One of my favorite things about this GOTM is the way she employs her community- literally and figuratively. Her home is like a storybook and my favorite chapter is the dining room. “Jon Tutolo, of Haven Dallas, picked the colors for the walls, which makes this piece of art by local artist, Christopher Martin, pop. Megan Adams [local textile artist and one of my good friends] created this table cloth for me- it transforms the room.”

With an estate that seems more like a contemporary art gallery that someone’s reality, I feel a bit more intellectual for just walking through the door.

Paula collected a few white dresses for all of her engagement parties a few years ago and this Alexander Wang was one of the more important pieces.

Since it is no longer available, I have found three options that will work for you:

1. Dar-ti showdown dress with triangle cutout at back, $228

2. Madison Marcus gilt dress with flattering rouching at the sides

3. Nanette Lepore Madam Spy shift dress, (would look great with long camel gloves!) $298

Paula’s Chloe wedges are a new purchase from Barneys and they are a perfect piece for autumn transition. The color combination is not too obvious and the pairing is clean and serene.

If you love the look but need a less expensive option, I suggest either these grey strappy wedges (just $71 and FREE shipping!) or these suede Shawna wedges.

Wondering where she got that snakeskin clutch? She found it at a flea market in Capetown, South Africa during her honeymoon. Yes, she is that cool.
