My friend swears by Lashfood products, especially the mascara. I’m going to test drive the ‘Lash Transformation System’ and will let you know.

To Do

Rainy Weekend Ahead

Sadly, the Mother’s Day weekend forecast is cool and rainy. The good news is that Eleanor Coppola’s “Paris Can Wait”, starring the fab Diane Lane, just opened, and my one-time Vogue colleague Plum Sykes’ new book “Party Girls Die In Pearls” is out.

On The Hunt For

Speaking of Tunics

I’d happily wear this Chanel dress from the 2018 Cruise collection over jeans, and the Louis Vuitton PF18 tunic looks like a keeper.

Tunic Time

I am a tunic fanatic and often shorten dresses and wear them over pants. When I spied this Isabel Marant linen top, I knew it warranted a collage.

After I put up the post Shopping My Closet, I decided it’s time for new sunglasses, and this Loewe raffia bag has been at the top of my spring wish list for a few months now.

Spears of Love

Asparagus is one of my all-time favorite veggies—peeled and grilled, please.  I stumbled across this fantastic article in The New York Times that has lots of great recipes and a guide to the proper way to choose, store, and prep— ’tis the season of the green stalk.

Bastide

Frederic Fekkai and his wife Shirin von Wulffen not only purchased and restored a beautiful home in Aix-en-Provence, the French beauty guru’s hometown, the couple also bought and relaunched the Provencal beauty line Cote Bastide. Now simply Bastide, the products, which are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and silicone, are made locally with ingredients sourced solely from the region. At a breakfast yesterday in Tribeca, the intoxicating fragrances, olive-oil soaps, vegetable-wax candles in blown-glass jars, creams, and crystals were on display—the packaging is beautiful, too.

My Music

Sounds of Spring

It’s been some time since I’ve put up a music post—here’s what I’m listening to right now. Glass Animals’ sophomore album, How to be a Human Being, is fantastic—my daughter saw them at Coachella and said they were amazing.  And I turn up Missio’s title song “Bottom of the Deep Blue Sea” every time it comes on.

On My Mind

Shopping My Closet

My winter coats and boots are stored and I’m pulling out warm-weather wear. Clogs are in heavy rotation again, and I love the Gucci slides so much that I bought a brown pair. The Valentino and Balenciaga dresses, now 5 and 3 years-old respectively, are two of my top spring go-tos. And the Céline hobos remain my run-around bags. It feels good that the items I’ve invested in are still beloved and, in some cases, worn daily.

Here Comes The Sun

Even as a child I hated sitting in the sun and now it’s paid off. However, I do like having a little color and it may be time to up my bronzer game. Suggestions welcome.
