  • Nantucket: Better Known as "The Grey Lady"

    It's live from the Grey Lady this week, and Bonnie is buzzing around the island of Nantucket. It's 33 miles from Cape Cod, and there's much activity going on here!

    This week starts off with the 22nd annual Nantucket Film Festival, June 21st through the 26th. The festival features over 70 films from all over the world, with many of the screenwriters, directors and actors on island to talk about the films. Check it out at www.nantucketfilmfestival.org.

    On Saturday June 24th at 10 am, there is an amazing charity event for A Safe Place. It's a fundraiser event in which men walk in women's shoes to raise awareness about violence against women. It's called "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" - are you man enough? It should be quite an event!

    Men walking in women's shoes - a sight to see! Men walking in women's shoes - a sight to see!

    There's an abundance of museums on island worth exploring. It's a great activity for all ages. There's the Nantucket Whaling Museum, The Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum, The Nantucket Life-saving Museum, and the Maria Mitchell Association.

    One classic feature of Nantucket's landscape are the many beautiful and historical lighthouses to explore, and there are tours of the oldest house on island, which was built in 1686. It's just a fascinating place!

    Raven's Walk is another great Nantucket adventure. A gal will take you on a guided tour of all the haunted houses on the island, and tell you the stories of who lived there and how they died. A fun and mysterious evening walk through the cobblestone streets of Nantucket.

    Learn the haunted history of downtown Nantucket. Be intrigued by the haunted history of the town of Nantucket.

    There are over 82 miles of pristine beaches on the island. With shells and sand and wave action that varies from one side of the island to the other, you're in for some breathtaking views.

    Dress it up, or down - there are beaches all over town! Dress it up, or down - there are beaches all over the island!

    The island is only 14 miles long by 3.5 miles wide, but there is so much to see! Thirty-five miles of bike paths cover the island to give you the opportunity to get up close and personal with nature, see the beauty of the island, and keep the traffic level down. I highly recommend it!

    You're sure to see window boxes full of flowers on your bike ride. You're sure to see window boxes full of flowers on your bike ride.

    There are so many farms developing on the island that it's becoming a sustainable island. The food is so fresh and delicious. The farm tour at Bartlett's Farm enables you to pick your own strawberries and tomatoes. What fun!

    Good eats and tasty treats on island! Good eats and tasty treats on island!

    On the island, there are hundreds of artists who reside here year round. Due to their presence, ACK has developed The Nantucket Artist's Association. During the summer there are exhibitions weekly. Local galleries and antique dealers are willing to share some of Nantucket's richest history through their beautiful objects of art.

    Always a beautiful display of local talent at the Artists Association of Nantucket. Always a beautiful display of local talent at the Artists Association of Nantucket.

    Whether you're lucky enough to come to this beautiful little island off the coast of Cape Cod called Nantucket, or you're down in Southern Florida enjoying the seashore there, remember that it's all about wearing beautiful lightweight clothing, natural fibers, beautiful colors, and being stylish.

  • The Nantucket Project

    What an incredible journey! This year’s Nantucket Project brought in the best and the brightest writers, politicians, artists, and world leaders to the island of Nantucket for a whirlwind week that was certainly a meeting of the minds.

    It was fabulous to hear so many successful people tell their stories. Norman Lear, creator of All in the Family, The Jeffersons and Good Times, took us through his groundbreaking career in television. At 94 years old, he is still producing: He just wrapped a 13 episode show for Netflix that premieres January 2nd. It’s a cuban version of One Day At a Time, starring Rita Moreno. I can’t wait to watch – she’s been a client and a friend for years!

    Acclaimed actor Paul Giamatti, known for his work in Sideways, the HBO series John Adams and more, is currently traveling the country with his project called Theater of Wars. He and his fellow actors are performing Greek Tragedies for veterans all over the United States.

    Another voice taking the stage was two-time Olympic gold medalist Hope Solo, the best goal-keeper in the world. She now has a new goal: fighting for equal pay for women. Monica Lewinsky is an anti-bullying ambassador, focusing her activism on preventing cyberbullying. Seeing so many strong women gave me such a thrill for the future.

    For all the inspiring women, there were certainly hard-working men as well. Tom Scott is the man who made it all happen, and it was such a joy to meet the founder of the Nantucket Project. Deepak Chopra was on hand to help us all harness our chi and align our chakras, representing a voice for alternative medicine. Gordon Gund startedFoundation Fighting Blindness, dedicated to helping those who are losing their site. Through his research he has been able to reverse the blindness of seven children worldwide, and one of them was interviewed live at the event! The eyes of the audience were as wet as the coastal weather.

  • One Accessory, Five Looks

    While you are still enjoying your late summer adventures, I want to share one of my very important travel wardrobe secrets with you…

    My advice is to pick just one very special accessory, and choose multiple ways to utilize it, which will enable you to avoid overpacking.

    To demonstrate this principal, I have chosen a one of a kind silk shantung wrap. It is made with black and copper taffeta with hand-painted touches and a large gingham print.

    You need to start with your basic black separates: A tee top, slacks, a skirt or a simple dress.

    It is essential to have a variety of jewelry pieces that can add a little pop, and don’t require a lot of room in your carry-on.

    Rather than weighing your suitcase down with gemstones, opt for lighter wearable art pieces made with treasures from the sea.

    Nee Guinea pyrene shells, enamel-dipped coral, and hand-carved Mother-of-Pearl.

    As a final addition I’ve selected a beautiful belt made with hand-cast polished pewter, onyx and horn inlay and a custom made leather-netted strap. It’s adjustable to any size, so it fits any body type.

    The versatility of this accessory allows me to transform your simple pieces into dynamic, unique, one of a kind looks that can take you through an entire week, never looking the same way twice.

    Everyone has their wardrobe basics. It’s my job to transform your clothing options with touches of color and one of a kind accessories.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you. Give me a call at (917) 209 – 0516 or email bonnie@bonnieroseman.com to schedule your personlized appointment.
