In New York City, ready to take on the madness of Fashion Week. Here are my picks for the season.

TO STAY

There’s no place like home, but The Carlyle is as close as it gets to home for me. The service here is consistently impeccable and the famous Bemelmans Bar is a great place to meet for drinks with friends after a long day’s work.

FAVORITE LOOK

This look from my Fall 2013 collection is versatile, feminine and easy to wear. Black is a staple of mine in the Fall and I always feel good in lace.

This one of a kind Sevan Bicakci ring is sentimental to me because it was a gift from my husband for our 18th year anniversary. We found it while on a trip to Istanbul made by one of the most talented jewelry designers today.

CARRY EVERYTHING

This Celine box bag is the perfect size. It fits all my essentials (phone, camera and sunglasses) and is easy to dress up or down. It was a treat to myself and I love the luxurious texture of the python.

SECRET WEAPON

My dear girlfriend gave me this hydrating lipstick in “Ava” from her Jouer Cosmetics collection. I’m in love. I think the red lip is a strong Fall trend and an easy way to add instant glamour to any outfit.

MUST HAVE

The black lace bootie is one of my favorite shoes from my Fall collection. It’s a cross between a bootie and a sandal and adds just the right amount of sexy edge to my Fall wardrobe.

NICE VISUALS

Pink peonies always put a smile on my face. The color brightens my day and lightens any room. When I’m in New York, my showroom always has fresh peonies, they are my favorite flower.

SWEET SCENTS

I love the sweet floral scent of my signature “Champagne” candle. It instantly puts me in a good mood. I take the votive size on my trips to New York and the scent reminds me of home.
