“Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.”

Lately I’ve been loving the instagrams of Parisian music producer and model Caroline de Maigret. Yes, she’s the same chic Parisian spotted in the impossibly cool new Madewell campaign. I can’t get enough of her romantic tomboy style and peony-filled apartment. When asked her style motto she replied, “Always dress to meet the love of your life.” Such fun advice. Oh and she has a great tumblr too.
This fall I’m all about simple attire with statement baubles. I rarely wear earrings, but have decided that this — due to the abundance of sparkly stunners on the market — simply must change. At the top of on my wish list:
1// Asha Olivia Earrings 2// Black Onyx Studs 3// Paris New York Earrings 4// Ben-Amun Maisie Earrings 5// Tortoise Brick Studs 6// Crystal Finge Drop Earrings 7// Coral Abba Earrings 8// Crystal Bow Studs
P.S. More baubles I’m loving lately…
I often stroll past Bunny Mellon’s Upper East Side townhouse en route to Central Park. It’s a stunning home at 125 East 70th Street and consumes more than 11,000 square feet. I’ve always admired the upper patio and its latticework visible from the street below. Banking heir Paul Mellon and his horticulturist wife Bunny (fun fact: she helped her friend Jacqueline Kennedy with the White House Rose Garden) built the home in 1965 and it’s just been listed by Sotheby’s Realty for a staggering $46 million. Can you even imagine?! The listing provides a rare peek inside and a view of the outdoor space I’ve always admired. It will be most interesting to see what it sells for — a girl can dream!
