On My Radar

Really Random

Louis Vuitton’s new perfume, Pacific Chill, has many of the fragrance notes I love. Lauren Santo Domingo, Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer of Moda Operandi, has been appointed Artistic Director of the Tiffany Home collection. I love her taste and I’m excited to see what she comes up with. These bone china coffee cups are fun. A book about a rare bookseller titled Once Upon a Tome is right up my alley. I had a style reset moment last week when I spied an incredibly chic woman in green Adidas Sambas. I’m desperately trying to move beyond my neutrals-only style sensibility. Friday we are seeing Asteroid City — can’t wait!

  • My son’s girlfriend has a grace Kelly sensibility and style but combines it with orange adidas sambas – such a knock-out.! I’m thinking about the green. Love the blog

  • Sneakers are the perfect wardrobe item to have a little fun with! There are some items I would never buy in green (gloves for instance), but a sporty shoe, especially in in suede, looks like a winner! Last weekend I saw an excellent doc film that KIC-ers might like, Close to Vermeer. I give it five stars.

  • Great suggestions! I’ve been on a major green “KIC” lately. It all started a couple years ago with the perfect green Celine Ava bag, I own green suede Adidas Hamburgs that I looked the world over and love (they don’t have the beige suede toe and have a black sole) and wear frequently. My new found love of green even transferred over to my car order – non metallic dark green SUV that Kathy fondly coined “Army Chic”. Green is truly is a lovely neutral.

  • My Mini Cooper is dark green and I love it.

  • Green is a terrific option – a little off the beaten path, but the perfect surprise. My birkin, long past its prime, is a beautiful shade of green and it’s been a terrific neutral, at least for my limited, grey, navy, black and a bit more grey, color schemes. Thank so very much for the book tip – always looking for a good piece of fiction. Take care all – enjoy the weekend!

  • An old ‘Army green’ Land Rover is my dream car! We have a vintage British Green Austin Healey, and it’s just perfection. Green is beautiful in the kitchen, too! Just not on the hands . . . 🙂

  • As for the Sambas, anyone know if they need arch support inserts? They look fun, and very flat.

  • i LOVE green…emeralds top the list. However, I’m emeraldless so I’ve settled for always having a green jeep (with red stripe) for the past 30 years. MaryB: hope you will share brand of your SUV…needing new green options. Green cars are hard to find. Thx. Lynn

  • I hadn’t heard the news about LSD, so exciting! Dark green is super chic, I’m also loving navy for summer. Let us know how the movie is! Marcheline Isabelle

  • green is having a moment. I have been seeing many young woman with green Goyard totes in the last few weeks.

  • Ran into a friend on Fifth Ave earlier today who was carrying an ENORMOUS Goyard shopping bag, which is bright green.

    PrestonJune 15th, 2023  3:15 PM

  • My mini Cooper is also green, such a great color and makes me so happy whenever I’m behind the wheel!
    Tracey – my dream birkin was going to be green, vert laurier, but realized I couldn’t be picky or I’d never get one. Must be gorgeous!

  • I have a vintage Vert Anise Picotin that I love to carry in the summer. It goes best with neutrals – particularly white or blue. In fact, I LOVE blue with green -esp in the home. I don’t have any green sneakers but that sounds like a very good idea!

    MariaJune 15th, 2023  7:19 PM

  • I came back to this post to read the commentary and saw the statement about your friend on Fifth. She was featured on @newyorkersinthecity today; I grabbed a screenshot here. Please share with us what she got! Marcheline Isabelle

  • My 24 year old daughter bought the green Sambas last week. They are very popular in London.

    MMSJune 16th, 2023  4:26 AM

  • Yes, Marchelline, that’s my friend! I sent her the pic, she’ll be horrified.

    PrestonJune 16th, 2023  8:08 AM

  • Too funny. I would also be horrified, but she is incredibly chic.

    MarchelineJune 16th, 2023  10:17 AM

  • Emeralds would be my pick but instead we have Paula’s dream, old, army green (it is ex army), green land-rover defender. The late queen would be proud.

  • As always I love your posts.
    I have used the Tiffany cups as pencil holders – they have been a lot of fun. And green is a fabulous neutral in my book.

    BonnyJune 16th, 2023  6:07 PM

  • Well I certainly hear you on the overdosed on neutrals… I’m bursting at the seams with tasteful understated items. I need some disruption! but my colour of choice is yellow. Lemon chartreuse, acid… very intentionally off.

    SundaeJune 23rd, 2023  3:47 PM

  • Fabulous!
