I often get so caught up in the excitement of launching a new issue I fail to mention it’s live here on my dear blog! We’ve also launched a Matchbook boutique (so exciting!) that allows you to favorite product and search by color/story/etc. Sign up to fill out your very own Matchbook questionnaire (here is mine!) and start adding to your wish list. Let me know when your questionnaire’s complete and I’ll be sure to take a look – reading everyone’s clever answers has been such fun! :)
“I still believed in possibilities then, still had the sense, so peculiar to New York, that something extraordinary would happen any minute, any day, any month.” -Joan Didion
This morning it dawned on me I hadn’t shared a New York update since September! A few fall highlights – seeing my little brother in Pace’s performance of Spring Awakening, a quiet evening exploring the Met, a scrumptious brunch at Jojo with Iva, gin and tonics at the Ritz, the beautiful voices of the Saint Thomas Church boys choir, bouquets of bodega tulips, bowling at Brooklyn Bowl with Morris Adjmi Architects, a perfect French 75 at The Odeon, neighborhood strolls with Alfred, breakfast at Pastis with dear friends (looking at you Cassie, Ash, Dru, and Ellie), weeknight spaghetti dinners at E.A.T. where we’re always the youngest patrons, the Picasso exhibit at the Guggenheim, seeing Al Pacino in Glengarry Glen Ross, hanging out in Wayne Pate’s ridiculously awesome Park Slope studio (have I mentioned I love my job?), brunch in Harlem at The 5 and Diamond with Nicole and Ellie, and so much more. I didn’t think it possible, but as each day passes I only feel more grateful to be in the city that never sleeps. Here’s to adventures ahead…!
Thanks to Elle Decor for featuring my velvet jewelry stand in a recent trend piece. Baubles, don’t you love ’em?
I always enjoy reading the Tory Burch blog for occasional glimpses at the designer’s home and table. The latest purple and orange palette is envy-inducing to say the least. What I would give for monogrammed linens, rock crystal votives, and that skirt’s marvelous bullion fringe…!
