Jeweler Cora Sheibani

London-based jewelry designer Cora Sheibani was not on my radar until I saw this profile in the current issue of Elle Decor. I love her rings, just one would make a fun statement.

Cookbook

‘Dinner With Georgia O’Keeffe’

Georgia O'Keefe Cookbook

I have yet to see the Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, however, I have pre-ordered this cookbook from Assouline—it will make a great hostess gift, too. Love that it’s spiral-bound and will lay flat on my counter.

A Pretty Plate

I’m aware that I’ve already posted on the Aerin x Williams Sonoma tabletop collaboration but, I’m so smitten with this simple scallop-edged plate, I had to put it up.

Layering Lesson

My dear friend and ex-office mate Amanda Ross Bacon is a layering pro—the La Double J dress over jeans is so good.

Beauty

Facial Oil

To my way of thinking, it feels counterintuitive to put oil on my face. However, I’ve been using a repair serum from my dermatologist and love the results–I’m a complete convert. I’ll bet Chanel’s Huile de Jasmin revitalizing facial oil is good, too.

Bottega Veneta

The Lauren Clutch

Lauren Hutton walked in the sensational Bottega Veneta SS17 show as part of the house’s 50th anniversary celebration. Her namesake clutch, a rerelease of the one she carried in the 1980 film “American Gigolo”, is available in brick red and the trench is in, too.

Last week I previewed the Bottega Veneta FW17 collection and was happy to see that the Lauren clutch will be produced in a range of colors for fall upper left.

This BV pouch is also good.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Galette

A galette is so easy and delicious. I’ve never made one in a cast-iron skillet— would be great for Easter lunch.

British Vogue

‘Channel Surf’

Amber Valletta looks gorgeous on British Vogue‘s May cover and the accompanying story makes me yearn for summer. One of my all-time favorite models, I’m happy to see Amber in a number of fantastic editorials recently.

On My Mind

Buyer’s Relief

Many of us have experienced buyer’s remorse—the sting felt after making a regrettable purchase. I try very hard to never feel that sting and sometimes deliberate on an item for so long that it sells out before I commit. But, what about the reverse? I’ll coin it buyer’s relief—the feeling I get when I’ve had my heart set on an expensive item that, in the end, doesn’t suit me. The relief is the $$$$ I didn’t waste on something I would only wear out of guilt.

This happened recently with the above Miu Miu coat. I was smitten the second it hit the runway last fall and immediately put it on my spring wish-list. As I added other items to said list, I was mindful that I already had the pricey coat on there. When I got the call that it was in, I raced over to try it on. As the SA pulled it out my heart sank because, as gorgeous as it was, I knew the color would not be good on me. Disappointed? Yes. Relieved, too.

It Item

Initially Yours

The large Céline initial pendants from the FW17 collection above are on my list–they are very chic. The Monica Vinader rose gold pendants below are good graduation and birthday presents, especially for my girls’ friends.
