Happy New Year! It’s hard to think about the beginning of the year when I’m so focused on the Fall / Winter ’12 season.
This darling ‘resolution calendar’ sent to us & designed by our website creator, Linseed Projects, brought me back to the reality of entering a new year.
I particularly love May, travel somewhere unexpected… perhaps an inspiration trip is in order? And August, my birthday month, couldn’t be more relevant: be on time. That’s one lofty resolution for this girl!
to the New Year!
Last week I traveled with Peter and his family to Staniel Cay in the Exumas. It was paradise: empty beaches, crystal waters, ham-sandwich picnics, and a yacht club with pina coladas so good I forgot about 40 degree NYC and all the work I left behind.
Staniel Cay is home to the famous Staniel Cay Yacht Club – a must-stop for boaters in the Bahamas. The cay’s stunning grottos (which we snorkeled into) were the backdrop for the 1965 007 classic, Thunderball.
I packed light: bikinis from Marysia Swim & a one-piece from Phillip Lim; my kindle; Sol Moscot sunglasses, and some Turkish towels … all I needed for this divine holiday break!
Thank you to Hank and Joanne and the SCYC for good sandwiches, great drinks, and serious relaxation!
Wow. We have been so busy, with hardly a moment to breathe. Fortunately, on Monday, I am headed here:
Staniel Cay in the Exumas
The past few weeks have been packed with design, preparation for pre-fall and fall, and a great trip to Chicago for mom’s birthday & an in-store visit with P.45 to usher in our resort collection:

In addition to all our recent travel and my loads of design work I’ve been shopping for the holidays and making some wish lists of my own!

Back to work … And then to the beach!
