I love this little drawing by illustrator Joana Avillez which imagines the child lit darling Eloise ditching her Upper East Side lifestyle for hipster Brooklyn- specifically the Wythe Hotel. It’s hilarious.
I know The Wythe has been blogged ad nauseum, but I actually am hoping to stay there soon as Andrew and I will be making a pilgrimage to the area to see some family and friends who have recently relocated there. I am obsessed with these rooms. Marble, brick, wallpaper… what’s not to like?
Reynard is the hotel’s restaurant, I love the graphics.
Not to mention the decor…
How about the outdoor patio??? AMAZING! what a space for an event!
And the interior private dining room… also charming.
Get the look of the Wythe with these pieces:

Holidays always remind me that I totally wimped out on registering for china for my wedding. I mean, I have some nice china, it’s just SOOOOO plain and boring. Pretty, but nothing that feels truly special. I wish I had gone with my gut and registered for the colorful, lovely china that had captured my heart when I walked the aisles with a scan gun and a diamond on my finger. I played it safe, and as I get older I find that playing it safe is NO FUN.
I recently came across this vintage Christian Dior malachite pattern called Gaudron on Replacements, Ltd and love it. Malachite is just the best.
This Etoiles by Bernadaud pattern was the one I fell in love with when engaged. But in 2004 gold wasn’t popular so I thought platinum was better. #regrets
I still love Constance by Bernadaud, the “Charlotte York Pattern” and one a few of my friends have. So classic. So lovely. Would love this one now.
This mint green and gold Oasis by Haviland pattern is so fresh and pretty and still fiercely on trend! It would look fabulous mixed with another pattern!
Speaking of mixing, how about this combination of Laque De Chine Pistachio and Juliska’s Country Estate, which I adore.
Or Hermes Chain D’ancre mixed with Jasper Conran’s Chinoiserie Green?
What did you register for? Do you still love it? What would you pick if you could do it over again?

I don’t think there is a more iconic fashion staple then the trench. I have been looking for the most wonderful, perfect, last-a-lifetime one (Burberry, of course, HERE- saving the pennies) for a long time. I want to wait and buy ONE and keep it until it’s in tatters. I love how it goes from casual to dressy and everything in between. It’s crazy sexy too, which is hard for a jacket that is tailored and covers everything up to be. We all need one.
The ladies that made this coat look immaculate and forever chic:
(Wendy, wearing the trench I am saving for, flawlessly I might add.)
This affordable trench is gorgeous, and I love pairing it with other French staples like stripes, booties and flared dark denim. Spring perfection.
