On the Go with Lela Rose To take kids for a treat: We sit on our stoop with homemade ice cream or head to the High Line and walk the park while eating ice cream from the Chelsea Market. Day trips with the kids: We bike over to Governors Island quite a lot in the summer. The ferry ride over is magical and the views of the Statue of Liberty are like no other. Biking through NYC is the best way to be inspired…travel too. Favorite app or online shopping? Google. I start with what I want and then seek out more. Quick weekend getaway: We have a house upstate in Sullivan County (part of the Catskills). It reminds me of being at our ranch in Texas. Another favorite spot is The Point in the Adirondacks. It is complete rustic luxury. Lengthy summer retreat: Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Seeing artwork and the arts: Galleries and museums are aplenty in New York City. We bike everywhere, so it is easy to drop in on places and not spend too much time. It keeps all of us more interested. n For interiors? BDDW—an amazing store. Also DwellStudio…genius! Funky places you like to visit? Kalustyan’s…amazing Middle Eastern spice store; Union Square Green Market, best place to do your vegetable shopping; NY Cake & Bake, a store dedicated to all your baking and decorating needs; and Adeline Adeline and HUB, two stores with all the baskets, dog carriers, bells and whistles you would ever want for a bike. Hair Salon? Ted Gibson Salon, best color. Best blow out is at the salon on E. 32nd Street. 64 PEACHY In 2012, Lela Rose opened a flagship retail store in her hometown of Dallas. The full ready-to-wear collection including evening, accessories, and an assortment of homegoods can be found at the Highland Park Village location.
