Kate Schelter's Classic Style


Kate Schelter is an undeniably talented illustrator, stylist, and creative director, who has worked with brands from Bonpoint to Bulgari. Thus, she is a perfect person to write a book about timeless style. Her new book, "Classic Style: Hand It Down, Dress It Up, Wear it Out" is a beautifully illustrated guide to the 'classics' - from clothing to beauty to accessories to everyday objects that can define your personal style. Kate's mantra to personal style is one I whole heartedly agree with ..  inspiring you to buy less, buy better, reinvent what you already have and own your look. Happy reading!

Peep's Paper Products

I absolutely adore Peep's Paper Products whimsical designs from their custom wedding invitations to their unique playing cards (hello, cute wedding favor!). Thus, I was delighted when they recently released the most beautiful baby book featuring sweet watercolor designs. This luxurious journal is truly the perfect way to document your baby's first year and makes a truly thoughtful gift.

Sachin & Babi Bridal Spring 2018

 
I have long admired Sachin & Babi's simply show-stopping evening wear (this is now one of my go-to's in my closet). Recently their beyond beautiful bridal collections have also caught my eye. The Spring 2018 Collection is absolutely breath-taking. Brides-to-be, take note.

Favorite Father's Day Find


I have long admired Cuyana's intentionally designed products made with undeniable quality. You can expect to see me wearing this beach hat from their latest Collection all Summer long. 

Thus, as I was searching for the perfect Father's Day gift, I was absolutely delighted to come across their Weekender Bag. The combination of the classic canvas (particularly in the Charcoal hue!) matched with beautiful leather details makes this piece a 'must-have' for every Dad. Not to mention it is perfectly personalized with his initials. Want to make the gift extra special? Put a voucher for a weekend away together inside. Or ... just throw one of your darling children in there like I did!

J. Mendel Resort 2018

 
When I typically think of J. Mendel ... fabulous furs immediately come to mind. But, out of all the Resort Collections for the 2018 season, I have to say that J. Mendel truly had some of my favorite pieces. These dresses are each exquisite from the intricate details to sculptural silhouettes and beautiful color palette (which you know well by now is my favorite!). Simply swooning. For those of you who are just as in love with this collection as I am ... the pieces are currently available for pre-order on Moda Operandi.

Truly Timeless


 
I have long adored the Hermes Kelly Watch as it is truly a timeless timepiece that is both subtle and sophisticated. It's versatile enough to wear with everything from blue jeans to black tie (particularly in black, like mine) What is fantastic is lately I have found a multitude of these beauties on The Real Real and Saks Off Fifth for quite a steal (a fraction of the price!) - I am loving this one, and this one

Serious Skin Saver


I have to admit that I never been the best about putting sunscreen on my face daily. At the beach ... of course. But, for everyday ... nope. I just have never found a sunscreen that I loved the way it felt on my skin, especially with make-up since I love a super minimal look. Thus, I was absolutely delighted that Glossier came out with their revolutionary Invisible Shield SPF 35. It is absolutely a game changer. The clear watergel formula feels like a serum and leaves absolutely no reside. In fact, it's the opposite ... I think it actually makes your skin glow. A serious skin saver.

Making Laundry Luxurious

 
Laundry and luxury are two words that you would never imagine in the same sentence. However, interior designer, Dina Bandman, showed us that is not the case with the exquisite laundry room she designed for this year's San Francisco Decorator Showcase. From the de Gournay wallpaper to the gorgeous floors ... I wouldn't mind doing load after load if this what my laundry room looked like.

Another way to make the mundane task of doing laundry just a little more luxurious is with products from The Laudress, they are non-toxic, smell incredible ... not to mention have the chicest packaging I've ever seen on cleaning products. I am seriously smitten with their cashmere wash, which is a savior for my sweaters (and dry cleaning bill!) and their line of baby products.

Head Over Heels: Powder Puff

 
Velvet shoes are everywhere these days from these Alexandre Birman beauties to the latest Valentino Pre-Fall Collection. But the latest ones I am truly head over heels for are these Aquazzura Powder Puff heels complete with velvet and the perfect pom pom. I cannot decide between the grey or rose for Fall. Which shoes would you chose?!

La Ligne Monograms

I was absolutely delighted to recently discover that one of my favorite brands for all things chic and striped, La Ligne, now does monogramming. They have mastered the art of classic with a twist and did just the same with their monograms. Just as one often strikes through their name when writing a personal note on formal stationery, they do just the same with their monograms (.. and I love it!). I just ordered this tee and am seriously considering this sweater from their collection. Perfectly personal.

Can't Miss from Cannes

The fashion on the Red Carpet at the Cannes Film Festival every year is always truly jaw dropping. From the setting to the gowns (... and the jewels!) exquisite is an understatement. This year there were two looks that I was seriously swooning over .... Kendall Jenner in Giambattista Valli and Elsa Hosk in Alberta Ferretti. Simply smitten.

French Girl Organics

 
Who doesn't want what the French girls have? The French-inspired luxury skincare line, French Girl, is more than meets the eye (... their seriously chic packaging that is). The secret is out about the organic brand, which was started in 2010 as an Etsy shop, but is now sold everywhere from Goop to Nordstrom. The Lumiere Bronzing Oil will be a 'must-have' in my make-up bag this Summer and I am seriously smitten with everything in the line from the Lip Polish to the Sea Spray.

Tory Burch x Dodie Thayer

Two years ago, Tory Burch collaborated with the pottery princess of Palm Beach, Dodie Thayer to create a gorgeous collection of Lettuce Ware. Dodie's pieces have been collected by the most chic of hostesses since the 60s. Thus, I am delighted that Tory has found a way to offer them at a more affordable price and am seriously smitten with the latest tabletop offering in white bone china. Perfect for any Spring or Summer Soiree.

Undeniably Darling Bridal Party

All weekend I was simply swooning over every image of Pippa Middleton's wedding. But, what truly stole the show was her undeniably darling page boys and bridesmaids. The outfits were custom designed by one of my favorite Spanish brands from the UK, Pepa & Co. Following the wedding, the beautiful children's brand launched a new "Celebration" Collection, with incredible bridal party looks for little ones. I am seriously smitten with this dress.

Head Over Heels: Lena Erziak

 
 
Just this week I was walking by the boutique, Betty Lin, and noticed the most incredible shoes through the window. They were made by a label I was unfamiliar with, Lena Erziak, which was founded by two sisters and recently relaunched in 2016 after a few year hiatus (why I didn't know about them!) They have the most gorgeous styles, which are truly show-stopping from these to these to these. Which shoes would you choose?!

dCc Style Crush: Giorgia Tordini

There is absolutely no denying that I have a huge style crush on Italian born designer (co-founder of the label, The Attico) and creative consultant, Giorgia Tordini. She always manages to exude effortless chic, mixing classic pieces with show-stopping accessories... and it doesn't hurt that she is stunningly beautiful. Giorgia serves as the perfect example that less really is more.
