You must be Jamaican because Jamaican me crazy!!

With new stylish hotels and resorts on the rise, it is no wonder that Jamaica is getting a Jamaica - over! Personally, I've always been a fan of the island for one reason - the singularity of the Jamaican culture. Beautiful beaches and interesting topography notwithstanding, the Jamaican people truly define the richness and vibrancy of the island. 

So break out your old UB40 CD, grab a rum punch and...

EBTT- Holiday Recipes

Paige's favorite Thanksgiving EBTT (everything but the turkey) sweet and savory dishes; some old, some new, some tried and true...gobble, gobble! These dishes are so great, you can serve them throughout the holiday season!

Jewelry Care

Recently, InStyle Magazine asked me to share some insider tips on storing and caring for personal jewelry (check out the blurb  in the October issue!)  The simple but fool proof  methods shared below have been mined from my own experiences, those of friends and accessory junkies. I hope that they are as good for you as they were for me  -  or at least help you get organized! Personally, I'm...

Let's get mixing!

I organized a dinner party this weekend and my friend complimented me on my eclectic music selection. I decided to dedicate a blog post to music and to share some of my favorite playlists.

Creating the perfect playlist is crucial for a dinner party because it sets the ambiance and the mood for the evening. I typically choose lounge, relaxing music and I enjoy latin rhythms. If there's dancing involved, I...

Lights, Camera, Action!

Not sure what to add to your Netflix queue? This week, Paige has given the seal of approval to a few of her current favorite films. This diverse selection will make you laugh, think, create and they will definitely inspire!

What we're reading...

Calling all book worms!  Now that summer is officially over, we're looking forward to those crisp fall days when we can cozy up with a good book. Check out what is on our reading list this fall...



A Visit From the Goon Squad - by Jennifer Egan

"Out My Window"


Look no further! We have your new favorite coffee table book (which will inspire all kinds of conversation!) Gail Albert Halaban, an uber talented photographer (and one of Paige’s dearest friends) has been photographing city dwellers peering into their neighbors’ windows for years (with their consent, of course!) Gail began this project by wanting to see the whole city…and the only way to do that was to...

Eureka!


Greenport L.I. gets a serious dose of boho chic with the opening of Eureka, a new pop up store specializing in drool-worthy beach clothing, home products and accessories from around the world. Furthermore, the beautiful white washed walls are all adorned with landscape photographs by mega photographer, EJ Camp ( www.ejcamp.com).


          ...

Guess who's coming for dinner?

 

Nothing says summer more than an intimate outdoor gathering of friends, delicious food and some wishful drinking! 



All of the ingredients were local from the North Fork of Long Island. 



Perfect setting: 

The best laid plans for a dinner...
Day Tripper

  

"Creativity is never revealing your source"  - Coco Chanel

 

In homage to Coco I will not reveal my exact source, but I will however gladly admit to an annual trek up to Beacon, New York where I mine much of my design inspiration: the D.I.A. Art Foundation.

Camp's in!

  

EJ Camp, named "The High Priestess of Polaroids” by New York Social Diary, has been a fundamental part of my core group of friends, not to mention one of my muses, for almost a decade.

NYC Mother's Guide

 

In honor of Mother’s Day (let’s face it, every day is really mother's day) I have put together a list of some of my favorite spots to frequent with my 5 year-old son, Luca.

 

Birch Coffee- My son lives for the croissant and egg combo.

 

Dumbo, Brooklyn – We always start with a yummy brunch at Bubby’s, then head straight...

My Mother, My Mentor

A fine jewelry designer for 32 years- catering to a private clientele- my mother taught me everything I know about diamonds and gemstones.


A trailblazer in her own right dabbling in black rhodium in the 1970's before it was considered chic. My sense of proportion, asymmetry and color all grew out of my exposure to my mother's unique and artistic vision.  Even if it was...

Mom-of-a-Kind

Tick-tock- it's that time of the year again! The day designated to show mommy dearest exactly how much she means to us. While we shower her with our love, there's nothing like a little token to remind her how special she is to us year round. 

No two moms are alike- we have the perfect presents picked for your special lady.

 

 For our retro mamas out there,...

Country Mouse

Now that you've caught a glimpse of my town mouse ways, I think you're ready for the real Paige.  On any given Saturday (dead of winter notwithstanding) you might find me soaking up some local culture on Long Island's North Fork.  Follow me, if you will, on my journey to the other side (of Long Island, that is!)

 

First Stop: W.M. J. Mills in Southhold

For the grooviest canvas...

NYC20

 

Nothing stirs my creative juices like a good art and antique show of the 20th Century variety. Lucky for me this weekend was the annual NYC 20th Century Art & Design show under the tents at Lincoln Center. 


This year boasted more vintage jewelry than ever and Sally Rosen Gallery was the last word showcasing one of kind pieces, from artists like Max Ernst, Roy Lichtenstein...

Press Worthy!

 

Each season (Spring/Summer & Fall/Winter) my PR firm schedules "Press Previews" which are two days of back to back meetings held at their offices where market editors and stylists come to view and photograph the collection in its entirety. Having real face time with the editors is critical with respect to staying on their radar. Furthermore the preview provides me with a platform in which to present the collection...

The Champagne Diaries- The Final Chapter.

Saturday- The Final Chapter
 

10am:
In slow motion I attempt to pull myself together after last night's Bellini fest for an early-ish business meeting. At least I can speak in my native tongue for this one!

Friday: Work, Work, Work!

Rendezvous with European buying office and a lunch afterwards with the principals at the Hotel Costes -one of my favorite hot spots.
I opted for a "tough and tender" look today when creating my dress for success ensemble. Floral print dress in tomato by Carven, paired with tonal featherweight cashmere scarf by Bette, ultra suede color blocked booties by Elizabeth Olsen and topped...

The Champagne Diaries- Part Two...

 

Thursday 3/29


10:30 am:

Arrived at L'Empire, a sweet little boutique hotel off of the rue Saint-Honoré. While it's not the George IV, it epitomizes affordable luxury at its best with super chic and modern decor, spacious rooms, conveniently situated and most importantly a staff that treats you like a member of the family -and for that I remain a loyal patron.

The Champagne Diaries- Part One...

Part One: Paige is off to Paris...

 

  

 

I'm on my way! Embarking on the first leg of the trip, which promises to be a veritable fashion fest-Parisian style.  Naturally multiple wardrobe and accessory changes a must, hence my super- sized luggage a la Carrie Bradshaw!

My friend, Boaz and I spent a chilly January afternoon riding back and forth on the shuttle from Times Square as part of his Subway Series project. As soon as the train stopped I quickly struck a pose while Boaz jumped on to the platform and clicked away from...
PR Vocab Word of the Day: “Deskside”

Desksides are one of our favorite PR events here at Paige Novick. A deskside is when a designer brings their new collection directly to the editor of a publication, usually in their offices, and explains the story they want to tell with their work and the inspiration behind it. It’s a great way for the designer and editor to have some one-on-one contact, and who better to represent a brand...
