Well, I have finally figured out what I am doing with my apartment. The fabric I found to work in my living room is Ralph Lauren’s Bay Island Indigo. It is already purchased and at my Mom’s house ready to sew. Picking this fabric was way more complicated than I ever expected. Too many choices and I switched colors midway through the process. Loving blue and white like I do, I decided to do my living room in those colors.
The panels will be on the sides of the creamy white ones I already have. A navy blue pom pom fringe trim will be sewn down the middle of the white ones to tie it all together. Still alluding me is a coordinating fabric to re-cover two chairs and then having some pillows made to match. My pretty pink and green pillows are being packed up and sent to my parents for storage. I love them so much and they were a small fortune, so I will bring them back somewhere down the road and use them again.
For my bedroom, I went with green! On a recent trip, I stayed at a friends house with Matouk Cove bedding in green and fell in love. Using this pattern for three European shams and a bed skirt will look great with my all white bedding and white tufted headboard.
For the panels behind my headboard covering my window, I found this Summer Hill fabric that matches. I ordered a sample and it just arrived…it will look awesome.
Not 100% sure of the exact timeline for this whole plan, but the sooner the better. It has been almost 4 years since I bought this condo!
Did I mention that I have an Ikea white chair still in parts needing to be put together? I haven’t roped anyone to come over and help me put it together yet..maybe this weekend lol.
It will get decorated,
Veranda is showcasing this beautiful Connecticut home that was designed by Victoria Hagan. It is such a great mixture of elegance, glamour and comfort. Using soft blues and neutrals, she mixed antiques with early 20th century pieces honoring the owners French heritage. The result is a warm, functional and very traditional.
Ready to move in,
My cool friend Hoby is poised to tackle the fashion world by storm, one pair of pants at a time. His brand, Preppy Pimp, is so fun and a must-see for any prepster who likes their initials on just about anything. Hoby has always worn crazy pants, but having a hard time finding any he liked, he started having them hand-made for himself.
This led to him designing his own fabric and designing his own font to create truly custom monogram pants…yes-MONOGRAM PANTS!! These adorable and festive pants are custom-made for clients with bespoke fabric with with your monogram. Color choices are are navy/light blue, navy/lime or navy/hot pink.
One of the first customers was Thom Filicia..looking great in red, white and blue Custom Pimps.
A lot of Dads are ordering Original Pimps for themselves and matching Petit Pimps for their children. So, so cute. Each pair comes with a custom label with the date and your initials. They also come in their own matching pouch.
Original Pimps retail for $385 and Petit Pimps for $195. Hoby is offering my peeps a 10% off coupon code. Check out http://www.preppypimp.com and use KP10.

Even though I reside in Miami, which is still experiencing summer-like weather conditions, I am coveting the monogrammed Burberry Cape that keeps popping up on fashion blogs. Last February, Burberry Prosurm’s creative director Christopher Bailey sent all the models down the runway at their show in their own monogrammed wool and cashmere capes, causing quite a stir.
Sarah Jessica Parker wore hers today and it hit the news…
Burberry sold out of these initially but now they are available for $1,395 including the monogram. They are also apparently monogramming their other capes.
Needing a Burberry KP,
I am loving this video that hit the internet today. It’s Anna Wintour unplugged. She answers 73 questions in less than 4 minutes. It’s super interesting and funny but the whole time I was waiting for her to scream at the guy. Check it out.
Vogue practically fractured my hand this month,
