Ooh, these are good!

Slippers! With white jeans and a fisherman knit sweater, who wouldn’t want to run around in these?

Chic this Week

This post from Garance Doré really resonated with me. I can talk about long layers, booties, and boxy tops, but real style is not just the clothes you wear, and her comments were a nice reminder.

Thanks to the Tory Burch blog, I saw that my fave artist Elizabeth Peyton’s new book, a collection of her paintings of rock stars, is out.

My Insta-pick of the week– Kristina O’Neill with her daughter.listdivider

And my last favorite bit, you can see the new issue being printed at Self Service– I cannot wait for n’39.

Enough Said

“(A) small miracle of a movie” according to  The New York Times. Coupled with the great review is the sad fact that this is one of James Gandofini’s final movie roles, a good enough reason for me to go see it.

The Boxy Top cont.

My friend Natalie pairs a boxy top with a skirt and it works. I took a pass on these Valentino pumps, they make me think of spats.

Fall Fare

I am a New Englander at heart despite all my years in NYC, and fall is one of my favorite seasons because it is so dramatic in the Northeast. Now that it’s cooler I’ve pulled out sweaters and long pants, but I will not turn the heat on yet.

A long hike this weekend is in order (I’m already thinking about the weekend and it’s only Thursday, sad) with a picnic of cheeses, fruit, and wine. A nice respite from all the focus on fashion.

Long Layers

I’ve shied away from this silhouette thinking I am too short, but I’m reconsidering. Both Givenchy and Dries van Noten showed this look for FW13.

A Spectacular Film

This is not your typical teen, coming-of-age film. After reading a great review, I grabbed my older daughter to go see it with me. I’m glad I did, it’s very good.

Before I Forget

The fashion flock is in London and off to Milan tonight, but I didn’t want to overlook the Altuzarra show. It was absolutely gorgeous and filled with wearable clothes. A true spring/summer collection– I love the layers, men’s shirts, and lean, mid-calf length skirts that moved so beautifully when the models walked.

An easy look

Dree Hemingway at an H&M and Vogue Studios event at Omar’s, New York City– an easy dress with boots and a clutch, you can’t go wrong.

At A.P.C.

I spied these at A.P.C. in Soho yesterday. Many of the girls in the shop were wearing them and they looked very cute.

A reader commented that navy is big in London right now too and this show-goer proves her right.

Walk the talk

My favorite navy Givenchy sandals that I wear with jeans. I think I like them now more than when I bought them almost two years ago.

Singing the blues

Isabel Marant, Givenchy, Balenciaga in blue

I may love white after Labor Day, and I will always be a devotee of grey, but navy, usually a spring/summer neutral, looks fresh right now.  Any medium to midnight shade of blue will do.

Shearling, bomber, Antigona duffel, skirt, booties, sweater, Pandora bag, sneakers.

The ankle strap lives on

My number one carryover item from FW12 is my pair of tan block-heeled pumps with an ankle strap. I have them in patent, also a pair in suede, and still wear them with everything.
