The ornamental tassel is all the rage, whether mini or large and in charge, adding an expected dose of glam to bags and jewelry this season.

My shoe staple for the season are these buff patent leather platform sandals. They go with all my neon accessories and perfect with all my summer brights.
Here are a few of my favorite accessories I have been wearing daily this spring. Since receiving my Sylva & Cie jade and diamond cocktail ring from my husband I have not taken it off . Happy Birthday to me! It is all about the rock candy large and in charge cocktail ring. In addition I recently found this vintage minaudiere that works with everything in my closet. The perfect little gem to sport for spring.
(Stay tuned! Video on Birkin coming soon.)
Drum roll please! My very favorite accessory of them all the coveted 35cm Hermes Birkin bag. I can fit everything for work and play in this beauty. It really is the best everyday bag I could ever dream of or fantasize about. I believe in a well curated timeless collection of design. My closet is my happy place and source of inspiration.

Why is it when the weather gets a little gloomy we get a little gloomy? Ever think about that?
So I decided to head south for a little sun to turn my frown up side down.
Destination W South Beach Miami where I discovered sun kissed skin, healthy bodies and an abundance of creative ideas. Overall a fruitful escape from the doldrums of winter. Other lovely finds along the way...
Now I am back gearing up for NY Fashion Week. Can I get a hooray for Fashion week!

The last few weeks I have been on an artists retreat. Seeking inspiration I traveled west and landed in Santa Barbara and took shelter at the San Ysidro Ranch, just 90 miles from LA.
Nestled into the lush Montecito foothills, the ranch provided a tranquil retreat for this artist.
Myth and history mingle in gardens where Vivien Leigh and Sir Laurence Olivier exchanged vows in the setting of John and Jackie Kennedy's honeymoon. You can feel the residue of the old school glamour everywhere you turn.
My private cottage offered intimate seclusion and a grand opportunity to go within, a place to indulge the senses and invigorate the soul. Sometimes it is just good to listen. Listen to your true voice, your true self. I find those are the times I create my best work as an artist.
The ranch provides exquisite culinary excellence. The Plow & Angel offers dishes created from herbs and vegetables grown in the organic gardens of the ranch.
