Fewer Better Gifts


Almost every girl I know has had a moment during the holidays where they have been slightly disappointed because they did not receive the one gift they truly wanted. Well darlings, that situation can now be absolutely avoided.  One of my favorite brands, Cuyana (which means “to love”) wants to make sure that you adore all the gifts under the tree this year by creating “Holiday Hints”. You now have the ability to simply send a gentle nudge to your loved one with a gift idea from their selection of gorgeous products.

I am truly a fan of both giving and receiving Cuyana pieces, as they are beautifully crafted classic staples that can withstand the test of time. I love to personalize the gift by adding a signature monogram. This season I have sent my husband a “hint” for the gorgeous Leather Shopper in white.  I am absolutely smitten.

What could be more perfect than fewer, but better gifts?

A Few Favorites from Bridal Fashion Week


Two weeks ago my Instagram feed was filled with stunning images from Fall 2015 Bridal Fashion Week. It is always truly a treat to see the gorgeous gowns on the runways. These were just a few of my favorites from Monique Lhuillier, Stone Fox Bride, Marchesa, and Romono Keveza. Simply swooning.

Natasha Zinko Spring/Summer 2015






I was unfamiliar with designer, Natasha Zinko until I came across her stunning Spring/Summer 2015 Collection on Moda Operandi this week. The accomplished jewelry designer decided to try her hand at apparel and the result was nothing short of brilliant. The playful feminine lines are perfection as truly cannot get enough of the shape of these skirts. This collection is available for pre-order on Moda Operandi through October 31.

Poppy X Chopard



Recently, talented photographer Garance Dore (her blog is a MUST read) shot the beautiful Poppy Delevingne for a project she is working on with Chopard. They did the photo shoot as if they were spending a casual yet luxurious day with Poppy in her home and the result was absolutely perfect. I could not resist sharing these images with you. Such fantastic Fall fashion inspiration. Have a lovely weekend!

What's in My Bag?


Recently, Rue La La (a fabulous place to score designer deals!) launched a premier Handbag Style Guide featuring iconic designs and must-know maintenance tips to keep your handbags looking as good as new. The Style Guide prompted me to think about the fact that I have boycotted the idea of using a true diaper bag these days and have instead relied solely on my Goyard Tote to carry all my personal (& baby) needs. Here are my daily essentials I simply cannot live without.



THE ROW - Sunglasses 

RODIN - Hand Cream

MUSTELA - Baby Wipes 

NARS - The Multiple Stick in Copacabana

AVENT - Soothie Pacifier

VULLI - Sophie the Giraffe Teether  

CLEAN WELL - Hand Sanitizer Wipes 

LE MER - Protecting Fluid Sunscreen 

CHANEL - Wallet 

AERIN - 'Rose' Lip Conditioner 

GIGI NEW YORK - Python Embossed Monogrammed iPhone Case

SMYTHSON - 'Baby Notes' Notebook

Farewell to a Legend


I am heartbroken that yesterday the world lost not only an incredible designer but an incredible man. Oscar de la Renta was the epitome of taste and class, which he displayed through more than just his impeccable designs, but throughout his entire life. I have always wholeheartedly admired him as my favorite designer. He had a way of making women feel and look more beautiful than they ever could have imagined. 

The outpouring of love for this man after his passing is a true testament to who he was. The tribute to him on Vogue.Com is lovely, particularly Anna Wintour's personal account, which is unbelievably moving. You cannot get through it with dry eyes.   He will truly be missed, but never forgotten. He has left the world a more beautiful place.

Esme Vie in Paris







Just a few weeks ago one of my new favorite brands, Esme Vie, was showing their latest collection at the Raphael Hotel in Paris. The hotel, the place where Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy used to call home while they were in the 'city of light' (and the place where I stayed when I was there last year) was the perfect backdrop for the timeless collection with beautifully ornate floral details. Photographer, Jamie Beck so eloquently captured these images of the scene and the designer herself, Julia Voitenko.  Some gorgeous pieces from Esme Vie are available for purchase online here

Lovely Locusts on Hudson Wedding



Town & Country Weddings has always been my favorite place to find wedding inspiration. Thus, this Fall I was disappointed to see that they did not publish a separate Fall/Winter Weddings Issue. However, I was delighted to see that they did include a fabulous weddings insert in the latest November issue ..... just a little tip for all of you Town & Country Wedding fans like me!

Another incredible place for stunning wedding inspiration is the T&C website. That is where this week I discovered this beautiful affair in Statsburg, NY. I could not get over lovely lovely the setting was, particularly all the vines growing on the estate. Not to mention, they had funfetti cake (my favorite!)

Young Hollywood


I absolutely could not be a bigger fan of Claiborne Swanson Frank's incredible photography. Thus, I am delighted that she has just published her second book of portraits, Young Hollywood.  Each page is filled with gorgeous images of young starlets and the book is the perfect addition to any coffee table. For a glimpse into Claiborne's everyday life, I adore following her on Instagram

Valentin Yudashkin Spring 2015



Russian designer, Valentin Yudashkin is typically known for his ornate evening gowns. But, the daywear he showed at Paris Fashion Week this season absolutely blew me away. From the perfect pastel palette to the sleek and chic silhouettes, these looks had me swooning.

Pale Pink Perfection

With a dainty bow, 3/4 length sleeves, an open v-shape back, and in the perfect shade of pale pink .... this RED Valentino dress could not get any better. I truly don't think I could have designed something myself that I love more. Simply smitten.

Giambattista Valli Spring 2015



There has been a lot of buzz around Giambattista Valli after gorgeous Amal Alamuddin was spotted wearing this incredible number during her wedding weekend to George Clooney just a few weeks ago. I must say the brand's Spring 2015 Collection deserves just as much attention. I cannot get over the scallop and cut out details. Perfectly feminine yet modern.
