Bare Essentials

Pictures by Inès Monnet To show off the minimalist edge of this outfit, we took a break from our usual locations. The garden awakening to the morning light of spring created an enchanting setting. It was still too cold to be wandering about with only this H&M silk deep-V neck dress. So I was wrapped… Read More »

Grandma’s Got Taste

Pictures by Inès Monnet My grandmother was a coquette dresser with a most amazing dress sense. Even if she was just hanging about in the house, she would be all dressed and made up wearing lipstick.

Pictures by Kelly de Geer Editing by me On our last full day in New York, a bunch of us (Kelly, Alison of bangbangblond, Ken and I, decided to head out again to Williamsburg for brunch. It felt like spring – it must have been the warmest day (about 3 C°) in the fortnight we… Read More »

ootd pictures by Ken Moos Editing and other pictures by me The culinary highlight of this trip must be the treat to an exquisite lunch at the Mandarin Oriental. The Asiate restaurant is on the 35th floor overlooking Central Park. We took the special two course menu but the foodie that I am just couldn’t… Read More »

Magical Winter Light

Pictures by Ken Moos Editing by me Winter does have its good sides – in no other season will you get this soft diffused light for a photo shoot. We shot this outfit in front of our apartment in New York. It was late in the morning and the reflection of the sun on the… Read More »
