It’s the Fourth of July holiday weekend but it doesn’t feel as celebratory this year especially since many people can’t travel or see their family. I’ve put together some things to get you through this weekend whether you will be spending it at home or the beach. My first trip post quarantine was to Sag […]

Last night, I attended the most festive party to celebrate the new collaboration between Aerin Beauty and Love Shack Fancy. It was fun to see the dresses and products in person before they officially launched today. The highlight of the evening though was meeting the owner of Le Mas des Poiriers which is where the collaboration […]

I’m not supposed to play favorites but Carlos Huber was one of the most creative and interesting people I profiled in my book Creativity at Work. The architect turned perfumer creates scents for his line Arquiste that based on a certain time and place in history that he meticulously researches down to what wood might […]

I had such a busy and enjoyable week and now that the sun is finally out, it feels like all is right with the world again. There were lots of events and openings as everyone tries to get things on the calendar before people start leaving for the Hamptons and summer vacations. But if you […]

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14th. Time to start thinking about what you will buy the mothers in your life and what you might wear if it’s your special day. Nordstrom has you covered for both with lots of beautiful dresses and Mother’s Day gifts. The free shipping and returns makes shopping at Nordstrom extremely easy. […]

Christian Dior Parfums recently invited 200 very chic fashionistas and celebrities for an even chicer dinner under the pergola of Christian Dior’s former residence, the Château de la Colle Noire, to celebrate the launch of their new scent La Colle Noire. The French designer bought the 123-acre property near Grasse, France in 1951 and loving began renovating the […]

Visiting Violet Grey

02 . 14 . 16

One of the first placesI went shopping in Los Angeles last week was the boutique Violet Grey. The Melrose Place mecca for carefully curated beauty products did not disappoint. I saw a lot of things I already use which was gratifying like the Chanel Sublimage line which I swear is the key to surviving long plane […]

I have admired French perfumer Frederic Malle since I first saw his home featured in Men’s Vogue years ago.  Last week, I treated to a private meet and greet to experience his new travel spray cases he collaborated on with shoe designer Pierre Hardy.  The travel atomizers fit inside these chic cases sprayed with the […]

Le Labo: Santal 33

05 . 25 . 11

I have been wearing Santal 26 from Le Labo for almost two years now and still love it.  I have never had more people, both men and women, ask me what I’m wearing and tell me that I smell good.  As an interior designer, I get a kick out of telling that it’s technically a […]

Love, Chloé

My friend Jessica and I are excited that fashion is moving away from the awful eighties and back to the seductive seventies and Chloé is doing it better than anyone! They just launched their new fragrance Love, Chloé in Paris at the chic restaurant Apicius which they even redecorated with seventies furniture. The pièce de […]

Chic Scents by Le Labo

08 . 23 . 09

I’ve worn the same two perfumes for years, Narciso Rodriguez in the winter and Calypso Mimosa in the summer. Recently, I felt like I needed a change and I knew just where to go, Le Labo. Every time I walked by their counter at Barneys I kept smelling the most delicious scents so I knew […]
