‘Everybody’s Fool’

Oh, happy day!  There’s a new Richard Russo novel out—a sequel to one of his best, no less. ‘Everybody’s Fool’ will be my first beach read.

Pre-Fall 2016 Campaign

The New Céline Bag

Moments after Céline released the Pre-Fall images, the campaign dropped. This bag, tucked up under the arm (and here), has my name on it.

Cherry Red

A few months ago, I posted on the Gucci slide in burgundy and my friend Mary has been searching for a pair ever since (to no avail). Maybe she’ll like them in bright red for summer.

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2016

Studs

Proenza Schouler just released images of their Pre-Fall collection. Although presented in January, the designers delayed sharing the looks until closer to the delivery date. I’m digging the studs on all the footwear.

Hue

After trying a number of pricey lipsticks, I’ve gone back to my go-to by MAC. Mixed with a little lip balm, Hue is my favorite summer shade.

Sweater Weather

Sadly, Spring is taking it’s own sweet time. I haven’t put my big sweaters away, yet—they are in heavy rotation worn tucked under a bomber.

Made With Love

At the risk of sounding sappy, my girls are the greatest gifts I’ve ever received. We have a homemade-presents-only rule and I don’t expect anything from my husband, I’m not his mother. It’s too cold for a picnic, so a cozy day at home is planned.

I first ran this post four years ago, but it still applies–Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

‘The Hinge Of The Decade’

IMG_0296

I’ve been mulling over the state of fashion—it feels like there is a seismic shift taking place, and I’m not talking about the merry-go-round of designers and houses. I sense that fashion is finding new footing.

Sarah Harris addresses this shift in an article in the June issue of British Vogue. Ms. Harris argues that we tend to define a decade by a single style, a style that doesn’t usually come about until midway through the ten year span. For example, she points out that “it was as late as the mid-Sixties when hemlines rose to mini levels (during the first half of the decade, women were still swathed in the romance of Fifties-style full skirts). Meanwhile, Seventies silk-jersey dressing wasn’t introduced to [the pages of Vogue] until 1976.”  The Angela Carter quote Ms. Harris pulled aptly defines this moment in fashion as “the hinge of the decade, when we start to realize what we look like.”

So, are we at the “hinge” of this decade? I think we are. Ms. Harris chose these looks, from the FW16 collections, to illustrate the oversized, sports-inspired (hoodies, slogan T-shirts, tracksuit trousers, chunky tread soles), urban streetwear influenced, comfort-driven, practical, somewhat disruptive, and individuality-focused style that may come to typify the 2010s.

On My Mind

Sequins?

Sequins seem to be everywhere, and not just at the Met Gala. I loved the SS15 Dior turtleneck, it looked fresh last year. But I’m not convinced that the new crop of sequins on offer is a good thing. Perhaps, as with metallics, a little goes a long way.

Shine On, Cont.

Metallics have never been my thing, until this season. Now, I think they look fresh and add a little something to an everyday look.
