Kate Spade

Kate Spade

The whimsy of Kate Spade was what made her so popular when she founded her company and Deborah Llyod, the brand’s creative director, has stayed true to their cheeky chic roots with a new shop in East Hampton. I particularly love a well appointed bar cart and they’ve styled an adorable one at the new outpost.

Byron at the Surf Lodge

Byron at the Surf Lodge

Readying for summer means a few things and if you’re Hamptons bound one of those is making some great reservations. Our friend Brian McGrory is the owner of Byron which sits right on the water in Montauk at the Surf Lodge. Aside from the gorgeous tiki covered roof and locally designed dishes there’s a private dining room that seats about ten and is down on the beach. Book it and let the mini lobster rolls be served! www.thesurflodge.com/Byron

Bridgehampton Florist

Bridgehampton Florist

As we gear up for another season in the Hamptons my friends always ask me for recommendations, which I love to give. One of the very best florists out east is Bridgehampton Florist. I received these radiant orchid hued roses which miraculously lasted for two weeks and the depth of color is stunning. After all, it is Pantone’s color of the year. www.TheBridgehamptonFlorist.com

Ladurée

Ladurée

The highly anticipated Ladurée has opened its lovely doors in Soho. Entering is akin to taking a step back in time. The front room sells their classic macarons amongst other delicate deserts and the back dining room is like a Parisian atelier with a garden. The tables are tough to get but #spyluxe once you have them. www.Laduree.com

The Pierre

The Pierre

The hand-painted mural in the landmarked Pierre hotel is one of the most #spyluxe spots in the city. Step off of Fifth Avenue and you’re transported into an old world space that’s one of the very few left of it’s kind in New York City. It will always hold a special place in my heart as my parents were married there. www.tajhotels.com
