Just Enough

This picture, from October Vogue UA, is a reminder that sometimes one or two spectacular pieces of jewelry make more of a statement than stacks of bangles and layers of pendants. The matching Tiffany Victoria collection earrings and bracelet are sublime.

  • This is a nice post to start the NewYear on! It speaks to me on a few levels: confirming once again that less really is more; confirms my love blue and black worn together; confirms my passion for simple black dress shoes and a kitten heel; and finally, it’s really always been about a fresh face!

  • Happy New Year, Preston! This is a stunning look, defies age and decade.

    It’s funny- I’ve had a less is more perspective since I was in junior high. I think it was a combination spending time in my mother’s and maternal grandmother’s closets, and both of them sewed a lot of our clothes until I entered the 8th grade. I remember spending time pouring over bolts of fabric with them and then watch them accessorize these beautiful dresses they made with one of two pieces of jewelry and a great heel- always looking at texture for contrast, not pattern.

    And going to an all girls school, we lived in navy, black and forest green tartan, so my closet has always favored a neutral color palette, except for true reds, and a pop of yellow and pink in the summer. Funny how those early experiences shape the way we present ourselves to the world.

  • LOVE this. Can you please tell us who makes the pants?

  • Spot on and refreshing. Kind of a Hayley Mills throwback of the Susan twin in the Parent Trap.

    Happy New Years Preston- and to the KIC community.
    I do not comment too frequently, but peruse habitually. Essential reading, imho.
    The KIC readership/commenters club is a great added bonus.
