The next “It” bag is Moynat’s Rejane. It’s stunning, chic and only available in Paris. This level of exclusivity makes waitlists and limited editions seem boring. While on my European vacation, I was fortunate to spend time with Mr. Ramesh Nair, the Creative Director of Moynat. But let me back up first: Personally, I find it difficult to walk into

A few years ago Joshua Dunkelman, who is running for Miami Beach Commissioner, used to bust my balls by asking if I was emulating that movie by disappearing overseas for months.

I threw my faux-Blonde locks in a bun with a John Rochas leather headband that I scooped up in London, a black Carven dress that I bought in Paris
Recently, Bal Harbour Shops has undergone major plastic surgery: nips, tucks, removals, expansions. It is the commercial epicenter for luxury goods, globally renowned as the “best shopping mall in the world.” I couldn’t agree more.
