I am feeling sexy-positive in the newDesigual x María Escotécollection. It’s out of this world, it’s totally wild, and it’s all about loving freely, just like nature intended. There are always bursts of color on the #DesigualxMariaEscote sexy planet and I am loving it.
What I love about Franco Sarto shoes is that they’re simply elegant and comfortable. This is a brand that’s been around since the early 90’s and continues to bring innovation to Italian designs and I am so excited that Dylana and I got to be faces for this new campaign as sisters! Franco Sarto created inFORMA comfort technology, so that there is exceptional support with each step. These are two shoes that are meant to be loved and lived in. I’m styling both the Milano slingback pump and Balin platform loafera million ways this fall and winter. Simply grab a knit maxi or your favorite tailored suit, and interchange your shoes, pump or loafer, depending on your mood.
Franco Sarto gets me excited about sustainable, timeless footwear to wear around the city. I can’t stop moving in the Milano slingback pump and Balin platform loafer. The Italians certainly have a way with shoes. These are two very iconic styles that every woman needs in her closet. I like mine with a sexy sheer tight and classic black sock. How about you?
I worked on a very special project with The Shade Store to update my home and I am in love with the final result! My installation is complete and my home feels so beautiful and totally refreshed. New drapery and shades was exactly what my windows needed. I hope you enjoyed being taken around during the entire design process: feeling the Holland & Sherry fabric swatches sent directly to my home, stopping by the beautiful showroom here in Dumbo, Brooklyn to work with my local design consultant, to the final installation. The team was so professional and really aimed for perfection when it came to what I was envisioning, which was to brighten up my loft and really make my windows stand out.
I wanted something clean and elegant, yet still felt like a cozy home. The luxurious blackout drapery I chose is made with Holland & Sherry andes wool in the color Rye. It’s the softest to touch, and it’s the most beautiful neutral color. It’s not too dark, not too light, and still makes a total statement, especially in the ripple fold drapery.
The linen sheer drapery came out gorgeous throughout my bedroom. I chose the color Natural. These are all colors that calm me and really look stunning when the sun comes through in the mornings and evenings. It creates such a romantic mood light.
As a New Yorker, roller shades are a necessity. I went with blackout roller shades in the color Sand, and a sheer roller shade that allows me to see the city skyline at night but still gives my home just the right amount of privacy. Going with a soft color like Sand gives the shades a little added uniqueness compared to a typical roller shade. These are my favorite corners of my loft. Places where I read, or simply stare out the window to see the water. Thanks to my design consultant, the hardware and measurements came out beautiful and completely functional. Perfection is all I can say. It’s amazing how the little details can really make a house feel like a home. I love my windows more than ever.

I love a good CHANEL throwback. Sometimes all you need is all black, some pops of red, and a good gold chain. This is a new pair of shades from the current CHANEL collection and I am digging the 90’s supermodel feel they give. Here’s to the classics.
