Of all the articles we enjoyed presenting, What to Wear to a Hunt Ball is one of our most popular. When a friend asked to find a dress for the Hunt Ball, our great pal, Darren Henault lead us to Badgley Mischka for a beautiful selection.   Traditionally women wore either white or black and long length to a hunt ball but through the years, the accepted color has become black.  It creates quite a spectacle on the

This week I chose items with Parents Weekend in mind. It is that time of year again when we make the annual trek to visit our children in College or Boarding School.

Love these boots!
“Just how many boots do you need?”  My well-meaning husband asks, when the boxes are spilling out of the closet.  Of course, I avoided the answer, but am sharing it here.  You need low heeled for every day wear, medium heel for sturdy style, wedges for chic attire, and high heels for evenings.  Booties or Knee Highs?  Your choice.  Lucky for us Tory Burch has a great selection in all styles
