On My Mind
I am the Easter bunny in my home. Filling baskets (or rather 1 basket, and 1 box sent to boarding school) is a tradition I enjoy. The daffodils are finally up and the forsythia is in bloom promising a beautiful spring. Easter makes me feel hopeful and that anything is possible, and for that I am grateful.

A shirt and skirt, doesn’t get much more basic than that. And no one looks as good in this simple silhouette than Lauren Hutton. MyTheresa ran vintage pics of Hutton this morning which got me thinking about the American actress and her timeless style.

My hotel in L.A. has a Bliss spa and loaded our bathroom with samples. I’ll admit that I haven’t used a Bliss product in years, but the lemon + sage body wash smells so good that I brought a bottle home and we’re all addicted.

Sofia Coppola has edited a special edition of W to be sold with the magazine’s May issue. W’s editor in chief, Stefano Tonchi, tells WWD that Coppola was completely hands on– from the cover of Kirsten Dunst, to a “Q&A by Coppola with Marisa Berenson in Marrakech, a story from Cornelia Guest on her mother’s best entertaining tips and an item by Paul Fortune on his design process for Marc Jacobs’ media room”.
I’m a big fan of Sofia Coppola’s films, personal style, and desire to have a private life despite her famous family and career demands. The issue will be on newsstands Monday.

Next to Rosemary, Abd el Kader by Cire Trudon is my favorite candle scent. I love how Cire Trudon candles are displayed– placed under glass domes to trap the scent. The heavy, green glass container, gold label, and pale green or white box is the ultimate in packaging.

It’s raining, I’m hauling around bags from my trip to L.A., and I don’t have a free hand for an umbrella. Years ago, my friend gave me a rain bonnet like the one Hanne Gaby Odiele was snapped wearing at the Paris shows. I remember thinking that I would never be caught dead in a bonnet– well, I would today.
