Lunch at Petrossian || Visiting the NYC Boutique & Cafe



Caviar for lunch?  Yes please!  Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the incomparable NYC Petrossian Boutique & Cafe for the first time.  I have passed this stunning historical building dozens of times, and always wondered what it was like to be served an opulent caviar sampling for lunch... the experience certainly did not disappoint.  

There is a bakery/store in the front area with freshly baked croissants, as well as tins of caviar & savories available for purchase.  Tucked away in a cozy upper level is the quaint cafe, in which we were met with impeccable, elegant service.  There we sampled different types of caviar & roe with fresh blinis and creme fraiche, paired with champagne and vodka.  The presentation was exquisite, as you will see from the images below!  If you want to do something unique next time you're out in the big city, stop in for a completely glamorous affair at Petrossian.

Be sure to also check out the video of my experience on my instagram!

Amber Floral || Spring with The Pretty Dress Company



A new season is just about upon us!  Our weather has just begun to change ever so slightly... temperatures are climbing and the sun feels stronger.  While I wait for the blooms, I'll just remain here by the water, with beautiful Manhattan views as my backdrop.  The Pretty Dress Company has just released my favorite dress, Tilly, in an explosion of spring floral prints!  Today I'm wearing my favorite colorway of the collection: Amber Rose.  Isn't it just stunning?!

Pearls & Daggers || Oculus with Miss Ladybug



Bringing you a little more darkness before winter is over, but sweet darkness... Miss Ladybug has done it again, and created more adorable, clever, gorgeous designs!  Here I've combined the "Dagger Through The Heart cardigan with pearl-adorned "Bite Me" collar, pretty but dangerous! :)  We took these images on a very cold day at the Oculus, which feels reminiscent to me of the space age 1960's,    like Seattle World's Fair & Space Needle.  I loved how this played on my own 1930's inspired styling, turning the Oculus into a deco Ziegfeld set.  I think of the futuristic mentality of the Machine Age, and their simple, geometric lines and shapes!
