It Item

A Touch of Gold, Cont.

Now that I have the Jimmy Choo metallic pumps, which add just the right amount of shine to my everyday uniform, I’m thinking that this Saint Laurent clutch may do the same for my evening looks.

Running Out For Bread

Quite simply, this post is about running out for bread. Not just any bread mind you, She Wolf Bakery sprouted rye. My husband brings a loaf home twice a week from an open market near his office, but with the holiday weekend, we won’t have any left by Tuesday morning. So, my daughter and I went to Marlow & Daughters in Brooklyn to stock up. When in Williamsburg on a Saturday, Smorgasburg is a must. After eating an embarrassing amount of good food, we came home and walked 5 miles…

A Touch of Gold

I spy some chic gold shoes at Berlin Fashion Week. The strappy Jimmy Choo pair were on my spring list and look too good on Camille Charrière to pass up. The Gucci Marmont loafer is an evergreen item, too.

‘Tennis Style: The Chic Return of Wimbledon White’

Wimbledon’s mandate that players wear all-white tennis court attire is okay by me, it’s less distracting. The Wall Street Journal takes a look at the British tournament’s strict dress code.

Kendall Conrad in Nili Lotan

Long & Lean

In late April, I attended an evening wedding in NYC. Black tie is always a challenge, so I was interested in what the chic crowd would wear. Designer Kendall Conrad showed up in this Nili Lotan gown. Granted, at 5’10’ with a Southern California sun-kissed complexion, the ex model could wear a paper bag and still be the standout in the room. But, in this dress, Kendall was positively stunning. The floor-length sheath’s simple design is basically a blank canvas for accessories—a true forever piece.

Dress also available final sale here.

I carry a small bottle of Jurlique Rosewater in my bag, especially on hot days. Reminds me of my mother spritzing herself with Evian and it smells heavenly.

The news of photographer Bill Cunningham’s death reminded me of this timeless February 2002 Harper’s Bazaar story starring Carolyn Murphy as a fashion editor. I got roped into being an extra, too…

Let’s Go (to) London!

London calling—this is a great time to cross the pond, so I asked Tablet Hotels to put together an enticing collage of London hotels. If the weakening pound isn’t enough of an incentive, Wimbledon starts today—let’s go!
