On My Mind

It’s Surprising

I’m amazed that some of the ‘hot’ items were available when the sales started. Maybe the warm fall weather dissuaded folks from stocking up on outerwear because there are still a number of great coats to be had.

‘The Big Tease’

This Mario Testino story from December Vogue makes me smile—Gigi Hadid is delightful.

Reindeer & Snowflakes

I don’t own a full-blown Christmas sweater (my Fair Isles don’t count), but I do have a number of reindeer and snowflake patterned socks—the tops peek above my Penelope Chilvers boots. A small nod to the holiday season.

All socks J. Crew- here, here, here, and here.

Hostess Gifts


My husband (the foodie in the family) introduced me to his friend’s site MOUTH three years ago when it first launched. Mouth sources American-made indie food products and puts together amazing gift collections. Not only are the products scrumptious, but the brand’s ethos is well worth supporting. These are great hostess gifts, especially when sent in advance.

Sweater Weather

It’s still relatively balmy in NYC. Mornings are cool, but a sweater is all I’ve needed for the school run. I had lunch with the artist Kathy Leeds earlier this week and she wore a chunky sweater and a pair of Prada hiking boots—she looked incredibly chic.

Sweater, hat, boots. Kathy’s Prada boots.

Horror genre has never been my thing, but my daughter’s classmate is in director Tara Subkoff’s debut film #Horror and the review on Vogue convinced me to bump this movie to the top of my must-see list.

I Hear You

The Tom Ford lipstick is a great color and tastes good, but I’ve been reapplying frequently. Next up, Charlotte Tilbury lip colors.

TF Lip Color


I’ve discovered Tom Ford lip products and I’m hooked—the best part is they don’t have that ‘lipstick’ taste.

Monday Must-Have

When I opened the BG resort catalogue and spied this look, my first thought was “hostess skirt“. This one is a good price and would never go out of style. But, which shoes? Hmm…

Aquazzura Lace-up, Gucci Webby gold mule, Gianvito Rossi Mary-Jane, Prada gold slide, Prada jacquard mule, Manolo Blahnik leopard mule, Gianvito Rossi sandal, Gucci clog, Gucci Marmont loafer.

Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart

Chris Cornell, lead singer of 90s grunge band Soundgarden, has released a new album, Higher Truth. The track “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” is so good that I’ve got it on repeat.

Shopping My Closet

An “Aha” Moment

Remember the Balenciaga dress I bought last spring and have yet to wear? It’s been at the back of my closet and I’ve felt a wee bit guilty for purchasing it– it looks too mumsy on me as a straight up shift. After I posted the Vogue Italia pics this morning I pulled it out and styled it with with a boy’s shirt, and voila, this is very me.
