Spring seems to be taking its sweet time and I’m very ready to store my puffers and wool coats and transition into jacket weather. This quirky story in May Vogue starring actress Leelee Sobieski has the right idea.

I love lists and this one does not disappoint. Photographer and author Claiborne Swanson Frank, whose third book Mother and Child has stormed Instagram, lists her cannot-live-without things for May Elle Decor—doesn’t get much better than this.
During the years I cast the Louis Vuitton show under Marc Jacobs I acquired a number of pieces of monogrammed luggage that I still use all the time. However, I haven’t carried a traditional canvas LV handbag in years—I think that’s about to change. Once again, Vestiaire,The Real Real,Farfetch (has a ton), and Shopbop have many and they look great a bit pre-loved.
I posted on the classic scarf last fall, but, I’ve yet to wear one and I have a number of beautiful scarves that should see the light of day. I’m just not sure how to style it without looking matronly. Both The Real Real and Vestiaire have vintage Hermès scarves.
My dear friend sent me a picture of this fab Joseph skirt—she loves it because it’s so “Out of Africa”. With all the gorgeous neutrals this spring, there’s a good chance many of us will be channeling a bit of Meryl Streep’s wardrobe from the film.
California-based accessories designer Kendall Conrad talks about her love of jewelry in a new Tiffany & Co. tv campaign watch here. When I was at Vogue I cast Kendall in a shoot with Helmut Newton—she’s even more beautiful today. Kendall was also a kic profile and participated in the White Jeans series.
After 20 years casting models for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and fashion shows, I wanted to spend more time with my daughters. KiC is my way to share my thoughts on fashion and style. I believe style should permeate every aspect of our lives — from home, to family, to where we go, and naturally, what we wear — especially when we're just running around. — Preston Davis
