Tory Sport: Tennis


Tennis has been my favorite sport since I was a little girl. Now, I haven't been out on the court as much as I would like recently ... but the launch of Tory Burch's athletic brand, Tory Sport might just push me to do so. I am SO in love with this perfect pleated tennis skirt and this sweater (in cashmere, of course!). Game, Set, Match.

The Real Deal


I have recently become quite addicted to the online luxury consignment store, The Real Real. It is chalk full of fabulous designer finds, and is an incredible place to find classic accessories (that never go on sale!) that you will want to have in your closet forever (but at a fraction of the price!). The initial cost may seem steep, but the price per wear on these items is almost nothing given how timeless they are. Here are a few of my favorite finds as of late ...  





HERMES - Kelly Double Tour Wrap Watch 

CHANEL - Quilted Wallet 

CELINE - Medium Embossed Trapeze Bag

HERMES - Silk Scarf 

CHANEL - Classic Caviar Jumbo Double Flap Bag

Elie Saab has long been one of my favorite designers, particularly for his elegant couture creations. Thus, I am beyond delighted that just this week he has debuted his first ever bridal collection. It is just as breathtaking as I would have imagined with the most intricate lace and show-stopping silhouettes.

Let's just say that lately I am very thankful for the "athleisure" trend as it fits into my lifestyle quite nicely right now given that I spend most of my time running around with my darling little ones.

Les Bonbons by Rebecca de Ravenel



Having grown up in both the Bahamas and Paris, it is no surprise that designer Rebecca de Ravenel has an effortlessly chic style that is all her own. Upon moving to LA recently Rebecca started sporting her Les Bonbons silk earrings and people could not get enough ... thus she starting selling them! They are the perfect statement earring that can be worn to a black tie gala or a day at the beach club ... how many things in your closet can you say that about? (probably nothing!)

Editorial Inspiration: Modern Bride

As I have recently been working on styling a few clients who are brides, I have been looking through some of my old archived files for inspiration. I came across one of my favorite bridal editorials from Town & Country a few years ago. I simply adore these elegant images depicting the essence of the modern bride. In following the look of the first image, how fabulous would it be to sport feathers like these for your wedding after-party?

Anne Robin Calligraphy

I have long admired the work of Los Angeles-based calligrapher, Anne Robin. She is known for her beautiful modern calligraphy styles and her work has been featured in an abundance of publications (particularly related to weddings!).

This week I was most delighted to discover something in her shop that I think many new moms would be thrilled know about (just as I was!). She has found the answer to the tacky 'monthly photo signs' that everyone uses these days when taking photos of their infants each month. ... Hello, gorgeous calligraphed signs in beautiful hues! I had been hesitant to use any photo signs before, but you better believe that I am buying these ones to use for my photos of my darling Grace.

La Ligne



A line dedicated to effortlessly chic stripes? .... Yes, please! Founded by some of my style icons (former Vogue editors and the head of business development for Rag & Bone), La Ligne has built both wardrobe staples and statement pieces from the universally classic stripe. With founders like those, it is no surprise that their first collection is absolute perfection. I am currently coveting many of their essentials such as the Lean Lines Tee and Classique Knit

Gorgeous Giambattista Gown

The beauty of instagram is being able to watch an event unfold in real time without being there. Let's just say I was delighted to get a glimpse into Claire Distenfeld's wedding, which took place at the Parker in Palm Springs this past weekend. As the owner of the renowned and carefully curated luxury boutique, Fivestory, it is no surprise that the day was oozing with exquisite taste. Her custom Giambattista Valli gown was utterly breathtaking and entire bridal look was absolute perfection. I have no doubt that this wedding will be covered by a major publication (thinking, Vogue?), but her look was just too beautiful not to share with you all right away.
