‘The Golden Hour’

Forget the adage about not wearing white before Memorial Day, I wear it all year round–and nothing looks better with white than gold jewelry. These pendants (Cartier, Aurelie Bidermann, and Verdura) are crazy chic.

Grace By Grace Coddington

Grace Coddington’s perfume launched at the end of April and I’m eager to try it. Grace teamed up with Comme des Garcons to develop the rose-scented fragrance and I’m sure it’s perfection.

Oscar de la Renta 2017 Resort

Day Dresses

April and May are always busy, but this spring has been particularly event-filled thanks to Shonda Rhimes’ inspirational book, “Year of Yes”.  I took Ms. Rhimes’ advice and accepted every invitation that came in, save two. It was a challenging, yet rewarding, exercise and I’m glad I did it—but I ran through all of my good dresses.

Thankfully, the Oscar de la Renta 2017 Resort collection is packed with amazing day dresses—I’m going to put my name down for two of the ones, above.

Summer Reds

Memorial Day may be the unofficial start of summer but, for me, the French Open is the opening act of my favorite season.

My stepfather was a television producer, primarily covering tennis. I grew up going to all the Grand Slam tournaments, except the French Open. Not until I was in college (and got out mid May) did I get to see matches on the red clay courts at Roland Garros. The color of Nantucket reds, I felt right at home.

Sadly, Roger Federer withdrew from the tournament, which begins tomorrow.

Now Playing

There are two movies that I’m dying to see this weekend—’A Bigger Splash’, for the Dior wardrobe, and ‘Love & Friendship’, because I adore Whit Stillman’s films.  Woody Allen’s ‘Café Society’ will be out in July.

Navy Days

Spring + navy = a combo made in heaven. I’ve pulled out my dark denim as an alternative to black and I still love (and wear with everything) the Gucci block-heel pumps.

Oh, happy day!  There’s a new Richard Russo novel out—a sequel to one of his best, no less. ‘Everybody’s Fool’ will be my first beach read.

The New Céline Bag

Moments after Céline released the Pre-Fall images, the campaign dropped. This bag, tucked up under the arm (and here), has my name on it.

Cherry Red

A few months ago, I posted on the Gucci slide in burgundy and my friend Mary has been searching for a pair ever since (to no avail). Maybe she’ll like them in bright red for summer.

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2016


Proenza Schouler just released images of their Pre-Fall collection. Although presented in January, the designers delayed sharing the looks until closer to the delivery date. I’m digging the studs on all the footwear.

After trying a number of pricey lipsticks, I’ve gone back to my go-to by MAC. Mixed with a little lip balm, Hue is my favorite summer shade.
