Valentino Men's Spring 2018

TAKING ME BACK

the spring 2018 men’s fashion shows are taking place right now in europe. the valentino show took me back to a time (around 18 years ago) when i used to wear track suit jackets, colorful tennis shoes, track pants, parkas, and yes, i even had a few embroidered belts i’d tie around my jeans or chinos.

keep in mind i never wore it all together like they did at valentino, but this collection sure took me back in time…and it’s true, if you stick around long enough, what’s old will again be new again. 

 

A LITTLE MORE OUT EAST

i’m a bit obsessed with woody house, the long island beach house i blogged about on monday that is in the newest architectural digest/ read here. i went down the rabbit hole and found more pictures of the shingled fantasy on the architects, pietro cigognani, website 

love the outside and the gardens as much as i do the inside. the red striped awnings, the green trim, all the wicker, the red potted geraniums and batik textiles are a feast for the eyes. also, i love that we get a few more views of my favorite room, the sunroom. 

this house is so chic, it’s just oozing with great style, and it’s got me thinking that i really need a rambling shingled beach cottage out east. enjoy!

TORY’S TREASURES

i’m a fan of tory burch and all of her homes. she has so much personal style and her lifestyle is so inspiring. she lives beautifully and i like to devour every detail. 

her gracie clad entry way, olive green velvet living room, and lime green kitchen in nyc is everything. her iksel dining room, quadrille upholstered solarium and pastel and chintz living room in southampton is more than everything and her new home in antigua, bunny mellon’s former home, is something i can’t wait to see more of. 

british vogue just paid a visit to her nyc home at the pierre. it was great to see more of it/ take a tour here. it was really great to see some of tory’s art collection, a robins egg blue lucio fontana, a cobalt blue yves klein statue and a very rare magritte

it’s not a surprise tory has some treasures. of course she does.
