On My Inspiration Board

Apiece Apart, Jessica de Ruiter & Chanel flats

Jessica de Ruiter’s classic gold bangles, Apiece Apart’s pre-fall non-Breton striped top, and I didn’t buy into the ballet trend last year, however, these Chanel flats on Barbara Martelo could end up on my wish list.

Interview

‘Street Wise’

The Hermès dress above and Loewe below are the kind of pieces I’ve been eyeing—they are stylish but wouldn’t look dated a few years out. Like the Atlantique Ascoli dresses and tops I’ve amassed, these two items would go the distance.

All Tied Up

Gianvito Rossi Satin Sandals & Alexandre Birman Pumps

La Double J. founder J.J. Martin sent me a floor-length dress that I will shorten to mid-calf. The fab printed sheath will be perfect for a bunch of events I have this spring—I just need a sassy shoe to take it into evening.

Vogue Paris

‘India Song’

This beautiful story, shot in Jaipur by Mario Testino, is from the May issue of Vogue Paris. Anastasia Barbieri’s styling makes me yearn for a bit more glamour in my everyday life—it may be time to step up my run-around game.

Blue Collar

Whether stripedsolid, or gingham, a blue shirt is not only the perfect transition piece, it’s a year-round staple.

@valerieleberichel

Valerie Leberichel, Miu Miu’s communications & external relations director, has personal style in spades—the Aurélie Bidermann ring is beyond.

Another good ring from Aurélie Bidermann (thx, KL!)

Jeweler Cora Sheibani

London-based jewelry designer Cora Sheibani was not on my radar until I saw this profile in the current issue of Elle Decor. I love her rings, just one would make a fun statement.

Layering Lesson

My dear friend and ex-office mate Amanda Ross Bacon is a layering pro—the La Double J dress over jeans is so good.

Bottega Veneta

The Lauren Clutch

Lauren Hutton walked in the sensational Bottega Veneta SS17 show as part of the house’s 50th anniversary celebration. Her namesake clutch, a rerelease of the one she carried in the 1980 film “American Gigolo”, is available in brick red and the trench is in, too.

Last week I previewed the Bottega Veneta FW17 collection and was happy to see that the Lauren clutch will be produced in a range of colors for fall upper left.

This BV pouch is also good.

British Vogue

‘Channel Surf’

Amber Valletta looks gorgeous on British Vogue‘s May cover and the accompanying story makes me yearn for summer. One of my all-time favorite models, I’m happy to see Amber in a number of fantastic editorials recently.
