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!

Last week we introduced you to the newly opened Hudson Yards and provided lots of basic, down-to-earth information. CLICK HERE for a fantastic video of the grand opening ceremony (sound on/full screen). This week we’re going to focus on the shops and restaurants you will find as well as “The Vessel” (New York’s answer to the Eiffel Tower) and “The Shed” (a performance and exhibition space that expands and contracts).
No matter where you are in the world today, it seems one cannot escape politics. As I do not want this post to be an oxymoron, my goal is to keep it on topic - politics in fashion?. It was not that long ago, I cancelled one of my previously beloved fashion magazines (and as you read this, it wasn't American Vogue). Without thinking twice, I cited the reason being that I was a subscriber to this magazine because it used to be about fashion, now it was about fashion and politics.
On April 15, 2019 a fire broke out beneath the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Since I had seen this magnificent structure in my early twenties I found this horrific news very upsetting. I was grateful that we had scheduled an outing to the recently opened Hudson Yards on the West Side of Manhattan. It was a welcome distraction because this creation of a “brand new neighborhood” was overwhelming. I have 10 pages of typed research notes that I plan to break down into bite-sized points to give you a quick overview of this astounding venture.
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.
