“Novelty basics” may sound like an oxymoron – but it is a great way to approach updating your “look” for a new season and maximizing your investment. While I maintain a tightly edited closet, there are four important essentials that I address at the beginning of each season: outerwear (coat/jacket/rainwear depending on the season), handbag, scarf/wrap and sunglasses. These items...

TRUST ME…..YOU’LL LOVE THIS: walk on the wild side

A stylish grand dame once shared with me, “My dear, every room should have a touch of blue, and every wardrobe a spot of leopard.” I have never forgotten her - or her quip! Glancing around my own closet, I spot a leopard belt that was my mother’s in college, a pair of leopard suede gloves from the 70’s, an icy leopard sequin scarf repurposed from my rehearsal dinner dress (an...

Of all the jewelry collections we have showcased in the shop over the years, it is no secret that Ann Lightfoot is one of my personal favorites. Not only does her aesthetic speak to my lifestyle, but her jewelry continues to resonate with Dovecote’s broad audience that ranges in age from 30-90+.

red orciani bags at dovecote

Sustainability can be luxurious!

I fell in love with ORCIANI during a trunk show we had at Dovecote in October 2018. October is my birthday month and I couldn’t help but treat myself to a new bag after following in LOVE with their bright red mini SVEVA handbag! This handbag was a bit of an investment for me and I bought it with the intention of stowing it away in my closet only to pull out for date night. To my surprise, I’m...

long sleeve clarice shirt in white


I love a great shirt. Whether classically tailored or more on the novel side, the key components for me are perfect fit and fabulous fabric. I maintain an edited stable of white shirts in my closet, and the pieces that carry over from season to season are those that fit the best, flattered the most, felt the most luxurious against my skin, wrinkled the least, and held up through a season of wear...
