Even in the hot months, there is still a need for morning routines and hot drinks. Well, we've taken the hot drink and given if a fun summer spin. A little bit of fresh lavender - perfumed and aromatic - is added to a simple syrup and then poured into a latte for the ultimate in summer sipping.

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lavender
  • 1 cup hot, brewed black tea
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  1. Combine water, sugar and lavender in a pot over medium high heat. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Reduce to low and cook until sugar dissolves.
  2. Strain out lavender, allow to cool and transfer to a jar.
  3. Pour tea into a cup. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons lavender syrup into the tea.
  4. Place the cream in a blender and whir for 10 to 15 seconds until frothy. Pour into the tea.
  5. Serve hot.

Living Way “Below” One’s Income

February 20, 2020

I’ve never liked cheapskates. I once worked with a guy who – when we went out to lunch – would make sure he only paid for what he ordered. And when it came to figuring the tax he made sure the other person paid the extra penny. The result was that, instead of just “splitting the bill” there was a lot of bookkeeping and figuring going on. After awhile no one would go out with him.

The Museum of Modern Art: A $450 Million Upgrade

February 12, 2020 1 Comment

On November 1, 2019, I decided to visit MoMA on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues to see the final result of this stupendous project that opened for all to see on October 21st. Frankly, I was amazed at the number of people who showed up. After all, it was a Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm. People should be at work – or at school I thought. Or, was it because this was the day after Halloween? Obviously, I’m a bit out of it because MoMA was like Times Square on New Year’s Eve – but not quite. Everyone was very well behaved and incredibly focused and interested in the art.

The Movie: Downton Abbey

February 05, 2020

On Tuesday, October 8, 2019 – the first day of Yom Kippur – we headed out to our favorite Kips Bay Theatre (2nd Avenue and 31st Street) for a 6:20 pm showing of Downton Abbey. Kips Bay currently has a terrific deal: If one signs up for an “Insider” card (it’s free) you can see a first run movie at any time during the day or night on Tuesdays for $6.00 – which is pretty incredible. Or, paraphrasing The Godfather, I’d say, “That’s an offer we couldn’t refuse.”

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
