still have time to shop for the wonderful women in your life. Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 12th which gives you three weeks to pick out the perfect presents. […]

It’s not quite warm enough for spring clothes in New York yet but the weather is sure to be gorgeous in Charleston when I travel down south for my birthday in April. Funny enough, the new Halsbrook catalog was also photographed in Charleston. The great patterns and colors of their spring fashions look perfectly at […]

Legendary costume jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane passed away almost a year ago and now art, antiques, and objects collected over his lifetime are up for auction at Christie’s Interiors: New York Visions sale on June 6, 2018. Also included in the sale are The Collection of Arnold Scaasi and Parker Ladd, and Robert Couturier: Elements […]

One of the most anticipated events every January is the Winter Antiques Show which benefits the East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx with programs that “focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity.” The mix of art, antiques, objects, and jewelry never […]

June is high season for weddings which means it’s the perfect time to pick out some new jewelry. Nordstrom has a wide selection of styles for the bride, her attendants, and guests. As usual, the best thing about shopping at Nordstrom is the free shipping and returns. I don’t have any weddings on my calendar […]

Mother’s Day is a little less than two weeks away. If you haven’t found a gift yet for the moms in your life, Nordstrom has a myriad of fine jewelry options that would make the perfect present. If you are a mom, you may want to forward this post to someone as a hint. With free […]

Say Hello to Halsbrook

03 . 23 . 16

Once everyone is back from spring break, events start filling the calendar once again. That means planning what to wear to all of them has to start too. One great place to begin looking for outfits is Halsbrook. The online site was founded by Harvard Business School graduate Halsey Schroeder as a place for the modern […]

Cartier Rendez-Vous

03 . 10 . 16

One of the most fun and whimsical presentations of Paris Fashion Week was by Cartier. They rented out the Hotel Montana in Saint Germain and created different fantasy scenarios filled with every Cartier product from high jewelry, watches, handbags, leather goods, sunglasses, stationery, to even champagne. It was a lovely departure for the usually staid brand. I recently […]

Who says Valentine’s Day has to be only about couples?! I think you can celebrate with and buy gifts for your best friend, sister, mother, daughter, aunt, grandmother, and yourself. A great place to start looking is Nordstrom. I love all the different options they carry from high jewelry to everyday options. And if you […]

Gaia Repossi in Paris

10 . 21 . 15

It’s funny how white apartments might be boring elsewhere but always look chic in Paris. Such is the case of the apartment of jewelry designer Gaia Repossi. It helps that hers has high windows and beautiful wood floors that set a great backdrop for her furniture and art. It also looks like there is an interesting upstairs […]

I had the pleasure of visiting jewelry designer Cynthia Gale in her showroom this week and learned more about her art and travel inspired designs. Her Wiener Werkstatte Collection, seen here, was inspired by the Vienna, Austria community of artists, architects, and designers which sought to restore the values of handcraftsmanship to an industrial society. It only approved […]

I really wish I had visited Lisa Jackson’s store LJ Cross before I left for Costa Rica. It’s filled year round with all the essentials you need for warm weather trips such as bathing suits, sunglasses, hats, and sarongs. There are also lovely cashmere pieces and apparel for city living too. Lisa said she tries hard […]
