Chanel always has beautiful fashion shows but the Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris was especially lovely. Karl Lagerfeld imagined a French garden with traditional trellises of climbing roses surrounding a fountain. Guests sat on park benches and models walked down stone paths. It was the perfect backdrop to the […]

The design world has been attending Maison & Objet for the last week. I’ve enjoyed following along on Instagram especially since it looks so much chicer than it did when I first attended in 2009. The booth that stood out this season is Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam. The deep green walls, floral fabric, and […]

All of my fashion friends are in Paris this week and before they left, I suggested they stop by the new Buly 1803 in the Marais. This new location not only carries their cult beauty products but also has a cafe, Grand Café Tortoni. One of my friends who visited said she preferred the original […]

The French cult brand Sézane opened last week in New York and they are already a huge hit. I stopped by on Friday when I was downtown on again on Saturday with a friend when Jessica Alba also happened to be shopping. The large store and floor to ceiling shelves are filled with clothing, shoes, […]

The main reason I look forward to fall each year is that there are so many wonderful events on the calendar. It’s prime time for fashion, design, and art events including auctions. One of the most anticipated is Collection Alberto Pinto at Christie’s in Paris this September. It will be feature, furniture, art, objects, and […]

After being mostly unplugged for a week, I’m trying to get caught up on news and current events. One thing that came to light last week was that Lee Radziwill‘s Paris apartment is for sale by Emilie Garcin. The three bedroom 6th floor apartment on Avenue Montaigne in the 8th arrondissement with a view of […]

I always enjoy seeing what fashion editors and influencers wear during the Haute Couture fashion shows every January and July. The attendees are usually dressed in more relatable and inspiring outfits instead of the over-the-top attention seeking ensembles usually seen during the ready to wear shows. Vogue Paris always seems to capture the best looks […]

Paris Blues

07 . 06 . 17

One of the things I learned while living in Paris is that some of the most elegant homes in Paris can be found on rue de Varenne in the 7th arrondissement. It comes as no surprise that the 18th-century apartment of Pierre Sauvage of Casa Lopez is located on this very chic street. It’s featured […]

After a four year closure for renovations, the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris reopens today. The historic site on Place de la Concorde was built in 1758 for King Louis XV by French architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel. Apparently, Marie Antoinette took piano lessons in the mansion at one point. The Count of Crillon bought the building in 1788 […]

Designing Duo

So many apartments in Paris have white walls but not this one. It is painted in seven shades of grey graduating from light to dark as you move back to the private spaces. I came across the home of David Chaplain and Alexandre Roussard on The Socialite Family, an interesting website that features “smart and […]

I love this outfit that Aerin Lauder worn in Paris this week. I had a feeling the blouse was Chloé and actually came across it while I was out shopping today. I will have to ask her where her jeans are from since they are the perfect shade of blue. While she accessorized her outfit with a […]

Buly at Bergdorfs

04 . 19 . 17

One of my favorite places to visit on every trip to Paris is Buly 1803 on rue Bonaparte. I always stock up on my favorite creams and soap, Miel d’Angleterre. now instead of hopping a flight, I can just walk over to Bergdorf Goodman to replenish my supply. Founders Ramdane Touhami and Victoire de Taillac have […]
