She's baaaaaack! Our fave world traveler Rebecca Minkoff has been off the travel grid for a few weeks, but we knew she couldn't stay away for long. This week, she shares her recent escape to Puerto Rico.
New York creatives are typically not familiar with R&R. Thankfully for us there are places like The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort in Puerto Rico. Opened in late 2010, the Bahia Beach Resort is a fairly new hotel built on a former coconut plantation. Nothing like a few days away from the brisk East Coast winter to reset my brain and get in the right state of mind for Fashion Week. Less than four hours from New York, Puerto Rico is the ideal Caribbean destination – no passport required. I arrived just as the sun was setting and immediately after checking in was taken on a tour of the lush grounds, which includes access to your very own private beach and borders the El Yunque National Forest. Needless to say our oceanfront room was as stunning as our view. I was also impressed with the range of amenities the resort had to offer. From an eighteen-hole golf course to tennis courts, a seaside pool and scuba diving - there’s truly something for everyone. On my first full day in Puerto Rico I decided to check out the Remède Spa. Billed as a place where nature meets a traditional spa, the majority of the treatments take place outside. Before my massage, I lounged among the koi ponds, outdoor showers, and cascading waterfall with some herbal tea in hand. It's impossible to book the wrong treatment since everything is customized specifically for you. Steam, sauna, and plunge pools- what more could a girl ask for? The food is as top notch as the spa. Each day was an opportunity to try out a new restaurant on the premises. Mornings we’d take breakfast in our room or at Molasses, while afternoons we could count on Seagrapes for a relaxed meal of rustic brick oven pizza. Following an afternoon siesta, we'd head to Fern, which boasts an electric menu of Jean-Georges dishes. Between indulging in their six-course tasting menu and the breathtaking beach views, it’s a meal I won’t soon forget. While we did venture out to Old San Juan for an afternoon, I have to say the resort kept us occupied for our entire trip. We couldn't bear to leave, but before I knew it reality beckoned. The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort was the perfect place to get centered before the wonderful insanity that is Fashion Week. It's no surprise that in between fittings and meetings I find myself plotting my return.

We normally try to keep the Terry Richardson posts to one per week, but we're going to make an exception this time. Terry spices things up on his online diary and does an impression of Lady Gaga with Stefani Germanotta herself. It's the makeover of the century!

The nautical wedges! The gold-tinted laces! The poppy patterned Top-Siders! Last night, yours truly hit the launch party for the Milly for Sperry Top-sider collab at their Madison Avenue boutique. Prepped-out partygoers ogled the limited-edition capsule collection while champagne flowed and salmon canapés made the rounds more than once. But, enough about the mouth-watering apps. It's all about the chaussures, darling!
How did the collab come about, Michelle?
Sperry approached me about a year and half ago, and I thought it was an exciting idea. It's such an iconic brand, and I thought it would be fun to put my own twist on it. I've been approached by different brands to collaborate, but I really believe in Sperry Top-Siders. I've been a customer since I was a little girl.
How many pairs do you own?
Six. I have the Classica and all the new fashion pieces.
Do your kiddos have Top-Siders?
They do! They have about three pairs each.
Where would you never wear Top-Siders?
I'd probably stay away from wearing them to a serious black-tie event. They could even work for a beach wedding. They'd be great in Nantucket.
Where do you summer?
We go to Watermill in the Hamptons.
What kind of water sports do you play?
I like water skiing. I'm not much of a sailor. I tend to get seasick, but I like to sail when the sea is calm, especially on the Mediterranean.
Shows start next week! What's your pre-NYFW guilty pleasure?
A glass of wine in the evening is my guilty pleasure.
