I will never tire of paying tribute to three of my favorite things: fantastic frocks, wonderful wine, and glamorous getaways. This week's edition is inspired by France. Très magnifique!
The Dress: Catherine Malandrino Pointelle Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress ($345)
French designer Catherine Malandrino is a master at creating feminine and flirty clothes that have a bit of urban edge. I love the playfulness that the multi-colored hem adds to this classic little black dress.
The Drink: J.J. Vincent Pouilly Fuisse Cuvèe Marie Antoinette Vincent 2010 ($21.95)
100% Chardonnnay, this charming white wine hails from the Burgundy region and is a tribute to the winemaker's mother. Fruity and light, the 2010 Cuvee Marie Antoinette has notes of peach, apple, and vanilla - a very chic sip!
The Destination: La Réserve Ramatuelle (St. Tropez)
Just minutes from the village of St. Tropez, La Réserve Ramatuelle is a cliffside hotel boasting some of the best views of the Mediterranean; the entire sea-facing exterior is made up of floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize exposure and fill rooms with natural light. The property also has a 13-room spa that offers an exclusive La Mer treatment that was created by the acclaimed beauty brand for the hotel. La Réserve Ramatuelle reopens April 1 with expanded boot camp offerings - a five-night personalized program encompassing yoga, Nordic walks, invigorating spa treatments, and healthy, low calorie cuisine. The Boot Camps are offered select dates in April, May and June with rates starting at 2700 euros per person including accommodations. Minimum four persons per program.
