On My Mind

Making Lists

Along with Barneys’ imminent liquidation are the upcoming sales. I usually look for fun, fashion-forward items on sale, but this season I’m widening my search to include a few wardrobe staples that have eluded me. November = Resort deliveries and thinking about Spring, so I’ve got three lists going at once.


what's new


Viviane wool turtleneck sweater


Floral stretch-lace tights


Slanted-cuff leather knee-high boots


Wool-twill coat


Textured-knit tights


Oversized hooded cable-knit wool and mohair-blend cardigan


Cavalier wool blazer


Aiden sleeveless cashmere top


Hawes T-bar cutout leather pumps


Oversized cashmere knit top


Wool-blend turtleneck vest


Piped knee-high leather boots

  • Hi Preston,
    Please let us know what you find and I would love to know if you fine gray jeans. Thank you.

  • Grey jeans are so elusive. I have a Frame pair that I wear way too often… Desperately need an alternate pair.

  • Ooh I love posts like this. Preston please let us know when you find the “perfect” everything.

  • The Nili Lotan slip dress you recently posted on is 40% off at Net a Porter’s EIP sale. Also, I purchased gray Goldsign straight leg jeans and love them!

  • Love a list. Always impressed by your planned approach to wardrobe acquisitions. Good luck with the hunt. And yes, even your handwriting is chic!

  • Nice idea of fisherman sweater with the dress. I am bored with basic jeans. Love my L’agence leather jeans though. I need some comfortable casual( not jeans) bottoms! Any ideas? Classic cords? Thanks, love your style so much Preston!

  • I’m grateful for having nice readers!! Please, no one do a handwriting analysis on my lists, I’m sure it will say I’m off my nut… xPreston

    PrestonNovember 4th, 2019  6:14 PM

  • Yes! Definitely would love to know what gray jeans you find.

    AmyNovember 5th, 2019  9:26 AM

  • Lots of comments regarding the Net-A-Porter EIP sale…how do you become an EIP? Is it based on spend?

    VictoriaNovember 6th, 2019  5:46 AM

  • I am an EIP from loyalty. My friend founded NAP and I love their shipping and customer service.

    PrestonNovember 6th, 2019  6:41 AM

  • I really enjoyed reading “The Conscious Closet”, which was mentioned in an earlier post. I’ve also seen a couple of articles on fashion as an investment, so now I’m looking at things differently as I make my lists.

  • I went to the Barney’s sale this week. Not much discount yet and so sad. The whole place felt somber and slightly abandoned. What a loss.
