Winter in Eileen Fisher


I was going through my closet the other day and realized I didn’t own a nice pair of black silk pants! I haven’t really mentioned this in previous posts but silk pants are another MUST-HAVE item in everyone’s closet and a great staple piece. I have numerous pairs of jeans, leather pants and skirts but no silk pants.

So, naturally, I made my way to the Bloomingdale’s flagship store on 59thand Lexington to find a nice pair of slacks. If you haven’t seen this particular Bloomingdales lately, it is being completely remodeled and looks amazing! The layout is so clean cut and sectioned off by designer. They are still under construction but I can’t wait to see the finished product!

Whiteface Lodge

Whiteface Lodge is the most beautiful property located in Adirondack Park, about a 5hr drive from NYC. I haven’t been to this area in years but I do have fond memories of visiting Lake Placid and Olympic Village when I was a kid. For years I have been hearing about a spectacular lodge located in upstate NY and it’s been on my bucket list to stay here for quite some time. I finally made it and no picture can do this lodge justice or capture its beauty. It is truly a serene getaway where there is something for everyone. Whether you are a nature lover or more inclined to head to the Spa, Whiteface Lodge is a place you must visit. The resort offers every activity imaginable including bowling, a movie theater, ice-skating, wellness classes, a full service spa and delicious restaurants (just to name a few). Continue Reading

Leather and Leopard

A leather Moto jacket is one article of clothing that will never go out of style! I own 2 different types, each with its own purpose. I have a “light” Moto Jacket that I use as more of a layering piece (aka wear it over a short sleeve shirt or dress) and then I have my classic heavy leather Moto jacket that is ideal for cold weather. The heavy leather is perfect for this time of the year and looks great when paired with a chunky knit scarf!  Continue Reading
