Some items just look so much better on. I almost passed right by this Vanessa Bruno dress, but then I looked at it on the model and hit ‘buy’ faster than a New York minute. If it looks even half as good on me, this dress will go the distance, and then some.

Within minutes of scrolling through Christopher Bailey’s SS17 Burberry show images I got emails from Net-A-Porter, Matches Fashion, Barneys, Saks, and Mytheresa to buy the looks immediately. With such a strong collection, I’m sure the house’s second season of see-now-buy-now items will be a huge success.
Issue 19 of Porter
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the Vetements + Manolo Blahnik collaboration has a fab kitten-heel slingback, too. This story on the glorious Natalia Vodianova is in the current issue of Porter.

It’s no secret that I’m a block-heel fanatic and I still wear my Gucci Marmonts and Valentino Tan-Gos all the time, but for spring, I want a kitten-heel slingback. The 90s favorite has been a street style-staple for a few seasons and was on the Dior and Vestments (in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik) SS17 runways. A navy pair with cropped jeans would be very chic, indeed.

J.W. Anderson FW17
Even though I’m all over belted coats right now, this J.W. Anderson FW17 trench is pretty fab. I would like to see it unbuttoned, though…
We’ve been craving fish stew so my husband pulled this recipe from Saveur. Perhaps we can cut the cream in half by using coconut milk– the perfect winter meal.
SS17 Issue n° 15
I’m counting the days until I can get my hands on this SS17 issue- on sale February 22. Inez and Vinoodh photographed Sofia Coppola, so you know the pictures will be amazing–the cover is gorgeous.

I’m inspired by Haute Couture but don’t often cover it because it doesn’t have much relevance to my lifestyle. Yet, when the Chanel team invited me to pop by to view the recent SS17 collection, I jumped at the chance to see the looks up close.
Originally shown in Paris on January 24 at the Chanel headquarters, the 1930s Art Deco-inspired collection is beyond beautiful. The evening wear, especially, with it’s mirrored embroidery, is something to behold. My favorite bit of the presentation highlights the house’s use of 3D printing (top right) to map out the placement of the jewels. One of these incredible dresses will surely be on the red carpet at the Academy Awards.
