The Man Behind Society Social

I'm really so excited to introduce y'all to the man behind Society Social and My Cup of Te! Head over to Victoria's to see Alan in her popular series, "The Man Behind the Blog." He is characteristically quite reserved and not the biggest sharer (yes, we are complete opposites!!), so I relished reading his answers :) He has been unconditionally supportive in all my Society Social endeavors and 100% gives me entirely too much credit in the interview so only believe half of what he says.

The series is one of my favorites because you get to meet the significant others of so many talented women, many of who (whom??! I can never get it) I admire. Here are other interviews to check out while you're over:

Monday Giveaway and a Little Weekend Recap!

Hi long lost friends! I thought I'd make my return with a little Monday giveaway. My amazing friend Grace is hosting and she's giving one lucky reader a chance to win a set of all four of the Society Social booze totes. Head to the end of the post for the link!

I'd love to share our family vacation pictures soon (my brother is married!) but work has been a doozy with a ton of catch up so first thing's first! Meanwhile here are a few scenes from our first weekend back in the states.

Society Social in House Beautiful's "The Best"

My sweet friend Albertina's gorgeous Pagoda Trim Pillows, an exclusive for Society Social, are in this month's House Beautiful "The Best!" Alan, who is finally leaving the states to join my family and I in Asia (gosh, I miss him!), is hand carrying my issue so I can see this in person sooner rather than later. I am that. excited.

We've gone on a House Beautiful hunt before (you can read about how Alan and I found it in a little bodega in NYC :) and the thrill will never ever get old. I'm so humbled and honored! To celebrate, I'm offering 20% off the collection with code "housebeautiful20"-- happy shopping and happy 4th!

The Damsel in Dior's Mad Men Inspired Bar Cart

It is my most absolute delight to see my designs in real homes, stylish ones at that, aiding and abetting in the revival of cocktail hour and the increased consumption of the classic martini. Jacey (isn't she the cutest?) who pens one of my favorite style blogs, The Damsel in Dior, drew inspiration from Mad Men when styling her very own Sedgewick bar cart. I'm so honored to have such fabulous customers!

p.s. I'll take a gin martini. What will it be for you? :)
p.s.s. If you would like a bar cart of your own, you can sign up for the Sedgewick waitlist!

800 Square Feet & Fabulous

Interior Designer, Ashley Whittaker's, take on this 800 square foot NYC apartment is design perfection. I am just blown away by how she worked her small space- keeping in mind the flow of the rooms, incorporating multifunctional pieces, and being completely fearless in her use of color, pattern, and print. We only have our 400 square feet to work with and have been living in the finished space for just a few months, but I'm totally tempted to start over. Design is never done, right? Our lease comes up next year!

p.s. Keep your eyes open in this issue (!!!!!!) ;)
