There are so many great spring campaigns, and Frame Denim’s is certainly one of my favorites. Sasha Pivovarova looks gorgeous in Erik Torstensson’s pictures. With the divine George Cortina styling, this was a dream team.
Last week, Mark D. Sikes ran a few posts on botanical prints, which made me think of this picture of Stella Schnabel’s screens in Porter. I’m obsessed
I won’t need to look far and wide for the two items that top my spring list, gladiators and a pretty white dress, because Valentino has both. The only problem is, which one?
Quite simply, here’s what I want to run-around in once the weather warms up. It’s already my basic uniform, I’ve just added new jeans.
There are lots of great jeans options right now, and I’ve decided to update my look with a ’70s-inspired pair. Silver jewelry is new for me, too, and a welcome change. I should raid my mother’s jewelry box, she has loads of pieces just like this ring. If I’m not mistaken, the top of the ring flips open so the wearer can store poison beneath the stone—we often wondered why mother had so many of them…
The jeans run one size small and the sneakers run large.
A pretty white dress and lace-up sandals top my spring list. Stella McCartney’s SS15 campaign starring Natalia Vodianova has both.
This is my favorite look from Stella McCartney’s pre-fall collection, it’s all about the grey wrap skirt. Although I’ve spied quite a few berets recently, not sure I can go there.
A friend I trust when it comes to beauty products just recommended Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream, she said it’s amazing.
It’s been a long time since denim was just for blue jeans. This beautiful story from the upcoming WSJ. Magazine clearly illustrates that the iconic fabric has no limits.

I want this Paco Rabanne pre-fall top now, today—I love everything about it!
Need makeup for a big event? We did, and thankfully the folks at Vera Wang recommended Ashlee Glazer. Ashlee came to our hotel prior to both balls and worked her magic. Not only was the makeup perfection but, Ashlee was adorable and fun and full of great tips. Next up, I’m hiring her to help me with an easy, “no makeup’” look for everyday. Ashlee’s Go-To Products:
Madina Highlight: A product from Italy that’s a fashion week favorite. The perfect champagne gold/silver cream highlighting stick. A dab on the bridge of the nose, cheekbones, and cupids bow gives the perfect glow.
Clairins Beauty-Flash Balm: Lifts, tightens, and smoothes pores. Great way to look fresh, fast.
MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick: The best neutral for all skin tones. It’s that trustworthy color you can apply without looking in the mirror. And, 100% of the selling price goes to those affected with HIV/AIDS– I love to get clients hooked, and I give it as gifts.
YSL Touche Éclat: Brightens and highlights– makes everyone look fresh and well rested.
Best Makeup Tip: When applying blush and bronzer, I like do to a light dusting at the hairline, under the nose, and jawline.This sculpts and frames the face, bringing more attention to the eyes.
Most Common Mistake Women Make: Staying within their comfort zone– trying something new every now and then keeps it fresh!
The fabulous British singer Clare Maguire performed at the Burberry men’s show—a must-watch video.

A well-intentioned friend gave us new year’s cards with fortunes inside. Mine read “You couldn’t be less interesting, but you’re going to keep trying, right?”. Huh?
I’ve been thinking about that fortune (a lot). The upshot is that it’s encouraged me to consider a wider range of women for KiC—women I find interesting, not just for their personal style. The Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola who was profiled in the WSJ this weekend is a good example. I’m fascinated by what she does, how she works, and what inspires her. It’s raining and I may pop in “Paris, Texas”, or pull out Proust for a reread.
Perhaps these interesting women will rub off on me (just kidding)! This is why I stopped reading my horoscope…
