With my schedule, a pantsuit is just easy. Throw on and go. No thought required. Always smart and extra chic. This one is by my favorite, Anna Sui, straight off the runway. A perfect 70’s inspired cut and in the most nubby and soft fabric that is almost as comfortable as my sweats…almost. This week is a special one. I get to be home in NYC as we creep up on my birthday this Friday. Scorpio babies, Happy Birthday to you! We certainly aren’t your average creature…strong, mysterious, and a bit crazy. Just the way I like it.
I’m clearly stuck somewhere between summer and fall. A vintage bustier crop top I found in Paris with a brand new 3×1 plaid powersuit. Summer has felt effortless for me. I never had to think about what to wear. I basically lived in bikinis as I have hopped from island to island, and it’s finally time to dig into some pre-fall. My looks have been a combination of seasons because come on, powersuits always look best with a little crop action.
Good morning everyone! I’m currently writing from my ocean view balcony here in Kapalua Bay, Maui with my Veuve Clicquot team and I couldn’t be happier. I have fallen in love with this balmy, Hawaiian air. NYC humidity, you’ll just have to wait until I’m back! So far, we’ve sipped countless glasses of champagne, had the best massages ever, and spent hours swimming with the sea turtles. It’s been magical. Anyways, I just wanted to say a little Sunday hello as it looks like I’ll be working remotely from my laptop for the next few weeks. Backlogged on emails and everything else, I’m too busy soaking in the sun on island time. Maui -> St. Martin -> then straight to London for a shoot. I’m in and out of NYC for the next month. EEEK!! I’m getting as much R & R today until I’m hit with Monday madness. In the meantime, check out this incredible Fendi ensemble I took to the streets of Tribeca.
Being a homeowner has proven how worth-it it is to invest in quality, statement to keep forever. My Dumbo, Brooklyn loft is my sanctuary. It’s also my workspace. It’s eclectic. It’s unique. It’s contemporary. Meet these two stunning Stewart-Schafer icelandic sheepskin chairs…designed and made right here in Brooklyn. I’m so excited to tell you all about this amazing interior design duo.
