As always, a morning with Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly on Good Day New York is entertaining and we barely get through our segments because we’re having so much fun. I was on this week talking about great gifts to personalize and monogram and both Rosanna and Greg fell in love with everything. The viewers lived it too! TV feedback is amazing. Watch it here to see what I love http://www.myfoxny.com/story/24135042/personalized-gift-ideas
There are some boutiques that simply change the way you shop. Who wants to peruse online when you can visit Edon Manor in Tribeca, NYC. The store is breathtakingly beautiful (which, of course makes it #spyluxe) and their shoes ranging from Alaia and Acne to Jil Sander and Julian David (and newcomer Gianvito Rossi) are so artfully displayed. They have all the trimmings meaning sunlgasses, shoes, belts and bags and their owner does a top notch edit of the collections When I walk in I absolutely love everything because it is truly curated. www.EdonManor.com
Designer Heather Chontos has this beautiful site that I stumbled upon called Milk Farm Road. Most of the items that she sells have a super crafty vibe to them but not of the type I would attempt to pull off myself. She makes charming works of art, hand crafted garlands and these super cute hand painted napkins in all sorts of colors like blue and pink. #spyluxeinteriors www.milkfarmroad.com
Nestled on a tiny block in New York City called Commerce Street is the ultimate new omakase restaurant called Sushi Nakazawa. Make a reservation at the sushi bar and let their chefs guide your meal. Just their selection of tuna alone (shown here) is impressive. www.SushiNakazawa.com.
If you feel fed up year after year looking for luxe ornaments and turning up empty look no further than Hermès. Their equestrian horse heads made out of their famous leather (yes the same ones they make Birkins out of) are a whimsical item from the French fashion house. www.usa.hermes.com.
One of the greatest Hamptons insider moments I have had of late is working directly with Hampton Coffee roastmaster Dwight Amada on a bespoke brew. At their new Southhampton roastery we worked with exotic beans and produced a hand roasted small batch of coffee that we then had a barista serve us. Their coffee is divine and you can order it online www.hamptoncoffeecompany.com.
