Locust Valley 2018

Locust Valley Reunion.  Swinging fun with my oldest friend Darlyne — and my children Jack and Clementine. So Suzy Says.  

Meg Braff

Meg Braff’s  whimsical wallpapers and fabrics will make any room sing.  I was fortunate to stay in a guest room at my dear friend Maria Cerminara’s home which was decorated with Meg’s gorgeous wall covering.  The room felt like a Four Seasons hotel in part because of the elegant addition of Meg Braff’s wallpaper which is a … Continue Reading


Reformation’s Geneva Dress features a plunging neckline, detachable belt and kimono sleeves.  Wear it now and through September.  So Suzy Says

Cocktail Ready

Hats and bows, two of my loves, are in one fashionable place; Leslie Dasch’s Dress for Cocktails.  Mix and match her collection of hats and totes with her glorious rainbow of interchangable bows to create  unique and chic accessories. They’re perfect for lunch – or any time. So Suzy Says.

Healthy Choices

Maria served me a yummy breakfast worthy of champions while I was her guest.  A ‘Jammy Egg’ with tomatoes and avocado served atop quinoa, flavored with Colavita Olive Oil and Goya’s Abodo seasoning which is available with and without pepper.  A great start to any day. So Suzy Enjoys.  

Corn Zipper

Kuhn Rikon Corn Zipper is the easiest way to enjoy corn on the cob — without that annoying cob. Thank you, Biddy and Allison for the tip.  So Suzy Says.   

Don’t Wuff It Down

Wolfing down food is not a good idea for man or his best friend.  The Dogit Go Slow Anti-Gulping Dog Bowl will help dogs eat slowly.  So Suzy Says.   

Adventurous Life

Madame Claude: Her Secret World of Pleasure, Privilege, and Power by  William Stadiem  is the riveting story of Madame Claude’s  exclusive “finishing school”  in post WWII Europe.  Born Fernande Grudet in Angers this poor Jewish girl transformed herself into the Madame of a wildly successful escort service.  Magnifique — Madame is still whispered about. So Suzy Says.
