Linda Wright Inspired

I follow Paris-based Linda Wright on Instagram and am besotted with her personal style. Born in Texas, the Ralph Lauren alum has lived in Paris for 38 years and has the shop Crimson, which sells the most beautiful cashmere ponchos.

But it’s her uniform of jeans (Dior above), cashmere sweaters, little blazers, and loafers or sneakers that keeps me checking her feed daily.

Self Service Issue #47

Obsessions

It’s nice to see Doutzen Kroes looking more down to earth in this story from the FW17 issue of Self Service. Red, houndstooth check and Glen plaid, trenches, menswear, and western boots—the ‘hits’ of fall fashion are all here.

Breaking News in The Business of Fashion

Is Phoebe Philo Leaving Céline?

According to The Business of Fashion, the rumors are true and Phoebe Philo is set to exit Céline at the end of the year. LVMH is reportedly already searching for her replacement. Ms. Philo has been with the house since 2008, a long tenure by today’s standards. I still have pieces that I snapped up when she left Chloe. Stay tuned.

Corduroy’s Comeback

The staple of my youth, corduroy, has come storming back. Wide wale is everywhere but it’s evident from this WSJ article, “Why Women Hate the fabric of the Moment”, that it’s not for everyone. I’m on the fence, frankly. Pinwale corduroy pants are one of my wardrobe staples, but I’ve yet to find a flattering pair in wide wale. However, I’m game to try and here are a few pairs that I have my eye on and will test drive: grey Marc Jacobs, navy Acne Studios, black Isabel Marant, pink Céline. These Vince corduroy cargo pants are very cute, although not wide wale.

P.S. Lavender was on many of the SS18 runways…

Heidi Carey Jewelry

The Perfect Choker

A few weeks ago I was introduced to California-based jewelry designer Heidi Carey and her collection of beautiful necklaces. The “bold yet classic” pieces are all made from semi-precious gemstones, which keeps them nicely priced. Over coffee I asked Heidi if she would make me a custom piece, a grey baroque pearl choker to wear with sweaters and tees—and, voilà—so simple and chic.

P.S. I spied baroque pearl chokers on the Sonia Rykiel SS18 runway…

Bullitt Inspired

I ran this post a few years ago, but it still inspires me:

Hair loosely tied back with a black ribbon, the camel coat, Chanel bag and jeans– Jacqueline Bisset’s style in Bullitt is on my inspiration board right now.

Le Monde D'Hermès

“Industrial Revolution”

The autumn-winter 2017 issue of LE MONDE D’HERMÈS just hit my mailbox and it’s packed with gorgeous images. I particularly like this story by photographer Benedict Redgrove (the bag is pretty spectacular, too).

On The Hunt For

Three Things

I’m on the hunt for three items: A dark denim jacket, a pair of statement earrings (I had my eye on a Céline pair but they turned out to be too heavy) and spied these on a very chic woman at a Cherry Bombe Cookbook event, and I loved this Fendi bag when it came down the runway and want to see it.

A Bodysuit?

J. Crew bodysuit

My friend is trying to convince me to buy a J. Crew bodysuit and I admit that they look great with pants and skirts—no more tucking and retucking. It’s the snaps that give me pause… Thoughts?

The Simple Wardrobe

I ran a longer version of this post 7 years ago and it’s just as relevant today. I was addressing the fact that many women wear 20% of their clothes 80% of the time:

The above story from the November 2007 issue of Vogue was written by Mark Holgate who must have been prescient since it ran moments before the downturn. The ironic timing aside, I love that the stylist Aleksandra Woronieka above wears just a few pieces- but the few pieces are great and timeless. Here we are 10 years later and I would love to own everything on her rack; the perfect simple wardrobe!
