“Style is like a symphony. Every wardrobe piece is a note, and the rhythm is your essence. Let it play!” By Elle
I had a wonderful weekend in the Hamptons two weeks ago. The highlight was dinner at Baron's Cove in Sag Harbor with my family. The water view was calming, the food was fresh, locally sourced and delish; best of all- I felt as though I were a million miles away from the city!
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House is an inspiring amalgam of the best design talent internationally . It is such a enriching experience to see all of the work, displayed to perfection in the UES of Manhattan. Plus, proceeds go to a great children's cause. If you can't get there physically, you can visit their website. It is an annual event that I adore going to! XX, Elle
A few weeks ago, I attended a fabulous charity luncheon to help the fight against animal abuse. The #Phlippine Animal Guardian For Human Societies, Inc. hosted an informative talk on this heart wrenching subject. Credit to #Korina Sanchez-Roxas, and #The foundation for Filipino Artists for their excellent work protecting our four legged friends. The stark darkness of the subject was muted, by the brilliant beauty of the #Rotunda, at the storied Pierre Hotel in Manhattan.
Exploring and defining the sleeve-treatment trend, we find that this is a classic focus and not necessarily a summer trend. Choose the flutter sleeve, the furry sleeve, the bell sleeve : it is all there to add gorgeous detail. Dressing the shoulder is a forever endeavor, and adding drama with a sleeve detailing is a great styling option.
I hope everyone is enjoying true summer weather, at last. Here are some snaps of my Memorial Day weekend, and a bit from the following days. I enjoyed the sweetest, beachfront weather, and great company with friends and family!

In this post I encourage what Refinery29 calls "bag twinning". It is a style habit of mine for almost 30 years, Wear two bags at a time, keeping one close . This small bag, Chanel, in my case, is what holds my credit cards, and keys- the essentials. Other items go in the larger bag. Never fumble for keys in the abyss of a large bag again. You can also avoid pickpocketing, and now can feel good about buying a few more bags! :)
