So, the blizzard was a bit of a non-event but, we are still home for a snow day. I saw this rosti (Swiss potato pancake) recipe in The Wall Street Journal last weekend and will make it today for a post-sledding lunch.
You’d have to be living under a rock to not know that ’70s-style has come roaring back. I’m not complaining because it’s one of the best fashion eras to mine for inspiration. This story, from the February issue of Vogue Paris, is a good example of how to wear all the suede, trenches, and silver jewelry that are so popular now. The Native American Indian pieces are particularly good. I’m going to raid my mother’s jewelry box, again.
Post snowstorm, I want to see this film. The cast is great, especially Julianne Moore, she’s my favorite actress right now.
Some of my best inspiration comes from the women I see on the street, especially on the Upper East Side. Every morning I drop my daughter at school on 91st then, I walk straight down Madison to my office at 70th—this is prime run-around outfit territory. Two of the most ubiquitous UES items this winter, and a somewhat unlikely pairing, are the Hermès Evelyne messenger bag and shearling clog boots. Functional with a touch of boho-chic—I get it.
So, I went to check out the clog boots at No. 6 Store in Soho, and they are pretty great. I know, many of you will pooh-pooh clogs, but they are a big trend, and I’m looking forward to getting a pair.
This is such a funny idea for a story that I had to post a few images. Mikael Jansson photographed four girls harvesting vegetables for the February issue of Interview. Not sure I’d wear a handbag while gardening, but hey, it’s a fashion shoot, and the clothes are fantastic—there are some perfect spring run-around pieces on these pages.
If you read my holiday post on Tory Burch’s blog, you know that I am a sledding fanatic. I’ve had my beloved Norwegian toboggan since childhood. So, when I saw this round-up of sleds in The Wall Street Journal, I couldn’t resist—especially since so many of us have snow.
I’m looking forward to the February issue of Vogue Paris which has a huge story (there are 88 looks) by David Sims. Three stylists contributed to it—Emmanuelle Alt, Suzanne Koller, and Joe McKenna. Here are just a few of my favorite images.
I’ve seen a number of fashion stories by the photographer Ryan McGinley recently and they’ve inspired me to revisit his series Moonmilk from 2009. This is absolutely my favorite image.
While posting on scarves, I remembered this how-to video on the Self Service Magazine site. This way I can be uber matchy-matchy—I like that at times.
I still love a good pair of nerdy glasses, especially these by Saint Laurent. I may have to upgrade my readers…
Location, location, location—I love Elizabeth and David Netto’s mid-century Richard Neutra home in Los Angeles where Mario Testino shot Vogue‘s February cover story on Dakota Johnson. Very chic, indeed. Johnson is the star of the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey—the house could be called fifty shades of beige.
One of my very best fall purchases is a printed Prabal Gurung scarf, it instantly jazzes up my parkas and jackets. Now that we are in the depths of winter, I’m looking for another interesting scarf to add to the rotation—a winter tweak, if you will.
The best scarves are picked up while traveling or from little shops here and there. I saw some nice ones on sale at A.B.C. last week. I’m sorry that most of these are quite pricey, I just like the patterns and textures.
