Street style photographer and Deveaux creative director Tommy Ton paired loafers with his fantastic FW19 collection — so good.
Another sublime showing from The Row. Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen’s FW19 collection is a continuation of their exquisite take on minimalism. The cowl necks and coats were, for me, the highlights.
Daniel Lee, Bottega Veneta’s creative director, has designed two new bags for the house and The Pouch is super chic. Oversized and slouchy, I may break my “no clutch” rule and give it a test drive. Tan, khaki green, white.

After the holidays, there were a few loose ends I needed to tie-up. A present for my daughter’s friend who escorted her to a ball was top of the list. Last time around I gave the boys cuff link boxes, but the ones I bought a few years ago are no longer being made. At this same time, I received the above Smythson Trinket case from a dear friend. Despite being a Smythson nut (all of my stationery is in their beautiful blues) it didn’t occur to me to look there for a gift. Et, voilà! Not only did I find the perfect cufflink boxes, which I bought in navy and monogrammed in red, but a new travel jewelry pouch for yours truly. Hey, it’s almost Valentine’s Day, I can treat myself…
Laura Lombardi’s jewelry has been on my radar for a while, and this is her best collection, yet. The Brooklyn-based designer’s signature chain-link pieces and twisted hoops are easy to wear and nicely priced — a true win-win.
Carolyn Murphy is on one of the Vogue Germany March issue covers (Miuccia Prada and Isabella Rossellini are on the other two). Personally and professionally, I’ve always had a soft spot for Carolyn – she’s just an amazing human being. I love these pictures from the accompanying story and the jewelry caught my eye.

Yesterday I wrote about my mother’s jewelry that has come to me. Along with the iconic pieces, there are lots of charm bracelets, antique watches, brooches, etc. — things I don’t normally wear. Brooches were not on my radar until last week when I posted the picture of Miuccia Prada wearing a beautiful pair. I was thinking of having some of Mother’s made into pendants, but now I’m not so sure. There’s something lovely about a brooch.

Many readers have commented that they are buying more jewelry since clothing and handbag prices are often not justifiable. Recently I was given a number of my mother’s iconic pieces and I’ve been wearing her Bulgari B.zero 1 four band ring mixed in with my signet and Cartier Trinity. The Tiffany bracelet in both pictures would be a welcome addition to my everyday jewelry uniform.
