March 2007 Vogue
My daughter cleaned her closet this summer and tossed out a pair of desert boots. I grabbed them and have been wearing them in lieu of sneakers while running around. Made me think of this Vogue story from 2007 by Mario Testino—maybe it’s time to bring back the Desert Boot and Wallabee…
A super chic jacket from the Marni SS17 collection—love, love, love the cargo sleeve.
There’s a lot to love and wear in Tomas Maier’s SS17 collection for Bottega Veneta. Lauren Hutton walked in the fantastic show, helping to celebrate the house’s 50th anniversary. Doesn’t get any better than this in my book.
In The Wall Street Journal
I mentioned last week that I’m looking forward to an upcoming evening with my friend interior designer Katie Ridder and her husband architect Peter Pennoyer where they will talk about their new book, “A House in the Country”. This weekend’s WSJ profiled the the couple’s garden at their new Millbrook, NY home.
It’s not just the many shades of beige that caught my eye—the lacing, pleating, ribbing, edging, etc.—all details that elevate an item’s appeal.

I went to a book signing last evening for Bunny Williams’ and Mark D. Sikes’ new books. And I’m looking forward to an upcoming lecture by Katie Ridder and Peter Pennoyer on their new book. A fabric nut, I’ve just ordered A.S. Byatt’s book, too. I have a mighty stack to keep me busy.
Beautiful, A House in the Country, Peacock & Vine, A House by the Sea.
The Protagonist SS17 collection looks amazing—the ‘sunkist orange” is especially fab. I need to revisit The Apartment by The Line.
Since loafer-mania took over the fashion world, I’ve been wearing my Belgians more than ever. A well-loved navy suede pair with jeans is my current school run uniform, and my bubble gum-colored pair, worn with jeans, too, are a nice nod to the pink trend.
My friend and kic profile Mark D. Sikes has a gorgeous new book, ‘Beautiful’, out today. It’s no surprise that the chapter “bringing the outside in” is my favorite. Congratulations, Mark!
