Market Finds

Thought you guys may want to see some of our fun finds at the NYC Gift Market! We loaded up on things with lots of texture, like burlap, rope and natural linen. We also liked lots of nautical things for Spring, like porthole mirrors, woven baskets and knots. Loved the sea-inspired table linens by Kelly Wearstler and soft blue pillows from John Robshaw that look like sea kelp.

Chris Benz Loves Savannah

This past fall my dearest friends Rebecca Gardener and Mimi Cay threw the most amazing Slim Aaron's inspired Engagement party for me and my now husband Dana. It was quite a sensational evening and to say the least stylish. In attendance, that evening was renowned designer Chris Benz. Benz, a graduate of Parsons has designed for Marc Jabocs and J. Crew. He launched his own line years ago which boasts a reckless preppy look. I am very flattered that Chris has used Savannah's incredible style as an inspiration for his 2012 fall runway show. "I'm obsessed with it, he said. It's such a strange, wonderful, haunting little town." Here are some photos of what contributed to inspiring Chris's newest collection. You can view his newest collection at Slim Aarons Inspired Photographer Adam... who took all of the stunning photos below!

Gorgeous table setting
Before the crowds. Mimi tried to put sharks in pool... didn't quite work out
