Te Amo Tulum

And as all things must, our unforgettable week in Tulum has come to a close.

As you might imagine, one does feel more than a bit melancholy leaving such a beautiful place, but we’re feeling invigorated, and so with clear heads and a bright new outlook, we’re optimistically diving headlong into a NYC spring!

Big thanks go out to the friends that encouraged us to make this heavenly place our holiday destination (did I mention we’re already planning our return?).

I’m pictured here, poised for a last breakfast at Casa Jaguar, which serves fantastic food in a lush tropical jungle garden setting. I’m wearing a Cuban Guaybera shirt in white linen by Michael Bastian, white cotton shorts by Mario Matteo, Tom Ford “Cyrille” sunglasses and brown suede tasseled loafers, rock crystal pendant from Las Dahlias hippie Market in Ibiza, vintage “parabuntal” straw hat, Vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch and my fragrance is Coqui Coqui’s – Floplum.

George Smith Showrooms

While George Smith is perhaps best know for their gorgeous classic English-style upholstered pieces (see below), I’d like to point out that they are also my go-to destination for a wider array of home furnishings, and I use many of these lines when creating fine interiors for my clients. One of my favorites is Fromental which offers the most exquisite hand crafted wallpapers and fabrics based on classic British Style, but with a bit of contemporary London fashion twist.

Another great line is Best and Lloyd, a lighting company that has been in business since 1840, offering some rather glamorous fixtures in both modern and classic styles. I’m particularly fond of the “Oyster” chandelier photographed behind me (see above) and I’ve already placed one in a client’s super chic loft.

Smith also carries furniture lines by Posse Furniture, Julian Chichester, La Forge Francaise, as well as fabrics by Raoul Textiles to name just a few—all beautifully and seamlessly integrated into one sublime showroom.

Needless to say, having a resource with such great breadth in selection (and an incomparable team of sales associates to match) makes what I do a whole lot easier!

Dorothy Chitty

Chatting with Dorothy Chitty.

I had the great pleasure of getting together with my dear friend, spiritual advisor, and acclaimed sensitive, Dorothy Chitty this past week. Having first been introduced to her several years ago, Chitty has been a constant source of comfort and guidance for me, always there to help me sift through and understand challenging times in my life, and put me in touch with my own power and greatness.

I was first introduce to her by a mutual friend in London—Chitty was coming to NYC for a visit and our friend thought that perhaps I could introduce her to my circle of friends here. I was understandably hesitant to refer her to anyone without having experienced a reading myself, and so a telephone reading was arranged.

I was blown away.

We had never met, and she previously had known absolutely nothing about me—and yet she knew everything.

She started off by telling me that I have the most beautiful green eyes, she then went on to tell me that some health issues I was having were caused by stress—I’d been ailing, but had been told recently by all the best doctors that there was nothing physically wrong with me. She then went on to tell me all about my childhood, how it has affected me as an adult and then prescribed my best approach to healing. One hour with her was equivalent to a year’s worth of psycho-therapy—It’s no wonder that she has a global client list of Royals, rock and rollers, film stars, and major business tycoons.

Dorothy will be available for readings here in New York City this week. I would highly suggest one. Ring her assistant Nicky at 9177710075 to sort out a time. Alternatively you can book an appointment over the phone any time and contact her via her website dorothychitty.com.

Pictured above, I’m chatting with Chitty before my reading. Many revelations ensued—It seems its time for a What Is James Wearing book, and more television appearances are in the cards—she said that all the cogs are in place now to propel the machinery of super success. I can’t wait to see it all unfold.

I’m sporting a chartreuse and blue fair isle cardigan by Michael Bastian, a teal silk Russian floral print shirt, window pane plaid wool pant and a chartreuse python belt with silver double horse head buckle all by Gucci, cobalt suede boots by Pierre Hardy and my fragrance is Creed Erolfa.
