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.
Yep, the dress-over-pant trend is certainly classy and edgy. Can you believe these photos came from only a few weeks ago? The girls and I did go out in Williamsburg last night, still sporting our overworn ankle length coats and scarves. Bring on those hot, humid summers we all know and love! The tiny tank dresses. The wideleg trousers. We are certainly closer now to storing our heavy winter items to reveal all the spring happening underneath. I can finally wear this ensemble out without all the layers.
This is certainly one of my most outstanding coats in my closet. The most luxe, yet worn on always the most casual of days. A constant head turner. I’ve worn it numerous times throughout the winter, yet this is it’s first appearance on le blog…and with a bang. So, how the heck do you get away with these bold jewel tones?
