Honestly, I was shocked when I saw floral prints at Céline, almost as shocked as spying Anna Dello Russo in basic black. It’s nice to be surprised.
I have a feeling I may find my new bag at Vuitton this spring. And those boots—-the color is fantastic.
It’s been fun looking at all the spring shows, but the reality is, there are many cold days ahead. This story from WSJ. has all the pieces we’ll need to look good while staying warm come winter. The parka tops my list…
The magazine will be on newsstands October 11.

There are so many beautiful looks in the Valentino spring show that I decided to just pick my favorite. The sunglasses are certainly a breakout moment for the brand, and the bag goes straight on to my earth tones inspiration board.
There’s nothing like a good scarf, and I have loads of them. But, this season the question is, does the scarf match the sweater exactly?? We have Marc Jacobs to thank for this bit of styling obsession. Along with buying his pieces, I plan to wear a navy scarf with my navy blazer, grey scarves with grey sweaters, and so on.
A wonderful picture of Phoebe Philo and her daughter chatting with Delphine Arnault backstage at the Céline show. My girls come to work with me often and have spent many hours doing homework under the racks backstage at shows. It’s important to me that they known the people I work with and have a clear sense of what I do.

Julie de Libran’s debut collection for Sonia Rykiel is a study in 70s French-girl style, which is spot-on considering the house’s history. Here, the Jagger girls walk in the show.

The Givenchy spring show is all about the details. The runway pics make the collection seem hard-edged, you need to look at each piece, the craftsmanship is extraordinarily beautiful. Thank you to Vogue Paris for these backstage images.
I love earth tones—-terracotta, saddle, and even mustard at times. I’m eyeing Pernille’s scarf, the Gucci bag and shoes, and the Chloé jacket.

Hopefully, the movie will be as fun as the book. And the soundtrack should be good, too. Opens October 3.
I don’t usually look to the spring shows for a coat, but there have been so many good ones on the runways, it may end up being the perfect season to find a transitional topper. Céline above and Dior below had some of my favorites. Throw in the linen duster from Bottega Veneta and the Loewe suede trench bottom, and it will be hard to choose.
Parisian stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé tops my list of chicest of the chic women. I’m inspired by her personal style—-wearing of-the-moment pieces, yet making them very much her own is her trademark. Fashion-forward, but not trendy–MAS gets it right.

At a lecture last evening on Wicked Plants (i.e. the ones in your garden that can kill you) everyone was commenting on the perfect weather we had this summer. Fall is turning out to be pretty nice too, and this page in Domino is inspiration for an autumn picnic. They had me at the blanket, I’m a whipstitch nut.
A few runway pics from Jonathan Anderson’s first show for Loewe. A fan of neutrals, this collection has a number of pieces that I would love to own. Worth a closer look on style.com.
Jonathan Anderson’s debut collection for Loewe looks fantastic and when I get to the office I’ll go through the show images and put a post together. Consider this Instagram snap © Self Service a sneak peek.
