While I tend to be the queen of prints, there’s something to be said for a truly classic, chic look using solid colors. I love the elegance and sophistication of a pure white dress. It is a clean look which is truly flattering on anyone. Neutral colors are always on trend for spring, and they remind me of a blank canvas. A beautiful, simple silhouette draws attention to a woman’s face, and also leaves room to play with accessories. The Robe Remerciement Dress by Sandro Paris fits the body perfectly, and has an interesting, sheer geometric detail. I also love the open detail in the back. Sandro Paris has some incredibly stunning pieces in their Spring collection.
On April 17th, between 6-8 p.m., I will be co-hosting a shopping event with Cara Kovacs at Cynthia Rowley’s Madison Avenue store in New York. About a week or so ago, I had a chance to try on several outfits at the boutique. One of my favorites was the Bonded Shift Dress, with a gorgeous floral print, that is both feminine and sophisticated.
I recently had the pleasure of attending accessories designer, Elaine Turner’s Store Opening Celebration on Madison Avenue, which is her first New York boutique. The party was hosted by Purses and Pursenalities, and 10% of the proceeds from the party went to the Madison Square Boys’ & Girls’ Club. The Texas based designer creates gorgeous handbags, shoes, and jewelry. Her collection showcases beautiful styles, full of color and textured fabrics. The moment I walked in the store, I understood the direction of the brand. The brilliant color and fun, flirty accessories targets the adventurous woman who expresses her zest for life through her personal style.
This Labor Day weekend felt like our own New York stay-cation, as my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary together. We went to The Standard Grill for a delicious brunch, Le Bain for drinks, and topped off our day with a fancy dinner at The Nomad. I highly recommend it, if you’ve never been. The food is absolutely delicious.
March is about that time of year when sun seems to shine a little brighter, and we anxiously await those first, glorious days of spring. For me, the excitement comes with the bright new colors and prints in the boutique windows. I am inspired by the latest styles of the upcoming season. This weekend, on a beautiful sunny Saturday, we felt that taste of spring. Central Park was bustling with people enjoying the beautiful weather. I decided to spend the afternoon in my beautiful city, exploring the park and people watching.
