Princess R

Lee Radziwill has long been a subject of fascination for many. She has always been terribly discreet and not spoken publicly about the family. Recently she has spoken to Sofia Coppola for a charming filmed interview that introduces a new generation to her husky, alluring voice and disarming candor. My aunt and Lee were friendly at Farmington.

                                                                 Andy Warhol's homage

The printed interview in The New York Times Magazine is even more revealing.


She remains a standard of the elegance of simplicity, and yet incredibly modern.

Old school 2013 diary

I have not joined the 21st century. When it comes to keeping track of appointments and my calendar, I cannot use Outlook. I must confess that the lowly pocket diary appeals more to my sensibilities.

I have tried them all. But I have come to prefer the Louis Vuitton small agenda, as it is sized just right. It fits perfectly into most of my bags, and is ideal for my small desk.

                                                       I love the bookmark, and the French 

These are actually stickers
                                        These stickers are great for indicating the type of engagement

The diary is filled with all sorts of other goodies, including beautiful maps, detailed guides to the various arrondissements, rulers and more.

I have had mine for about four years and love it. Each year the refills get better and better.

About Me

My photo
Living well is the best revenge...and a choice we make every day. Join me as I celebrate the bounty of beauty in all its forms: fashion, homestyle, accessories and everyday I juggle the roles of Mommy, wife, daughter, dog mommy, creative director, Zumba instructor, volunteer...all with more than a passing glance backward to an old-school, classic time when style was a way of life
