A bit of a flashback Friday today — we certainly do have quite an archive now, and I think there are more than a few images that deserve a second look!

My brilliant friend, photographer Julio Gaggia created this rich photo of me at Bronson Van Wyck’s pop up shop at Overby & Dunn with an elegantly eclectic “Balmoral meets Arkansas” inspired “Highland Holiday” theme.

Nest Birchwood Classic candle.

I just adore this marvelous medley of tartan — it really does say holiday doesn’t it!? In fact I’m so caught up in this little Highland fling, I’m going all out to decorate my flat with a goodly amount of tartan in the mix as well. I’ll be utilizing a tartan throw for the table accompanied by a setting of Black Aves china and ruby crystal water glasses — the flat festooned with red and white striped amaryllis and paper whites galore, the Houdon busts draped with garlands, and of course there’ll be candles, NEST Fragrances Birchwood Pine Scented Classic Candles to be exact — these candles have a lovely blend of white pine, balsam fir and birchwood with base notes of rich musk and amber. And of course I’ll be sporting an array of tartans and velvet to complete the picture!

I trust that the rich photo (top) by the very talented Julio Gaggia will get you all in the holiday spirit! Celebrating the brilliance of Bronson van Wyck and the eclectic chic of Overbey & Dunn, I’m sporting a Tom Ford era Gucci navy velvet blazer and purple cashmere turtleneck, Paul Smith black watch tartan wool pants, Tom Ford blue and green silk pocket square, vintage Rolex and my fragrance is Creed Epicea. Not shown: my navy blue Gucci leather slip on shoes.
