Clever Clasps

I’m a big fan of big multi-strand necklaces with beautiful clasps so it’s no surprise these beauties on Shopbop caught my eye. After all, spring simply begs for pearls, turquoise, and gold. I’m torn between the first and the last…equally timeless, equally chic. You?

Alex Katz’ Soho Studio

Architectural Digest recently published photos of painter Alex Katz’ Soho studio and the images are just lovely. I’m a huge admirer of Katz’ work (especially his paintings of his beautiful wife and muse, Ada) and own several of his books. Someday perhaps I’ll be in a position to buy one…after all, a girl can dream!

Snakeskin Chic

I wear a lot of black so when it comes to my feet I’m all for making a colorful statement. These snakeskin flats on Shopbop from Vera Wang’s Lavender Label are so chic it hurts. Plus they have the perfect spring color palette (bring on the brights!). Tell me, are you a yellow, pink, or orange kinda gal?

Alfred becomes famous…

Oh. My. Goodness. Remember this silly picture of my little Alfred? Well, I came home tonight to discover that Inslee (an incredibly talented illustrator whose work I just adore!) was inspired to paint my baby boy! Doesn’t he look dashing?! I keep telling him he’s famous, but he just tilts his head and looks puzzled (such a humble pup…). Thank you, Inslee!!!
