Back Issues

Self Service

I’ve been going through back issues of Self Service and came across this great pic of Cara Delevingne by Alasdair McLellan. I’m going to copy the loose pony and simple white look.

I could have put this Gucci goat-hair mule in the collage yesterday, instead…

Monday Morning Must-Haves

Three items that I cannot wait to wear this fall are a skinny scarf, long cardigan, and my classic gold hoops (while I look for a hammered pair à la Céline). I have not found the fashion-forward item—my friend Mary is considering the Gucci loafer/mules—hmm, I’m thinking about them, too.

Chloé scarf, Derek Lam 10 Crosby cardigan, Roberto Coin classic gold hoops, Gucci fur-lined mule.

#lastdaysofsummer

We didn’t make it to Positano or London as planned, but we certainly were away a lot this summer. The highlight was sailing on the Vineyard with my family. We are off again this weekend, the last trip of summer 2015.

Summer Knits

Cool, late-summer evenings get me excited for fall. I’ve been pulling out my light-weight, ribbed knits and am wearing them with jeans at night. Malgosia Bela looks great in the Superfine campaign image, above.

Long & Lean

A carryover trend from spring, this Chloé scarf is the perfect accessory to update any look and it won’t break the bank. Saint Laurent makes a silk-chiffon version, too.

Mother & Daughters

This picture of Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller with her daughters is on my desktop. My daughters have both been home this past week and I’m heading to L.A. with the eldest today. Although my girls are a bit older, we are very close and they, too, are my inspiration. The Waight Kellers certainly illustrate how to wear a white blouse for fall.

My Music

Wolf Alice

Wolf-Alice-1

Named after an Angela Carter short story, English alternative band Wolf Alice is my new music obsession. I have their song “Bros” on repeat.

Monday Morning Must-Have

Following a moment of synchronicity — spying the beautiful hem-stitching on Gisele’s shirt collar on the POP cover plus an article in this past weekend’s WSJ on the resurgence of embroidery — I’m more than ready to shelve my minimalistic pieces and have a bit of fun with fashion. I’ve concluded that a white blouse with some sort of feminine detail (nary a classic men’s button-down here) should be on my fall list.

SEA embroidered top, J.W. Anderson pussy-bow, Chloé lace panel top, Miu Miu pleated blouse, Paul & Joe ruffled blouse, Oscar de la Renta lace-trimmed top, Chloé lace top, Valentino lace-paneled silk-chiffon blouse.

It’s In The Details

The hem-stitching on this blouse is beautiful.

Maxi Madness, Cont.

Here’s a maxi dress that I love and have posted on a number of times—I’ve had my eye on this Stella McCartney crocheted beauty since I saw it on the FW15 runway. The navy version is great, too.

Maxi Madness

While driving into Oak Bluffs for ice cream last evening, we spied a gaggle of young women wearing maxi dresses. My mother commented that she just doesn’t understand the appeal of the ankle-grazing trend. I realized that I first posted on the popularity of long-for-day five years ago, yet, I haven’t embraced it myself.

I like a maxi silhouette when it’s done right; not sure why I haven’t bought one. I don’t think it’s an age or height issue.  Thoughts?

Skirt by Isabel Marant.

Summer Extension

I kept meaning to try Gradual Tan at the beginning of the summer, but as August wanes, this may be the perfect time to extend the little color I’ve allowed myself. I hear only good things about Aerin’s products and the packaging is beautiful, too.

‘Hustle & Bustle’

I picked up the September issue of Vogue in Edgartown yesterday; it’s massive and full of beautiful stories. Not sure Victoriana is my thing, but I love these pictures of my old friend Liya Kebede.
