Unskilled Worker

Sea New York Resort 2020

Sea continues to be one of my all time favorite labels – clothes I wear season after season. I love the way New York-based designers Sean Monahan and Monica Paolini intersect polished, uptown femininity with…

Teressa Foglia Hats

I’m currently obsessing over Teressa Foglia’s unique straw and felt hats. Teresa, who just recently opened a second studio location in LA, launched her eponymous brand in 2017 after discovering a millinery course in the…
