Il Porticciolo

I am always delighted to discover beautiful new childrenswear and I am usually drawn to so many of the impeccable European brands. Thus, I was so happy to recently be introduced to Il Porticciolo, which is London based and curates traditional Italian children's brands {in addition to it's gorgeous own namesake knitwear collection}. You may have seen on instagram, but I am seriously swooning over their classic cashmere pieces as well as these knits with absolutely exquisite collars. The next time I am in London I cannot wait to visit their charming shop, but for those of us across the pond you are just in a luck as they are currently holding their winter sale online... Happy Shopping, darlings!

Midsummer Night's Dream


Chloe Richard's wedding to Lee Rubenstein was simply that ... a midsummer night's dream.  The Creative Director of M2M (Made to Measure) created an absolutely magical evening at her family's Southampton home. Every detail from the De Gournay invitations to her custom Giambiattista Valli gown was absolutely impeccable. After getting a glimpse of this wedding on Vogue.Com I have been dreaming about this day.{See the complete feature here}

Love Letters

 
All I truly ever want for Valentine's Day is a handwritten note or card {my husband knows this well by now!} and if you are looking for a card that is truly special look no further than Bernard Maisner Calligraphy. He creates the most stunning cards like this one that is more traditional or this "secrets' card that features tiny note cards with his beautiful calligraphy and one left blank for you to include your own sentiments to your valentine. What a truly lovely love letter.

Chic Slippers

To me comfort combined with effortless style is the ultimate luxury and Birdies are just that. The chic flat {that is secretly a slipper!} is absolutely irresistible. The San Francisco based brand has done an incredible job introducing luxe fabrications and darling details to their classic silhouettes and lately I am loving these and these. Your feet will look as good as they feel!

Spring 2019 Couture

Each season I seriously swoon over the Couture shows and the collections show in Paris this past week made me do just that. Of course as always I adored the Giambattista Valli and Chanel collections, but the highlight of the week {both literally and figuratively} was this Valentino dress. The color in combination with the silhouette with purely perfect.

Can't Get Enough of this Calendar

 Lately, I have been utterly inspired and absolutely enchanted by the work of Verry Robin & Co. The creative business consulting agency creates is absolutely impeccable at story telling and what I love most are the mood boards they put together.

Fiona Leahy Design


Lately, I have been seriously swooning over event designer, Fiona Leahy's fabulous fetes. London-based Leahy has truly become the fashion world's go-to party planner extraordinaire and there is absolutely no questioning why. Each detail of her tablescapes are utterly impeccable from her custom Christmas crackers to her signature velvet bow as a place card {complete with monogram}. After absolutely drooling over some of her latest events for Love Shack Fancy, Aerin,  and Moda Operandi ... I just had to share a little glimpse of her magical world with you.

AERIN x Janie & Jack

 
Aerin Lauder has long been one of my true style icons for her impeccable taste throughout all aspects of her life. Thus, I was absolutely delighted when she collaborated with Janie & Jack (a children's brand very near and dear to my heart) for an irresistible resort collection. The pieces are perfect for any of your upcoming travel and have been wonderful for the warmer weather we have been enjoying this week in Southern California. I cannot get enough of the darling swim (for girls and boys), seriously chic shifts, irresistible infant pieces, and absolutely adorable accessories! The collection also includes incredibly beautiful layette gifting items like these sweet sets and keepsakes perfect for any new babies in your life.  Truly loving this lovely limited edition collection.

Make Drying Off Dreamy

Maybe it's because new towels are actually on my Christmas list this year, but I have been on the hunt for the perfect set. Thus, I was delighted to come across the new brand, Weezie that has done just that. Their towels are luxurious, fluffy, and beautiful {yet actually dry you off!} for an incredible value. They are perfectly polished, thanks to gorgeous piping and perfectly personalized, thanks to endless monogram options {which you know I absolutely cannot resist}. They even make the most clever and adorable make-up towels that would make the perfect gift for a girlfriend {I'd like a pair too please, Santa}. Happy drying, darlings!

St. Frank x Mignonne Gavigan

I have long adored the work of jewelry brand, Mignonne Gavigan {particularly their statement earrings}. Thus, I was delighted to hear they had partnered with my dear friend's home decor brand, St. Frank. The collaboration is a natural fit for the two as they both share a deep appreciation for hand-crafted artisty and are inspired by artisan crafts and culture from around the globe. The collection features gorgeous pieces that combine intricate beading with a modern aesthetic {like these earrings I absolutely cannot get enough of!} They make the perfect statement pieces for your holiday parties or a unique gift for someone else.

Pamela Munson Resort Collection

Since Pamela Munson launched her luxury label just over a year and a half ago I have been continually obsessed with her seriously chic straw accessories. They exude the perfect understated elegance ready for any resort, pool, or beach {or if you are like me and use them in the city too!}. Her latest Resort Collection is absolutely my favorite yet {and I actually didn't think it was possible to adore her product more} as she has updated her classic silhouettes with sophisticated details like tortoise chains and croc embossed leather. I am seriously smitten with my Beatrix Bag.  In addition to the brand's website, you can shop the latest collection at Bergdorfs, Neiman Marcus, and Shopbop. Her bags make the perfect holiday gift for the girl who has everything!

California Dream


When I came across Moda Operandi Communications Director, Hayley Bloomindale's Santa Barbara wedding I could not help but swoon. Maybe it is because I grew up in Southern California, but this is truly one of the dreamiest weddings I have seen in a long time. It is absolutely the epitome of understated elegance. Hayley looked breathtaking in her Carolina Herrera gown designed by Wes Gordon, but for me it was her second dress (also designed by Wes) that took the cake! It was absolute perfection ... from the tiered silhouette and pearl edging to the incredible blue grosgrain bows, which perfectly matched her flower girls (my other favorite aspect of the day!). Could the wedding party have been any more darling? I absolutely adore those custom outfits by Spanish children's brand, La Oca Loca with the perfect touch of blue to match the dreamy flowers. A true California Dream. 
See a complete look at the day on Vogue.Com.

I recently discovered the most beautiful shop based in Australia, Daniel and Sofia, which carries the truly timeless childrenswear.  They carefully curate lovely European brands and their pieces are some of my favorite I have found for Grace's closet. I absolutely adore this Chloe dress, this Celena dress, and these darling nightgowns. Gorgeous clothing that will stand the test of time {and little ones running around!}

Dream Design Live


 I have long admired interior designer, Paloma Contreras' impeccable taste {and been a long time reader of her beautiful blog}. Thus, I was absolutely delighted when she came out with her book, Dream Design Live. I had the pleasure of finally meeting Paloma in person at an event celebrating her book last night and she is just as lovely as the spaces she designs. The book is extremely well done and I found incredible inspiration on every page. It would make a wonderful gift for any design lover in your life!
