Our Highly Selective

My Favorite Things

Alina Cho takes an omnivorous approach to journalism, pursuing a wide range of stories that all seem to identify a particular sensibility that she shares in her digital newsletter, Cho & Tell. An Emmy Award–winning contributor to CBS Sunday Morning, Cho is also a producer of the upcoming Netflix documentary on Martha Stewart and the host of “The Atelier with Alina Cho,” a conversation series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Like her stories, her style essentials have both personality and verve, and they manage to make a strong statement without dominating the conversation. Here, she shares her must-haves of the moment

Everyday Vitality

“Dr. Samantha Boardman writes, ‘We are what we do.’ And she says doing things as simple as taking a walk three times a week can give us vitality, the positive energy that’s at the core of having a great day, every day. This book is full of good, practical advice I’ve taken to heart.”



Center Stage Reading Glasses

“Every time I wear these reading glasses, I get compliments. “Are they Tom Ford?” I love telling people I bought them for less than $30. I have at least 10 pairs (in black and tortoise) scattered around my house.”

Alex Mill


Expedition Jumpsuit in Washed Twill

“This Alex Mill jumpsuit is a key part of my weekend uniform. It’s casual (but not too casual) and slimming! I have it in multiple colors. P.S.: You can’t beat the price.”

Mr. Mittens


Buttoned Aran Cardigan

“This is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe right now. Sure, it’s a cardigan, but in early fall it doubles as a coat. Wear it over a dress or a jumpsuit and you’re good to go.”



Brushed Leather Slingback Pumps

“I first spotted these low-heeled Prada pumps in Paris last fall, and couldn’t get them out of my mind. Pre-coronavirus, I would’ve never considered buying shoes that didn’t give me at least three to four inches of height. Times have changed. And these slingbacks even have a rubber sole!”

David Webb


Chevron Ring

“Hands down, my favorite ring of all time. At some point, I’ll get it. Someday.
