Stress Relief

Aesop

I was chatting with Caroline of Pardon My Obsession last evening and had to cut it short because I’m super stressed-out (sorry Caroline). A snowstorm the day before Thanksgiving is throwing me off my game. I’ve changed my daughter’s flight from L.A. (no easy feat this time of year), and we are all moving into the Waldorf for a night. Ironically, I’ve bought everything for Thanksgiving dinner, which proves I’m not completely losing it.

When all is said and done, I’m going to kick back and try a “rescue me” facial mask—recommendations welcome.

Egon Schiele: Portraits

Egon Schiele It’s overcast and warm, perfect gallery weather. Actually, I’ve had it on my calendar for a few weeks to see the Neue Galerie’s Egon Schiele exhibition today. This portrait of Gerti Schiele, the Austrian artist’s sister, is one of my favorites. I can see Gustav Klimt’s influence, Schiele’s mentor, in this picture.

Saint Laurent campaign

‘Psych Rock’

Saint Laurent

When I saw the show images of this collection last July, I posted that I didn’t think I’d wear it, but was inspired by the looks. It’s the styling of the jewelry, and the jewelry itself, that I find intriguing. Especially the rings.

Josephine And Laurentina

Josephine and Laurentina

A reader commented that KiC was mentioned in a story on Bulgari jewelry creative director Lucia Silvestri in FT’s weekend supplement, How To Spend It. Silvestri was introduced to KiC by my dear friend Leslie Gordon Johnson who, with business partner Cristina Ferraro Cenci, has a line of gorgeous cashmere pieces. Josephine and Laurentina, named after their daughters, makes my favorite cashmere wrap–it’s the perfect travel companion.

Peter Lindbergh + Mariacarla = a winning combo. The story title alone makes me smile. This picture is from a beauty supplement that’s wrapped in with the November issue of Italian Vogue.

On The Hunt For

List Toppers

Gucci

Even though I replaced my lost sunglasses, I’m still on the hunt for a pair with a bit of an edge. These Gucci aviators are pretty good. And my first piece in suede may very well be a Loewe bag–just not sure which one…

Both items in the KiC shop.

Divine Dior

Dior

How stunning is this picture of Jennifer Lawrence from the new Dior campaign? With so much oversized everything these days, it’s refreshing to see a waist. The lace at the neck and button detail make this classic shift modern.

I love the ’70s vibe of the Mango SS15 campaign with model Anna Ewers. I remember my older sister looking just like this.

A Cozy Cardigan

Vogue Paris

I’m not looking for a ladylike twin-set topper, I want a chunky, wrap-myself-up, coatlike cardigan. And I’ve been looking for a while now. TBC.

‘How To Dress Like A Fashion Insider’

WSJ

This story in today’s Wall Street Journal could also be titled ‘How To Build Upon The Perfect Uniform’.  Like many of those interviewed for the article, each season I too add a few new pieces to my existing wardrobe of primarily staples; I liken it to hitting the refresh button without drastically altering my personal style — but the new pieces are key to keeping my uniform from looking stale and dated.

Ravishing

Vogue

I’m not a fan of most American magazine covers, they are often too commercial for my liking. But the December issue of Vogue is an exception, the colors are stunning.

Fargo’s Faves

Fargo's Faves

The Bergdorf Goodman resort catalogue-cum-magazine just hit my mailbox. My favorite page is always ‘Fargo’s Faves’ edited by BG SVP Linda Fargo. Her picks for this issue have a decidedly found-on-my-travels feel and as Linda says “(t)here’s an enticing exoticism to the new season”. On the heels of posting the Gypset books, I think adventure-style is firmly in the air.

Gypset

I’m dying to meet Julia Chaplin, author of the Gypset books, and could if I were in Montecito tonight. Designer Kendall Conrad is hosting an event this evening from 5-7pm to celebrate Julia’s latest book, Gypset Living.

The trio of Gypset books chronicles the lifestyles of ‘Gypsetters’, the bohemian nomads of today. These books are going on my gift list.
