Back from the Bahamas!

We’re back from the Bahamas and I can’t wait to share all of our adventures, but first I must do a post on The Young Fellows Ball at The Frick which I had intended to do the night before our departure – so we’ll be making a very special post on the ball at The Frick on Monday followed by my beautiful Bahamas holiday posts throughout the week!

In the meantime just a tease…

Having had the great pleasure to spend some time with the divine India Hicks in Harbour Island, I’m pictured here on the porch of her absolutely perfect Cricket Pavilion where we spent several spectacular days.

I’m wearing a smashing straw hat with black gross grain ribbon trim which I absolutely had to have from India Hicks’ super chic boutique,The Sugar Mill, palest pink cotton safari style shirt by Gucci, shocking pink cotton jean cut pants by Dior, silver chain link belt by Gucci, black leather sandal/espadrille by Christian Louboutin and my fragrance is Creed Royal Water.

The Viceroy Miami (part 5 – parting thoughts)

Our post today wraps up a fab mini holiday at the sumptuous Viceroy Miami. Quite honestly we were a bit uncertain about staying in downtown Miami versus South Beach, but I’m so happy we decided to branch out and try something different. We had planned to visit (and in a few cases revisit) some of those great Miami sights like the Viscaya, and The Fairfield Tropical Gardens and then maybe to pop over to South Beach to grab lunch at the Viceroy’s sister hotel, The Tides – as it turns out we were just so pleased with the Viceroy that we mostly succumbed to the luxury of doing nothing! We did manage to get ourselves over to the 28,000 Sq foot Spa located at Icon Brickell and enjoy a few very soothing beauty treatments, though this cannot really be considered “going out” as the spa is part of the ten glorious resort acres that comprise the Viceroy Miami. It’s still nice to know that should one want a bit of local flavor its all just a few minutes away.

Leaving Miami actually felt a bit like disembarking after a grand ocean liner cruise – so much of our amazing vacation experience was contained within the Viceroy and its beautiful surrounds. Perhaps on our next visit we’ll venture out a bit more. Or maybe not! Either way options abound!

CASA KIMBALL …quintessence of luxury

It’s rare that one comes across a place that is so perfect on every level – The fortuitous collaboration between my super chic friend Spencer Kimball and his brilliant New York based architect Jasmit Rangr produced just such a place and it’s called Casa Kimball.

Dramatically situated on a cliff on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, every vantage at this private villa celebrates the great unobstructed expanse of the Dominican ocean, sky, and rugged coast. Clad entirely in local “Coralina” stone of varying textures Rangr strikes a flawless balance between his ultra modernist International Style inspired design and a firm connection to the natural splendor of the site.

Luckily for all of us, when Kimball is not in residence, he has made it possible to rent Casa Kimball – imagine something like having your own private Amanresort, complete with eight full suites – and all with mind blowing views of the ocean and an incredibly attentive staff. Oh and lest you yearn for more familiar sights and sounds, there is an absolutely state of the art audio setup, and media center. Needless to say Casa Kimball makes taking your getaway experience to that quintessential level a completely doable thing – visit their site to book.

Casa Kimball simply exudes luxury in every sense, and I felt quite the James Bond (pictured above), with strains of Madonna’s latest, “Celebration,” in the background seductively ushering in cocktail hour – I’m wearing a Yves Saint Laurent black cotton poplin shirt with band collar and flap pockets, white cotton/linen sateen flared leg pants by Gucci, black leather braided belt also by Gucci, KVA sunglasses by Oliver Peoples, and black leather sandals by Christian Louboutin.

I think I’ll make a few more posts devoted to Casa Kimball, and I hope you’ll indulge me – Its just this place has us at WIJW pretty seriously jazzed.
