winter whites fit for a new year's fete

Winter whites + a dose of sparkle is the best recipe for that desirable balance of playful sophistication that holiday fetes call for. What better way to welcome the new year! I especially adore this A-line embellished dress / sparkly clutch / kate spade keds / erickson beamon earrings / luxeffects nail polish / mini lomography camera / lulu frost bracelet (on sale!) / sofia champagne 


pieces of december

Charming neighborhood stoops decked in holly, a jaunt upstate to the Adirondacks with my family
and Zelda for Christmas, and drinks at Bemelmans Bar... reason 1000000 why I love New York.
Hope you all are having a fun + peaceful holiday!

Making A List: Part Two


Making a list: Part one

I'm what you might call a last-minute-shopper... Some gifts at the top of my holiday shopping list, plus a few goodies I'm eyeing for myself:
Diana Vreeland: Memos (perfect for all your girlfriends) / bow studs / pink + gold watch / swiss dot robe (to lounge around the house all weekend) / gold studded black mocs / neon tassel earrings (a stocking stuffer with pizzazz!) / dog tote (ideal for popping around town with the pup!) / Beyoncé (gift it to your coworkers and make the office a happier place!) / gold studded cashmere lined gloves / Avedon: fashion / bronze pouf / new york needlepoint pillow / 36 Hours U.S. regional guides (for your spontaneous friends) / navy beanie
