It’s impossible to not want a dress or blouse by Monica Mahoney, they are beautifully made and remind you of summer vacations. The perfect dress/blouse that transports you to summer. I don’t wear dresses often, but a dress or blouse from Monica is definitely on my wish list.
She’s been traveling, holding Trunk Shows in Hawaii, but she found time to answer a few questions.
Fashion Icon: The first fashion icon that pops to mind is Grace Kelly, in To Catch a Thief or Rear Window.
Last item purchased before the pandemic: I’m so happy I bought a cozy pair of cashmere slippers that became my best friends during Covid.
Last book read: My Dad has written a memoir of his life as a Hollywood press agent called, “Get Mahoney!” and I have been having a great time helping him edit it during the pandemic. Reading and re-reading all his fabulous stories.
Favorite Restaurant: I have a thing for a Champagne and French Fries dinner at The Hotel Bel Air. It’s in the neighborhood and it’s so swanky at the bar….
Inspiration: My inspiration mostly comes from vintage pieces my mother wore during the 70’s to cocktail parties and resort vacations with my father. Fabric is another passion of mine and I am constantly on the hunt for fun textiles and vintage sources that dictate what they want to be.
Favorite Beauty Products: I am in love with Beauty Counter. I know and love the creator of the brand and everything she stands for. The products are clean and fab…
If you could live in any piece of clothing, what would it be: A glamorous caftan. (Need we say more?)
