California Cool

09 . 14 . 16

After years of bi-coastal living, Chance designer Julia Leach finally decided to give up her New York apartment and move to Venice, California. Any New Yorker who tells you they don’t think about moving somewhere else is totally lying. We all think about it, especially when it involves sunshine and fresh air. Julia didn’t waste […]

Chance in Mexico

05 . 04 . 16

Since Julia Leach moved to California, I haven’t seen her so it was a treat to see her two days in a row last week. One was to see the preview for her new Mexico inspired Chance capsule collection that launches on Cinqo de Mayo. Julia’s love of Mexico began in the 1970’s when she first traveled to […]

Le Lieu Perdu

07 . 28 . 15

I came across a photo on Pinterest yesterday that led me to a dreamy rental property Le Lieu Perdu in France on Lonny.  It didn’t surprise me to read that Julia Leach, the founder of Chance, was the one who had rented the turreted home in the Dordogne region of France.  She said she bookmarked the listing on […]

Take a New Chance

06 . 27 . 15

The worst part of the fashion calendar is that when you actually want to buy summer clothes, you’ll find nothing but in the stores but wool coats. If you’re still in need of key pieces to get you through warm weather any time of year, head to Chance where you’ll find everything you need.  The […]

Those of you who can’t make it to New York to shop Housing Works Design on a Dime are in luck.  Chance Co. founder Julia Leach has curated a sale full of blue and white delights for One Kings Lane. You could actually furnish an entire beach house with her picks and I’ve chosen a […]

Since I’m currently traveling, I thought it would be appropriate to post the holiday travel gift guide.  When I was thinking of who I could ask to contribute their travel gift suggestions, Julia Leach, the founder of Chance was the first person who came to mind.  She always seems to be off somewhere and they only […]

A New Chance

06 . 08 . 14

The Chance Co. summer preview was the morning of my flight to Paris so I couldn’t attend.  It looks great in the photos they send so I’m sure it was even better in person.  Founder Julia Leach was inspired this season by the beauty of Sweden and has added a little pattern to her repertoire […]

“Of all peoples, the Greeks have dreamt the dream of life best.” – Goethe For her third season of Chance, founder and creative director Julia Leach not only dreamed of Greece but traveled there to capture the spirit of the collection on location.  She worked with local photographer Yiorgos Kaplasnidis and a local model  in these […]

Sale on Stripes

02 . 16 . 13

Even though I woke up to snow flurries this morning, I know spring can’t be too far behind.  To get in the mood, I suggest buying stripes.  Lucky for you, Chance has just launched its first ever sale this week.  You can save 40% on everything until Sunday, February 24th including their signature shirts and even the […]

A Good Day

07 . 19 . 12

Many of my days are spent working at home alone. That’s why I enjoy getting out and about for appointments and meetings.  Tuesday was especially fun filled so I thought I’d give you a glimpse into a good day.   It started with a 10:0am press appointment for India Hicks Jewelry at The Mark Hotel. […]

Cool on the Cape

05 . 29 . 12

Memorial Day is supposed to be a day to remember the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. In reality, it’s become the unofficial start of summer and beach season. I loved visiting Cape Cod when I lived in Boston so I felt a pang of nostalgia when I saw John […]

Stars and Stripes

05 . 23 . 12

This post of stripes is in honor of the Chance Co. pop up shop that is debuting in Barneys in New York and Los Angeles today. I’m off to the press preview and can’t wait to congratulate designer Julia Leach and see the new spring collection inspired by California.  While I’m gone, you can watch […]
