I ♥ Argyle

Sale prices have dropped even lower and there are still a number of great pieces to be had. This Isabel Marant argyle sweater (variations here, here, and here) has my name on it.

Books

Hair by Sam McKnight

I completely messed up on the date for Sam’s book signing in NYC last evening, but, I’m still going to pick up his new book to see if there are any images that we worked on together.

Ultimate gifts

Dear Santa

While perusing the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book last evening, I dog-eared the pages with items that I’d be more than happy to find under the tree. There are three new songs out that would sound great on vinyl- ‘In A Black Out‘ by Hamilton Leithauser + RostamMondo Cozmo‘s ‘Shine‘, and ‘Human‘ by Rag’n’Bone Man. A table tennis (ping pong) fanatic, I’d even consider swapping out a major piece of furniture to accommodate this table.

Wide-Leg Jeans

untitled-121116

A few years ago I had my eye on a pair of Louis Vuitton wide-leg jeans, but for some reason I didn’t pull the trigger. As I recall, they were uncomfortably high-waisted. I did end up buying a pair by Frame, however, I’m still looking for a darker wash. These two are certainly contenders.

Nili Lotan PF17

Long & Lean, Cont.

Either of these Nili Lotan PF17 looks would be a chic and comfortable hostess outfit, especially for a dinner at home–too bad they won’t be in stores until July…

Hostess Gifts

To Give

I don’t try to reinvent the wheel every year with hostess gifts, but I do change-up a few items. This holiday season my uber stylish friends will get a copy of The New Garconne or an indie magazine that’s tailored to their interests. Note pads from Mrs. Strong and The Printery, teas from Ladurée, and candles (Izola and Kobo) are good gifts to stockpile and have on hand for last minute invitations. Mouth has delicious offerings for folks far away. And paper whites, topiaries, and pies are always appreciated.

Happy Times

The wind is blowing off the Sound with a fury. When stuck inside during the cold months, I start thinking about how to make my home cozier. These pictures of Lee Radziwill’s Park Avenue apartment circa 1982, from her gem of a book Happy Times, are always a good place to start.

Domino

‘A Sizable Feast’

I’m super inspired by this story on “one-dish wonders” from chef Camille Becerra in the winter issue of Domino—they look yummy and spectacular.

Pre-Fall Trends

Fun over-the-knee socks at Missoni and Carolina Herrera (lots of fab knit bits at Herrera, surprisingly), and striped dresses at Victoria Beckham and Protagonist.
