Walk the Talk

I’ve mentioned a number of times that I cut down a pair of Manolo Blahnik Pascalare boots, but realized that I’ve never posted on them. Funny how a small tweak took them from the back of my closet to being my favorites. They look great scrunched down, too. à la the Totême Fall 2018 show.

SS18 Campaign

Vanessa Seward

The Vanessa Seward SS18 campaign images are dropping and they have a decidedly ’70s vibe. The red pants and wedge sandals are really good. And jumpsuits and slouchy boots still look chic here.

Fall 2018

Filippa K

I love that the designer Filippa Knutsson is back at her label and opened the Fall 2018 show with Georgina Grenville walking to Portishead—both ’90s faves of yours truly. Vogue is correct—”Knutsson’s personal investment in the line keeps its minimalism from becoming flat, boring, or ascetic.” A really solid show with lots of must-have items.

The “BB” Pump

The Manolo Blahnik Pascalare boots and “BB” pumps look crazy chic in the Fall 2018 Totême show. Happily, classics always circle back around.

Fall 2018


I’m a huge fan of Elin Kling’s personal style and love that it’s the inspiration for her line Totême. The Manolo Blahnik Pascalare boots and BB pumps are especially good in the Fall 2018 collection, which was shown in Stockholm yesterday.

On My Mind

Before Phoebe Goes

When Phoebe Philo announced that she was leaving Chloé in 2006, I ran out and bought her iconic black and tan dress, which I still wear. So, I’m starting to think about the few pieces I would like to collect before she leaves Céline.

When the rumors were confirmed that Ms. Philo is leaving the house, my heart sank. Heidi Slimane is an inspired replacement, yet like everyone, I’m waiting to see where the brilliant British designer goes next—her own label would be ideal. Here’s to hoping.

There are some amazing pizza recipes on @bonapetitmag—this one with bibb lettuce, gorgonzola, prosciutto, and pickled red onions is perfect for gameday. My team is still in—booyah!

Breaking News

Hedi Slimane to Céline

Hedi Slimane was named artistic, creative, and image director of Céline. The designer will start February 1 and expand the brand to include couture, menswear, and fragrance. Thank you, LVMH.

Now, let’s see where the brilliant Phoebe Philo ends up. I hope it’s her own label.

Blazé Milano Exclusive Capsule Collection

I’m sure many of you have already seen this video, below, of System Magazine’s founder Elizabeth von Guttman interviewing the designers of Blazé Milano on their exclusive capsule collection for Matches Fashion.

Popular with show-goers since 2014, I credit my friend Kathy for encouraging me to post on the brand last summer. Kathy was an immediate fan of the oversized blazers in gorgeous menswear fabrics—and she was spot-on. I love that they are inspired by riding jackets, something dear to my heart.

Bringing The Garden Indoors

@markdsikes mentioned that he wants to start collecting botanical prints, which reminded me of this post.

Botanical prints are one way to bring the garden indoors during the winter months. These beauties are from One Kings Lane.
