Farewell to a Legend


I am heartbroken that yesterday the world lost not only an incredible designer but an incredible man. Oscar de la Renta was the epitome of taste and class, which he displayed through more than just his impeccable designs, but throughout his entire life. I have always wholeheartedly admired him as my favorite designer. He had a way of making women feel and look more beautiful than they ever could have imagined. 

The outpouring of love for this man after his passing is a true testament to who he was. The tribute to him on Vogue.Com is lovely, particularly Anna Wintour's personal account, which is unbelievably moving. You cannot get through it with dry eyes.   He will truly be missed, but never forgotten. He has left the world a more beautiful place.

Esme Vie in Paris







Just a few weeks ago one of my new favorite brands, Esme Vie, was showing their latest collection at the Raphael Hotel in Paris. The hotel, the place where Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy used to call home while they were in the 'city of light' (and the place where I stayed when I was there last year) was the perfect backdrop for the timeless collection with beautifully ornate floral details. Photographer, Jamie Beck so eloquently captured these images of the scene and the designer herself, Julia Voitenko.  Some gorgeous pieces from Esme Vie are available for purchase online here

Lovely Locusts on Hudson Wedding



Town & Country Weddings has always been my favorite place to find wedding inspiration. Thus, this Fall I was disappointed to see that they did not publish a separate Fall/Winter Weddings Issue. However, I was delighted to see that they did include a fabulous weddings insert in the latest November issue ..... just a little tip for all of you Town & Country Wedding fans like me!

Another incredible place for stunning wedding inspiration is the T&C website. That is where this week I discovered this beautiful affair in Statsburg, NY. I could not get over lovely lovely the setting was, particularly all the vines growing on the estate. Not to mention, they had funfetti cake (my favorite!)

Young Hollywood


I absolutely could not be a bigger fan of Claiborne Swanson Frank's incredible photography. Thus, I am delighted that she has just published her second book of portraits, Young Hollywood.  Each page is filled with gorgeous images of young starlets and the book is the perfect addition to any coffee table. For a glimpse into Claiborne's everyday life, I adore following her on Instagram

Valentin Yudashkin Spring 2015



Russian designer, Valentin Yudashkin is typically known for his ornate evening gowns. But, the daywear he showed at Paris Fashion Week this season absolutely blew me away. From the perfect pastel palette to the sleek and chic silhouettes, these looks had me swooning.

Pale Pink Perfection

With a dainty bow, 3/4 length sleeves, an open v-shape back, and in the perfect shade of pale pink .... this RED Valentino dress could not get any better. I truly don't think I could have designed something myself that I love more. Simply smitten.

Giambattista Valli Spring 2015



There has been a lot of buzz around Giambattista Valli after gorgeous Amal Alamuddin was spotted wearing this incredible number during her wedding weekend to George Clooney just a few weeks ago. I must say the brand's Spring 2015 Collection deserves just as much attention. I cannot get over the scallop and cut out details. Perfectly feminine yet modern.

Perfectly Peachy

You may remember when I blogged about Gabriela Perezutti Hearst's incredible wedding gown last year. Well, there is yet another thing in her life I am absolutely smitten with ... her home. It was recently featured here on Tales of Endearment and I must admit that my favorite room in her West Village brownstone the bedroom of her darling twin daughters. How perfect are those twin beds and that light fixture?

On the Streets of Paris Fashion Week




As always, during Paris Fashion Week each season there is an abundance of incredible street style. But as I was going through my Instagram feed these two women truly struck me. (Of course, they are both in the perfect shade of blush.) I was going gaga for that ostrich feather trimmed sweater and found that Milly has something similar if you want to recreate the look.

Isabel Marant Spring 2015 RTW






Every season, Isabel Marant inevitably designs the perfect collection for the undeniably cool girl. Her Spring 2015 RTW Collection was no different. I was particularly smitten with her use of fringe and frayed hems, which was inspired by a trip she took to Africa. Those skirts are absolute perfection.

TOD's Gommino Loafer






The iconic TOD's Gommino loafer is truly a timeless wardrobe staple. I have a couple of pairs and find that I always get the most wear out of them during the Fall season. The options with these loafers are endless and thus there are quite a few pairs I'd love to add to my wardrobe like these in printed calf hair or these in the prettiest of palest pink

Fabulous French Country Estate


Harper's Bazaar recently published an article featuring the gorgeous French Country estate of Parisian gallerist, Agnes Monplaisir. While the estate itself is utterly exquisite, it was this photograph of Agnes in her Oscar de la Renta gown that I was so stuck by I just had to share it with you all. To see the full piece and more images of the estate visit the Harper's website here
