In Stitches

Prada

Again, it’s all about the topstitching. I loved these looks on the runway, this was a fantastic collection with great denim pieces as well. And that skirt would be a nice addition to my wardrobe, it’s the perfect length.

Knotty

Every now and again I may fall for a fun, fashion-forward piece—but with jewelry, I’m pretty conservative.  When these Pascale Renaux knot earrings popped up on Vogue Paris, I knew I needed to track them down and make them mine; I would wear them forever.

A Bit Of Burgundy

Céline

I’ve never been a big burgundy fan. However, yesterday morning I spied an incredibly chic girl with a burgundy Birkin, and it looked sensational. A Birkin is not on my wish list, instead, I’ve had my eye on a few Céline pieces in this fall color.

When I ran the British Vogue image above in an earlier post a reader commented that the shoes make the dress, and I’d have to agree. I’ve been wanting something that screams FW14, and these platforms fit the bill. Unlike many people, I have no problem wearing styles that I wore years ago and remember a pair of Prada platforms fondly. I can already hear the comments…

P.S. The burgundy calf with yellow stitching (it’s all about the stitching) is unbelievably chic. I photographed the bag at the Céline shop on Madison, and Barneys has an envelope clutch in the same color combo.

Better As A Top

Alexander Wang While adding product to the KiC shop, I paused before I put in this T by Alexander Wang mini dress. When Net-a-Porter says it’s “particularly short in length”, I know it’s too short for me. But I love the design, and worn as a tunic over trim pants with these Dolce & Gabbana flats would be an easy holiday look.

Haerts

Haerts Last week I met a member of this Brooklyn-based indie-pop band in my office of all places. So, when I saw Haerts profiled on T magazine with a picture by Albert Watson below, I had to put up a post. Their new single “Lights Out” is really good and I’m sure they will be playing all the festivals next summer.

Still Going Strong

I’ve been chatting with my sister about another trip to London early next summer. Surprisingly, it’s already been a year since the last visit. One of my most vivid memories of that trip is I came home and had a full-blown wardrobe breakdown and posted In A Rut bemoaning my lack of anything to wear. I rectified the problem with just a few items and one of my favorite purchases was this pair of Jimmy Choo booties in calf—I wear them so often, I just ordered another in suede.

FILMS

Coming-Of-Age

There are two indie coming-of-age movies out and I want to see them both. The only problem is, these are the kinds of films I like  to see with my older daughter who’s away at college. Hopefully, they’ll still be in theaters at Thanksgiving. ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ looks particularly good.

Sites I Like Cont.

TotemeLast week I posted on a bunch of sites that I follow, and I should add to that list Elin Kling’s The Wall. Many bloggers have expanded their brands—some have become photographers, stylists, and a few have published books—Elin and her husband have designed a clothing line called Toteme.  The collection is based on Elin’s personal style which is “relaxed and chic”. I need a black turtleneck and Totême has a nice one at a good price point. TBC.

’70s Fashion

Crocheted vest, ribbed-knit turtleneck sweater, and wide brimmed hat… When I saw the cover of this new book of vintage ’70s fashion images on Vogue Paris, I laughed. But I still want the Miu Miu vest.

This Is Such A Good Bag, Too

Loewe I promise that these are not sponsored posts, I’m just a huge fan of what Jonathan Anderson is doing at Loewe and it’s nice to see the brand come back to life. Even though I try to avoid handbags (no shoulder strap), I’d make an exception for this large woven Amazona 75 (the original is from 1975).

‘Positively 4th Street’

Vogue USA - November 2014

Romantic long skirts and pretty prints, I think a dose of femininity would do my wardrobe some good. The November issue of Vogue has a number of great stories.

Feeling Groovy Cont.

Vogue

When this Miu Miu resort look came down the runway last July, I posted on how much I loved the crocheted vest—and I still do. The summer camp, arts and crafts feel totally appeals to me.
