A few weeks ago I ran a post on evening wear with a picture of the Swedish designer Josephine Dahlin wearing an elegant Italian silk dress from her line Deitas. Then I spied Chalotte Groeneveld, a.k.a. The Fashion Guitar, wearing this dress from the SS18 collection. A wrap skirt and jacket with matching pants are also available in this gorgeous color.

Dry Brushing

I’ve read that using a dry body brush before showering is great for circulation and problem spots, but I’ve yet to try it. I may give it a whirl.

Dinner in a Donabe

This sesame arctic char recipe from Bon Appétit looks amazing. It’s made in a ceramic Japanese pot called a donabe, which is easy to use. Yum!

Messy-Weather Wear

With snow predicted for tonight then warmer temps next week, things are bound to get messy. My beloved LL Bean Duck boots, that I’ve had since boarding school, are great for mucky conditions. I’m obsessed with fisherman knit sweaters and wear them under parkas, windbreakers, and even duffel coats. Sometimes old-school is best.

Sweater and tons on Etsy, parka.

March Vogue

‘For Days’

Tonne Goodman’s styling hits all the right notes in this story from March Vogue. I cherry-picked the skirt and dresses because they look so fresh for spring.

FW18 Collection


These FW18 looks from Khaite designer Cate Holstein are right up my alley—beautiful and timeless.

Winter Olympics

Curling Crazy

No, this is not about hair; I’ve been watching the Olympics.

Chloe Kim may be a snowboarding phenom and Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir’s biting skating commentary and matching outfits have been hilarious, but curling has caught my, and seemingly everyones, attention. Could it be the stunning Russian curler Anastasia Bryzgalova?

Anastasia and her husband won the bronze and now I’m hooked on curling—go figure.

Carolina Herrera's final bow

End of an Era

Even though I haven’t worn Carolina Herrera in a few years (my daughter just tried a number of beautiful wedding gowns for an upcoming ball), I am saddened by the news that the perfectly polished Mrs. Herrera will no longer be designing for the company that she founded in 1980. Wes Gordon is a good choice for creative director of the brand going forward, but still, it’s the end of an era. An era that began when women ‘dressed’ and ‘lunched’ and track pants weren’t worn outside of the gym.

An Easy Dress

This Cefinn dress ticks a lot of boxes—the easy shape that looks pulled together, interesting color, the fact that it’s muslin so it won’t wrinkle, and it’s a good price are all pluses. This is my favorite season by Samantha Cameron so far.

Winter White

Lisa Aiken, fashion director of Net-A-Porter, got it right in winter white at NYFW.
