Taunted by Miu Miu and Prabal Garung for J Crew

Isn't it so considerate that one's favorite stores will taunt you via email with items you might enjoy? Miu Miu was kind enough to email me today. Do you think they know about my shoe fetish? Or about my obsession with all that is Miu Miu?  Below are my latest shoes to covet. I think my sister and friend are in cahoots with Miu Miu because they also emailed these shoes to me today knowing that I would love them. Hmmm, maybe it's a sign that they are looking for a home in my closet. It will be crowded but they will be in very good company!

My other latest obsession is with Prabal Garung for J Crew. I mean, I'm a sucker for just about anything with an oversize bow.

Party in the Park

This week has been chock full of parties and philanthropic endeavors and the Party in the Park was to benefit the Liff Fund for the Emerald Necklace. Despite the cold and rain, the party was gorgeous (and thankfully under a tent).





The exquisite flowers were from Winston Flowers.

The tables just looked magnificent!











But the real stars of the party were the hats and fascinators. Oh why doesn't this town have more occasions for hats?

And here is Elisha in her hat and me in my fascinator. Getting gussied up in hats is fun but the people watching was just divine!

Teri John dress, Christian Louboutin pumps, Lauren Elan necklace, fascinator from Elisha's shop

And at the request of the lovely Milla, here is a picture of the dress.

Hot Pink

posted awhile back about Boston's upcoming Hot Pink Party. Well it has now come and gone and it was a superb event raising over $1 million for breast cancer research.



The party was in the new Shapiro wing of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts and the space was just incredible.



The flowers and centerpieces were beyond beautiful and the tables were perfect outfitted in pink and white stripes care of Brooks Brothers.

The food was prepared by Boston's own Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger, Daniel Bruce of Meritage and Michael Schlow of Via Matta and Radius among others.

Sara Campbell coat, Kate Spade dress, Lady Dior bag, Valentino shoes

Kenneth Jay Lane earrings, Terry Ross ring, necklace from Small Pleasures, Elisha Daniels flower
As for what I wore, I opted to stand out in a sea of pink by staying neutral in gray and white. I love this striped Kate Spade dress that I wore with platinum Valentino heels and because it's chilly and rainy, I wore a Sara Campbell jacket from the archives of my closet.

Neon Red

I happened upon this neon red nail polish at American Apparel. In this picture it looks more orange but in different light it looks like a bright neon red. I just love it.

Aris Geldis necklace, Equipment blouse, Rag and Bone jeans
So imagine my sheer delight at having found these Rag and Bone jeans in the same color.

Zara scarf, H&M trench cape, Balenciaga bag, Chanel flats
Worn with the trusty H&M trench cape that has been ever so handy in this ridiculous May New England weather that feels like March.
