Radcliffe Holiday Show

Radcliffe Jewelers had their holiday show this month. Both locations were buzzing with vendors and happy shoppers.
It was fun seeing new lines like these bangles from Halcyon Days.  
I couldn't help but play dress up and see which estate bag went with my Devon Baer ruffle top.
Ivanka Trump had some spectacular tassel pieces.

Of course there were plenty of diamonds and these emerald & diamond drops were calling (screaming) my name.

I am thrilled to announce that I have taken a job with Radcliffe Jewelers so be prepared for lots of posts on handbags, jewelry and an influx of Birkin bags on Instagram.

Elbow-Patch Sweater

When J.Crew's Elbow-Patch sweater was a new arrival my size sold out in a matter of days. There was a sweater re-up so I didn't take any chances and ordered both an XS and an XXS. I have never worn an XXS before but just last week I received the Cambridge Cable in my usual XS and it was way too big. It's funny because I wear an S in the Tippi sweater. Have you found J.Crew's sizes to be inconsistent lately?

Wedding Guest Mat

On our wedding day, I put out a mat for guests to sign. It was so much fun seeing everyone's signatures the day after the wedding. The framed mat hangs in our kitchen as a reminder of 5-11-13.

Kara Ross Show Room

I had the pleasure of going to the Kara Ross show room and meeting the fabulous Kara Ross when I was in NYC. She was just as beautiful as her designs and took time out of her busy day to sit down and chat.

In 2003 she founded the company Kara Ross, which has rapidly grown from its origins in fine jewelry and is known for its bold and unique use of exotic skins and gemstones across several jewelry lines, handbags, and belts. The newest addition to the brand is the Kara Ross Gemstone Collection which debuted in fall 2010.

Congratulations on the 655 Madison Avenue store opening this week. It looks absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to visit!

Beauty at Home

Aerin Lauder's new book, Beauty at Homeis a must have and would make a wonderful gift. I first saw it in the book section at Bergdorf's. It's filled with lovely images of her homes, old family photos, collections of blue & white, rich textiles and flowers. It's safe to say my girl crush has reached a whole new level.

Autumn in NYC

We had a long weekend filled with quality mother-daughter time and took glorious walks in Central Park.
Gotham Salad at BG Restaurant

While visiting a friend, I realized that Mood Fabrics was only a few floors down so I checked it out and pretended like I was on Project Runway.

There is something truly magical about Bergdorf Goodman's windows at night. They were celebrating Giorgio Armani’s 35th anniversary and featured iconic red carpet looks in the windows.

It was a pretty casual trip for the most part and I sported my new Ruffle-Collar Shirt and quilted Barbour.
