On The Hunt For

The One Piece

A new swimsuit is in order—this one by Next, from a story in the May issue of Vogue UK, is good-looking and practical.

Courrèges Style Director Lolita Jacobs

Matchesfashion.com sat down with Lolita Jacobs, the newly appointed style director to the iconic French house Courrèges. The Parisian’s pared-down personal style and list of favorite designers are right up my alley.

The Spring Jacket

A spring jacket fell off my list a few years ago (along with a spring coat) because the window of opportunity to wear it was too short to justify the cost. However, this one by Vince is so cute and well-priced, I’d wear it now with a turtleneck sweater and then a tank when the temps warm up—a win-win item.

‘Classic Sequence’

There are lots of great neutrals in this story from the May issue of British Vogue. I love the Lisa Taylor vibe and the Hermès silver bracelet in the top image.

Shine On

April and May are always packed with events—lunches, benefits, weddings, etc.–a mad dash before summer. I had my eye on the Miu Miu glitter sandals last winter, but didn’t buy them in the end. My friend Paula did, and they look great on her. One of these sandals would add just a bit of shine to a spring dress I already own.

Haute Couture

The Valentino S16 Haute Couture collection is breathtakingly beautiful. Wish I had a reason to buy one of these dresses.

Viviana Volpicella Inspired

Italian stylist Viviana Volpicella has personal style in spades, which is why I follow her on Instagram. I’m in a bit of a wardrobe rut and had an ‘aha’ moment when I saw this pic. I’ve worn my navy blazer with jeans since forever—here it looks so chic on V.V. over a fuller pant. Going to give this pairing a try.

It’s A Wrap

Paired with a T-shirt (or white shirt) and sandals (slides, loafers, or flatforms), this wrap denim skirt will anchor my warm weather uniform.

Trench & Pumps

Carine Roitfeld in a trench, and quite possibly, the Gucci FW16 pumps—the French editor always gets it right.

Thank You, Hedi

After months of speculation, Kering confirmed today that Hedi Slimane is in fact leaving Saint Laurent. The announcement coincides with the end of the designer’s four year contract with the house. The news is not a surprise, but I am sad nonetheless. My wardrobe certainly benefitted from Mr. Slimane’s vision—thank you, Hedi, for the perfect grey pea coat, evening bag, clogs, Fair Isle sweater, booties, etc; items that I cherish.

Pump & Slide

 

Untitled-033016

Another perfect pump from Gucci—I like the higher heel. And, I’ve been living in the horsebit slides, especially while in L.A.

Pumps and slides.

Saint Laurent

Hands down, my favorite  PF16 collection was Hedi Slimane’s for Saint Laurent. The campaign images, photographed by the designer, are pretty great, too.

Feit

A few days after a friend raved about the accessories line Feit, I saw these slip-ons lined up in the Jenni Kayne shop—synchronicity. Talk about a beautifully made, understated loafer. Completely timeless, too.

#ILoveMyFamily

The artist Kathy Leeds uses the hashtag #ILoveMyFamily when she posts pictures of loved ones on Instagram; it’s the perfect title for this post. I’m in Los Angeles with my daughters for Spring Break. We’ve been to the beach, museums, and the Brentwood Country Mart more times than I can count, but the highlights of the trip have been visits with family. And just being together, especially now that one daughter is in college, is precious. At the end of the day, family is all that really matters.
