When my older daughter, Stella, was a baby, my mommy friends said, “Enjoy dressing her up now! Soon she won’t let you!” Boy, were they right! Kids become shockingly opinionated at a very young age and there is only so much negotiation you can do with a toddler. One week she will only wear dresses; the next week it’s all bathing suits.Read More

We've charmed in chiffon, we've lounged in linen, and we've lured in lace, but this summer, it's time to say "Yes WAY!" to crochet. Hailing from the counterculture of the late 60's and holding strong into the 70's, this granny-chic fabric is a groovy breath of fresh air in a sea of uptight, "clean line" styles. I acknowledge that a full-crochet rainbow dress may be too aggressive for some, but there are plenty of more subtle options (such as a white dress with crochet trim or a crochet vest to be worn over a button down blouse or shirtdress) that you can choose. You can avoid looking like a member of the That 70's Show cast by pairing these kitschy knitted pieces with modern accessories (like a moto-inspired cross-body bag)...or embrace the excessively retro movement and commit to a Jackie Burkhart moment with a boho bag and platforms. Your choice. Crochet pieces can be found at all price points from Miu Miu to H&M, or search Etsy for the authentic vintage selection!

Last week, I accompanied my husband to San Francisco for a medical conference. While he worked, I played. I went vintage shopping, had Irish coffee at Buena Vista (twice), and roamed the hills of the city. Never one to shy away from literal theme-dressing, I couldn't help but channel the hippie vibes of the Haight-Ashbury while exploring the City by the Bay. My hippie may be more a little more glam than earthy, authentic hippie chicks like Joan Baez and Stevie Nicks. I guess one may call this look "Haute Hippie." Oh shoot, someone beat me to that name.
By now you probably know that there is little I love in life more than a statement accessory (my family, close friends, and simple carbohydrates rank just above.......kidding). There is no word besides groovy to describe these zigzag suede Jimmy Choo boots from AMUZE (that you can get for an insanely ridiculous deal that is almost too good to be true). What better place to wear these groovy boots than in the city that was home to psychedelic rock and the hippie counterculture movement? What I wouldn't give to be taking shots of Southern Comfort with Janis Joplin in 1967. I can almost hear Bobby McGee...
I am so proud to officially introduce the newest addition to our family, our second daughter, Juliet Georgie Savetsky. We are so in love with our sweet angel. To celebrate Juliet's arrival, my dear friend and the most fabulous hostess on the planet, Adi (of Fabologie.com), threw a bébé chic party. Adi thought of every special detail from rosé and cupcakes to gorgeous floral arrangements and my favorite iced coffee from Sant Ambroeus, making it a day we will never forget. The party was held in the private garden of the Essie nail salon and all of the guests got chic manicures in between sipping, noshing, and taking turns holding baby Juliet. It was the perfect way to celebrate the newest princess in town! Below are some photos we snapped before the party.
