I love this candid photo of JFK reviewing Caroline and John Jr.’s Halloween costumes in the oval office. Can you imagine if those were your childhood memories of trick-or-treating? Amazing! What will you be doing for Halloween this year? I’m not feeling too festive this year but I am looking forward to passing out candy on our stoop. Can’t wait to see all the creative costumes!
Have fun and be safe!


Calypso’s holiday collection just launched and I’m absolutely drooling over some of their new arrivals. Golden gloves, a Glamourpuss muff, and the real stunner–that sequin dress! Wouldn’t you just die to wear it to a holiday soiree this winter? If I was feeling daring (I’m a whimp and usually just wear lipgloss), I’d take a cue from the model and pair it with bright red lips. So glam!


The new Lonny blog is one of my daily must-reads. It makes waiting for the next issue that much easier! They recently did a post on the emerging tribal trend which they dubbed “nouveau navajo.” Well, I’m loving it and was inspired to pull together a few pieces of my own.

So perfect for fall, don’t you think?


In my opinion, Emerson of EmersonMade can do no wrong (have you seen her New Hampshire home?!) Aside from fabric flowers in every color, I’m also coveting one of her new traveling coats. I’m in desperate need of a new fall jacket and these are pure perfection. The only question is big houndstooth or khaki cotton? I’m still holding out for a Burberry trench so I think big houndstooth might be the way to go.

P.S Don’t you think EmersonMade would be perfect for J.Crew’s “In Good Company” partnerships? Emerson could clearly be a model!


Did you know Hermes sells coloring books?! Neither did I until I stumbled across this little gem last night while browsing their site for inspiration. At $130 this might be a better gift for your artistic friend than your toddler Matisse in training. Who knows though, maybe this is what Apple and Suri doodle in? Regardless, I think I’ll be saving my pennies for a scarf!
