A few months ago I put a Vanessa Seward red dress in the kic shop and eyed it from time to time. My friend bought it and loves it, but, by the time I decided to try it, my size was sold out. The Joseph dress on the left is in my cart, it looks like a forever piece.

Women’s tennis is certainly interesting these days with Serena on hiatus while pregnant and Venus back in the game in a big way. At Wimbledon, Kerber and Halep are out, and Magdalena Rybarikova above just beat Coco Vandeweghe—the women’s semi final matches should be exciting.
These Steven Meisel pictures are from an extensive story in the July issue of Vogue Italia—the first issue under editor in chief Emanuele Farneti. The casting is terrific.
I’ve yet to be bitten by the jumpsuit bug, but Milan-based architect Barbara Ghidoni of the firm Storage Associati looks pretty fab in this one. Her tank watch and single bangle are chic, too.

This navy, wool-felt, duffel-esque Prada jacket is so adorable, I put together a look just so I could post on it—shameless, I’m aware. And did I mention that the hood is detachable? I’m smitten.

On My Mind
Wimbledon is my favorite tournament and it’s on while I work. Now that my girls are older, I am freed up and can work more. I’ve been thinking (and learning) about real estate and how I love to look at houses, much the same way that I look at shoes and bags. As with fashion, it’s all in the details when it comes to a good house, which brings me to the indoor and outdoor courts at this 1920s brick Georgian home (and it’s for sale!) in Lattingtown, NY—for a tennis fanatic like myself, it doesn’t get much better than this.
Please let me know if you would like more information on this amazing house.
I posted on these Chloé Perry pumps just moments after I saw them on the runway last March. The ankle strap and brogue detail are like a siren song to me. Not sure if I’ll go with a t-strap, or which color, but I do know that a pair is on my fall wish list.
Beige t-strap and here, brown t-strap, grey t-strap, burgundy ankle strap.

These Valentino Haute Couture gowns are simply breathtaking— bravo Pierpaolo Piccioli.
Harper's Bazaar Australia
With all the mid-calf and ankle-grazing silhouettes these days, the mini looks fresh to my eye. A few inches above the knee is good. Love these Pamela Hanson pictures in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia.
I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Fourth up, my dear friend, Midwest-based mom of three boys, Mary Watson:
“These RL white jeans are my favorites for this holiday. I prefer boy/straight cut or men’s—the same with my raw APC’s, they suit me. I am in love with white selvedge—RL, The Row, and Levi’s 501 made in USA are the best!
I collect flags and just got a Kate Schelter watercolor of one this week”. Mary
Happy 4th of July!
