Where are you?

Some of you have written to ask, "Where are you?" I have been helping Mr. Mickey (my photographer and partner in life) to move into and get settled in his new home. My old home is still on the market so I am in the process of packing and also doing a few projects at my new home. Recently our "date nights" have consisted of manual labor.

I am so excited to show you my new home but I am a few weeks away from moving in. For now I will share with you some of the things that provide inspiration for me.

This is Timothy Corrigan's LA home. He has always been one of my favorite interior designers. He has a new book just out, "An Invitation to Chateau du Grand-Luce". 

My copy is on its way! I look forward to curling up in front of the fire with this book and a glass of wine later this month to absorb every detail. 

I always study the classics to get inspiration and guidance for any project I undertake whether it is dressing, designing jewelry, planning my gardens or decorating my home. For example I love the classic timeless style of Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn. I also admire some popular young women who currently show their own strong sense of style. Olivia Palermo is one of those young women who constantly impresses me with the way she dresses.

Below is a selfie of my casual look for today. I am on my way to the dentist and will be running lots of errands afterward.

I am wearing a long sweater vest and a long sleeve tee with a long tassel necklace all from Chico's last year. The jeans are Levis dark wash. The shoes are Vince Camuto.

Mr. Mickey and I are looking forward to a normal date night on Saturday so perhaps on Sunday I will have a fashion post to share with you. Thank you so much for reading my blog and for your kind comments. I truly enjoy interacting with you!
