Pop Color Dress

Walking around New York City you find the most amazing hidden gems.  A few of my favorite blogs talk about the lost streets, buildings and underground tunnels in NYC (see Forgotten-NY).  I’m always on the hunt for the interesting in my neighborhood.

After shooting one day in the Washington Mews behind my mother-in-law’s house, it got me to thinking, what other beautiful back streets are there in NYC.  I did a bit of research and found Patchin Place.  Once home to E.E. Cummings and John Reed, this quaint street is full of character.  My photographer Shane and I decided to check it out for ourselves this weekend.  I was excited to see when I arrived that the gas lamp at the end of the street is still there.  This beautiful classic street lamp is one of the last gas lamps left in NYC that is still serviced by the city.

On this gorgeous Saturday I was prepped and ready for a cocktail party that my husband and I were hosting that night.  I absolutely love hosting events and am always on the hunt for a great cocktail party dress.  This little number from Landero via  Rent The Runway was perfect for a fun evening at home with friends.  I love the asymmetrical cape back detail, white zipper and pop color palette.  I paired it with one of my favorite pairs of Charlotte Olympia heels, a simple leather choker and I was all set.

If you’re in the mood to host a little soiree at your place this week I will leave you with this little bit of advice.  After many years of hosting in my apartment I’ve come to find that it gets a bit tiresome to mix cocktails all evening.  Instead I purchased a bell jar from Fishs Eddy (similar here) and make a large batch cocktail for the evening.  I’ve been in the mood for gin lately and mixed up the below concoction that turned out perfectly.  Needless to say, there was not a drop left by the end of the evening.

Thyme After Tyme Cocktail (Multiplied by 60 for bell jar with a full handle of gin)


  • 1 ½ oz. gin
  • 1 oz. thyme-infused honey (boil honey, add sprigs of thyme, and let steep for 15 minutes) (I used about 15 oz honey)
  • ½ oz. lemon juice
  • 4 slices cucumber (for large batch I put the cucumber in my Vitamix)
  • 2 oz. ginger beer
  • cucumber slices
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme


Add cucumber, lemon juice, and thyme-infused honey into a shaker and muddle. Add gin and a generous amount of ice. Shake vigorously and then strain into an ice filled glass. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with cucumber slices and fresh thyme leaves.

Spring Romper

As the weather warms and those legs that haven’t seen sunlight find themselves revealed, it’s time to take a refresh.  This cheeky little spring romper number from Marissa Webb immediately caught my eye.  I loved the lapel neckline, belted waist and short hemline.  Though I loved the short-short look, my poor legs hadn’t seen the sun for a bit.  I remedied that problem with a touch of Prtty Peaushun.  It added the perfect touch of color so that my legs wouldn’t blind you.

I added a few fun accessories to finish the look.  My favorite Olympia Le-Tan Clutch, these aaaaammmmmazing Tuleste feather earrings, and a great Valentino rockstud heel.  Happy spring friends!

Brunch Style


Off in a land far, far away, ok, Brooklyn, I had the perfect Saturday brunch with one of my favorite people.  She’s one of my closest, most stylish friends: Liz Teich of TheBrooklynStylist.com.  I was introduced to something EVERYONE is currently obsessed with and the possible replacement to my coffee addiction, the matcha latte at Cafe Pedlar.  I’ve been drinking matcha for the last 6 years thanks to my green tea addicted husband, but never like this.  Liz introduced me to something far creamier, and delicious, with a decent helping of caffeine.

Liz and I happen to think alike and showed up to brunch in hilariously twinning outfits as you can see here.  Hey, great minds think alike. We both are loving the layered vest look right now and took it in 2 different directions. My brunch style is a layered look featuring this C/MEO Collective vest with an off the shoulder top.  I am completely obsessed with this vest right now.  The extreme high low hem paired well with an off the shoulder top (which we all seem to be in love with right now).  The extreme high low hem called for a pant that elongated the leg and brought your eye down the silhouette.  As icing on the cake I added this emoji inspired Any Hindmarch bag and an armful of decadent gold jewelry.

What brought us together on this fine Saturday morning, other than brunch, laughter, and good times was the amazing new offering from Rent The Runway.  I know, I’m not wearing a ball gown or shmancy cocktail dress.  Well Rent The Runway is so much more now.  They are offering ladies the ability to expand their everyday closet into the endless closet from Sex And The City.  Well, kinda.

Rent The Runway now has an awesome selection of ready to wear separates, bags, and accessories from designers like Marissa Webb, Tibi, and Milly.  And better yet, they are offering a new service called UNLIMITED.  This new service gives you the ability to rent unlimited items (3 at a time) for a flat rate every month.  For those who don’t have unlimited budgets for new clothes and unlimited closet space, this is the cure for your summer wardrobe shopping list.

So the question this season isn’t, what are you going to invest in?  It’s what new designers are you going to try, what silhouettes you’re going to rock on your way to the office and what great new bag you’re going to take out for brunch with your ladies.
