My Music

The Shelters

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a music post, and there have been a number of great songs released in the last few months so I need to do a bit of catch-up. The Los Angeles-based band The Shelters (discovered by Tom Petty, no less) deserve a shout out. Their eponymous debut album is really good and I have the tracks “Liar” and “Rebel Heart”  on repeat.

Going Green

I was an early adopter of the Gucci slides, sans fur, and I wear them all the time. Now that the temps are finally falling, I’m reconsidering a furry pair. Green is beyond good.

The Gentlewoman

‘Tonal’

I always seem to find great sweaters on sale, perhaps because I’m a bit more flexible with sizing. A little too big/too small—who cares when it’s 50%-75% off! This DSQUARED2 cardigan would make my day.

Hostess Gifts

Mouth

My older daughter is staying in L.A. for Thanksgiving break to work on her senior thesis. Initially, she was going to a friend’s home where the mother is Paleo, so I had a Paleo Mouth gift box in my cart. As is often the case, my daughter’s plans changed and now she is going home with her roommate for Thanksgiving dinner. I know that it’s unseasonably warm in L.A., but maybe the Hot Chocolate Kit would help them get into the holiday spirit. Anything from Mouth would be a good hostess gift, actually.

Films

‘Nocturnal Animals’

All I know about Tom Ford’s new film “Nocturnal Animals” is that it’s a thriller and stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. I’ve avoided reading the reviews and cannot wait to see it this weekend.

Net-A-PORTER Ski Shop

Stars & Stripes

After I posted ‘Ski Trip’ last week, I reached out to NET-A-PORTER and offered to showcase some of the really cute Perfect Moment pieces in their new Ski Shop. I’m obsessed with this line—the striped jacket is just the right amount of retro, and the prices are good, too.

A Really Good Dress

This Céline dress has my name on it, I’d wear it forever. I’m so ready for Resort to hit the stores, and I’ve only just started wearing puffers and boots—go figure.

Health

The Moon Juice Cookbook

Amanda Chantal Bacon, healthy-eating guru and founder of the Los Angeles-based Moon Juice shops, recently added a cookbook to her wellness empire. I went to the NYC launch party to congratulate the lovey author. We’d been introduced by our mutual friend Agnes Baddoo and Amanda and I chatted before she came East. I asked the native New Yorker if she has plans to open a Moon Juice here—her products, especially the plant-sourced alchemical blends and green drinks, have gone global. Although a NYC shop is on her to-do list, it’s not, sadly, imminent. Fortunately, many online stores stock Amanda’s Moon Dusts, and they can also be ordered directly from the Moon Juice site.

On The Hunt For

The Peasant Blouse

Admittedly, I am a bit late to the party on this one. My chicest friend Mary, whom I’ve asked to do a Spring Picks guest post, has been going on about the Atlantique Ascoli blouses (top left) for months, and by the time I tuned in, many were sold out. I started searching in earnest after seeing the fab puff-sleeved peasant-inspired tops in the phenomenal SS17 Jacquemus show (top right.) This would be a perfect fall tweak that would carry over into spring, and beyond.

Ascoli blouses here, here, and here.

Vogue Italia

The neutral palette is the star of this December Vogue Italia story. Her brows are good, too.
