Pajama Sunday | Springing Ahead

Pajama Sunday | Springing Ahead

Let it be Sunday!  It has been awhile since I wrote a Pajama Sunday post, hasn’t it? March turned out to be an eventful month. I am happy to be lounging in my bathrobe enjoying a cup of Earl Grey tea while listening to French Cafe music on Pandora. I have nothing on the agenda today (well, not a lot). Last Sunday, close friends and I celebrated their daughter’s 1st birthday at Alice’s Tea Cup on the Upper East Side. As I’m sure you can tell from the Mimosas shown above Alice’s Tea Cup is adult AND kid-friendly. From the mismatched vintage… Continue Reading »

How to Shop Luxury Consignment Boutiques

How to Shop Luxury Consignment Boutiques

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon Designer Revival (324 East 81st Street) while gallivanting around the Upper East Side. This little gem was one of the first luxury consignment shops in the city. In 2015, new owner Tiffany Keriakos bought a fresh and exciting new look to the boutique, all while adhering to the vision the boutique has instilled for many years: making women feel beautiful. I must admit I have been skeptical about shopping at second-hand boutiques in the past. My mind was forever changed  when I entered Michael’s for the first time a few years ago. Low and behold in front of me were designer clothing… Continue Reading »

Club Monaco Spring 2017

Club Monaco Spring 2017

Spring is in the air! It’s currently 68 degrees in New York City as I write this.  I figured there is no better day than today to share photos of the Club Monaco Spring 2017 collection I saw during New York Fashion Week. See now, buy now – this collection is available in stores as we speak. The collection’s colorful patterns and peasant details were inspired by the documentary Latcho Drom, which follows a family of travelers from Romania to India and pays homage to timeless travel celebrated through song and dance. Their journey influenced this season’s collection. The event took place at… Continue Reading »

New York Fashion Week Designers to Watch

New York Fashion Week Designers to Watch

Today wraps up New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 season. If you haven’t been following along on social media I will fill you in on the designers you should be on the look out for. The first designer I would suggest is Jonathan Simkhai. I have been seeing his collection in stores and online the past few seasons. His designs are meant to redefine the 21st century women’s wardrobe. His designs embody ease, confidence and modern versatility. I must say I have loved everything I see from him. I would love a piece of his textured clothing to land in my… Continue Reading »

Shop The City: Westfield World Trade Center

Shop The City: Westfield World Trade Center

The shopping mecca and tourist destination that is Westfield World Trade Center opened in August 2016. Of course I had to check it out having walked by the construction for years and years. Westfield World Trade Center was built to replace The Mall in One World Trade Center that was destroyed on 9/11. Developers were determined to rebuild and replace The Mall with a bigger and better shopping experience. The architecture is spacious and offers an upgraded shopping experience as opposed to an average shopping mall. The center is called the ‘Oculus’ which is smooth white marble, which is designed to make you feel… Continue Reading »

Pajama Sunday | Happy, Happy New Year!

Pajama Sunday | Happy, Happy New Year!

Ohh, hello 2017! 365 new days, 365 new chances. New beginnings always excite me. It’s another chance to do as I like to say “get it together”.  As the saying goes, “fall down seven times, get up eight”. Whether it’s a new season or calendar year I love the excuse a new beginning brings to challenge myself or change things up a bit. Are you setting any resolutions for yourself this year? My resolution for 2017 is to read more books. Those who know me know I am an avid reader to begin with, but I want to get into the habit of… Continue Reading »

Pajama Sunday | Grateful

Pajama Sunday | Grateful

“The days are long, but the years are short…” Can you believe we are approaching the end of another year?! I feel like it was yesterday that I was learning how to surf, yet here I am putting up my Christmas tree. This time of year is always a reflective time for me. On my walks around Central Park I have been trying to be more conscious of appreciating the little things during this Sunday morning ritual. Usually I am plowing through the park with my headphones on listening to a podcast making my way to my favorite coffee shop… Continue Reading »

The Golden Age of Retail

The Golden Age of Retail

The other day I had to go to Macy’s in Herald Square to replace a particular pair of jeans I bought two years ago. I cringe, absolutely cringe, when I think of going to Macy’s on 34th Street. As you can imagine this Manhattan flagship is quite the tourist destination. It has never been an enjoyable shopping experience for me so I stay away from it. However I can’t find my favorite pair Calvin Klein jeans any where else. I’ve even checked other locations out of state! One early Saturday morning I decided enough was enough. I am going to head… Continue Reading »

Pajama Sunday | Love Always Wins

Pajama Sunday | Love Always Wins

Phew, what a week! Needless to say there are all sorts of emotions happening across the United States right now. I must say I was in shock when I woke up on Wednesday. Complete shock. This blog is by no means a platform for delving into my political views and I respect those of others, but I must say what got me through this past week was seeing people speak up for what is fair and what is right. It gives me hope that for the next four years we will all look out for each other. Love always wins. This week marked… Continue Reading »

Pajama Sunday | New York Fashion Week

Pajama Sunday | New York Fashion Week

I am still digging my way out of fall fashion magazines (one more to go!) and catching up on the collections shown at New York Fashion Week. Since first attending NYFW in 2007 I have cut back on participating the circus that is Fashion Week. Thanks to technology we have instant access to all the shows. It takes care of the FMO and the pressure to run around the city for an entire week. Over the past few seasons when I have chosen to attend a show it’s usually a new or up & coming designer. One of the reasons is that… Continue Reading »
