i’ve always had a soft spot for chanel costume jewelry, and i invested in a few key pieces while i was in london. the necklace is more subdued that i would have expected to choose, but the station style is perfect for work and going out.
while in london, we were fortunate to visit the alaia exhibit at the design museum. what struck me the most was that some of these dresses were 40 years old, yet you could easily imagine someone wearing them today.
a close up of the extraordinary details.
i spent the long weekend in london with some dear friends. we went to the “pret-a-portea” at the berkeley hotel, where all the cakes were inspired by this season’s fashions. the tea room was gorgeous and light-flooded, and the service was impeccable.
i finally made it to abc v a few weekends ago. the vegetarian and health-focused menu was so delightful that my friend and i ate until we couldn’t feel our stomachs anymore. the most interesting thing i had was the coconut yogurt topped with pistachio granola (first picture). i think i am going to try my hand at making my own.
during the first week of may, tiffany painted parts of new york tiffany blue to celebrate reed krakoff’s first jewelry collection for the brand. i didn’t manage to spot any blue taxis or metrocards, but i did walk by this bodega on the way to the theater district one night.
evidently all the flowers were hand made by the tiffany’s creative team. such a fun way to welcome spring.
you can see from my last post that i have been a bit obsessed with fresh flowers lately. after watching a million youtube videos, including this one that i love, i decided to try my hand at making proper bouquets. i bought three bouquets at the chelsea flower market and this is what i ended up with.
i absolutely love anemones, and i finally got my hands on a gorgeous bunch from the chelsea farmers market. the black marks are from the pistils.
the print in the background is from the affordable art fair. i loved the colors and the overall summer vibes.
i recently reached a personal milestone, and there was no better way to reward myself than with this gorgeous plum-colored celine trifold bag. the size is perfect for me for work (admittedly, i don’t tote around my life), and the pebbled leather is surprisingly resistant.
these slots are perfect for my metrocard and building pass.
