Sweater Collection

In designing our first sweater collection, I had a few things in mind— beautiful pieces you can wear day to evening, classic silhouettes with contemporary design details, a comfortable but stylish fit, and 100% natural fibers.  I called on a close friend who is an expert knitwear designer, Sarah Fifield, and brought her my inspirations- yarn swatches, design details such as the browband of the polo horse and silhouette ideas. We worked together for over a year designing "from scratch" to bring you this collection. We have created what we feel are staples for your wardrobe, but staples with incredible style, top quality, unique details and the softest fibers of 100% pure baby alpaca.  We hope you love them as...

Springtime at the Ranch

  In Northern California, spring means rolling hills carpeted in long, verdant grasses with fiery orange California poppies waving in unison with the wind.   We finally managed to capture our latest spring/summer collection in this breathtaking landscape for the first time out at the ranch. We had a crew in for the photo shoot from England and L.A. I planned to cook for everyone showcasing the fresh, magnificent bounty of Marin County.  Joining us were friends from our local polo club and other dear-to-me souls I rarely see due to my head being so buried in work and raising children.  I love to cook and it is never a chore, but little did I know our water pipes would break...

Windsor Charity Polo

In some ways, Florida feels a million miles away from California but in others, it feels just like home. My rendezvous in this palm tree and sea breeze paradise kicked off with the Windsor Charity Polo Cup in Vero Beach, Florida, one of our favorite events. Co-chaired by the Honorable Hilary M. Weston and Salvatore Ferragamo, Windsor is recognized as a premier charity polo match of the season, featuring top-level international play and, of course, incomparable style. There is a wonderful familiarity with our friends and customers here and, this year, we were thrilled to have our new luxury canvas logo tote as the featured VIP bag of the event. We were pleased to assist in raising money for The...

2017: Reflecting

2017 was a powerful, dynamic year.  We weathered fires in California and the Northwest, floods in Houston and the Southeast and massive political storms in D.C. and throughout our country.  The forces that be certainly were efficacious in keeping us on our toes!  With each challenge surmounted, we amass strength to rise above what lies ahead. Personally, in my own journey as an entrepreneur and single mom, I have learned to be adaptive and the word "pivot" is status quo and has been for a few years.  I have learned not to sweat the small things, but I am grateful for the big and the tiny. In looking back on 2017, I'm proud of our small team and grateful of our...

Entertaining in Season

Throughout my childhood in the South, the change of seasons was always punctuated by what was being harvested in the garden and the choice of fresh seafood and wild game available in certain months. Hence, any time the weather begins to change, it triggers many memories and aromas of gathering, cooking, and celebrating with family and friends in cadence with the season. This time of year is one of my favorite times for cooking as I have frozen end of summer tomato and pepper harvests and have gathered exciting West Coast fall favorites such as figs, persimmons, pomegranates, nuts, and avocados. Our proximity to the wine country and Napa, Sonoma, and Marin cheeses and wines gives our menu perfect and beautiful local...
