Book Of The Week: Windows at Bergdorf Goodman

One of my favorite things to do is window shopping!…. No! Not the type where you go looking for nice stuff to buy later (though I do like that as well!!!) I mean I love to look at how window shops are displayed…My favorite windows are the ones at Bergdorf Goodman in NY, Harrods, and Harvey Nichols in London and Hermès everywhere!. They all have a reputation for being the most inspiring and imitated concepts in the world…..I honestly believe that window display is a form of art by itself!!!…..

So imagine my excitement when I found this book…..The two design powerhouses behind the windows of Bergdorf Goodman, Linda Fargo, and David Hoey, shared their most inspiring creations in Windows at Bergdorf Goodman…...They put more than 100 illustrations and 55 photographs of some legendary window displays. I love that they show us what goes on behind the scenes with the team and their full-time staff of five and rotating cast of carpenters, puppeteers and incredible artists who come and go….. this is a fun coffee table book that I highly recommend.

The New Collar Trend!

Suddenly we’ve been seeing those Peter Pan collar necklaces everywhere!!! I am so in love with them and think that they are the perfect way to spice up any ensemble. Lanvin, Louis Vuitton and even high street stores like Top Shop offer them.

This one from LV is one of my favorites and is on the top of my shopping list!!! 😉

It seeks to engage new audiences in understanding the challenges and the solutions while encouraging them to take action to improve the lives of girls and women worldwide… As a mother, I ask you to please check it out!

A Cool Mom

Since mother’s day is tomorrow I thought Emmanuelle Alt (editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris) and her daughter Françoise deserve a post by themselves!!!! They are one of my favorite mother/daughter duos….I love this photo of them taken by Jak & Jil even though its an old one. Alt was wearing SS 2010 long boots from Isabel Marant and they looked amazing on her….and little Françoise was just too chic in her Burberry trench!


The GLOW is one of my favorite sites!!!… It gives a glimpse into the world of chic and fashionable moms….. I am always inspired by those women. I love some of their styling,  multitasking, and decor ideas!

I always talk about interiors and fashion here! But today I thought that I would share a few recipes that I’ve tried from them just for a change!

My kids love those salmon fish cakes but I add lemon juice, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and some seasoning to the potato mix!… I also have a no frying rule in my house so we just put the fish cakes in the oven!!!

I always use this recipe during Halloween! After we carve our pumpkins I purée the pumpkin and use it for this recipe…. (and I freeze the extra purée)

Whenever bananas get ripe I make this bread… the kids love it and so does their dad! 😉
