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.
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.
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.
Outside of the Worth Avenue area, there is much more to explore. There is The Breakers, which 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!

This is the first thing I saw when perusing the 50th anniversary issue of the Smithsonian magazine for April 2020. This eye-opening 10-page article (with spectacular photos) is titled, “The Ship in the Ice” and concerns a topic we’ve all been hearing about for years, e.g., global warming.
The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.
I have often found that when a person achieves incredible success – after a long struggle – the back-story is almost as fascinating as the achievement itself. That’s why I was interested in, yet another, Andy Warhol write-up that appeared in the May 2020 issue of the Smithsonian magazine.
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.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
