A Touch of Gold

I spy some chic gold shoes at Berlin Fashion Week. The strappy Jimmy Choo pair were on my spring list and look too good on Camille Charrière to pass up. The Gucci Marmont loafer is an evergreen item, too.

‘Tennis Style: The Chic Return of Wimbledon White’

Wimbledon’s mandate that players wear all-white tennis court attire is okay by me, it’s less distracting. The Wall Street Journal takes a look at the British tournament’s strict dress code.

Kendall Conrad in Nili Lotan

Long & Lean

In late April, I attended an evening wedding in NYC. Black tie is always a challenge, so I was interested in what the chic crowd would wear. Designer Kendall Conrad showed up in this Nili Lotan gown. Granted, at 5’10’ with a Southern California sun-kissed complexion, the ex model could wear a paper bag and still be the standout in the room. But, in this dress, Kendall was positively stunning. The floor-length sheath’s simple design is basically a blank canvas for accessories—a true forever piece.

Dress also available final sale here.

Rosewater

I carry a small bottle of Jurlique Rosewater in my bag, especially on hot days. Reminds me of my mother spritzing herself with Evian and it smells heavenly.

‘Fashion Week’

The news of photographer Bill Cunningham’s death reminded me of this timeless February 2002 Harper’s Bazaar story starring Carolyn Murphy as a fashion editor. I got roped into being an extra, too…

Let’s Go (to) London!

London calling—this is a great time to cross the pond, so I asked Tablet Hotels to put together an enticing collage of London hotels. If the weakening pound isn’t enough of an incentive, Wimbledon starts today—let’s go!

This Proenza Schouler slide, $530. in the U.S., is now $377. at Matches Fashion. It’s a good time to go to London, too.

Summer Dress Obsessed

Beyond Bombay

My collection of little summer dresses has grown thanks to Ashley Kadakia, founder of Beyond Bombay.

While cruising the Brick Church spring boutique in April I stopped in my tracks when I spied Ashley’s trio of dresses top. I bought two in white and asked if she’d consider making it in black. Ashely sources all of her items and beautiful textiles from India so it took a few weeks to fulfill my request. When the black version arrived, I threw it on over a black slip and have pretty much worn it non-stop—it’s the perfect go-anywhere summer dress.

I left a comment re. fit and posted a pic of myself in the black dress on Instagram @keepitchic

‘Dior Is Expected to Name Maria Grazia Chiuri as Artistic Director’

The NYT’s reported earlier today that Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Valentino co-creative director, is heading to Dior. She will be the house’s first female leader. Stunning news in my book; very exciting, too.

‘Closer to Fine’

This WSJ. Magazine story may be about “new, cool takes on couture” but, I’d argue, it’s also about the model’s incredible hair.  On newsstands June 25.
