The Nutcracker

I'm so excited to be going to see The Nutcracker at Boston's Opera House tonight!  The Nutcracker, presented by the Boston Ballet, is a holiday tradition here in Boston and one that I love to be a part of. What's not the love about it? Breathtaking scenery, check! Fabulous costumes, check! Dancing, music, the historic opera house, check, check check! 

It runs until December 31 and you can get tickets here.


Shades of Grey

Outfit details: Neiman Marcus sweater, Lafayette 148 trousers, Prada booties, Chanel bag and necklace, Hermés bracelet

I wore this a couple of Saturdays ago to attend a fun brunch at the Four Seasons hosted by Neiman Marcus in honor of Diana Vreeland Parfums. It was a fun crowd of local ladies and we had the pleasure of chatting with Alexander Vreeland about his grandmother and the fragrances. 


Weekend Tidbits :: Bergdorf Holiday Windows

Sorry for my absence the last week or so. Work has been busy and so has the social calendar. I spent the Thanksgiving holiday in New York City with my sis and her family. We had a lovely day Friday doing a bit of shopping and having a fabulous lunch at The Gramercy Tavern. One of the New York City highlights during the holidays is the holiday decor in the windows at Bergdorf Goodman

I have a newfound appreciation for the Bergdorf Windows after finally having watched Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's (I did a post here). Putting these window displays together is more like putting up a theater set and takes the better part of a year. This year's them was the arts and I only wish it hadn't been so cold out as I would have liked to linger in front of each window much longer than the wintry weather allowed.

The literature window was made entirely from fabric and needlework.

The architecture window was built from paper and old blueprints.



Outfit details: Moncler coat, Seven jeans, Miu Miu booties (from last year but similar here and here), 3.1 Philip Lim bag (a couple years old but good options here, here and here)

It's feeling like winter in Boston and this past weekend was the first occasion to pull out the puffer coat. I usually loathe a puffer coat since it stands for the worst of the weather that we New Englanders endure. But this ruffle hem version makes it almost okay.


Weekend Tidbits :: Ahead of the Game

This weekend was a lovely one. I had Friday off to attend the Fashion Plates event to benefit the National MS Society and it's always nice to have a long weekend. I did a bit of shopping and also caught up on the pile of fashion mags and watched Showtime's The Affair so far. Has anyone watched it?  

I bought this fabulously unique Chanel necklace. Goodness knows I have enough jewelry but I just couldn't resist this beauty.

Some fall flowers to spruce my place up and my stack of weekend reading.


Finally, it's been the coldest so far this year but I'm ahead of the game in the sandal department as I bought these shimmery navy sandals which will come in handy for some upcoming Florida jaunts.
