I am thrilled to be hosting my first Trunk Show for Henri Bendel New York this week (beginning tomorrow, September 26th) in their Flagship store at 712 5th Avenue:
I landed in New York extremely early this AM (7:30) on the equivalent of the red-eye from Charleston, but it is nice to have a full day in New York, especially in this beautiful fall weather! My best friend met me for a quick coffee in Grand Central and snapped this photo of me at the big clock, our meeting point, which brings back lots of memories from my days in NY:
I’ll be debuting some of our brand new fall colors so stop by and see us for your Candy Shop Vintage fix!

Fall is upon us! As is the new Target/Phillip Lim Collaboration of which I managed to snap up the three awesome pieces below. Don’t you think they’d look cute with our Fall Elephants On Parade Necklace and Lucky Elephant Earrings?
Also, we just did an interview with Wine Awesomeness for their blog, Badassery which we will post when it is up. For those of use who know nothing about wine and just want to be told what to drink (or better yet, sent it every month), Wine Awesomeness is where its at. They also recently did a rosé collab with fashion photog Ben Watts. A fringe benefit of living in the South, your rosé season is extra long!
And next week we are at the accessories mecca of NYC – Henri Bendel. Who can resist their little striped bags? Come put some Candy Shop Vintage in yours next Thursday – Sunday. We’ll be there all day!
Finally, check out this pic of some of the LA Bloggers at NYFW on Clothes Horse NYC today. Amelia (second from right) rocking one of our one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and looking adorable as usual.

Summer – so lovely and so fleeting! Now that Fall, even one day in is already full swing – shipping orders to stores and planning Holiday events – I just wanted to pause for a minute before it all dissolves away into the mania of to do lists – and reflect on the wonderful moments I had this summer. Like standing on this dock in Watch Hill, Rhode Island:
And paying a visit to my jewelry factory one year later – with a one year old and an almost one year old jewelry line:
Moments like this, watching my daughter eat oyster crackers for the first time – pure joy:
Magical summer sunsets like this, captured at Evelyn’s Drive In in Tiverton, R.I. a favorite seafood shack:
Eating the BLO (Best Lobster Ever):
And finding the quintessential New England House in Newport, complete with a red door:
Or introducing old friends to new:
And rediscovering the magic of places like this:
From the sea to the mountains with these talented ladies (Kathleen Rivers, Allison Elebash and Sally Benedict):
It has been a wonderful summer. And just for giggles – remember trolls? Yup, still the same:
