I’ve been traveling all over the last few weeks. i was in nyc, then north carolina and the last few days in dallas. yesterday in dallas it finally felt like fall. there was a chill in the air and i actually saw some sweaters, jackets and scarves.

there’s just something about wearing ivory this time of year. it’s still light, but there’s something very cozy and super chic about it. 

thought it would be fun to mix some chic fall ivory looks with some cozy ivory stephen sills rooms. he’s the master and these rooms he designed are perfect back drop to an ivory season. 







i’ve been at high point market in north carolina this last week for my henredon furniture collection. i’ve been walking around and seeing so much furniture. i’m a little over stimulated and craving simple things and neutrals…i guess my current mood is apparent in my favorite pinterest pins this week….

funny how my moods always are reflected throughout the week via my pinning….

Dries Van Noten


dries van noten is celebrating 30 years in the business. his fall 2017 collection marked his 1ooth fashion show. here is a peek at the show and the collection.

dries brought together models that have walked his runways over the years to this show to celebrate this landmark achievement and milestone….i mean have you ever heard of a designer staying anywhere for 30 years? remarkable and inspiring. 

to continue this celebration a new documentary called Dries was just released. the film follows Van Noten over two years of work, interspersed with reflections over his past collections. We go inside his atelier, his office, his factories, and even his home as the director traces a unique vision from inspiration to conception, to fabric choices, to embroidery artisans in India, to rehearsals, to showtime.

next up a new book, dries van noten 1-100, that celebrates his 100 collections and the cinematic fashion shows he is legendary for. 

fun fact- dries has never paid for advertising. in this world of self promotion and over marketing he has solely relied on his talent, his vision, his artistry and 100 beautiful and cinematic fashion shows- this is truly something to celebrate. 

this post is dedicated to my dearest courtney tilinski- she loves dries.
