Stumbling upon these fantastically styled photos of Wallpaper editor J.J. Martin on Tales of Endearment made my morning. While my own personal style is more subdued, I so admire those that can take things up a notch in the color and pattern department. J.J.’s life in Milan sounds pretty spectacular — she recently threw herself a black tie 40th birthday party at a villa in Rome and her Italian husband loves to by her vintage jewels. See more of her amazing abode here.
I was thrilled to learn this morning that West Elm has collaborated with one of my favorite NYC fashion designers, Steven Alan. The 100% handcrafted collection is just as gorgeous as his highly coveted apparel. I’ve already added the tables and striped bedding to my wish list! Below, some more of the collection highlights.
Todd Selby published photos of artist John Derian’s New York City apartment today and they are as handsome as can be. His boutiques here in Manhattan will always be a favorite — I did most of my Christmas shopping there this year. See all the photos on The Selby. Below, some John Derian decoupage favorites.
I love when a brand we’ve grown up with surprises us and recently LOFT has done just that. I was thrilled to stumble upon their Lounge collection — it’s full of comfy classics that have a bit of edge. It looks like something you’d find from a higher end line with a higher end price tag. One of each, please.

I love this old Vogue Paris editorial featuring a flurry of Chanel (and Louis Vuitton and Moschino and YSL…) on the streets in Paris. The stylist did a fantastic job of channeling Coco’s iconic style. Black, white, gold, and pearls — sign me up.
How I’d get the look…
