I had lunch with the chic de la chic Amanda Ross earlier this month and she wore one of her ARossGirl❤️Soler dresses — needless to say, she looked beautiful. Eventhough Amanda has launched a line of separates, which I’m excited to see, I’m going to order the dress above. I know that my dear friend would love to get me into pink or lavender, but I will wear it in black often and forever.

The New York Times
When I read in The New York Times that Mona Kowalska, the designer of A Détacher, is shuttering her label this summer, I fell into a rabbit hole of memories of my early years in NYC. The 90s were a very cool time for fashion and I remember when the A Détacher shop opened downtown. Chic and wearable, I had many pieces (a few still hanging in my closet). Closing in July, I’m going to pop in and see what’s left.

After weeks of rain the humidity is on deck. I’m inspired by the ponytails at the Lacoste show — an easy way to manage the effects of the weather.

While perusing “Just In” on Matches Fashion I spied these Marni Trunk bags for $700. less than I paid (MF already caught their mistake, but the bags are still a little less). I love mine (top and bottom), they are a nice alternative to the classic CC. The tan with white piping must be a reissue from a number of years ago, I need to pull it out.

On My Mind
This is my summer uniform inspiration — a dress + slides = easy. TBC.

On My Mind
I am spending the day with my mother. The tables have turned and I am now, in the traditional sense, more of a mother to her than she to me. It makes me realize that you don’t actually have to have children to be a “mother”. Motherhood is a way of being that includes kindness, nurturing, selflessness, etc. Besides my girls, I “mother” my husband, sisters, niece, friends, dachshund — anyone I care about is on this list. So, to everyone, a very happy Mother’s Day.

On My Mind
When Virginie Viard took her bow in a patch pocketed jacket from her debut collection for Chanel, I let out a sigh — this is precisely how I’d like to wear the new pieces. Seeing a designer in her own clothes gives me a sense of how to wear them in the real world — think Phoebe Philo with a sweater wrapped around her waist or the flawless Miuccia Prada in the final moment of each of her shows. Forget the campaigns, this is how I want to see them styled.
When in France the green cross pharmacy sign is a beacon to the land of plenty-of-great-beauty-products. Now you can get them all in one place online at French Pharmacy. C’est bien.
Virginie Viard’s first show for Chanel was a winner. The 2019 Cruise collection is packed with wearable and timeless items and I appreciate Ms. Viard’s light hand when it comes to all the CC trappings — a perfect blending of the history of the house with a modern sensibility. Ignore the chatter, these are clothes we’ll want to live in.
This stunning story is from WSJ. Magazine‘s May issue — on newsstands tomorrow (online now). The clothes and models (Amber, Alek, Karen, and Gemma) are perfection.
