Father’s Day is Sunday, June 19 so I thought it’d be nice to round up some great gift ideas for daddy dearest (how brilliant is the card above?). My dad just retired after 35 years as a public defender and I couldn’t be more proud. This year I have to think of something fun he can enjoy in his retirement! I hope these ideas help you on your Father’s Day gift search! READ POST

My apologies for disappearing late last week. We were in New York…getting married! My man and I tied the knot at city hall on Friday and our families flew in from California and London to help celebrate. Even 84-year-old Grandma Rita made the trip! Thursday night we had a delicious dinner in the wine room at Freeman’s (hearing Rita imitate my husband’s English accent was priceless…) and after the Friday morning ceremony we skipped to The Odeon for a champagne brunch. It was all so simple and easy and fun—we wouldn’t have changed a thing. I’ll be sure to share a few of the professional photos when they arrive. In the meantime, my wedding shoes.

CeCe Thompson in House Beautiful

I was thrilled to see CeCe Thompson’s gorgeous Upper East Side apartment featured in House Beautiful’s June issue. We shot the apartment for Matchbook years ago and the place has become even more sophisticated since. CeCe is an absolute doll and works for interior design icon Bunny Williams. I love the living room’s lucite armchair and classical bust, not to mention the Mast Brothers chocolate place cards on her dining table…I have to try that!
