2015 Hampton Designer Showhouse: Part II

Today I’m back with Part II of the Hampton Designer Showhouse, held this year in a “modern barn”-style home located on a winding, woodsy road in Bridgehampton. The house features a great room, master bedroom with terrace overlooking a pool, two walk-in closets, and so much more. Here are my favorites from the second … Read more ››

2015 Hampton Designer Showhouse Part I

The other day my Mom and I headed to Bridgehampton to check out the 2015 Hampton Designer Showhouse. Each year a select group of designers decorate a large Hamptons house, with proceeds benefitting Southampton Hospital. This year the house definitely did not disappoint – as always, it was full of coastal accents, cozy linen … Read more ››

Outfit: Late Summer Dress

I recently got this blue dress at a little boutique in Nolita called Baby Blue Line, and I’m in love with it! Usually I avoid little boutiques because they’re often incredibly overpriced and usually I don’t even love the clothes, but something in the window of this shop caught my … Read more ››

NYC Guide: Oddfellows Ice Cream Co.

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Oddfellows’ East Village scoop shop, and it was such a cute place. Oddfellows Ice Cream started out in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where their flagship shop is still based, and where they serve up cones filled with a variety of creative flavors like Extra Virgin Olive Oil, … Read more ››

A Sweet Treat: Birthday Cake Bonbons

If there are two (random, unrelated) things that I love in this world, it’s birthday cake, and splatter paint. Leave it to Susanna Yoon, the genius pastry chef at Stick With Me Sweets, to find a way to bring these two elements together – thus creating a treat so beautiful … Read more ››

Black and White

1 – I’ve long been a fan of Land of Nod’s gold geometric lamp (which I wrote about here)…I even got my sister to buy it for her apartment and it’s super nice in person. Recently while perusing the Land of Nod site I came across this black version and I’m now … Read more ››

NYC Guide: Gansevoort Market

I typically don’t hang out in the Meatpacking District since it consists mostly of trendy nightclubs (not my scene) and expensive, upscale designer boutiques (not my scene either, though I wish it were). However, a few months back I was wandering the area while taking a photo walk with Joanne Pio, … Read more ››

Lookalike for Less: Lace Up Flats

Ever since seeing these Aquazzura lace-up flats on various blogs and fashionistas over the last few months, I’d gotten to coveting a pair like nobody’s business. I just love them, but the price tag of $675 is quite the turnoff. A lot of companies have made lookalikes but I think my … Read more ››

Tea at the Plaza Hotel + Everybody Rise Book Event

Recently I was lucky enough to attend an event in celebration of the fantastic new book Everybody Rise, written by New York Times reporter Stephanie Clifford. The activities started with blowouts at Drybar (so fun), followed by discussing the book with the author over tea at the Plaza Hotel! It was a fantastic event and such a … Read more ››

Designer I Love: Lilly Bunn

Recently I became familiar with the work of New York City based designer Lilly Bunn, and I love her traditional meets funky aesthetic. Lilly started out as a fashion editor at Town and Country and launched her own design firm in 2009 after working for McMillen, Inc. She uses a mix of bright … Read more ››
