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 […]

The most exciting event on the spring calendar each year is the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and this year is especially exciting because it also marks the 100 year anniversary of the the non-profit organization. The show house will be located in the Arthur Sachs Mansion at 58 East 66th Street on the Upper East Side. […]

All Hallows Eve

10 . 30 . 14

New York is all dressed up for autumn and Halloween right now. The Upper East Side gets very into decorating for Halloween and some of the decorations are seriously scary. I prefer the chic and subtle approach and thought I would share some of my favorites with you as well as some turning leaves. Happy […]

I happened to walk down East 71st Street between Lexington and Third Avenues a few days ago and noticed a new for sale sign at 169 East 71st Street.  This Upper East Side brownstone is best known as the building where Holly Golightly lives in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The townhouse was split […]

In the Spring

04 . 28 . 14

The weather in New York still isn’t cooperating but at least the city is looking pretty, especially the Upper East Side.  In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish’d dove;  In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. –  Alfred Lord Tennyson Flowers by Ariston Florist in the […]

Destination Fabulous

04 . 18 . 14

When Chico’s asked me to participate in their Destination Fabulous campaign and create a city guide, I couldn’t imagine how I’d narrow down all the wonderful places I love in New York. So instead, I’ve narrowed my focus down to my neighborhood on the Upper East Side and my 10 favorite places. We joke that […]

“Uptown is the new downtown ” is no longer a joke now that The East Pole has opened on the Upper East Side.  I’ve been hearing good things about the restaurant opened by the team responsible for The Fat Radish for a while but just experienced it for myself last night. I’ve also heard that […]

Herrera at Home Again

02 . 20 . 14

I was flipping through the new March 2014 issue of InStyle magazine and was surprised to find a feature on Carolina Herrera‘s home.  The photos including more than those here don’t show too much of anything new but are worth checking out anyway.  I especially love the books waiting to be read in the library above. Maybe I […]

Happy Chic Holidays

12 . 06 . 13

Since I just got back from my trip, it means I’m behind on my holiday decorating.  I need to go out this weekend and get a wreath, garland, and Amaryllis. Until I get myself together, I leave you with some Instagram photos from London, Paris, and New York, mixed in with some other holiday decorating […]

Bon Weekend

11 . 01 . 13

While you all were getting sick eating too much candy last night, I was really sick with a terrible sore throat. While I recover and try to get caught up on my blog posts, enjoy these chic and simple holiday decorations from the Upper East Side.  Remember, pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween. Bon weekend!  Photos […]

I walk down East 70th Street almost everyday which takes me past a very large townhouse with an imposing wall to keep out the prying eyes of the Upper East Side.  Thanks to Curbed, I now realize it belongs to Bunny Mellon and is on the market for a cool $46 Million via Sotheby’s International […]

Secondhand Chic

02 . 02 . 13

I don’t know what I love more about Vaunte, the secondhand treasures from some of the city’s chicest women or the photos of them in their equally chic homes.  Actually, the best is finding your sartorial soul mate who wears the same size in shoes.  Happy shopping and bon weekend!

April

The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day.  – Robert Frost Photo by moi

Luckily, I managed to get out and take some photos of the wonderful holiday decorations on the Upper East Side before I became an incubus of viral plague.  New Yorkers really know how to go all out.  Enjoy!  Photos by Heather Clawson for Habitually Chic

The Upper East Side just got a whole lot more dashing now that the new J.Crew Men’s Shop just opened up.  The store is located on the corner of Madison Avenue and 79th Street, conveniently right across from the Women’s Collection store.  The interiors were inspired by the “400 year old farm dwellings of the […]
