    structured houndstooth x leather wrap belt

    October 8, 2014

    This Twinkle by Wenlan (how cute is the name btw?!) dress has so many dazzling chic details that I wish many of my other wardrobe pieces would have too. The pipes traveling down the bodice are chichi; the structured shoulders aren’t overly-dramatic; the tulip skirt comes with side pockets –


    jumpsuit re-wrapped

      You’ve heard of this but since I always reiterate: one-piece outfits are like my second skin. Loose-fit dresses included; jumpsuits even more so. They are and feel liberating – the paramount priority I give to many things in my life. 😉 That’s also exactly how wearing this wrap skirt


    snake print in hot pink

    October 3, 2014

      The appeal of side stripes on pants never gets old to me. The all-over abstract snake print in hot pink adds another fascinating dimension. I’m wearing my favorite early fall sweater on top – I cannot seem to get enough of this baby. It has everything I want in


    Fit Flare Fluffy Wuzzy, Knit by Mom

    October 1, 2014

    I can barely hold in my excitement: this fuzzy-wuzzy, light-as-air, fit and flare, pastel sweater dress was knit by my loving and certainly talented mother! Months ago, I casually brought it up to mom that I’d like a drop-waist sweater dress made in fine and plush yarns. Being a knitwear


    9.2.14: Global Chic Is On

    September 2, 2014

    I love rich tapestry. The embedded ethnic elements are absolutely fascinating. And what matches tapestry better than some suede fringe? The combo is boho, artisanal, and always quite a statement. My girlies on instagram seem to obsess over the buckled sandals. These heels go well with pretty much everything. The only

    Like I said, I spent a lovely weekend at the House in Kinderhook, New York. We took these pictures inside and around the property’s living room/studio – a high-ceilinged, freestanding cottage next to the two-story main house that holds 3 bedrooms and a kitchen. The country property is so artsy and chic that


    basic with a twist

    June 2, 2014

    When I’m traveling, especially to big cities where walking and public transport is likely all one gets, comfortable shoes are an uncompromisable item. It may sound like a no-brainer to most of you but well, a liberating outfit cannot really liberate until it’s embraced, right?  Let’s just say I’ve had my time wishing my


    casual country

    June 1, 2014

    These were taken during the Memorial weekend getaway at the country house in Kinderhook, New York. The property is just as beautiful as seen on Elle Decor and House, a fully illustrated book on compelling architecture by Diane Keaton. We found out, for the first time, that Zoe, the labrador, loves watermelon
