THE PERFECT SNEAKER

July 12, 2015


Being on my feet all day, especially during long shoot days, I’ve been finding it difficult to wear any kind of heel. Long gone are the days where I wore heels and dresses to work every day at my office job. On the flip side, I was finding it challenging to find a pair of sneakers that made me feel chic and put together. These shoes by Feit seem to be the perfect answer. They contain a slight platform, which I love because it adds a bit of height, and the leather molds to the shape of your feet. They do take a bit of breaking in; however, I have since successfully worn them without socks, which I can usually only do after years of breaking in shoes. It looks like the bi-color lace ups are no longer available; however, they are available in a slipper version, which is just as cute.


























FOR THE LOVE OF CERAMICS, PART DEUX

July 6, 2015


As I have mentioned before, I love ceramics and am building quite the collection. Along with this batch that I shot for TOAST, I recently acquired a bunch of pretty pieces from Virginia Sin and BTW Ceramics, two local Brooklyn artists. It amazes me how beautiful their ceramics are, which are made right in their Brooklyn studio. Virginia, Brooke and their work are truly an inspiration!


SUMMER ACCESSORIES

July 5, 2015


Since summer is officially here, in calendar and in temperature, I find myself reaching for the lightest-weighted items in my closet. As far as accessories are concerned, I packed up my heavier leather bags and brought out this lightweight leather bag. I purchased these sunnies last year, but they remain my absolute favorite and go to choice for sunglasses (year round!). Bring on the heat!



THE HAMPTONS

July 4, 2015


A ladies getaway to the Hamptons requires: a road trip with plenty of snacks, strolling down Main St, a delicious lunch and a sweet treat or two, a summer chill in the air, a peaceful beach with a view, as many laughs as possible and plenty of sunshine.




BEST BARBER NYC

July 3, 2015


One of the things I love about NYC is that it is filled with inspiring people pursuing their dreams. I recently met with Boswell Scot, who opened the new Hell’s Kitchen barber shop, Best Barber. This modern take on the beloved classic barber shop is a great neighborhood spot to pop in for a haircut, a  beard trim, a cup of coffee or even a glass of whiskey, and pleasant conversation with one of the barbers. It was a joy chatting with Boswell about his journey to opening his own shop and geeking out over the design details of the space. I opted for a cup of coffee, since we met in the early afternoon, but I will definitely opt for a taste of whiskey next time!
