Based on the popular social media handle @choupettesdiary bringing to life the persona of Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette, here’s the 411 on Choupette’s favorite things.
I’m one spoiled pussy and I’m not afraid to admit it. I’m privileged enough to spend indulge in hotels like The Renwick, getting PETicures and shopping. Along the way – between my frivolous spends – I find a thing or two that catches my fancy. These are the bits and baubles that are #ChoupetteApproved:
Parker Thatch Custom Canvas Clutch/Tote– Humans like to have their initials monogrammed everywhere so I’ve taken it a step further and added my face to all my totes. My dear friend Toast (of Toasts Meets World) introduced me to Parker Thatch and now I insist my custom “face monogram” clutch and tote is a must for travel.
Karen Walker Number One Angular Cat Eye Sunglasses – Not all of us are blessed with natural cat eyes so Karen Walker offers humans a second best option with her Number One shades. Daddy Karl Lagerfeld taught me from a young age that sunglasses hides all sins and I’ve never forgotten his wise words.
Daniel Wellington Watch – It’s a blogger’s right of passage to own a Daniel Wellington watch. If you can’t afford a vintage Rolex or a Cartier Tank (which I can), the classic elegance of Daniel Wellington will do.
La Prairie ‘Cellular Radiance’ Perfecting Fluide – If I’m forced to stare at your complexion, I expect gold (figuratively and literally). La Prairie Cellular Radiance Perfecting Fluide is a gold-infused moisturizer that provides instant perfection to the skin while improving texture, tone and elasticity from within. Discoloration is slowed, age spots are lightened and the appearance of large pores is softened. Plus, it looks gorg in your medicine cabinet. Win, win!
Creed Royal Princess Oud – Perfume fit for a royal princess! Spritz Creed Royal Princess Oud when you’re feeling feisty and want to smell like the chateau garden and floral Iris. Daddy gifted me this Oud because of Creed’s rich family history with the intention of teaching me about beauty and fashion history and now I pass the story onto you! Royal Princess Oud is inspired by over twenty volumes of sketch books, revealing a time when the Creeds were steeped in men’s and women’s tailoring in London and marking the first scent born from a century of the family’s couturier history. See… I’m not just a pretty face!
Sisley Paris Mascara So Intense – No matter how many cat naps you take, some of you need a little extra something to brighten those eyes. Sisley Paris’ So Intense Mascara is a volumizing and fortifying mascara that provides both short and long-term results. Launching in April, the unique formula (enriched with vitamin-rich peptides) works to lengthen and thicken your natural eyelashes in just two weeks. Plus, I love anything with a fluffy
Here/Now Heather Pompoms Sneakers – It’s no secret that I love anything fuzzy, which is why I immediately gravitated towards Here/Now’s Pompoms Sneakers. While they come in a spectrum of rich shades, all feature a luxe all-suede base and playful poms. Warning! These are not toys.
Renwick Hotel – Once home to working artists’ studios, and later to notable writers and intellectuals, The Renwick takes cues from its former residents and has established itself as a NYC travel destination. The Midtown East boutique hotel was once a residence to authors John Steinbeck and F. Scott Fitzgerald, who would stay for periods ranging from several months to many years. Now, it’s where I go for a creative escape while avoiding the papz — incase you have as many adoring fans as Daddy and moi.
