‘Natural Selection’

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

On My Mind

Well-Suited

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.

‘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).

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.
