One of my favorite options for the summer is this Halston Tiffany blue dress.  It is such a classic staple that flatters every figure and complexion; no wonder it seems to always find its way into my bag for weekend trips and vacations.

JC Notes: Kiawah Island

JC Notes

As much as I love life in the city, I still need time to recharge and relax…so that’s when I head out to the beach. My most recent trip was to the charming town of Charleston, South Carolina. To say that this historic city is undergoing an exciting renaissance of sorts is definitely an understatement.  I was enamored with the picturesque streets that captured the southern culture, enlivened with a mix of modern flare.

 This past Christmass, I received “The Perfect Hostess” by Maureen Daly (Dodd, Mead and Company, 1950), and it instantly became one of my favorite hostess gifts.  Not only does it look lovely on my bookshelf, but I was delighted with its nostalgic tips and funny notes (including the name of the original owner).

JC Notes

Every March, Texas’ self-proclaimed weirdest city puts on one of the country’s most comprehensive and innovative festivals.  While some head down SXSW for the music, some for the topnotch tech conferences, and others for the food, I have my own reasons.   I fly to Austin for the vintage!

JC Notes

My love of vintage clothing goes hand-in-hand with my love for antiquing.  In fact, when vintage shopping evolved from my favorite past time to profession of choice, antiquing became an even more important creative outlet for me. This week I talk about one of my most exciting finds: a set of antique Christian Dior houndstooth china.
