Preparing for the pop up shop to be held Monday and Tuesday March 18-19 at Mary Mahoney 344 Worth Ave., Palm Beach, FL. 10:00am-5:00pm. I am selling some of my favorite things from my personal collection including jewelry, fabulous vintage handbags, shawls, clothing, my recent book and my decadently chic “Very Red Apfel” lipstick which is back in stock. So come ‘round and have a look.

I have the cutest new houseguest! Her name is Rainbow and she’s just the best little dog. I’m watching her while a friend is away in Europe. ❤️🐶

@dfspalmbeaches is a wonderful organization that helps women achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools that help women thrive in work and in life. Some tickets are still available to their luncheon on March 8th at  11:30 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. I’m thrilled to be able to work with this incredible team. I’m very proud to be the recipient of their First Style Icon Award!

Michaele Vollbracht was a very dear friend of mine and an extremely talented renaissance man. Part of his estate is up for auction at @urbancultureauctions and I hope to procure some of these incredible pieces.

This weekend I attended the book signing for my dear friend’s book "Elizabeth Thompson, 40 Years of Painting” at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach. You can view her work at
