Art & Style

Even though I’m on island to share my treasures  of clothing and accessories, I embrace everything this enchanting island has to offer. I delight in attending art shows that feature up and coming as well as established artists, learning more about sustainability and local food, listening to lectures on interior design, and watching the fantastic comedy shows.
Recently, Audrey Sterk Gallery  featured art by Kerry Irvine. Her prints are beautiful. Her designs would make amazing scarves that we could all wear.

The Nantucket Historical Society, dedicated to preserving the integrity of Nantucket’s historical buildings and monuments,  hosts a fundraising antique show annually.  My friends and I love to attend this event where we can view and admire the selection of art and antiques, all the while dining and dancing.

I look forward to the Island’s fundraisers where I inevitably run into clients and friends. I was delighted to see Jane Condon’s performances at The Dreamland several times this summer. She is a fabulously talented comedian who brought an entourage of female comics to join in the fun. After a night of hearty laughs we noticed we were all wearing my BLT cashmere.

In my few spare moments during the long, warm days of summer on island, I’m often at the farmer’s market collecting the freshest ingredients. I’ve prepared some of the most delicious meals ever for my friends and loved ones. It’s like my own episode of Food Network’s “Chopped!”

While at an art opening, I ran into Kathleen Hay, a world class interior designer, wearing a BLT mother-of-pearl neck piece she bought from me years ago. She still enjoys her treasures from BLT. It was wonderful to get a chance to see and hear about her many award winning interior design projects.

I caught up with Evelyn Copeland, who was wearing a shrug from my collection and shared that she has worn it often.  She finds it handy when there is a chill in the air – lightweight and easy to throw into her purse.  To prepare for an upcoming two month journey around the world, Evelyn asked me to help her put together a stylish, comfortable and practical wardrobe, and to pack everything she needs into one suitcase. I am happy to assist clients with their challenges in packing before embarking on a long journey.

For a wardrobe consultation or to view my collections of fun and wearable clothing and accessories, I am available by appointment on island through the month of September.

Want to see what new treasures I have even if you’re not nearby? We can use Skype or Facetime to put together a look. I can also assist you in putting together a weekend wardrobe, or an outfit for a special occasion. Give me a call at (917) 209-0516 to schedule an appointment or with any questions.

Always remember my three Golden Rules to dress by:
  1. Build Your Wardrobe with classic pieces.
  2. Liven Your Wardrobe with fun novelty items.
  3. Tweak Your Wardrobe with touches of color.

Feel good, and look even better!
