I live and die for my black handbag, I wear it with everything and carry it everywhere, short of a black tie event. Around this time of year, I am always anxious for a change in handbag scenery. This fleshy, peachy color that everyone deems natural, looks and feels fresh for summer, while the shapes are like small sculptures hanging from your shoulder.

In New York, we are having the first real Spring in years, and I can’t get enough of it. I truly believe that Fall and Spring are the seasons when you get the most out of your wardrobe. You can wear boots with dresses, sandals with jeans and your entire collection of lightweight jackets. The past few weeks were filled with tons of inspiration gathering for an upcoming punk inspired photo shoot, dining outside and picnics in the park.

La Garconne’s look book entitled The Opening Act is my dream summer wardrobe! Made up entirely of black and white, with just the right amount of skin peaking through sheers and cutouts.
Today I am heading over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to find some inspiration for a Punk themed photo shoot I am styling next week. Afterwards, I’m heading over to the Reiss store for a few cocktails and some summer shopping. If you are in the area, you should join me!

It’s that time again! The time to shop for kitchen window planters for our herb garden. If you remember last year, I dreamt of Mod Pots, but they ended up being too small. So, this year I am leaning more towards planters that have a rustic contemporary feel in neutral, organic colors.

If you remember my March Design, then you are probably sensing a pattern. I’ve been experimenting with new shapes and a new approach to design. Usually, I sketch the style I want to make, then I choose the fabric and draft a pattern. My design process is more organic now, by choosing only my fabric, I sit with my dress form and drape, letting the fabric guide me. Some days are all about trial and error, but when making this dress, it took form right away.
