The Peak of Chic comes to Gramercy Park

Jennifer Dwyer of The Peak of Chic fame was in town last week. Thomas and I invited her for drinks on Gramercy, where at long last we had the pleasure of meeting this great blogger.
She is  every bit the Peak of Chic, as well as, the quintessential lady through and through. She delighted us with her tales of buying couture in Europe and the shocking  tariffs that come with it and what life down south is like. We had to dash to catch a train ( I had to start to prep for a hospital benefit the following Saturday where I cooked for 70 guests) so sadly our time was limited, but I can't wait to get on her calendar for the next time she is in town.

On the topic of chic woman, there is a new biography on the iconic 20th century French interior designer and retailer Madeleine Castaing. From the little I have had time to read of it, the book promises to be a page turner. 
Note: As far as I know it's still only available in french. Don't despair, Proust didn't write this. It is not a daunting read.

I would love to meet her. The blogosphere is such a little word.
Madeleine Castaing is a wonderful book . She was an icon. I dream to be a new M. Castaing but it is still a dream even if before knowing all about her , my shop is a little " salon " where we drink tea , we talk about old painting and we sell antiques and curtains
