Arthur Elgort Exhibition

    There is no better way to escape the dreary weather than to head to a museum or gallery.  I can't wait to visit the Stanley Wise Gallery soon to see the fabulous photographs of Arthur Elgort on display.  They range from the beginning of his career in 1970 to 2010.  Elgort has shot for some of the best fashion magazines so his subjects range from models and designers to even a few editors and other photographers.  Many of them are in motion or on the street instead of posed in a studio which "changed the face of fashion photography."  The best part is that they are also for sale!

Luxury Silk Flowers

    Spring is in the air, can you smell it?  After weeks and weeks of rain we finally got a sunny day in Sausalito.   Who knew the sun could feel so darn good...

    We just got an email from our silk flowers vendor today and we have to show you their new stuff.  It's gorgeous and it's a great way to bring spring inside your home all the time.

    Don't forget, silk flowers are kinda like perfume.  You CAN NOT get the cheap stuff! It has to be upscale or you better off not having nothing at all.

    Take a look at these...

    Aren't these beautiful?  We'll be loading them up in our luxury silk flowers section soon, so please check back in a couple of days...

Trench Warfare

    Tomorrw is April 1st and you know what that means, April showers that will hopefully bring May flowers.  It's actually already raining in New York today so most likely everyone will be pulling out their trench coats.  I still love my Gryphon trench but it's looking a little old and my Burberry trench tends to make me look like Meryl Streep in Kramer vs. Kramer above.  It seems like it might be time for a little shopping so I'm looking to these lovely ladies for inspiration.  Find of funny that the five year is chicest one!  Enjoy!

Tea Time

    The continued cold temperatures in New York have me drinking lots of tea to warm up.  Now you can not only drink your tea but you can wear it too.  Well, not the tea itself but the new Tea Fragrance Blends from Jo Malone. They were kind enough to send me the collection and I can't get enough of the Sweet Milk scent.  It smells like crème brûlée mixed with coconut suntan lotion.  So yummy! I also love the Earl Grey & Cucumber and the Assam & Grapefruit but the Sweet Lemon and Fresh Mint Leaf colognes also smell good enough to eat, I mean drink.  Get them before they are gone.  Little cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off sold separately.
