Haute List: July 2006
5 things to love this month
Please don’t ruin my delicate olfactory nodes this summer with your sticky clouds of heavy, department-store-y
Please don’t ruin my delicate olfactory nodes this summer with your sticky clouds of heavy, department-store-y perfumes. Instead, create gentle zephyrs of all-natural pleasantness by dabbing on drops of Bucks County-based Millefiori’s new, citrus-y Fiori D’Arancio (for day) or sweet Tuberosa (for night). 1000flowers.net.
You, there, in your wide-striped shirt and anchor necklace: It’s high time you got your faux-sailor self one of the Marine Club’s poshly rehabbed, 11-foot-ceilinged, plush-carpeted, prettily wallpapered condos. 1100 South Broad Street, 215-735-3300; marineclubcondos.com.
How long have I been waiting for a lil’ day spa like Water Unlimited, one with pedicures in circular sandboxes and beach-blue walls and tiny cappuccinos and swift lash tints? Forever. 1114 Pine Street; 215-629-1199.
Forget waiting lists. Next time I need a shiny red Lexus SC 430 convertible or a pair of LV pumps shipped from the Paris boutique, I’ll get ’em right quick via the personal concierges at ¬American Royalty. 800-570-0235; americanroyalty.com.
Golfers say Pine Hill’s best assets are its fast, hilly, winding greens. I, however, say it’s the treetop view from the semi-private, postmodernly preppy, clubby clubhouse to Center City’s skyline — doubly impressive on a Wednesday at 9 a.m., when the rest of the world is toiling in the office. 500 West Branch Avenue, Pine Hill, 877-450-8866; golfpinehill.com.
