Iomoi

Iomoi

I love items that you can make bespoke, custom, personalized, monogrammed, and allow you to differentiate yourself. Iomoi is my go to site for all of the above. These are my SY packing carryalls for when I travel. The set comes as a trio pouches and they’re great to organize your suitcase on the way to your destination and then do double duty as laundry bags en route home. www.iomoi.com

Locande Verde

Locande Verde

My absolute favorite spot in New York City for lunch is Andrew Carmellini’s Locande Verde. The ingredients are super fresh, the room is so rustic chic (it feels like a luxe bistro in Aspen) and their Sardinian sheep’s milk ricotta with sea salt, thyme, oregano and olive oil served with simple grilled bread is about the best bite on earth. A #spyluxe note is that they have one of the city’s chicest private dining rooms. www.locandeverdenyc.com

Branch Coral

Branch Coral

How divine are these Charlotte Olympia shoes? They’re sky high branch coral and a departure for the designer who we often think of for those adorable kitty flats. I put them in front of Farrow & Ball’s new Samphire wallpaper and voila. www.CharlotteOlympia.com www.Farrow-Ball.com

Smock Paper

Smock Paper

I discovered this fantastic artisan site called Smock Paper and they sell all sorts of letterpress items sustainably printed on bamboo paper. They also sell these stacking boxes that are just perfect to organize your desk or bookshelves. Or banish wrapping paper altogether, and give gifts this holiday season in a simpler way and just tie these up with a bow. www.smockpaper.com
