Honey-Hued

Altuzarra

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside”—these lyrics could not be more apt. After seeing the Altuzarra FW15 coat and Vogue’s Emma Morrison snapped on the street, I would love nothing more than to wrap myself up in a honey-hued fur today. A tawny coat now tops my wish list.

No Need To Per-Suede Me

British Vogue

I’ve had my eye on a suede bag, maybe a jacket too, but when I saw this dress in the March issue of British Vogue, I nearly swooned. An easy shift with patch pockets—sign me up!

Dress by Dorothy Perkins.

“What Kind Of Man”

Florence and the Machine

“What Kind of Man”, the first song to drop from the upcoming Florence +  The Machine album How Big How Blue How Beautiful, is really good. Florence Welch barefoot in her boho floor-length Gucci dresses at Jones Beach was a fantastic concert.

Hat Hair Help

Klorane

It’s so cold and windy, very hard to be chic in this weather—especially the hat hair. I keep this small can of Klorane dry shampoo in my office to add a little lift when my hair gets weather flattened.

Klorane now makes a dry shampoo for brunettes, no more white powder residue—woo hoo.

The Céline Ballerinas

Celine

My scallop-edged flats have been worn to death so, I’m looking to replace them. These Céline soft ballerina pumps and flats are going to sell out lickety split but, I’m not so sure they are ‘me’. I love the dance-inspired sensibility–I’ll go across the street and try them. TBC.

Winter White

This Tommy Ton pic on style.com reminded me that I’ve been wearing white jeans a lot this winter. Paired with Penelope Chilvers boots and an army green parka pretty much sums up my current uniform. I’m attempting to lighten my cold-weather look; i.e. to not wear black all the time.

I wore all black to a Valentine’s Day lunch yesterday and felt a bit like the grim reaper. Granted, I don’t own any red or pink, and white jeans would not have been appropriate but, I should have dug out a few light neutral pieces.

All Wrapped Up, Cont.

Miu MiuThese Miu Miu gladiators may be the ones. I love the espadrille sole and the price is more in line with what I want to pay for a super trendy item—a win-win.

The Three Sirens

Vogue Paris

Daria, Kate, and Lara—the March covers just get better and better. The trio were photographed by Mert & Marcus—I’m sure this issue of Vogue Paris will be a keeper.

‘The Appeal Of Wide’

My friend Mary and I have been going back and forth about flares for a few months now—she bought the Gucci denim sailor pants and loves them. I’ve tried the Saint Laurent flared patch pocket jeans and just can’t decide. But, after reading this persuasive article in last weekend’s WSJ, I’m going to make a concerted effort to find flares that suit me; I bet that I will live in them. And when I find that perfet pair, I’ll buy two—one to wear with flats, and one to wear with wedges/platforms.

P.S. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worn them before, it’s whether they work for you now. Also, a flare is not necessarily a bell-bottom, there are variations on this theme.

Hot Rollers

Conair

For an updated evening look, I want loose, Gisele-like curls. Hot rollers seem to be the ticket and these could be good, but I’m open to suggestions.

On My Inspiration Board

Spring Wish List

After sifting through images of the SS15 collections, posts from last fall, and my inspiration board pics, I’ve put together a spring wish list.

The picture of the Hermès ankle-wrap sandals from a few seasons ago, coupled with the weak euro, motivated me to order a few pairs of custom K. Jacques sandals. I’ll post on them when they come in.

A sterling cuff tops my list and I love this one by Saint Laurent.

I have a pair of Valentino gladiator sandals on pre-order (these pictured are Chloé), but, every time I see them in a story, the back strip is not flat against the leg. TBC.

The Bottega Veneta collection has a number of pieces that I would wear forever. I’m going to try a few of the dresses and one of the jackets. There is also a suede jacket at Loewe that I have my eye on.

I love the saddle bag but, I only wear crossbody over a coat. Could work over a jacket.

The Céline barrette is going to be a tough find—only 4 are coming to the U.S. and I’ve been told that it’s very heavy. However, I’m inspired by the look and will try to find something similar.

Ta da!
