Happy Memorial Day Weekend

So, I’m continuing my jetsetter lifestyle and flying off to Charleston, SC for the weekend.

I’m going there to visit my friend “Sabine” who moved from the UWS to Charleston a year ago. I still miss her horribly, and use subtle psychological tricks to try to convince her to move back here. Unfortunately she is enjoying her beach and backyard and mild climate, so I’m not sure I’ll ever get her back to the gritty city.

Sabine absolutely refuses to even let me use my Blackberry when in her presence (I have a history of Twitter addiction) so there is no chance at all she’ll support me blogging from her back porch. Once again, Upper West Side Style will be left here to rot for a few days.

So, I’m going to enjoy some Southern-style style for the weekend. And hopefully a huge plate of biscuits and gravy.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!


Burberry Brit Now Open On Columbus

I hate it when I miss the opening day of a new store! But thank goodness that RackedNY has a staff to figure these things out. I’m going to copy their post here:

“The British sometimes have the reputation of being reserved and understated, so perhaps that explains yesterday’s completely under-the-radar grand opening of the Burberry Brit on Columbus Avenue. Read More

I’m Seeing Sex and the City 2 Today

This might sound braggy and smug, but I’m going to go ahead and say it anyway: I’m going to a pre-screening of Sex and the City 2 tonight! (The movie officially opens on May 27).  It’s not cool to admit that you want to see this movie, because the hype and branded products surrounding it have been ridiculous. But I am sort of excited.

Which Dress is Better??

Neutral and feminine Club Monaco vs strapless J.Crew

This weekend I’m going to a wedding in Bermuda. Yes, I’m very excited to go to Bermuda, despite the ominous looking weather forecast. No, I’m not worried about the Bermuda Triangle. Maybe I should be.

What I’m most worried about is which dress to wear. It’s an evening wedding on “the croquet lawn” followed by a reception in some tents. I’m assuming they’re nice tents and that I should wear shoes and won’t need bug spray. At least I hope so, because I’m not the camping type. Unless there’s a spa. Read More

Weekend Photo Album: I Didn’t Leave the UWS

I loitered around a bit waiting for them to play, but no luck (Central Park near 96th)

What a gorgeous weekend here in NYC! I spent a fair amount of time lounging around Central Park and running some errands all over the UWS. There were some stylish moments.

My favorite was when MILo and I walked into the Club Monaco on Columbus (ostensibly to look for a blazer for him). As I walked in, I was greeted by a lovely young lady who offered me a glass of cold white wine. At the exact moment the glass hit my hand, my gaze was drawn to the most dazzling light-weight silver knit infinity scarf. It was like the heavens opened and shined a light down on it. Dear Readers, I purchased it. Gorgeous! Here are some others: Read More
