favorite flats: repetto

One of my favorite stores in Paris is Repetto. Their wheels of colorful ballet shoes always made me smile. They have supplied many a famous ballerinas with their footwear, but if you aren’t a professional don’t be dismayed, for they have a gorgeous pair of ballet flats for you as well. Which color would you…

summer bikes

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Summer has definitely hit the city. It is hot and the parks were packed this past weekend. I love walking everywhere in the summer as the subways can get quite toasty, but I have also concluded that the perfect transportation for the summer is a bike. I already…

a sailor for me, and a sailor for you

I was starting to feel a little homesick this week as tons of my friends are headed home for the long weekend, and you can’t exactly have a big Memorial Day BBQ in NYC. Yet I immediately felt better when I woke up to a text this morning from my lovely friend Ali saying it was fleet…

daisy and gatsby: a love affair to remember

The tarnished love affair of young Daisy and the mysterious Mr. Gatsby was one romance I did not mind reading about in school. I remember vividly picturing the novel in my mind, with their two houses across the lake from each other, and Daisy just driving along that road…sigh. I cannot wait to see it alive on…

norma kamali

I’m currently obsessed with every bikini by Norma Kamali. I think they would all pair perfectly with a large floppy hat and big sunnies. I see many a beach days in my future… i LOVE the bright color love the sexy halter top um…if i was only tan enough to pull this off retro chic…i…

floor length

I must admit, I love a pretty, floor length gown. I’m a bit jealous I can’t wear them in my every day life. Why are floor length skirts and dresses over the top for the office?! I just don’t get it… Why don’t people still host balls like they do in Downtown Abbey? I think…

a trip down travel lane

Summer vacays are one of my fondest memories from childhood. My family was all about the road trips. Oh the long hours spent in the car with the whole family – so priceless, and folding down all the seats in the suburban so that you could set up a small box TV in order to play…

currently reading

I just started reading a new book called How to Love an American Man. My friend Allyce recommended it to me and so far so good! I think books are great stress relievers. I can easily get lost reading a book all day long. They take you into another world – transporting myself in 3, 2,…

cocktail time

Can you handle whiskey? Article on women and whisky here. My fave whisky drink is found at Mulberry Project – I don’t know what it’s called, but it had ginger in it and tasted like a gingerbread man!  Other fave is a Moscow Mule – head to Raines Law Room – and find a recipe, plus other…
