La Garconne x Save Khaki

I am constantly stealing Save Khaki tees from my husband, so you can only imagine how happy I am that they’ve finally done a women’s line in collaboration with La Garconne–talk about a win-win! Plus, khakis are a major trend for spring and the ones in the top row are really good.

The Financial Times

Marie-Amélie Sauvé’s Mastermind Magazine

I’ve been following the news about the upcoming launch of Marie-Amélie Sauvé’s Mastermind Magazine on Instagram and am happy that the Financial Times (well worth the subscription) sat down with the brand consultant and fashion director of T Magazine to get the scoop. Long a kic favorite for her personal style, I’m looking forward to seeing what Ms. Sauvé does with her own publication.

Jewelry

The Bold Lobe

If you’re going to buy one thing for spring, you may want to consider a pair of statement earrings, and you can even mismatch your danglers. This is the jewelry trend right now and it’s only going to get bigger (no pun intended) as Spring merchandise hits the stores.

Wardrobe Staple

A Classic White Shirt

Peasant blouses are great, but I’ve been reaching for my classic white button-downs more often recently. They look sharp under a sweater or on their own with the cuffs rolled up.

I originally pulled this Peter Lindbergh image, which I cast for Vogue ages ago, because I’ve been talking to a lot of agents about the current models. There are many terrific models today and I hope we’ll see a shift to career longevity, which made me think of this group and that at least four of these women are still working.

Resort 2017

The Row x Missy Rayder x Barneys

When I was searching for The Row’s Resort 2017 lookbook images, up popped this story on Barneys’ The Window. Model Missy Rayder is a great girl and Barneys stopped by the lookbook shoot to chat about her new home decor venture. And let’s talk about the beautiful clothes and accessories–I love that the Olsens have upped the tailoring a bit.

On the hunt for a reasonably priced pair

Jeans Wardrobe

For many women, jeans are not just a wardrobe staple, they are are wardrobe subset. Owning a number of styles that are appropriate for a wide range of occasions is not uncommon. This is especially true now that we wear jeans beyond just running-around.

At coffee last week, a work day, my friend who is an editor-in-chief of a magazine was in jeans. We both were. To meetings I often wear straight-legged dark denim with a cashmere sweater and Gucci slides or black Jimmy Choo booties – wide-leg jeans with an interesting blouse to dinners – a lighter shade denim with an oversized sweater while running around – and white all year long. The hard and fast rules re. jeans have been blurred and they are now appropriate attire in more situations than ever before. This is great for modern women and it’s why many pairs cost up to $200 and beyond.

But, what about jeans for the weekend and just running around, do they have to be as expensive? I don’t think so. Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt reportedly favors Topshop jeans, and my daughter looks amazing in Levi’s and H&M. Friends swear by J.Crew denim and Madewell and I saw loads of cute pairs on the Boden site. Hey, if they fit well, and a good tailor can make that happen, then there are a world of options out there at a fraction of the price.

Video Interview On Matchesfashion.com

Joseph Designer Louise Trotter

Over coffee this morning with a friend, I raved about a pair of Joseph trousers and she agreed that the line has been looking really great. In this Matches Fashion video interview, the creative director of Joseph, Louise Trotter, shares her thoughts on why the brand’s clothes are so appealing–especially to women with busy lives.

Hermès Bracelets

Winter Tweak #3

I’ve been hunting for a few specific Hermès leather bracelets to stack with my watch and have found a number of them on The Real Real and Vestiaire Collective. I even got an Apple Hermès Watch band–woo hoo!

News Alert

Calvin Klein By Appointment

Calvin Klein quietly launched it’s new made-to-measure line, the first collection since Raf Simons became chief creative officer of the house last August. Of the 14 looks, all steeped in iconic American references, this is my favorite.

White Blouse

Winter Tweak #2

A new white blouse, especially a feminine, high-necked version like this one by Tibi, is a definite wear now/wear later piece. It would be great with jeans or shorts.

I threw in the sandals because they are crazy good, although, they would be cute with a pair of nubby socks, now…
