  • At the risk of dating myself, I remember when those triangle head scarfs were in style. Madras was a popular fabric choice. I was too young to embrace it ( honest), but girls only a few years older than I did. Remember turbans? I have an old Vogue pattern for one, I’d love to make one.

  • Preston,

    I love the white boxy top. I love, love the sleeve length. Who is the designer?

    Also, love, love your posts.

  • I have a longer denim skirt but have not worn it in years, may have to pull it out. Very 70’s. Might have to try it with the Marant clogs!

  • I love my to the knee denim skirt but it’s dark denim, and I love the lighter wash. i want a boxy top in every color this season!! Do you know who makes the white one!

  • As always Preston, the looks are fabulous- thanks for sharing!

    I love the bracelets as well, but can we just say that the bracelets are fantastic and leave it at that? Because there is nothing chic about slavery and I think we’ve come a long way from using that word to describe the clothing/jewelry/shoes we wear today, no? Just a thought…

  • I too love the white boxy top. Not sure if its the top or the person wearing it but it hangs so nicely . Sometimes a boxy top can be well, boxy and not complement the wearer. Who makes this one?
