‘Natural Selection’

One of my favorite trends is pastoral prints inspired by traditional wallpapers. The Erdem collection is exceptionally lovely.

On My Mind


Some of my favorite FW15 looks were by Prada. The trim suit silhouettes, especially, inspired me to pull out a Prada double-breasted, black jacket that I wear with black pants. I think this outfit is my backlash to all the oversized knits (Snuggie style) from recent years. It’s nice, at times, to feel a bit more buttoned-up and polished.

Next up, I have my eye on the Chanel Pre-Fall jacket and skirt. I’d wear the jacket forever.

‘Point Blanc’

Although I did  a major handbag clean-out recently, I kept an Hermès Trim in white. After seeing this story from the upcoming WSJ. Magazine, I’m glad that I did.

I have a black tie event later this month and I’m already thinking/stressing about what to wear. A pic of this Chanel Pre-Fall dress is pinned to my inspiration board—it’s divine.

‘Day Dreams’

2015 was an amazing year for my wardrobe; I filled all the holes, and then some. After numerous seasons hunting for the same few items, I finally found the perfect coat, bags, and pumps. This is good because, as I look at the SS16 offerings, the fashion sands seem to have shifted away from my comfort zone. This isn’t necessarily bad, it just means that I will be shopping for pieces that are more fashion-forward; pieces that will add a bit of zing to my closet (and hopefully won’t make my husband snicker).

This story by Craig McDean is from the February issue of W.

India Hicks

A few weeks ago, I went to an India Hicks meet-and-greet. Over cocktails, India introduced her eponymous collection of bags, scarves, jewelry, accessories, and fragrances. Animated and full of excitement for her new line, Ms. Hicks is her own best advertisement. I bought the English Rose perfume in a rollerball and absolutely love it—it’s perfect for traveling.

On My Mind

Food Rut

Rye bread? check, spring mix salad? check, milk? chicken? broccoli? check, check, check…  Sadly, I go to the market almost daily and always end up buying the same things. Yesterday, when the swordfish looked iffy I remembered this salad in Domino and bought shrimp instead. Shrimp is ridiculously easy to cook, so why don’t I buy it more often? Because it’s not on my mental grocery list, a list that is overdue for a shake-up.

Spring Campaigns

The Valentino team went on location in Kenya for their SS16 campaign; fitting since the collection was inspired by Africa. The images are beautiful.
