’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.

When I saw pics of this super chic Loewe bag on Instagram, my heart skipped a beat. It tops my wish list.

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.

Collar Crush

Collar Crush

Balenciaga

This Balenciaga collar is on my radar and I would gladly break my yellow-gold-only rule for it. Besides the gorgeous design, it lies beautifully. Would be chic with a grey cardigan.

Black Tights

Saint Laurent It’s all about black tights, and I’m ready to go there again after far too many bare-legged winters. I’ve always worn and loved Fogal, but I’m open to recommendations…

Sites I Like

A few readers asked which blogs/sites I follow. Since they are all on my dashboard, this is not a difficult question to answer. The obvious ones are the straight up news and magazine sites–WSJ, NYTimes, the Vogues, Self Service, W, and WWD. Then, the blogs that cover lifestyle–Tory Burch, Mark D. Sikes, and Habitually Chic are bookmarked. And my British friends That’s Not My Age and Disney Roller Girl are great reads. Finally, three of my favorites are personal style blogs, and the authors are pictured above.

Pernille effortlessly mixes classic pieces with fashion forward items and I post on her often.

Hedvig’s personal style is how I think I should dress, yet rarely do, which is precisely why I follow her.

Maja Wyh is a genius at layering and unexpected pairings and she makes the least expensive clothes look great.

These are only a few of the sites I check daily, TBC.

British journalist Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni is in NYC promoting her two new books: Monsieur Dior: Once Upon A Time, and Lou Lou de la Falaise, which she co-authored with Ariel de Ravenel. We were colleagues at Harper’s Bazaar ages ago, so it was nice to catch up with the uber busy writer. Thanks Natasha for answering a few questions!

Tomas Maier On Madison

Tomas Maier

The new Tomas Maier shop opened on Madison. I saw these pictures from WWD being taken last week as the store is only a few blocks from my office. I’ll pop in and take some snaps.

Chiffon Dream

Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 7.00.05 PM While cleaning up the site and going through old posts, I reread Ultimate Fall Wish List which made me think of these images in the new Self Service.  The turtle-print silk chiffon Givenchy dress (it’s actually a blouse and skirt) is dreamy. Self Service

My Music

‘Yellow Flicker Beat’

Lorde I have a confession, I’m not a fan of Lorde’s songs, yet I think she is an enormous talent.  ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’, the first song to drop from the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 1 soundtrack, is beautiful and has changed my opinion of her music. Lorde has been tasked with curating all of the songs for the film and clearly hit the cover off the ball with this single.

Getting Out There

Claudia Schiffer A huge blog that I love and follow asked me months ago if they could profile me. Honored but nervous, I agreed to a shoot date, then canceled with no intention of rescheduling. I enjoy participating and being quoted in articles; I just don’t crave the spotlight and hate being photographed. A few days later I was in Tod’s chatting with a fellow shopper about loafers and the woman mentioned that she loves a blog called Keep it Chic–I realized that she didn’t recognize me as the author because I rarely post pictures of myself.

So, I went back and rescheduled the shoot. Inspired by this image of Claudia, I was photographed outside yesterday in a big coat and sunglasses with my hair (hopefully) covering part of my face.

Fall Tweak

Gucci I have all the coats I’ll need for the cold weather ahead, and I’ve bought far too many ribbed tops, but I’m still craving a little something—let’s call it a fall tweak. Not a staple or basic, I want an item that screams FW14. Hmmm…
