On My Radar
Not even two years old, Khaite has made it’s mark. The stunning campaigns featuring Kirsty Hume and Sasha Pivovarova certainly have aided in extending the brand’s awareness. Although pricey, the quality (the cashmere is incredible) and simple design elements are what make Khaite such a standout.

…or at least not in my book. Now that it’s cooler and and the windows are shut tight, I pull out my favorite candles. A huge fan of rose, I’ve ordered this one by Byredo and will let you know if it makes the cut.
This week has been a blur and I cannot wait to get into bed with a bunch of new books and magazines. First up will be WSJ. Magazine‘s Innovators Issue, which is on newsstands today. Reese Witherspoon looks fantastic in Cass Bird’s photographs and I’m sure Derek Blasberg’s interview will be a good read.
The hoops in the Céline Resort collection are all really good, the sunglasses too.
On the Hunt For
I’ve been on the hunt for a substantial pair of gold hoop earrings. The last pair I tried were way too big. These by Sophie Buhai seem to be the right size and heft. Tbc.
On My Mind
I have no Tinker Bells or witches this year—we are actually heading out for a college interview and won’t even be home. For all of you with small children or grandchildren, save me a peanut butter cup!
How To Tie
A few readers asked how I wear a headscarf and the top left is my preferred style. Love these Hermès how-to cards.
Stylist Géraldine Saglio used a bright headscarf on Julia Bergshoeff in Inez & Vinoodh’s story for the Danish issue of Holiday Magazine. I have my eye on a Gucci dark floral scarf—would be a nice fall tweak.
You’d have to be living under a rock to not know about the documentary Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold, which was released on Netflix yesterday. I’ve read mixed reviews but am eager to see it nonetheless. I may try to do a double feature and also watch Franca: Chaos & Creation, Francesco Carrozzini’s film about his mother the legendary Vogue Italia editor.
The fifties-inspired structured bag is having quite a moment, especially in this November Vogue Paris story. I think it looks modern with jeans and an oversized sweater. BTW, the tee in that collage is getting rave reviews.
