What a Babe. Haute in The City.

Jennifer. Central Park. April 2015.

I love Jennifer’s sunglasses. They are different and add instant style to whatever she wears.

CP 2

I had to meet this mom, who accomplished something, I just can’t.  She looks stunning in a cashmere turtle neck.  Jennifer’s style is casual and chic with a little added funk.


So in case you don’t know, these are Golden Goose sneakers.  They are the fashion sneaker for the fashion set, who make sacrifices to buy $500.00 kicks.  I get the love of funky sneakers..when you live in a city, cool kicks are a worthwhile investment.

Back pockets on sweat pants do a world of good to your backside.


Digging the orange Hermès wrap around watch..it’s like a bracelet.

Little White Pocketbooks are so Haute. Aspen Drop-Off.


Caryn. Aspen, Colorado. August 2014.

Caryn likes quality, as I assessed during our conversation about fashion.  Residing in Miami with her husband and two kids, Caryn was another lucky mama able to enjoy the incredible Aspen summer.  When I talk about Aspen, I feel a little weird, because it sounds a bit out of touch..and I get that most people aren’t using “summering” as a verb – i’m certainly not.

Like i’ve mentioned before, Miami is brutal in the summer and people who can escape the humidity to hike, bike and be outside in gorgeous Aspen – definitely take full advantage. This is why Aspen is filled with Dallas and Miami visitors in the summer – they all need an escape.   Aspen is a town filled with high end stores, amazing thrift shops (I will share my finds soon), music festivals (mostly classical and Jazz), bars, free buses etc… It’s a gift to be able to breathe the fresh air in the summer and spend time with my family.

And talk about music..besides the incredible musicians you hear all over town, studying at the prestigious Aspen Music School, Aspen is also home to the iconic Belly Up.  Belly Up is a special place to hear music in an intimate setting.  We saw Ryan Adams, Super Diamond (The Neil Diamond cover band) and Aimee Mann and Ted Leo.  Every night at Belly Up is another impressive band..some less known..some famous..but all really unique and talented.  And back to fashion….

I LOVE Caryn’s white Celine handbag.  White “pocketbooks” were really big this summer, I got an amazing one..and will be wearing it all year, winter white baby! And I’m pretty confident white leather boots, will be worn on the most fashionable feet this fall….

Fashion Notes: Handbag: Celine, Shorts: J.Crew, Cashmere Sweater: Chan Luu, purchased at the boutique 02 Aspen, Sunglasses: Prada, Watch: Cartier and Flip-Flops: Louis Vuitton

Haute Vintage Cashmere. Nostalgia at Drop-Off.


San Rafael, California. October 2013.

Fashion Notes: Tahitian Pearls, Vintage Cashmere Sweater, Free People Pants and Minnetonka Moccasins.

This mom is donning her mother’s cashmere sweater, most likely from the 1970’s.  I still wear my grandmother’s cashmere sweaters..at this point they are not vintage,  but antique.  The older sweaters fit like a glove, showing off your curves in all the right places.

When I wear these sweaters, I feel like a 1950’s pin up..only thing missing is the pointy bra.  Additionally, it makes me happy to feel like I am somehow spending the day with my amazing grandmother.  Sylvia had a quick wit and a gorgeous face, a “deadly” combination, that only the lucky ones could appreciate.  This one is for you Sylvia!
