When I spied the Celine Lyra boots on the runway last December they went straight to the top of my FW23 wishlist. At first I was wowed by the magnificent jackets in the collection, but after another look at the show images I noted the boots. For years I’ve been searching for a chic walkable boot without a lug sole — et voila! They are very comfortable and true to size. Recently, I’ve been going down a half or even a full size in Dior, Chanel, and Miu Miu. The Miu Miu beige slingbacks did not suit me, btw.
The Mashburns redecorated their NYC shop on Madison at 74th and it looks fantastic — very Ann and Sid. I popped in yesterday to try the Parker jacket. The cut is impeccable with trim shoulders and the wool pique has a bit of give, which accommodates my chest; I won’t have to go up a size then have it altered. I’m deciding if I will wear a sweater underneath — that will determine which size I buy.
And, I picked up this large linen-blend scarf at Zara — it will be great come fall.
