We’ve been eating more squash than usual—I love that you can buy it and forget about it until you are ready to cook it. Delicata, not on my radar until this fall, is my current squash of choice—simply roasted, like this recipe from Martha Stewart, is the way to go. Don’t forget that you can eat the seeds.

When the Net-A-Porter sale launched last month, I scored a few big ticket items that I’d been eyeing. But, now the markdowns are even steeper, up to 70% on many items, and I’m looking for fun vacation pieces like these straw totes and sandals. Again, the sale items are coinciding nicely with my needs.
Totes: Kayu, Nannacay, Antik Batik and Sophie Anderson. Sandals: Mabu By Maria BK, Loeffler Randall, Chloé, and Prada.
Thank you Net-A-Porter for asking for my sale picks!
A creature of habit when it comes to travel, I love the premise of this series, Try On A New Life, in The Agenda from Tablet Hotels. Today, hotels are so much more than just a place to sleep—it’s time for me to get outside of my comfort zone and explore.
On My Radar
A lot of jewelry looks the same to me these days, so I was pleasantly surprised when I spied these cool crystal pendants in the Victoria Beckham PF18 collection images.
Earlier this year I posted on wanting to try a facial oil and my friend Liz emailed me that she loves these two—both look good. My skin has been so dry, I’ll try anything at this point.

This incredible image is from WSJ. Magazine’s Eternal Style issue that’s on newsstands today. The Tiffany & Co. bracelet and Céline dress are simply sublime.

What does it mean to be a tastemaker today? Photographer Melanie Acevedo and Schumacher creative director Dara Caponigro attempt to answer this question in their stunning book, The Authentics. The duo “dive into the private worlds and gorgeous homes of 30 international trailblazers in art, design, and fashion” and the resulting photographs and interviews are wonderful.
There are so many extraordinary and diverse talents profiled but, my favorite is on designer Anne-Marie Midy at home in Brussels with her children.
Just when I was wondering if the new Saint Laurent would offer evergreen pieces, up popped these sandals ( I’m a brown sandal fanatic) . I couldn’t add them to my cart fast enough—perfection.
Black here and here. Side note: I bought and kept the black—will wear them more often and I already have quite a few pairs of brown sandals.
The seasons and sales have started to dovetail nicely. The temps have dropped in NYC and a Prada coat I’ve had my eye on just went on sale this morning—I’d call that synchronicity.

A few months ago I posted that I’d tweaked a pair of Manolo Blahnik black stretch-suede boots, shortening them to about this height (mine are a tad taller)—and, let me tell you, it was a great decision. I wear them all the time with skirts and pants (no gap between the bottom of the pant leg and top of the boot) and I get lots of compliments. No one noticed them when they were the stuffy to-the-knee height.
Grey, cream, black and red and here.
