The Power of Individuality

Whether we live at the beach, on a farm or in the countryside, in a cabin or in a palatial new build or a traditional home or modern masterpiece, our homes tell our stories and represent our style. In this issue, we talk quite a bit about both topics, real estate, and fashion.

We not only highlight the season’s top fashion and beauty trends but how to wear and shop for them locally. From a first look at the highly anticipated opening of the CHANEL Fragrance & Beauty boutique in downtown Westport to our “Style At Any Age” feature focusing on women from their teens to their late 60s transforming the fashion landscape in Connecticut, our community is filled with a diverse array of locales and personalities shaping the future of fashion here.

These women have developed their own signature looks and styled themselves — some in flowy dresses and glowing skin, a few with a fashion bent on tomboy chic, while others gravitate toward a monochromatic palette or a wardrobe filled with a mashup of color and creativity. Our subjects range from a college-bound student to a grandmother, a mother-daughter duo to business partners focused on interior design. These are women whose style is so admired it has become integral to who they are on a day-to-day basis.

From the style we radiate externally to the homes we dwell in; real estate is an extension of who we are. The preferred signature neutral aesthetic of cover stars Shae and Jordan Peppler ranges from the look of their comfortable family friendly abode to their attire, reflecting their laid-back life in Connecticut. With professions in broadcast journalism and a passion for sports, the duo moved here during COVID and has not looked back since. The growing family shares with us about what they love about our community, their local haunts, and a nonprofit project very close to both of their hearts.
