Dress it up or dress it down, the velvet trend is in full force this season and I'm loving it! This leopard velvet bag, these velvet jeans and this amazing little clutch are already mine...and now I'm looking to add some more of these sumptuous, tactile fashionable finds to my closet.

Home Tour: NYC's Old World Charm

I was excited to see this apartment featured in the November issue of Elle Decor. I love a classic pre-war New York City apartment, and I've been enamored with the Apthorp, (a legendary building on New York's upper west side) for years!

Composer Jonathan Sheffer recently purchased a unit in the famed Apthorp and brought in his friend designer/architect Robert Couturier, to help re-imagine this beautiful apartment. The results are fantastic! Be sure to check out the full article in Elle Decor if you love reading about the history of these old buildings as much as I do.

Weekend Wrap Up

Happy Friday the 13th! This week kicked my butt. Back from a whirlwind 48 hour trip to Chicago to look at a college for my oldest daughter, I'm now coming down with a cold. The stress involved in this hunt for the "perfect school" is maddening... I'm trying my best not to get sucked into all this manufactured drama, but it's draining to say the least.

On a much lighter note...

Boot Camp

The range of boot styles available this fall is amazing. My favorites include chic classics like biker, lug soles and western booties. Some newer ideas catching my eye are colorful velvet booties (seen above), studded details and snug "sock-like" styles

Since boots last for several seasons, I'm always willing to invest in a great looking new pair (or two). I tend to favor the shorter, ankle boot varieties. After an extensive search, these are the boots I'm loving this season...

How fabulous is this pink and green bathroom from Poppy Delevingne's London home in Architectural Digest?! London based designer Joanna Plant, helped Poppy source some great finds throughout her charming home - including the quirky mirrored lightning art below (which I'm obsessed with) and that amazing pink headboard. So many fun little details, every time I glance at these rooms I discover something new to love!
