Field Trip


Last Monday I had lunch in Sag Harbor with friends. It was great to be in the Hamptons right before Memorial Day weekend; everything was open, and no crowds. After lunch, we popped into MONC Xlll, a shop owned by my old friend Natasha Esch. Once president of Wilhelmina Models, and then a stint as an interior designer in L.A., Natasha now lives out east with her husband and children. MONC Xlll is full of antique and vintage furniture, gorgeous homeware, and my favorite Cire Trudon candles. A perfect rainy day destination.
