“I would love a trip to Abu Dhabi, a city rich in culture, design and beauty. Also on my list: the Amazon Echo; a coat with a pop of color; slouchy, thigh-high Isabel Marant boots; a sleek coffee machine because I’m all about less clutter on countertops. And I can never have enough candles!” -- Frances Wong, vice president, The Thread Shop at Sony Music Entertainment
GIFT THAT GIVES: Americares (americares.org). “Between the hurricanes and earthquakes, this organization is a priority for me. They’ve given $5 billion in aid over the past 23 years.”
