How to Build a Better Bar Cart



Your guide to building a bar cart, just in time for the slew of holiday parties you are sure to attend (these items make fabulous host/hostess gifts!) and host.

The sleek, simple design of the libations bar cart from Crate and Barrell is a great base to build upon. Also check out the Beckett bar cart via William Sonoma, available in gold or silver finishes.

Finally, even more of my choices for a timless bar cart, available via my latest selection of Guest Picks via Houzz!

Happy mixing, shaking, and stirring!

Is everyone stuffed post Thanksgiving?

I am officially overstuffed, been doing nothing but cooking, dining, and indulging in cocktails. Well, maybe a little shopping too.....

Last weekend, I had the chance to meet up with some lovely bloggers, talk purses, auctions, fashion, and kick back a few more cocktails over my foraged mushroom fritatta (seriously, Mistral has to have the best brunches in the city, I have yet to have anything not stellar there!). I wore this low-key outfit out- my new Stuart Weitzman moto boots, Koral denim via National Jean Co., and the most comfortable, beat up, worn in David Bowie t-shirt ever. Lots of loose layers so I could indulge at brunch, you get the pattern.

It was also the perfect chance to test drive the pretty Longchamp Balzane, in advance of the event I am hosting at Neiman Marcus December 6th (where you will have a chance to win a Longchamp tote of your own, a $600+ value!). The perfect tote for shopping, brunching and walking around the city. C'est magnifique.
