Much of what I post on Habitually Chic can be described as “aspirational” design. I know this doesn’t always translate to real life which can be frustrating to those without unlimited budgets. When my very sweet public relations friend Current D’Ignazio asked me to help her pull together her first grown up apartment in New […]

I’ve shopped eBay for as long as I can remember. I have found so many wonderful vintage pieces of art, china, and silver on the site but they also sell a myriad of new items for every room in your home. Did you know 81% of the items on eBay are new and available with […]

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to tour the new One Kings Lane store in the downtown Soho neighborhood of New York. The store doesn’t officially open to the public until Friday, November 2nd but many people already were trying to open the door to get inside to shop. Once you look through my photos, you’ll […]

Everything But the House is known for their amazing auctions of furniture, art, and objects but they also offer a wide range of amazing fashions and accessories. Just launched today is the Marilyn Lewis Designer Fashion Collection full of vintage treasures. Marilyn Lewis is described as “a woman ahead of her time” who co-founded Hamburger […]

You may remember my recent feature on Kate Rheinstein Brodsky‘s store KRB last month. Now One Kings Lane has a lovely feature on her family apartment on the Upper East Side. I’ve also included a few photos from her cover feature from Elle Decor in 2015. The best thing about the OKL story is that you […]

Vintage Ralph Lauren

07 . 29 . 15

My friend Chris Black posted a link to a fun tumblr this morning, Old Ralph Lauren Adverts.  It’s a walk down memory lane of all the vintage styles of Ralph Lauren and their “aspirational” images. Except for a few oversized styles from the 1980’s, everything looks like something you could wear today. A testament to […]

I posted this photo of my bar on Instagram and had a lot of questions about where to find some of the items. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share some bar building ideas on the blog because it’s five o’clock somewhere. The glass tortoise ice bucket in my photo is from Aero […]

I’m usually the one who answers your questions and tries to help you but this time I need your help. Today I stopped by a local store for a new watch band for my father’s vintage Breitling watch that I still have not returned to him.  The same man had changed the watch band for me a […]

Club Hamptons

06 . 24 . 14

I like the fashions at Club Monaco but ever since they updated the design of the stores, I go just as much for interior inspiration as I do to shop for clothes.  Now they have combined the best of both worlds with their new pop up home shop in Southampton. There is a mix of […]

The weather was absolutely beautiful in Paris today so I decided to explore Le Marais. During my walk, I stopped by the holy grail of bookstores, Comptoir de L’Image. The petite space is packed with vintage books and magazines from every decade. It is popular with fashion designers like Marc Jacobs and every blogger known […]

It’s funny how many times I have a post planned when someone else writes about the same subject. Normally, I scrap the post and start over which I debated doing today but decided to leave it as is since we probably don’t have all the same readers and it was the perfect follow up to […]

Love the Design

03 . 21 . 14

Everyday I’m surprised that some big brands aren’t on Instagram. But I’m also sometimes blown away by a small store or company that does it right.  In the case of Love the Design, their Instagram account makes me want to hop a plane to Toronto to shop all their lovely vintage finds, artwork, and designs […]
