Spring seems to be taking its sweet time and I’m very ready to store my wool coats and transition into jacket weather. This quirky story in May Vogue starring actress Leelee Sobieski has the right idea. I still love the Balmain blazer in the bottom photo.

During the years I cast the Louis Vuitton show under Marc Jacobs I acquired a number of pieces of monogrammed luggage that I still use all the time. However, I haven’t carried a traditional canvas LV handbag in years—I think that’s about to change. Once again, Vestiaire,The Real Real,Farfetch (has a ton), and Shopbop have many and they look great a bit pre-loved.
I posted on the classic scarf last fall, but, I’ve yet to wear one and I have a number of beautiful scarves that should see the light of day. I’m just not sure how to style it without looking matronly. Both The Real Real and Vestiaire have vintage Hermès scarves.
From April until early June, I have a number of lunches, a graduation, and other sundry events that require a ladylike look. I’ve been eyeing the multi-hoop trend and love this pair because they are light-weight. This dress could be worn a number of times if I switch up the accessories, the price point is kind, and could easily go from day to evening. A styling note: with the low-cut armholes, I will wear a black tank underneath. These Saint Laurent mules have been on my list for a few seasons—it’s time to give them a test drive.
A request for my French readers—please translate the title of this fabulous Vogue Paris story. I’ve run it through Google translator and it came up with “The Era of Large”, whatever that means… It’s great to see an editorial that celebrates classic dressing—I’m so tired of the plethora of unwearable clothes on offer these days.
A few days after I gave my Gucci “GG” belt to my daughter, my friend Karima, editor of A Note on Style, posted on the new Givenchy GV3. After four years I’m looking to update my black belt with something a bit more understated.
In all the years that I’ve edited kic, I don’t think I’ve ever posted a summer must-haves collage without including a straw market basket—I even give the small ones as hostess gifts. Well, move over straw, these Dragon Diffusion woven-leather rattan totes look fresh right now.
