Map Envy

The map in the English architect-decorator Ben Pentreath’s London home made me think of a map of Paris that I waffled on a few years ago.

Microneedling

\

Last year when I posted that I was on the hunt for a miracle in a bottle to plump the lines around my mouth, a few readers left comments about microneedling. I asked my doctor about it, but he recommended fillers. Fillers are not my thing, so I’m revisiting microneedling. If anyone has tried a derma-roller, please let me know if it works.

Raffia Chic

When I spied this raffia and leather Hammock bag by Loewe my heart skipped a beat– so chic.

Also available here in small and large.

California Stripes

I have a bunch of Oriental rugs that I inherited from my mother and the one in the kitchen has seen better days. So, when my friend Mark D. Sikes offered me a rug from his new collection with Merida, I didn’t hesitate. A modern take on vintage dhurries, the California Stripes line is completely fab. I chose the one in red and natural and it instantly updated my kitchen–thanks, Mark!

‘The Amber Light’

Suzanne Koller on ITG

Into The Gloss just posted an interview with Suzanne Koller, fashion director of M Le Monde. I love getting a peek into the super-stylist’s Paris apartment and to read about her beauty must-haves.

Totes

Oversized bags were all over the runways and this Balenciaga tote (the small version and here is adorable, too) would up the cool factor considerably.

Vogue's 125th Anniversary

‘American Women’

To mark their 125th anniversary, Vogue commissioned a series of photographs of American women. The 15 portfolios that encompass American Women are diverse and captivating- a real tour de force. During NYFW I met one of the photographers included in the project, 18-year-old high school senior Bella Newman. Coincidentally, Bella is Jaime King’s niece- Jaime lived with me the summer she started modeling.

When Bella mentioned that she had done a story for Vogue on a Mennonite community near her home in Pennsylvania, I had no idea the spread would be this amazing– she’s certainly a talent to watch.
