A.P.C.’s Magasin Général

An A.P.C. fan since forever, I remember well all the cool stuff they sold in their shops alongside the clothes. The record section was super fab, too.

Beauty

Bar Soap

I’m a huge bar soap fan—it’s great for traveling and no bottle ends up in a landfill. The secret is to buy good looking dishes. I even use a bar soap facial cleanser so I was thrilled when I spied this Christophe Robin shampoo bar—I can’t wait to try it.

On My Radar

Captivating Khaite

Not even two years old, Khaite has made it’s mark.  The stunning campaigns featuring Kirsty Hume and Sasha Pivovarova certainly have aided in extending the brand’s awareness. Although pricey, the quality (the cashmere is incredible) and simple design elements are what make Khaite such a standout.

Available here.

Candles Are Not Cliché

…or at least not in my book. Now that it’s cooler and and the windows are shut tight, I pull out my favorite candles. A huge fan of rose, I’ve ordered this one by Byredo and will let you know if it makes the cut.

WSJ. Magazine

Innovator: Reese Witherspoon

This week has been a blur and I cannot wait to get into bed with a bunch of new books and magazines. First up will be WSJ. Magazine‘s Innovators Issue, which is on newsstands today. Reese Witherspoon looks fantastic in Cass Bird’s photographs and I’m sure Derek Blasberg’s interview will be a good read.

Resort

Céline

The hoops in the Céline Resort collection are all really good, the sunglasses too.

On the Hunt For

Hoop Dreams

I’ve been on the hunt for a substantial pair of gold hoop earrings. The last pair I tried were way too big. These by Sophie Buhai seem to be the right size and heft. Tbc.

On My Mind

Happy Halloween

I have no Tinker Bells or witches this year—we are actually heading out for a college interview and won’t even be home. For all of you with small children or grandchildren, save me a peanut butter cup!

How To Tie

A Headscarf

A few readers asked how I wear a headscarf and the top left is my preferred style. Love these Hermès how-to cards.

Holiday Magazine

“Girl from North Country”

Stylist Géraldine Saglio used a bright headscarf on Julia Bergshoeff in Inez & Vinoodh’s story for the Danish issue of Holiday Magazine. I have my eye on a Gucci dark floral scarf—would be a nice fall tweak.
