Six hours away from New York City is a pristine universe with babbling brooks, hidden trails, endless lakes and mystical ponds. It’s the eco-blessed region of Lake Placid and Adirondacks.

The black and gray combination is versatile and the print is what makes this sweater playful, yet work appropriate.
I admit it, I’m a handbag fanatic and cannot resist a fabulous satchel on the crook of my arm whether it’s for work or play! I’ve trudged miles to sample sales of designers like Rebecca Minkoff, DVF and Deux Lux in New York to score the perfect arm candy at the perfect price!
