The Fashion-Forward Item

I try to add a fashion-forward item to my wardrobe each season, this gives my classic outfits a bit of zing and keeps my look current. Sometimes it’s a big ticket item, sometimes it’s not. These are a few things I’ve had my eye on and just one would do the trick.

WSJ. Magazine

‘Lost Horizons’

I love the Giorgio Armani jacket and red Ralph Lauren sweater in this WSJ. Magazine story– perfect transition pieces.

The Perfect Spring Jacket

I am on the road visiting colleges with my daughter. Wish I had this Vince suede jacket, also here and on sale here (thank you, Britta!), would be a nice alternative to my navy blazer, my uniform topper this week.

The Clasp Bag, Cont.

After seeing a number of show-goers carrying the Céline Clasp bag, I decided to pop into the shop and take a look at it. There’s no denying that it is lovely.

Transitioning into Spring

We are heading into blazer weather. Paired with a white shirt, Breton striped top, or light-weight turtleneck, a blazer is a timeless wardrobe staple and the perfect transition piece (think Emmanuelle Alt and Charlotte Casiraghi).  As a horseback riding family, we have no shortage of navy jackets on hand. On cool mornings I top off with a cashmere wrap then stow it away when the temp rises during the day. The top-handle bag updates this classic look.

Blue and White

I think I’ve been bitten by the blue-and-white bug– love these soon-to-be-released plates by Aerin Lauder for Williams Sonoma.

An Easy Dress

This Tibi dress (and here) looks like it could be a forever piece in my wardrobe– it’s good in white, too. I’d close the side slits and shorten to my knee.

Jigsaw: Inspired by New Wave Cinema

Handbag designer Agnes Baddoo told me about this charming film on the Jigsaw site– enjoy!

The adorable actress Leonora is somehow related to Priscilla Woolworth, an early kic profile…

Rainy Run-Around

The good news is that the temps are on the rise, the bad news is that rain is forecast for 5 of the next 10 days– oh well.  There are tons of great trench coats available right now, but when I’m running errands and in and out of the car, I prefer a shorter jacket. Stockholm-based Stutterheim raincoats are just the ticket.
