Pippa Small

Pendant Envy

My friend, L.A.-based artist Kathy Leeds, has an enviable collection of Pippa Small pendants — Pippa actually snapped this pic of them on Kathy last week. I love the varied lengths, too.

Kathy asked me recently if I’d do a post on SoCal dressing. As a New Yorker who has never lived on the West Coast, I demurred—it wouldn’t be authentic. So, I turned the tables and asked Kathy to do a guest post for kic, instead. Stay tuned!

Fall Tweak

This Chloé pump (and here) is an easy way to add a little velvet—the It fabric of the season—to your fall wardrobe. The color is spot-on, too.

Resort 2017

Chloé

The Chloé SS17 show is in less than two days and, yet, the label waited to release the Resort 2017 images until today. Famous front row attendees on Thursday will most likely be wearing pieces from this Pre-Spring collection, which will be in stores in just under a month.

I especially love the striped pants below.

Desert Boots & Wallabees

My daughter cleaned her closet this summer and tossed out a pair of desert boots. I grabbed them and have been wearing them in lieu of sneakers while running around. Made me think of this Vogue story from 2007 by Mario Testino—maybe it’s time to bring back the Desert Boot and Wallabees (and here)…

SS17 Collection

Bottega Veneta

There’s a lot to love and wear in Tomas Maier’s SS17 collection for Bottega Veneta. Lauren Hutton walked in the fantastic show, helping to celebrate the house’s 50th anniversary. Doesn’t get any better than this in my book.

‘Not So Neutral…’

It’s not just the many shades of beige that caught my eye—the lacing, pleating, ribbing, edging, etc.—all details that elevate an item’s appeal.

SS17 Collection

Protagonist

The Protagonist SS17 collection looks amazing—the ‘sunkist orange” is especially fab. I need to revisit The Apartment by The Line.

Feeling Belgian

Since loafer-mania took over the fashion world, I’ve been wearing my Belgians more than ever. A well-loved navy suede pair with jeans is my current school run uniform, and my bubble gum-colored pair, worn with jeans, too, are a nice nod to the pink trend.
