This weekend I spent a lovely afternoon with writer Alice Carey. I met Alice on Hudson Street while shopping with my mom and I was instantly drawn to her extraordinary taste and style. Alice immigrated from Ireland as a little girl. Her mother was a maid to the elegant women who walked down Park Avenue and purchased hats from Hattie Carnegie.Watch the clips below to hear more about the development of Carey’s personal style and CLICK HERE for part 2 of my Forbes interview. Also if you are looking for the Arlene Francis book that Alice mentions you can find it on Amazon.
