  23. Words of wisdom: “Every day God invites us on the same kind of adventure. It’s not a trip where He sends us a rigid itinerary; He simply invites us. God asks what it is He’s made us to love, what it is that captures our attention, what feeds that deep indescribable need of our souls to experience the richness of the world He made. And then, leaning over us, He whispers, ‘Let’s go do that together.’” —Bob Goff

Sarah Bray-West

Sarah Bray Bermuda, Sun Hats,

  1. Sartorial icon: Locally in Palm Beach, I admire a lot of the female decorators for their aesthetic talents in all arenas: Amanda Lindroth, Danielle Rollins, Meg Braff, Brittney Bromley, Alessandra Branca, Mimi McMakin and the ladies at Kemble. I’m forgetting so many! But wow, these incredible women and the modern-day businesses they have built are beyond inspiring.
  2. Greatest inspiration: Since I was a young girl growing up in Texas, I have always admired her work ethic and ability to persevere with elegance and grace.
  3. First piece she designed: I started with small-batch caftans made with vintage textiles, but my sun hats woven with antique ribbons really took off. I split my time between Bermuda and Palm Beach. If you’ve ever been on the beach or on a boat in the islands, you know it’s windy! So, I started making sun hats just for myself with ribbons to tie under my chin and into my hair to keep my hat from flying away. Made from biodegradable tropical grasses and palm tree leaves, each sun hat features antique and vintage ribbons that are interchangeable, so you can change your ribbon to match your dress or swimsuit.
  4. Memorable career moment: When I was offered my first internship in NYC at Vogue (in the accessories department). It was the summer after my sophomore year, and the opportunity was surreal—especially for an ambitious young woman with zero industry connections. It was the launchpad for my career trajectory that evolved into working at the New York Times style section, House Beautiful, Veranda, Elle Decor, Town & Country, and more!
  5. Signature piece from her collection: Sun hats designed for interchangeable antique ribbons
  6. Best business advice: Start small with one item and focus on getting that item perfected before launching more products. Stay nimble and lean for as long as you can before taking on investors and ambitious growth goals.
  7. Outfit in regular rotation: Coco Shop dress, Artemis slides with a heel, seashell bag, Seaman & Schepps seashell earrings, Celine cat-eye tortoiseshell sunglasses, and a Sarah Bray Bermuda sun hat (of course!)
  8. Cherished fashion find: Too many to count! I am a massive vintage collector. Recently, I started collecting vintage Stubbs & Wootton smoking slippers. I also collect vintage needlepoint handbags, seashell jewelry, 1980s big gold clip-ons, vintage silk kimonos, and nightgowns/slip dresses.
  9. Coveted items for summer: Julia Amory’s Baby Jane dress and her cute new solid silk sets. I will be wearing these to dinner in Bermuda all summer.
  10. Go-to beach accessory: Chanel birkenstocks
  11. Beauty must-haves: Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Super Cindy and Aerin Hibiscus Palm perfume
  12. Never leaves home without: My hand-engraved necklace by Miami-based jewelers Emily & Ashley. It is engraved with my son’s birthday and initials.
  13. Palm Beach hidden gem: All the thrift shops in West Palm! I love shopping for antiques and vintage items. My entire house is only decorated from secondhand and old pieces, and I mostly wear vintage dresses and handbags. So, when I was dreaming of designing my namesake collection, it was natural to use vintage and renewable materials. There are so many aspects of human life that are unavoidably wasteful, so it’s really important to me to not pollute our beautiful world with even more waste.
  14. Beloved local spot: The Society of the Four Arts’ children’s library and gardens
  15. Ideal meal: A cheeseburger at Le Goulue’s bar
  16. Drink of choice: Cold brew with macadamia nut milk from Composition Coffee in West Palm
  17. Desired travel destination: We are going to Cotswolds in August.
  18. Summer reading: As a former magazine editor, I am a magazine junkie! I adore British decorating publications like House & Garden and World of Interiors. I also can’t wait for the mailwoman to drop-off Schumacher’s decorating quarterly, Frederic.
  19. Favorite podcast: How’d She Do That? by Emily Landers or The Chairish Podcast which Michael Boodro
  20. Most-used app: Poshmark for vintage clothing and jewelry shopping.
  21. Words of wisdom: Let go of perfectionism and forgive yourself. Since becoming a mom, I have a totally new outlook on life. I now realize everyone is just trying their best every day and that’s both freeing and beautiful to accept.
