by the looks of things, you might imagine we’re off to paris today, but no, madame, we are simply en route to one of new york city’s finest in french dining. say bonjour to la mercerie, a charming cafe which conveniently lives right inside the Roman and Williams Guild, a design emporium that sells all the artisanal tableware you’ll be eating and drinking off of at la mercerie, meals with the thoughtful delight of everyday French cooking. so as you sip your kir royale and decide what to let chef Marie-Aude Rose prepare for you, you might also consider which plates you might like to take on home with you. we’re getting dressed as any smart french woman might in a sexy halter top worn with a blazer — naturally over the shoulder in the chicest way possible — our favorite faded denim, some stylish black flats, aviator glasses and one great looking hat to top it all off. before you head out, i suggest you might enjoy perusing The New Parisienne: The Women and Ideas Shaping Paris by Lindsey Tramuta. in her new book, lindsey demystifies the oversimplified archetype and recasts the women of Paris as they truly are, in all their complexity, featuring 50 activists, creators, educators, visionaries, and disruptors — just the thing to inspire your confident french femme vibes.

  1. Love you ‘wear this there’ posts. They’re always fun and inspirational but right now they’re also a way to travel.

  2. one of my favorite spots in nyc–every bit as charming and magical as it looks, and then some! (and the food/coffee/cocktails are divine as well.) it truly does feel like a little piece of paris in new york. last summer while running an errand in that neighborhood on a sweltering day, i ducked in and treated myself to a crisp rosé and a delicious little pastry. that day feels a million years ago now, but here’s hoping we will return to beloved spaces like this soon… (meanwhile they have transitioned to outdoor dining!)
