I met Nicole years ago through mutual friends and have always loved her asthetic. For the past seven years she has worked for Band of Outsiders, where she serves as VP Marketing & Communications – a constant alongside designer Scott Sternberg as the brand continues to grow in leaps and bounds.
One of the most celebrated ceramic artists of our time, Dora De Larios’ body of work ranges from the small and intimate to the large-scale and impressive – every bit of it remarkable.Needless to say, when I began the process of curating my home store, her pieces were some of the first that came to mind. And when I had the opportunity to meet her, I was over the moon.
As mentioned yesterday, I have known Kate for a number of years – I met her sister Carly, whom I profiled over the summer, in high school and was introduced to Kate my my sister Maggie when they were at NYU together. I fell for Kate instantly – she was adorable, had amazing style, and was the girl who always had a knack for finding the best vintage, which is an enviable gift.
I met Gregory through friends when I first started my collection over ten years ago, and fell in love instantly. An amazing designer with a very strong point of view, he has been making beautiful clothing for two decades.
I met Michelle Smith through Caroline in my office – they both grew up in Southern Louisiana and reconnected when Michelle moved to Los Angeles. I featured her NYC home in a previous post, but wanted to also share a look inside her favorite place to get away from it all.
I met Claire through Yayo Ahumada, one of the amazing photographers that we work with. A self-taught chef and unabashed food enthusiast, she is the host of Food For Thought With Claire Thomas and works as a nationally recognized commercial director, food photographer, and writer, using her wildly popular blog, The Kitchy Kitchen, as an “experimental playground.”
I met Kelly years ago through one of our closest mutual friends, Ali. Since then, she has become a close friend as well, and I am lucky enough to see her often at all things Baby2Baby.
I met Carly in high school through Hayden, who I mentioned is like family. She is one of his closest friends, and years later, along with Hedi Gores, now business partners in the wildly successful endeavor that is Pressed Juicery.
I met Hannah Henderson, who together with her long-time partner John Moore opened General Store’s second, swoon-worthy outpost, during my first visit to the store.
Jessica de Ruiter’s less is more attitude is one that I admire – nothing in excess, simply the best of the best – and it manifests itself both in her wardrobe and home.

At home with Victoria Morris: step inside one of our favorite artist’s beautiful mid-century space and explore her favorite things.
I met Liseanne years ago through Kendall Conrad when we were doing a trunk show together in Montecito – and was instantly enamored. She has amazing style, makes gorgeous fine jewelry, and has the calmest, loveliest energy.
I met Charlotte years ago through mutual friends and we have stayed in touch ever since. I completely admire what she has built and the world that she has created – apart from her eponymous line of apparel and accessories, she has launched numerous successful collaborations in creating a remarkable brand that is distinctly her own.
I met Simone years ago when I hosted a baby shower for my very close friend Jessica, and later reconnected through Lauren Soloff and Beatrice Valenzuela. An artist, Parsons Paris-educated designer, personal stylist and private lifestyle concierge, Simone combined her many talents to form an incredible boutique gifting studio – which I recently featured – and has quickly established herself as one of the most trusted resources in inspired giving.
