Some of the fabulous new designs we have in are from the good folks at Boatman Geller, including the Ashley Plaid in Pink:
If seeking something more masculine, the Ashley Plaid is available in a sophisticated blue palette. Perhaps you would prefer the Espadrille Nautical stripe brightening your table?
This jaunty pattern also comes in the Espadrille Preppy Stripe (below), or the Espadrille Bright Stripe.
Our favorite new styles just might be the updated initial plates, like the Repp Tie in Cherry/Navy:
At a baby shower the whimsical Confetti Pink is fun for a little girl, but it is also offered in blues for a baby boy. (And ideal for grown-up boys and girls in your circle of friends and family!)
Frankly, there isn’t a one of these we don’t just adore as a hostess gift, or a delightful personalized present on any occasion.
Because we want you to enjoy our growing preppy dish collection and enjoy a bargain at the same time, we are offering our treasured readers a 10% discount on the Plates and Platters Collection! Simply enter DISHDEAL at checkout to receive the more favorable pricing. We will keep this special discount in place until midnight on the 18th.
And don’t forget to enter the Giveaway before midnight Thursday (the 17th), we will draw a name and announce a winner on September 18!
Next, last night’s big party at Saks, a gala thrown by Anna Wintour/Vogue, and Charlize Theron. The occasion was a public celebration of the retailer’s newly renovated third floor.
We love the easy elegance seen in the photo of Oscar de la Renta & Ms. Theron. Also attending the party, Dylan Lauren in a vibrant frock we shall categorize as today’s Pretty in Pink.
Gossip Girl star Blake Lively looked lovely in a sleek blue dress.
Also on hand and woefully underdressed, Ms. Lively’s costar and IRL (In Real Life, yes? We feel très cool using this acronym.) romantic interest, Penn Badgley.
It was a very busy night for the Gossip Girls and Guys, as there was another function to attend, this one in honor of the Gossip Girl-inspired collection at Target from designer Anna Sui.
And if that wasn’t enough partying for the G2 set, co-star Leighton Meester enjoyed a screening of the Sundance Channel’s fashion series “The Day Before“. The four-part special focuses on Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler as their upscale label preps for Fashion Week. Joining in, socialite and fashionista Lauren Santo Domingo.
