Linda’s at Bergdorf Goodman

ll3I remember the first time I saw Linda Fargo in person at Bergdorf Goodman. She was in the restaurant on the 7th floor, sitting in the robin’s egg blue “conversation chairs” by the window, wrapping up a photo shoot. After she left, the host sat us at that table. My mom and I were like two school girls we were so excited.

Since that day, I’ve caught a glimpse of her in the store, but mainly in the fashion magazines and front row at Fashion Week. She’s iconic. Not only does she have her signatrue silver bob and red lips, but she has STYLE. In spades. Which is why she now has her own stand alone shop within the store….Linda’s.

Just imagine if one of the most original, fashionable and creative tastemakers in the world curates her favorite things in the store and puts them in one place. That’s Linda’s closet! Located on the 4th floor, I now have another reason to take a spin through this fantasy-level, one-of-a-kind shop within a shop.Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 11.00.34 PMhead_long_042917_01 l9 l10Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 11.02.13 PM l12 l13Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 11.02.37 PM l15 l21 l23 l24 linda ll4 ll7 ll11 ll12 ll17Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 10.48.22 PMHow much fun would it be to try to walk in Linda’s shoes, literally, for an afternoon! I’ll try to get there soon so I can share more inside pics!

Kips Bay Showhouse 2017

kips-bay-decorator-showhouse-2016-01Among the highlights of Spring is the Kips Bay Decorator Show House in NYC. What began in 1973 as a means of supporting the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club has turned into a highly anticipated designer show house, drawing from top talent across the country. One of the names that I am most excited to see is Ken Fulk, who will surely give us not just a decorated room, but an experience.

Tuesday, May 1st through Wednesday, June 1st

125 East 65th Street (b/w Park and Lexington Avenues)      

kips-bay-decorator-showhouse-2016-03 kips-bay-decorator-showhouse-2016-11 kips-bay-decorator-showhouse-2016-16I always leave awed, inspired and ready to incorporate something I see into my own home. Don’t miss it!

NYC Hotspot – While We Were Young

cocktail-item-36Girls Night Out just got a lot more dreamy! I’m already planning a GNO of my own to this beautiful little jewel box, When We Were Young, that has opened in the West Village, so let me know if you’re interested! With the prettiest pink banquette and beckoning blue bar, this is the kind of place you may go for a gorgeous cocktail (almost too pretty to drink), but can also stay for a photo-worthy dinner.

Would you believe that a man, Bradford Dunigan, is the creative mind behind this pretty little place?! After spending time in the fashion industry, Bradford has put his heart and soul into launching While We Were Young and has received an enthusiastic reception on Instagram and from the lucky ones who have snagged one of the restaurant’s 40 seats.Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 8.42.26 PM kitchen-item-77 instagram-04 cocktail-item-16Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 2.01.13 PMinstagram-05 instagram-02 instagram-03 instagram-06 instagram-07 instagram-08 kitchen-item-19 Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 2.01.39 PMcocktail-item-44-1If you are looking for an “experince” with friends this Spring in the city, this should be at the top of your list! Can’t you just see Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda meeting there for Sunday brunch?

And, how can you not love a place that gives you gummy bears with your check?!
