Winter Wishes by Joanne Molina of ‘It’s in the Details.’
While dreams of peace, hope and love top my list of holiday wishes, I’m the first to admit that a petit cadeau from someone special always makes me smile. This year I’ve got my eyes on subtle details like well-polished stones, sensuous silks, and the delicate stitches that support the drape of a Chloe blouse. It’s small pleasures that make my season merry.
