Boerum House & Home

Pop on over to a pop-up shop celebrating Brooklyn designers and artists, including - if I may boast - my husband Wayne Pate. His art is featured on the gallery wall, and the entire shop is wonderfully curated.  An oasis of tasteful design.

Calm within Chaos

I’m sure many women feel overwhelmed with demands and pressures, whatever they may be; yet I’m sure we all have pleasant spots of the day which place the pressures in perspective, often metaphorically so. Personally, I cherish my time in Shelter Island and the peaceful moments such as watching the waves wash over the pebbles. I also have a new puppy Chewy, which although he has boundless energy, he instills in me a feeling of calm.

We have a new print for Fall which I love: the White Noise print. It’s inspired by the energy of the city and modern life; technology, constant communication of competing frequencies, and the luxury of having a clean space where you can zone out, in peace.

A Nook with a View

One of my favorite things to do in the city is to simply watch people… fascinating! This is one of my favorite perches: in the window at Epistrophy Cafe in Nolita. A nice, comfortable bench, a European style cafe with a wonderful wine and beer selection, and the neighborhood guarantees a lot of interesting passersby to gawk at.

J’Adore: The Lace Sweatshirt

It’s starting to feel like spring in NYC (finally!) and my favorite item from the new collection - The Lace Sweatshirt - is taking a starring role in my spring wardrobe. I love how the melange grey feels light and feminine, and I wear it oversized for extra comfort- although some of the girls in the office prefer a more fitted look. I sometimes wear it over a striped top and let the stripes show through the lace insets for extra interest, and I love it with the Lace Skirt from the runway. It’s sport-inspired modern luxury and beyond trend, I can see myself wearing this for years to come!

With Glittering Eyes
Last night I was completely enchanted by the New York City Ballet Spring Gala. My favorite performance of the night was Glass Pieces… riveting music, a beautiful colour story, and creative choreography which really showcased the fantastic male dancers.  —costumes by Ben Benson, music by Phillip Glass, choreography by Jerome Robbins.
I’ve been taking advantage of the culture of NYC and find it’s always, endlessly, fascinating. There is an interesting performance art piece with an intriguing horror story vibe: Sleep No More. The less said about it the better as it’s really something to be experienced first hand…

Spring in your Step
They’re here … our Spring shoes! The Etra Sandal and the Jade Pump. We love how the nude magically lengthens the leg (look out Nadja Auerman), and the cobalt blue adds a pop of color and a smile on the face everytime you look down at them. Both are great all-day shoes for work to evening, or a day of weekend shopping. The photo is of a display at our Madison Avenue store, NYC
