LIFE


HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR HUSBAND?

We were both interns at Morgan Stanley in Washington, D.C. I needed help with a filing cabinet and the rest is history….!


WHAT IS THE OLDEST THING IN YOUR CLOSET?

A small Hermes square scarf that my grandfather gave me when I was 8 years old. After that my oldest is piece is probably a Max Mara top I bought in Italy when I was in college. Frank and I went together for 10 days the summer before our senior year. It is still the best vacation I’ve ever been on and I can’t wart with the top! I tend to keep things FOREVER (especially investment pieces)!


WHERE IS YOUR WHITE LIVING ROOM SOFA FROM?

One Kings Lane! Its sold out but here is a similar style. Ours is also this crypto fabric which has been really helpful repelling stains from the kids (but mostly mine!).


ARE YOU CHRISTIAN? JEWISH? ANYTHING?

I was raised Roman Catholic. I don’t consider myself to be very religious but I am very spiritual if that makes sense. I believe in God and in Heaven and an after life.


HOW OLD ARE YOU?

I’m 34 years old. My birthday is September 25th. Libra:)


Do you have a Spotify playlist?

Not yet but its on my list of to-do’s for March!


Where is your living room rug from?

Its from Safavieh! When we moved in the first thing I wanted to find were rugs for our living room/dining room areas. They’re connected so I knew I wanted to use the same neutral style in both spaces to make it appear larger. I actually found ours on Amazon and took a chance! What a steal! Its since sold out but I was able to find it here and here. Our color is “light gray”.

FASHION


WHAT ARE YOUR OPINIONS ON WEARING A FUR COAT AT THIS TIME OF YEAR?

Not sure if this was referring to real fur but I don’t buy real anymore. I have a fur vest (I think fox) that I purchased from a consignment shop 10+ years ago that I still wear because I love it and it wasn’t inexpensive but I wouldn’t purchase it again. Now as for faux fur…YES! It has become so much easier to find amazing faux that you’re not even tempted by the real thing. For men I prefer the look of a shearling coat like this reversible shell. This is my favorite brand these days for faux.


WHO MAKES YOUR SUNGLASSES?

Celine Catherine and the style number is 41098. Mine are the Havana blue with tortoise. Here is a similar pair!


DO YOU HAVE A CAPSULE WARDROBE OF KEY PIECES?

Not yet but I’m working on it! Should be on the blog early next month!


GO-TO COLD WEATHER FOOTWEAR?

Three years ago I purchased a winter boot from Stuart Weitzman and still wear them all the time. They really make the best/most comfortable styles in general and I find their cold weather to be no different. I like this one. For rain I recently purchased this pair - love the Chelsea style and the price!


HAVE YOU SEEN ANY GOOD BLACK CARDIGANS/COATIGANS OUT THERE? SOMETHING WITH STRUCTURE!

I always find that Madewell has a new sweater coat style every season. There are only a few styles left but this black one looks like a classic. Also this one is great (collarless though so a little less structured) and comes in many colors.


FAVORITE WHITE T-SHIRT?

This will be included in the capsule wardrobe! My all-time favorite white t’s are these and these from Theory. I became addicted to them when I worked there and stocked up right before leaving. They hold up really well and look better overtime in my opinion. For a less expensive version I purchased this one in white during the summer and its a different look but also great quality for the price.
