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.

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…

Belts

Winter Tweak #1

The sales are in their final days and it’s too early to wear any pieces from Resort– yet, I’m craving a little something to perk up my wardrobe. This will be the first of a few posts (you are forewarned) about my search for an item that will refresh my run-around uniform.

These Monse belts would be chic with an oversized coat, and both the mushroom and army green would work with just about any other color.

It Item

Code Red

Dresses are hot right now and the ones in red look fresh.

When I saw my friend Kate Betts wearing a fab red dress on CNN yesterday, I texted her and asked for a pic for this post–thanks for the selfie KB!

PF17

Sonia Rykiel

These two looks from the Sonia Rykiel PF17 collection are going straight up on my inspiration board. I’m feeling the cape again, and the blue coat is beyond fabulous–a true forever item.
