Smitten with St. Frank

I am absolutely smitten with the incredible framed handmade textiles company, St. Frank, that my dear friend, Christina Bryant, founded this Fall. She launched this concept because she saw a hole in the marketplace and wanted to find a way to make the beautiful art she found in isolated communities around the world accessible. St. Frank provides a truly unique art option for the chic and cultivated collector as they source gorgeous textiles created by artisans and custom frame them. Their pieces truly make an impact in any room. What is even more amazing is that the company is not only focused on providing magnificent home decor, but also places a huge importance on social responsibility by improving economic independence for artisans around the world. What a win - win! 

Today, I am delighted to be a Tastemaker on the St. Frank website. Look here to see the way I have paired one of their beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces with the bar area in my dining room!

Stunning Carolina Herrera Creation

I love how clean and modern, yet classic this San Francisco wedding is. Held at the historic Flood Mansion, the day was lovely, but nothing was as exquisite as the bride's Carolina Herrera gown. She first spotted it in an issue of Town & Country and from that moment it was truly love at first sight.

Can't Get Enough of the Classics

I can never get enough of classic pieces I know I will have in my wardrobe forever like my Cartier watch or Chanel ballet flats. They are more than worth their investment if you calculate their "price per wear". It is always good to remind yourself to continue building these classic pieces in your wardrobe. What are some of the classics in your closet you can't live without?
