As I’m searching the market for my first home to buy, I’ve come to prioritize the desired from the necessary from the won’t-pull-the-trigger-without-this. And this is good floors. Simply put, you can’t cheat with flooring the way you can furniture (case in point, only a small handful of people can tell the difference between a couch… [Cont.]

As I’m considering purchasing my first home, I have been contemplating master bath furniture. I keep coming back to the industrial aesthetic embodied in reproduced pharmacy cabinets. Since bathrooms typically have a feminine feel to them (especially if they’re designed by and for a woman), I think pieces like these add a slight masculine contrast… [Cont.]
I’m mildly obsessed with glassware. A gorgeous glass takes the experience of enjoying a cocktail and bumps it up a few notches. I also think that providing your guests with a drink in a special glass makes them feel special. And champagne flutes are made for special: special celebrations, occasions, toasts.

Since the mainstream perfume industry is dominated by fragrances from the various designers and fashion houses (which is how they make most of their money), it’s almost guaranteed that as you cozy up to the man in your life, your smell will… [Cont.]
If you’re still sweet on the brogue trend, this pair from Cole Haan, with their snake-print finish and contrasting sole, is a great option. Pair with black opaque tights and a skirt, or black leggings and a sweater dress.
This is not your typical hook. A series of plastic resin hands will hold your hat, coat, keys or (as I use them) dog leashes. Put it in the guest bathroom for hand towels or, if you’re saucy, an extra roll of toilet paper. Available here.
Every time I see my mother (my first style inspiration), she looks down at my feet and says ‘how can you wear those ridiculous shoes??!!’, launching into a speech about bunions and the dangers of high heels. And she has a point. High heels in her day were little torture devices with pointy toes, inadequate… [Cont.]
