The Washington Winter Show

Over the past couple of years, I’ve come to develop this interest/passion/obsession with antiques (i.e. fantastic one-of-a-kind things I have no room for in the tiny place I call “home” up in DC). From vintage Hermès ties to prints from the early 1920s to LV luggage that’s older than my

50th Head of the Charles

“The Head of the Charles in Cambridge, Mass., is the great American crew event, athletically and socially. It occurs the second weekend in October; secondary schools and colleges send shells in all categories in the three-mile race up the Charles River. Drunken Preps line the banks and bridges at Harvard,

Rowing Blazers Book Launch

Last Tuesday, I attended Jack Carlson & F.E. Castleberry’s Rowing Blazers book launch at the new Ralph Lauren store on 5th Avenue in New York City.  The space was packed with over 700 invite-only guests sporting current – and past – rowing blazers from their respective clubs.  Seeing that the closest
