Shopping, Dining and Exploring Palm Beach

While I was in Miami for Art Basel, I went up to Palm Beach. I had heard about Palm Beach but hadn't been there before; I didn't know what to expect. Well, I was pleasantly surprised! I loved what Palm Beach had to offer - it is its own oasis within Florida with its own personality.

Shopping

With West Palm Beach's CityPlace right across the bridge, you must stay within Palm Beach and explore the city's Worth Avenue. You have shops from Chanel to Tiffany & Co. to Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. There are a range of stores on this street and with charming little alleyways to explore that house so many more shops, many locally owned or with locations in NorthEast locations, you can spend a nice amount of time here.

Dining

There are many great dining options in Palm Beach. For this post, let's stay around Worth Avenue. For lunch, I recommend Ta-boo, which is the place to lunch in Palm Beach and is self-described as a "1941-vintage bistro matches a Continental-American menu with buzzy vibes & an active bar."

For dinner, there is the Leopard Lounge & Restaurant within The Chesterfield Hotel. In the evening, you may catch some live music and dancing with the locals dressed beautifully. It is a spot to enjoy the food and all that surrounds you.

Exploring

Outside of the Worth Avenue area, there is much more to explore. There is The Breakerswhich was founded in 1896. This oceanfront hotel was founded by Henry M. Flagler and is quite a gem to behold. Even if you do not stay here, come for a tour, a visit or a drink. It is a must when in Palm Beach.

 

Speaking of Mr. Flagler, you can also visit his Gilded Age estate - Whitehall, which is now the Flagler Museum. This 75-room mansion sits on the other side of the island. When it was completed in 1902, the New York Herald said that Whitehall was "more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world," according to the Flagler Museum.

While there, be sure to visit the Café des Beaux-Arts, which is  located in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion and enjoy some Afternoon Tea. While there, sip some of the Flagler Museum’s own Whitehall Special Blend™ tea. It is good!

 

Enjoy the trip and Happy Holidays!

P.S. Stay stylish in Palm Beach by wearing a blazer over an Adea Layering Top. You can always add some accessories to take you from day to night.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Are You Sleeping Well?

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.

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 contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
