It’s no secret that I’m a block-heel fanatic and I still wear my Gucci Marmonts and Valentino Tan-Gos all the time, but for spring, I want a kitten-heel slingback. The 90s cult classic has been a street style-staple for a few seasons and was on the Dior and Vetements (in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik) SS17 runways. A navy pair with cropped jeans would be very chic, indeed.

J.W. Anderson FW17
Even though I’m all over belted coats right now, this J.W. Anderson FW17 trench is pretty fab. I would like to see it unbuttoned, though…
We’ve been craving fish stew so my husband pulled this recipe from Saveur. Perhaps we can cut the cream in half by using coconut milk– the perfect winter meal.
SS17 Issue n° 15
I’m counting the days until I can get my hands on this SS17 issue- on sale February 22. Inez and Vinoodh photographed Sofia Coppola, so you know the pictures will be amazing–the cover is gorgeous.
Vogue photographed interior designer Rose Uniacke in her stunning London town house. Decorated with antiques and furniture from Uniacke’s own line, the house is a study in “restrained elegance.”

I’m inspired by Haute Couture but don’t often cover it because it doesn’t have much relevance to my lifestyle. Yet, when the Chanel team invited me to pop by to view the recent SS17 collection, I jumped at the chance to see the looks up close.
Originally shown in Paris on January 24 at the Chanel headquarters, the 1930s Art Deco-inspired collection is beyond beautiful. The evening wear, especially, with it’s mirrored embroidery, is something to behold. My favorite bit of the presentation highlights the house’s use of 3D printing (top right) to map out the placement of the jewels. One of these incredible dresses will surely be on the red carpet at the Academy Awards.

After I put up the previous post on shorts, some thoughtful comments came in.
I only have the Frame shorts in black, so I cannot address the complaint about the white ones turning pink. But, I do understand the length issue and have searched for a few longer pairs, and will keep searching as we head into spring.
Regarding the “of the moment” comment– many women prefer frayed cutoffs, I like these. However, last year I ran a post on a frayed denim skirt and got some comments that went off track, so I took it down. But really, to each her own.
Ah, the age question, my favorite! I believe that if you love something and it’s not too revealing/tight/short etc., then wear it. I know lots of women over 70 who wear Stan Smith sneakers, skinny jeans, and shorts!
Isabel Marant, Chloé, Toteme below, and Vince.
These are my favorite shorts– denim cutoffs but not frayed, and super comfortable because they have some stretch (I recommend going down a size). When I spotted them last year I snapped them up; black shorts are not always easy to find.

Paris and Berlin-based photographer Sandra Semburg shoots the street style pics for Vogue Paris and they are simply the best. Ms. Semburg always photographs the chicest show-goers and captures the details that I find so inspiring. Maybe it’s a woman thing…
I was heading out to a get a hair cut when I spotted this picture–I canceled the appointment.
