Mulberry & Vine

Mulberry & Vine

I happen to work in a neighborhood (lower Tribeca) that has long suffered from a lack of options for a healthy, natural fresh lunch. Enter Mulberry & Vine which not only addressed the lack of local farms to table fare it’s also #spyluxe chic! From organic smoothies in the morning to the best cauliflower with house made Sriracha at lunch I could not be happier. #spyluxebites www.mulberryandvine.com.

Gabriella Kiss

There are a few designers who create consistently simple, #spyluxe pieces that you can always identify as theirs. I have long been a fan of Gabriella Kiss who was using semi precious stones in a non semi precious way for some time. Opals, amethysts and rutilated quartz mix with diamonds and emeralds and they’re all stackable. In the end, they’ll always be classic which is what I love. www.gabriellakiss.com.
