These are the many faces of cryotherapy! What is cryotherapy, you ask? Well, we had the same question. Lucky for us, our friend Charis Wipfler owner of Grace Medical Aesthetics is the first to bring whole body cryotherapy to Connecticut and asked us to come along to check it out.

Knowing not much more about cryotherapy other than it being the latest thing in celebrityville, and that loads of top sports athletes swear by it, we decided to give it a whirl. We brought along Lora’s husband Michael for a male POV….and to go first!

Artist Robert Deyber

We first learned of artist Robert Deyber when we visited the Housatonic Trading Company in Bantam. Store owner Robert Graham presented us with neighboring artist Robert Deyber’s huge coffee table book, “Figures of Speech,” and we couldn’t get enough of it. We spent hours leafing through the pages, playing guess-the-phrase. Robert’s paintings are fun and entertaining, and as told on his website, his style has been described as both “kitsch and absurdist.” We just know we love!

Robert takes commonly used phrases/sayings/euphemisms that we’ve all heard at some point or another and adds his own clever twist. Once you figure out his spin on the English language, you too can become quite fluent!

Worth New York

While we were in the city for NYFW, we scheduled an appointment to meet our Litchfield County friend Susan Haberman at the Worth New York showroom. Susan is an independent stylist for Worth, a company that has a strong belief in empowering the stylists that work for them, and the woman who buy their clothes.

We certainly felt on top of the world while we were there, trying on outfit after outfit! The view of Central Park from the 24th floor at 730 5th Avenue is incredible. The flagship penthouse showroom once belonged to Imelda Marcos – just one of the many floors she needed to house her shoe collection! So yes, quite a heavenly experience…read on!

Lime Rock – Sunday in the Park

To “unlock” Lime Rock Park has been on our wishlist for a while. So, when they invited us to spend a day at their annual Sunday in the Park event, we were totally excited. Lime Rock is a historic road racing circuit in Lakeville which has been in continuous operation since 1957, making it one of the oldest tracks in North America. Almost all of the sports car racing greats have raced at Lime Rock.

Dead of Summer actress Amber Coney and The Flash actress Violett Beane (Jesse “Quick” Wells) were sitting a few seats down from us at the Fashion Palette show during NYFW – so naturally, we threw some popcorn at them and loudly whispered, “Pssst, you guys, can we do a quick interview and photo shoot after the show??” – to which they agreed. Ok, so we actually went through their super lovely agent, Nilda Carrazana who helped us all connect after the buzz of seeing our first swimwear collection (it was a first for us all).

Thankfully swimwear season is almost behind us here in LC (we’ve already switched over to comfort eating), but it was very much “now” at the Fashion Palette New York’s Australian Swim/Resort wear runway show! Nine different Australian designers showed off their SS17 collections at Pier 59. 

B. Johnstone – Style us please!

img_9295webimg_9305webimg_9293webimg_0023_ppwebimg_9268webimg_0019webimg_9258web

With a couple of days scheduled doing all the fashionista things of our dreams at NYFW, we asked Bartley Johnstone, stylist and owner of B. Johnstone in Kent, to help us come up with an amazing outfit for one of the days!

We asked Bartley to please kick us out of our comfort “go-to” zones, and help us put together an outfit that would scream “street style!”

How we love having Unlocking Litchfield as an excuse to meet our interesting neighbors! Inquisitive by nature, our “At home with…” features allow us to capture a glimpse into the lives of some really cool people. Today’s power couple is Alexander and Gina Duckworth. The Duckworths and their two younger children, Aubrey and Sebastian, live in Litchfield on the weekends and during the week, they’re being all kinds of fabulous in their careers in NYC. Come, be a Nosy Nancy alongside us!

Natori – NYFW

What a pleasure it was to attend the Josie Natori Spring/Summer 2017 Presentation held at the impressive Waterfall Mansion during NYFW. The alternative to showing a collection on a runway, a presentation allows guests to get up close and personal! Those models are good sports and reminded us of the Queen’s Guard, with all of us staring at them. We did manage to get one model to smile at us though…scroll on and enjoy the collection. We loved it!
