Simply Sofia

These stunning pictures of Sofia Coppola are by Inez & Vinoodh for September Vogue Paris. The Cartier Panthère (Ms. Coppola directed a short film to mark the relaunch of the classic watch) looks especially good. She is sublimely chic.

On The Hunt For

Levi's 501 jeans

There are lots of jeans out there, but I’m determined to find the perfect pair of Levi’s—I’ll keep you posted.

The Boyfriend Sweater

Boyfriend sweaters

Alyson Walsh wore her boyfriend’s sweater in her “White Jeans Series” post pic. It looks amazing paired with frayed jeans and Gucci loafers—the perfect transition-into-fall outfit. I love the slouchy shape of these Acne Studios sweaters and they come in a number of lovely colors—no need to borrow from your man.

Light-grey, navylight-beige, light-blue, dusty-pink, and yellow. The corduroy trousers are Acne Studios, too.

Alyson Walsh’s Favorite White Jeans

Alyson Walsh White Jeans post

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Eighth up, editor of the fab site That’s Not My Age and author of the soon-to-be released Know Your Style, Alyson Walsh:

“Engaging in a little DIY action over a long Bank Holiday weekend, I took a pair of scissors and lopped a couple of inches off a pair of old Gap flared jeans (the Long and Lean style). To be perfectly honest, I resisted the kick flare/boot crop/whatever trend for quite sometime; when you’re tall, it just looks like your trousers don’t fit. Which is all a bit too ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin,’ for my liking. Anyhow. I finally succumbed to ankle-flapping fashion last year and have been wearing these Gap jeans ever since – my Acne ‘Hep’ white jeans haven’t had a look in.  This cropped style looks good in summer with flat sandals and a shirt, swap for Gucci loafers and a sweater now that it’s cooler. This old APC knit belongs to my partner Paul (Mr TNMA)-  guess that makes it a proper boyfriend sweater.

P.S. after every few washes I give the frayed hems a trim, otherwise the DIY kick flare jeans get themselves into a bit of a tangle. ” Alyson

Penchant for Pendants, cont.

Pendants

It’s all in the mix and layering of lengths when it comes to pendants. Coins look particularly chic right now and I love wishbones, too.

Agnes Baddoo in Dôen

Earlier this week I went to see Agnes Baddoo and her beautiful bags. Always perfectly turned out, Agnes looked effortlessly chic in a long Dôen dress. The Dôen Journal is worth perusing—I love the mix of women profiled.

Full Gallop

I haven’t owned cowboy boots since high school. Back then, I had short pair that I “borrowed” from my mother (she’d worn them summers on her family’s ranch in Wyoming) and I had a fabulous red pair from Billy Martin’s on Madison—the store for western gear way back when. The vintage boots in this August Vogue Paris story are what I’d want if I were to embrace the return of the cowboy boot.

Boot Camp

Boot camp

I have never seen so many different boot styles be “in” at the same time. Calvin Klein has the coolest cowboy boots (thank you Raf), Balenciaga makes a mean sock boot (either ankle or thigh high and here), Prada is still going strong with chic hiking boots, and Saint Laurent has not only the perfect leather over-the-knee boots, the SL slouchy, crystal-embellished pair are beyond.
