Daria in Sweden

Daria

Mikael Jansson photographed Daria Werbowy in the Swedish archipelago for one of  the September issues of Interview. The story is stark and breathtakingly beautiful.

I edited this story by half, the issue is on newsstands.

My Uniform

Feeling Blue

Marni So, I bought a blue bag. Yep, blue. They call it navy, but it’s actually lighter and brighter, more of a cobalt or smalt (I looked it up). The bag comes in lots of colors that are more “me”, but I quite like this one. Although the tags are still attached, it’s sitting on my desk so I can ponder it, which means it’s probably here to stay. I’ve wanted a more structured, ladylike bag, and this one by Marni fit the bill. The best bit is the adjustable strap which can extend to be worn messenger style, a real win-win.

This will be my run-around outfit for early fall. Navy still feels fresh and I cannot get enough ribbed sweaters, especially from J. Crew. I’m not always their biggest fan (sequins on Tees, really?), but this season they have the best basics, the pieces they became famous for, and I’m buying them up.

And I’m starting my search for the perfect loafers with these by Manolo Blahnik, will let you know.

Sweater, jeans, bag, loafers.

Loafers

Daria

I put this AG Jeans fall campaign image on my desktop for inspiration and fell in love with the loafers. I’m now officially on the hunt for a pair for fall. TBC.

The Kindest Cut

Dolce & Gabbana

My favorite skirt is an A-line. And I’m lucky because it’s the shape of the season so there are many to choose from. Paired with one of the numerous ribbed-knit sweaters I’ve amassed, I’ll be set to go.

All three skirts in the KiC shop.

On My Mind

Summer’s End

Martha's Vineyard This has been one of the best summers, mostly because of the sensational weather.  But there was a nip in the air on the Vineyard and it felt like fall is just around the corner.

This week may be packed with back-to-school errands, but it’s also the start of the U.S. Open and the Hampton Classic, and nothing beats tennis and riding in my book. Both take the sting out of the impending start of school.

Sixties Redux

Vogue Paris

“Edie in Paris”, a story from the September issue of Vogue Paris, is a lesson in how to nail the current take on the sixties look. Basically, all you need is a trim coat, cute dress, and a pair of knee-high boots. Three easy pieces. Continue…

“Brunch At Tiffany’s”

T Magazine

The chain that the Tiffany’s design director Francesca Amfitheatrof is wearing caught my eye. T Magazine profiled Amfitheatrof and photographed her at work and in her Brooklyn home. I love the modern sensibility she is bringing to Tiffany’s, and that T chain, being the perfect length and weight, is on my list.

On The Hunt For

A Ladylike Coat

Gucci

Last fall I was focused on finding the perfect fur and/or shearling (I never did find the shearling, such is life). However, for this fall I want a ladylike coat. I have a number of beloved heavy wool duffels, but now I want something that’s a bit more feminine. This Gucci coat in the fall issue of Porter is beautiful, especially the lovely pale green color. I think there are many to choose from this season. TBC.

Going Green

J. Crew

The gray version is perfection, and I know many of you bought it in navy (now sold out), but the J. Crew ribbed-knit in safari green is good too. I was told that green is one of the colors for fall and this would be an inexpensive way to add it to my wardrobe.

Lash Love

Porter

The brightly-colored lipstick renaissance was not my thing, and thankfully it seems to be on the wane, but statement lashes are a beauty trend I’d try, especially for evening.  Along with the fab 60′s fashions on the fall runways came dramatic, often clumpy, lashes. I’ve been studying the makeup in this story from the fall issue of Porter and may need a tutorial to achieve the look. I cannot even remember when I last applied mascara to my bottom lashes, this should be fun.

Inspired By

Look de Pernille

I’m heading up to the Vineyard, the last trip before the girls go back to school. A cool summer to begin with, evenings are going to be downright chilly. I’m taking a page out of Danish blogger Pernille Teisbaek’s book and packing a chunky knit. Pernille has great personal style and her site is one of the small handful of non-news sites that I follow.

Butterflies Are Free To Fly

Butterflies abound at both Givenchy and Valentino (below from the September issue of W). I think it’s a lovely motif.

One of my favorite fall campaigns is Vera Wang’s. I love Patrick Demarchelier’s black and white images and the laid-back vibe of Julia Von Boehm’s styling. It’s chilly this morning and the chunky-knit cardigan above would be just the ticket. Continue…

‘The Franca Files’

Franca Sozzani The inspirational editor in chief of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani, is profiled in this weekend’s WSJ.  At the magazine’s helm since 1988, Sozzani is best known for the photographers she’s helped launch–Meisel, Lindbergh, Ritts, Roversi–all of whom went on to become enormously successful. Sozzani is gearing up for Italian Vogue’s 50th anniversary this fall– I’m sure the commemorative issue will be a keeper. WSJ
