Houndstooth for Fall

Houndstooth: Coming to a city near you! I really love this look and it is perfect way to add a fashionable pop to your wardrobe. You will look more current instantly.  I like the pattern punked up a bit with moto boots and skinny jeans.

Family photos

I do our family photos super early before there is even a hint of autumn in the air.  I do this for many reasons but mostly to reduce stress around the holidays and so that I can bake and relax come December.  Here are some of our shots: photos by local Palisades photographer, Jalene:


I heart Pippa!

I think Pippa Middleton is divine! I am crazy for her hats. I love this pink and red combination ensemble for a wedding: via vogue:

House of Harlow: Pretty pieces at a fair price and some other favorites

I found these earrings on line at Bloomingdales while hunting accessories for a client.  Here are a few. The top two I pressed order on immediately.  $30? They will look great this fall with my cashmere sweaters and leather pants. A delicate pop on the ear goes a long way.
