My Music

‘Running Up That Hill’

’80s styles were not my thing except for anything by the early minimalist designer Zoran — I had a closetful and wish I still had every piece. But, I digress. Kate Bush was my ’80s music muse and Meg Myers‘ cover of Bush’s love anthem “Running Up That Hill” is fantastic.

Something Pretty

Three enormous boxes filled with wardrobe basics (jeans, tailored pants, leather leggings, and a satin slip dress) arrived yesterday. The slip dress and leggings are keepers, the rest doesn’t fit. It’s so hard for me to find trousers to begin with, online is an extra challenge.

While trying on black and grey items, I had a yen for something pretty. This Prada tunic is on my Resort list — the embroidery, smocked neck, and easy shape are right up my alley. Might look good over the leather leggings…

On My Mind

Making Lists

Along with Barneys’ imminent liquidation are the upcoming sales. I usually look for fun, fashion-forward items on sale, but this season I’m widening my search to include a few wardrobe staples that have eluded me. November = Resort deliveries and thinking about Spring, so I’ve got three lists going at once.

Keeping Classics Chic

Yesterday’s post on classics got me thinking about how to wear them, especially at my age, without looking mumsy. The Irié sweater above could have been styled with jeans for a great weekend look, but tucked into this skirt is a modern take. A fisherman-knit sweater with a satin midi skirt, a trim cardigan in lieu of a top under a blazer, tailored pants in black leather — you get the idea. To be continued.

I ♥ Classics

An A-line skirt, cable-knit turtleneck, tailored pant, camel coat, crewneck, and cardigan sweater — sigh.

On the hunt for

So Easy

An Anine Bing black satin skirt is a hero piece in my wardrobe and I wear it all year long. However, I want to replicate the sweater over a satin slip dress in a post from last week — it’s just so easy. I have the tan Vince turtleneck above (runs very large) and now I’m on the hunt for a complementary satin dress. The color of this Nili Lotan looks good, but it may not be long enough. I’ll let you know.

On My Radar

To Watch & Hear

At an over-the-top Chanel event last summer I met Anne Keane, the Fashion Strategy Director of GOOP, and she mentioned that her sister was turning the New York Times ‘Modern Love’ column into an Amazon series. I’ve been bingeing and the stories are fabulous. Two weeks ago I went to a screening of ‘Scandalous’, Jennifer Ash Rudick‘s new documentary, and it is fabulous, too — her best yet. And, Vogue Paris created episodes of ‘Une Fille Un Style’ on Youtube. Lots to watch.

If you remember and liked Creedence Clearwater Revival, then you should listen to Caamp’s ‘Peach Fuzz’. And, I know it’s not new, but I still love ‘Dance Monkey’ by Tones and I.

By Far

The Bulgarian brand By Far, which launched in 2016, is new on my radar. I love the square-toe and heel height on the “Edie” boot above and will give the tan pair a test drive — could be perfect with a midi length skirt.
