Spring 2013, Tadashi Shoji. His design’s reflect the utmost in luxury and elegance, the much-anticipated collection continues to receive rave reviews. I am in love with the color palette and does anyone else notice the Audrey Hepburn iconic neckline?
Yesterday I received the massive Restoration Hardware catalog in the mail. I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but WOW a huge style change has taken place! For years I have specified their furniture for my clients; having a similar feel to styles at Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel it appealed to a wide market. Today, I am having difficulty getting any of my clients to see past the moody color schemes and monster size pieces of furniture. As a designer it is a very different story, the new line is pure eye candy. While school shopping at the mall the other day with my daughter, my heart actually skipped a beat when we walked by RH. I just stopped and staring into the windows, with that glazed look in my eye, like a kid looking into a candy store.

Recently my daughter attended pre-college at The Fashion Institute of Technology which is located in an eclectic neighborhood in NYC called Chelsea. If you haven’t experienced Chelsea before be sure to stop by some of these favorite spots, Chelsea Market and High Line Park. She commuted by train but I took the opportunity to meet her after class to fit some shopping in. We stumbled upon this fabulous thrift store by Housing Works and I wanted to share some of the finds. This place is unique because it combines a nice mix of furniture and designer clothing. Typically I find thrift stores seem to be stronger in one area than another but this place was a real find. What an easy way to give back and get some good stuff. Housing Works engages in relentless advocacy in pursuit of their mission to end the dual crises of AIDS and homelessness. Feel good shopping, I love it. Check it out!
Lets be honest, when it comes to accessorizing our homes this typically happens when we have nothing left in our budget and our patience is wearing thin.
