It's truly suffice to say that Nell Diamond's wedding to Teddy Wasserman was an absolute Instagram sensation. Held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Rock, the multi-day affair was planned by Fait Accompli, the same team who planned the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge's wedding just a few years ago. Every detail was magnificent, but nothing was more breathtaking than the bride's Oliver Theyskens gown, which even had it's own hotel room for the weekend. For more of the fabulous fete, peruse #nellandteddy.

Deck the Halls

Now that the holidays are officially around the corner (yes, I am already listening to Christmas music) it is time to deck the halls. I love the idea of a simple preserved boxwood wreath tied with a gorgeous black velvet ribbon. It is something that will still look appropriate hanging on your door long after the Christmas lights have been packed up and put away. 

It is also exciting that the holiday sales have begun even earlier this year! ..  Head to Ralph Lauren for up to 40% off or to J.CREW for 25% your entire purchase! Happy Shopping!

dCc Personal Shopping for the Holidays

Darlings, somehow I feel like I just woke up and suddenly it's already the middle of November. How did the Holidays sneak up on us like this? While this is most certainly my favorite time of year, it can be stressful with all the fetes, treats, and gifts to buy! 

I am here to help make picking out the perfect party dress or a present for a loved one a little easier as I am now booking up my shopping and styling services through the New Year. For more information and rates please email me at:

Pom Pom

To be honest, I am truly not much of a hat person. But, with the cold winter weather ahead, I could not help but stop to admire this perfect Fur Pom Pom Beanie. You better believe that if I did ever  decide to wear a hat, that it wold be this navy cashmere one from Inverni.

Rhum Raisins

I recently came across this beautiful French brand, Rhum Raisins, which is designed by two sisters. I adore how their pieces incorporate undeniably feminine and romantic elements such as bows, feathers, and tulle. These wedding gowns they designed are simply stunning.

Tory Burch Opening Shanghai

I could not get over how beautiful the decor was for the Tory Burch Opening Party in Shanghai. Held just this past week at the Penninsula Hotel, the dinner was perfectly decorated in blue and white. From the linens to the flower arrangements it was totally "Tory".

Runway to Real Way

I recently came across this stunning look from the Jenny Packham Fall 2013 Collection. A long silky skirt worn with a classic chunky knit is pure genius. I was so smitten that I thought I needed to find  way to re-create the look. I love the idea of making it slightly more casual (i.e. more appropriate for something other than a black tie affair) by pairing this RED Valentino Skirt with this chunky sweater , a sleek Charlotte Olympia clutch, and some fun baubles

The Perfect Puffer

The puffer vest is a standard item that brands offer every Fall/Holiday season. As I scoured the selection this year, I found that J.CREW truly hit the nail on the head with their Shiny Puffer Vest. It is as sleek and chic (as a puffer can be) and very reminiscent of the Moncler puffer vest, but for a fraction of the price!

dCc Outfit Obsession: Fall for Fur

I absolutely adore the gradual change to chillier Fall weather as I can now start layering with touches of fur. This outfit perfectly dresses down a gorgeous coat with a hint of heather grey and a crossbody bag. I'd love to re-create this look with this jacket, this perfect sweater, this scarf, and a classic quilted Chanel bag

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?

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!
