Black Shorts

After I put up the previous post on shorts, some thoughtful comments came in.

I only have the Frame shorts in black, so I cannot address the complaint about the white ones turning pink. But, I do understand the length issue and have searched for a few longer pairs, and will keep searching as we head into spring.

Regarding the “of the moment” comment– many women prefer frayed cutoffs, I like these.  However, last year I ran a post on a frayed denim skirt and got some comments that went off track, so I took it down. But really, to each her own.

Ah, the age question, my favorite! I believe that if you love something and it’s not too revealing/tight/short etc., then wear it. I know lots of women over 70 who wear Stan Smith sneakers, skinny jeans, and shorts!

My Favorite Shorts

These are my favorite shorts– denim cutoffs but not frayed, and super comfortable because they have some stretch (I recommend going down a size). When I spotted them last year I snapped them up; black shorts are not always easy to find.

Frame shorts black and white.

Photographer Sandra Semburg

Paris and Berlin-based photographer Sandra Semburg shoots the street style pics for Vogue Paris and they are simply the best. Ms. Semburg always photographs the chicest show-goers and captures the details that I find so inspiring. Maybe it’s a woman thing…

I was heading out to a get a hair cut when I spotted this picture–I canceled the appointment.

I ♥ This Jacket

It may be a tad cliché to pair white with tan accessories, but who cares when it looks so good. The Marni belted jacket is a forever piece.

Sander Lak’s third Sies Marjan show is full of the beautiful colors he’s come to be known for. However, the beige looks are lovely, too.

The Clasp Bag

I’ve seen a few NYFW show attendees carrying the Céline top-handle Clasp bag and it looks lovely. Sadly, I just gave away a vintage version.

Coco Rouge

I’ve been cleaning up kic– deleting tons of outdated posts, etc, and I came across this story on Vanessa Traina’s essentials and the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick caught my eye. I’m going to Chanel PR on Monday to see a couture presentation and a bit of lipstick would be a good idea.

FW17 Collection

The New Calvin Klein

The highly anticipated Calvin Klein show opened with this red, white, and blue look–Raf Simons’ nod to American style is the theme of his debut collection for the house. Denim, cowboy boots, and quilts look fresh through the Belgian designer’s lens. I recommend watching the live stream of the show.
