Jacket Crush

This navy, wool-felt, duffel-esque Prada jacket is so adorable, I put together a look just so I could post on it—shameless, I’m aware. And did I mention that the hood is detachable? I’m smitten.

Prada Jacket, Brock Collection jeans, Mizuki pearl and diamond earrings, Balenciaga ankle boots.

The Perry Pump

I posted on these Chloé Perry pumps just moments after I saw them on the runway last March. The ankle strap and brogue detail are like a siren song to me. Not sure if I’ll go with a t-strap, or which color, but I do know that a pair is on my fall wish list.

Beige t-strap and here, brown t-strapgrey t-strap, burgundy ankle strap.

Lovely Valentino

These Valentino Haute Couture gowns are simply breathtaking— bravo Pierpaolo Piccioli.

Harper's Bazaar Australia

Cut Short

With all the mid-calf and ankle-grazing silhouettes these days, the mini looks fresh to my eye. A few inches above the knee is good. Love these Pamela Hanson pictures in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia.

Mary Watson’s Favorite White Jeans

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Fourth up Midwest-based mom of three boys, Mary Watson:

“These RL white jeans are my favorites for this holiday. I prefer boy/straight cut or men’s—the same with my raw APC’s, they suit me. I am in love with white selvedge—RL, The Row, and Levi’s 501 made in USA are the best!

I collect flags and just got a Kate Schelter watercolor of one this week”. Mary

Happy 4th of July!

An Easy Dress

I was looking at my Instagram feed and realized that I’ve been wearing black cotton dresses to a bunch of events recently—they are just so easy. The one above is great, but may be a tad too short.  Only one way to find out.

The Return of Non-Stretch Jeans

The return of non-stretch jeans is definitely in the air. Navaz Batliwalla shared her love of non-stretch Levi’s in my “White Jeans” series and the comments on her post talk to this trend as well. The Wall Street Journal, too, has an article on this very topic, today.

On My Mind

Runway vs. Reality

When I spied this J.W. Anderson jacket on the SS17 runway, I posted and put it on my wish list. Fast forward to the spring sales and my surprise to find that it was still available, and in my size no less.

It’s the perfect fashion piece to give my wardrobe a bit of zip, or so I thought. That is until my daughter pointed out that I resemble an extra in a Shakespearean production. Through that lens the jacket feels “not me.” When does fashion cross the line from fun to silly?

Kendall Conrad’s Favorite White Jeans

Kendall Conrad White Jeans

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Third up, accessories designer Kendall Conrad:

“White jeans are a go to staple all year round for me as I live in California.

I wear them either high/low with my SANDALS or very high stilettos. A pullover sweater or a t-shirt and blazer always work well. Or a button down men’s shirt when it’s hot out with one of my BELTS.

I am very particular about them. I like flared, boyfriend, bootcut, and skinny but never too tight. I don’t like high rise or slashes or appliqués for me-I like to keep it simple.” Kendall

Three of KC’s favorites: Citizens of Humanity bootcut, FRAME Le Garcon, Current/Elliott skinny.
