Sasha Pivovarova, photographed by Glen Luchford, looks stunning on the cover of i-D. I’m not sure I’ll adopt the single earring trend, but it sure looks great in editorial, especially this dangler from Louis Vuitton. I Cannot wait to see what Nicolas Ghesquière will send out for L.V. spring 2015.
So many chic women have listed L’Oréal True Match as their beauty secret, I had to try it. The biggest problem was finding the right shade in the terrible pharmacy lighting. But I did, and love it. And you can’t beat the drug store price.
Thanks to a KiC reader who, when I mentioned that my daughter is in college in California and I plan on visiting often, asked if I could consider items for women who live in warmer climates. It’s true that I recommend pieces that suit New York weather, but, I had an “aha” moment when I stumbled upon these Marni sandals. My first thought was that as much as I love them, they are completely impractical for winter in NYC; my second thought, they are perfect for my SoCal readers–Ta da!
If I can’t be at the Paris shows (and I wish could), the next best thing is all the great Instagram snaps from the front row show-goers. I grabbed this pic of the Dries Van Noten finale, with the models lazing on a moss covered runway, from Meenal Mistry of the Wall Street Journal. Global hippie-chic at it’s finest!!
Speaking of trends with more staying power than I expected, culottes have been big, and seem to be getting bigger. Bigger in terms of popularity, although they are ofter quite voluminous too.
I’m not tall enough for most, but these (it may be a skirt, but looks like culottes here) from Christophe Lemaire’s spring 2015 show would work and I love the denim.
So, have you been wearing culottes? Will you come spring 2015?

Mules stormed back on to the fashion scene last year and were a popular spring shoe. Although the satin Altuzarra’s were gorgeous, I knew I wouldn’t wear them often enough. And honestly, I thought that would be that for this shoe trend. But then I spied these by Chloé and realized that this style may have staying power. Love the stacked heel and buckles– I almost bought the flat version this past summer, both are good.
WWD sat down with Julie de Libran, Sonia Rykiel’s new artistic director, before she shows her debut collection for the house next Monday. A huge fan of her work at Louis Vuitton, I am excited to see what de Libran does here, especially after telling WWD she considers the Rykiel brand as “(e)ase and comfort, with a glamo(u)r to it and a feminine touch”. And a woman designing for women is always a good thing in my book.

The upcoming issue of The Edit has a story on Carolyn Murphy (one of my all-time favorite people) photographed wearing layered knits and blanket coats. I’ll admit that I wasn’t a blanket coat fan at first, but as it gets cooler, I may change my opinion on them.
A Fair Isle sweater, loafers, and a new bag topped my fall list. After trying a few sweaters, I found this one by J. Brand (here too) and it’s perfect, and I think these Manolo Blahnik loafers are great, just deciding between black and brown. A bag has been my bugaboo. I really wanted it to be structured, but when it’s structured, it doesn’t hold enough. Instead, I bought a large Céline hobo in off-white. It’s the perfect shape and size, but I haven’t taken it out of the dust bag because I know it’s going to get dirty, and I have to reconcile if I’m okay with that. TBC.
I have officially annoyed my newsagent by repeatedly asking about issue #41 of Self Service. It’s nice to get a peek via Instagram, but it would be even nicer to see the actual issue, it looks amazing.

I love these shoes, they are right up my alley. An updated version of the Valentino pumps I bought and still wear from two years ago, they would go the distance. The Valentino cape and Hermès Kelly aren’t so bad either.

I had a visceral response to the Bottega Veneta show, like love at first sight. Perhaps I’ve found my fashion soulmate in Tomas Maier. These are true spring clothes, the ones I will be excited to wear after a long winter.
Like Sarah Harris of British Vogue, if I had bought this SS13 Céline dress I’d still be wearing it too. It”s just so good.
I am always looking at how other women pull their long hair back, especially with a center part like mine.
