Sweden in December is a winter wonderland. The deep blue skies, bright white snow and soft hazy light are magical. We spent most of the week bundled up in the country (hello -15 degrees) but couldn’t resist a trip to the city to see the Christmas decorations at Svenskt Tenn and my favorite church Riddarkyrkan [...]
Yup, we’re nerds. We admit it. We love Star Wars. So when Henry Hargraves of Williamsburg made photoshop magic with his wintry shots and Gothamist caught wind of it, we couldn’t resist posting. It’s not a blizzard in New York without an AT-AT roaming the streets (and so what if I still have my very [...]
After two feet of snow and countless snow drifts–we’re back! Safe travels to all those headed back to New York, and warm thoughts to all those steadfast shovelers in the five boroughs.

Sunday meant a trip to Westminster Abbey for a candlelight advent service. Amazingly, our friend Nico Muhly was helping out the resident organist [...]
We caught owner Jen Mankins all bundled up outside the Cobble Hill store before she jetted off to snowy Sweden–what a way to keep warm! Jen’s rocking a Mayle coat, lots of layers, and outrageous Christian Louboutin studded, pony hair leopard sneaks!
