Adornment :: Retro Modern

While at the office, in addition to following proper dress code—showcasing your personal style is an absolute must—you also need the proper "office supplies" to increase productivity, and, according to Marie Claire, those include delicate watches, typewriter-case framed purses, and cocktail rings the size of paperweights. And yes, I completely agree.

Style :: Business Class

Netbooks and laptops, smartphones, and tablets have extended our 9-5 workday to: OPEN 24/7, and have made themselves a daily necessity as those dinner dates right after work double as meetings for which there are documents to review, conference calls to join and the 99 emails still awaiting a reply—ASAP; during this non-stop handling of business we must remain calm, cool and chic as we tow our myriad devices, with an oversized clutch as the fashionably fitting and simple solution.

Décor :: White Out

There's something enchanting about white on white interiors, and while a sparsely decorated all white space can seem sterile and uninviting, details, like a mixture of textures—silk curtains, faux fur rugs, linen throw pillows—instantly create a warm and inviting interior; and, quickly and easily transform the space with pops of color via art, flowers, vases and the like.
