Chic Bits

On My Inspiration Board

I’ve already emailed Chanel a request for an evening cape from the Cruise 2021/22 collection (she thinks I’m nuts, but hey). The chain belt is so good dressed up or down. This Cartier image is from my new favorite Instagram feed @marchelineisabelle, and I’m following her recently launched eponymous blog, Marcheline Isabelle, too. And my friend Gigi sent me the image lower left, it’s her summer evening inspiration — chic.

  • Flattered that you posted that pic I sent. It is what I wore yesterday to a bday lunch in NYC at a friend’s apartment. I added a ribbed tank top under my The Row off-white jacket for a more daytime version of what you see in the photo. I accessorized with a watch, a chain bracelet and a beautiful and sentimental bangle of my mother’s- all in gold. Happy Mother’s Day, dear Preston! See you very soon. X

    Btw the shoes yesterday were 2 tone (beige and blk) Chanel sling backs — cool and comfy

  • Any idea on the source of that fabulous white jacket and belt?
    Gigi, great look! I am definitely copying it.

  • The cape is lovely, good eye in spotting, as it’s a little obscured in the photo. It will be stunning with a variety of ‘under’ garments and perfect for casual to dress needs.

    I love your Inspiration Board posts. Gigi’s white jacket, pictured and casual tweak, listed above, are gorgeous. Thank you for the update.

    Thank you always Preston

  • I was hoping a reader would be able to identify the jacket/image 😉

  • Preston, I am honored, flattered and honestly a little starstruck that you gave me a mention. I’ve followed your blog for years and you were a huge inspiration for me to start my creative outlet. Thank you so much for the shout out, it means the world.
    Gigi, I cannot wait to recreate that chic outfit next time I leave the house. I’ve been on the hunt for the flat Chanel slingbacks in all black but am having trouble finding size 35.
