As fashion weeks have concluded, and fashion’s biggest night of the year came clad in stained glass dresses and headwear inspired by the heavens, it’s clear that this season is about rebirthing Catholicism as we know it. We’re taking it’s enchantment, and it’s power and combining it with strong women and artful design. It’s a modern day Renaissance if you will, but how do we make sense of it all? Here are seven ways to incorporate it into your life.Read More
The Select FileS
Consider these Files a distillation of years, days, months and hours spent researching, searching, tagging, pinning, asking for information and giving recommendations. They are your resource for all things beauty and fashion, your online travel guides, social guides, holiday catalog, life coach, design consultant and anything else in your life that might benefit from an exchange of thoughts and information.
The world is big and life is a work in progress. And these are just my 7 cents.
What’s the first thing you think of when someone says Buenos Aires? Evita. The second? Tango. The third? Meat. Am I right? What’s probably NOT on the list of top 10 things you think of when you think of Buenos Aires is vegetables.Read More
About a year ago, Jennifer Fisher showed up at my house with a straw beach tote embroidered in red with the words "Fuck You and Your Hamptons House." Needless to say, I was obsessed. Cut to today and I'm thrilled to announce our very own exclusive collaboration with Poolside Bags, the brand that brings cheek to the beach and beyond.
Deciding which bag to choose and what we wanted it to say was next to impossible, so we didn't choose one. We chose three. And a hat. Because they are just that good. So please help us welcome the L'Enveloppe (SELECTIVE), Le Shortie (IF YOU KNOW YOU KNOW), Le Cercle (WHERE MY BEACHES AT) and L'Ombre Hat (TASTEMAKER) to the family. Bet you can't pick just one.

Mariska is a doer, and when she learned about the existence of the national backlog of untested rape kits in this country, she responded exactly how you would expect her to: With passion, commitment and the full expectation that we can end it. So she made a movie called I AM EVIDENCERead More
I have a thing for Nordic countries. I’m not sure why, and I didn’t even realize I did until I found myself spending two holidays in a row visiting three of them, all during the coldest and darkest periods of the year, making them that much more magical. Iceland was the first one we visited in December 2016 (you can read all about it here), and this past January we chose Stockholm and Copenhagen as our dose of Scandinavian beauty.Read More
With at least six more weeks of winter ahead of us, and temperatures dropping as fast as the stock market, it’s not just our faces that are suffering from a serious case of cold-air aging. Look down: how do your hands look? Dry? Chapped? I thought so.Read More
I didn't start traveling until I was in my 30s, and since that first trip to Paris, I haven't sat still for more than a couple of months at a time. Travel makes us better people, keeps us fresh and might even help change the narrative of what's happening in our world right now.Read More
New York can, at times, feel incredibly tedious. It's a big city, in a (relatively) small space, with a shit ton of people, and at this time of year when there's dirty slush everywhere and it's so cold you can't do anything except hunker down in your apartment, you kind of want to flee to somewhere "easier."Read More
I mean, I sort of assumed that in this day and age, everyone was just slathering themselves all the time, because, you know, global warming. Anyway, turns out that NOT everyone knows how important sunscreen is all year round.Read More
It's Labor Day Eve and as depressed as I am about summer ending, I'm equally as excited about Fall coming. But mostly because it means chunky sweaters and ankle boots (I don't know about you, but I am sick of keeping my pedicure up). SO her are just a few things I'm eyeing at the moment. Let me know what you're adding to your wardrobes for colder weather!
It's hard to fathom what's going on in Texas right now. With unprecedented flooding and more to come (by the time the storm dissipates it will have dumped 25 trillion gallons of rain on the state), everyone affected by Harvey needs help, and they need it fast. In fact, the National Weather Service has suggested this storm could be the worst the U.S. has ever seen. Here's how you can helpRead More
