February Vogue

‘The Runaways’

I picked up a February Vogue yesterday and pulled out this story by Peter Lindbergh and Grace Coddington. The clothes + model Vittoria Ceretti + actor Lucas Hedges = a dynamite editorial.

February 2017 Issue

Vogue Paris

This looks like it will be a very good issue–tbc.


Specific Silver Pieces

Last summer we cleaned out my family home on Martha’s Vineyard and I ended up with two more sets of silver and a number of odds-and-ends pieces. “Sweet specificity” sums up these pieces perfectly- berry spoons, sugar cube tongs, cake breakers, sundry forks, and items that I cannot even guess at their intended use. When I came across this article in Veranda I had an ‘aha’ moment-  Replacements is my source for filling in my discontinued everyday china pattern (Wedgwood Edme), why not use them to identify my silver pieces? Ta da!

Fave Re-Run From October 2013

The Apartment by The Line

The Line

I am reposting this story from October 2013 because I’ve been buying quite a bit from The Line and they’ve upped their game a lot since I first met with them. Their Instagram feed is really good, too.

After I posted last week on The Line, the newly launched online luxury shop founded by Vanessa Traina Snow, I received an invitation to stop by and meet the team. I immediately accepted because I would love to carry Protagonist, a line of refined minimalist clothing, in the kic shop.

So yesterday morning I dropped by The Apartment, the offline home of The Line. This is where you can see the products that are sold on the site displayed in beautifully propped rooms. Amazing Danish modernist furniture in the living room, linens in the bedroom, the founders’ favorite books on the shelves, beauty products in the bath, and a walk-in closet full of the most fabulous clothes, shoes, and bags.

The Apartment is a clever concept and the perfect setting to see the great products offered on The Line’s site. Also, the team behind the project is an impressive and talented group who really get what modern women want to wear, and just as importantly, how we want to shop.

It items


We had a weird blip in the weather and it was 65° this afternoon. I pulled out my Gucci slides and did errands in a tee and cardigan– bliss!

Tee, jeans, slides cognac and here,  black and here.

It Item

Real Run-Around

A cardigan is my current go-to item, it’s the ultimate layering piece. I keep a basketful by my desk, they’re perfect for working at home or tucked under a parka– a real workhorse in my wardrobe this winter. My favorites are fisherman knit hand-me-downs from my mother, but this cardigan from H&M looks cozy, too.

On My Mind

Cargo Pants Comeback

After reviewing the Marni SS17 collection images, I predict a major cargo pants comeback. Sadly, my three pairs by Current/Elliott are no longer available–hopefully they’ll be reissued.


Blue Notes

A complete and utter Smythson nut, I have engraved note cards in Nile and writing paper in Bond Street Blue. I order twice as many cards as envelopes and use the extras for quick notes and to tuck in with gifts.

Stamps are a major part of a letter’s appeal and I’m excited for the ones honoring Oscar de la Renta out later this year.
