On My Mind
One of the best decisions I made last year was to cut out dairy (only a bite of cheese on occasion). I lost 10 pounds within a few weeks and feel better. There is an article in Vogue Germany that looks interesting (I’m going to find an English version) and the accompanying photo by Grant Cornett above is fantastic. It took a bit, but I now love almond milk in my coffee and on granola.

The summer sales are in full swing and I’ve cherry picked a few items. Now, I’m thinking about Pre-Fall, which will be available in June—it’s the best season for staples and forever pieces. These looks from Toteme are not only timeless and a good price point, they are exactly what I need.
The weather is cool and overcast today so we are cleaning out closets. It reminded me of the amazing advice in the comments on this post from May 2015. Wishing everyone a happy Memorial Day!
I love the fickleness of fashion—in, out, in, out, in, out. Just last year, I was ‘over’ the Birkin but, now, it looks kind of good again.
It all started when I found a moth in my closet (any advice on this would be much appreciated) and decided to take everything out. In the process, I’ve unearthed items that I don’t currently wear but, hold on to. My Birkin falls firmly into that category. In a moment of synchronicity, I saw these pictures on Self Service the same day that I started my closet clean out. Maybe it’s a sign.
For some reason, Memorial Day weekend feels early this year. It’s the unofficial opening act of summer, yet it’s rarely summer-like weather in late May. And this weekend looks like a mixed bag of sun and rain. So, I’m going to try to do a picnic later this afternoon, then a movie on Sunday.
This cheeseboard, from the blog Half Baked Harvest, is still my inspiration—I love the grilled fruit and pickled balsamic strawberries—always a hit. After reading a review in the The New York Times of ‘That Summer’, the prequel to the Maysles 1975 documentary ‘Grey Gardens’, I put it on my rainy day list. Directed by Goran Hugo Olsson, this documentary “sheds further light on the Beales with footage shot before the making of ‘Grey Gardens’.” Sounds like a must-see to me.
When the Louis Vuitton jeans right came down the runway in the SS15 show, I was intent on getting them. But they didn’t fit me properly and I took a pass. However, I still think about how great and timeless they are (my friend Mary still wears her pair often). This pair by Ellery, which is similar, may be the answer.
Almost half a century after it was founded by Andy Warhol, Interview magazine, the arts and fashion publication, has shuttered. We are in a golden age of indie magazines, so it’s even sadder and weirder to me that one of the earliest groundbreaking publications was struggling. Farewell, Interview.
Givenchy creative director Clare Waight Keller’s royal wedding dress completely overshadowed the Resort 2019 images released last week. The designer’s fifth collection for Givenchy is probably my favorite so far and I’m getting a better sense of her vision for the house.
A few years ago I did a major handbag clean-out and gave away all of my Chanel and Hermès bags, save two. These quilted ones in both beige and green have zoomed to the top of my wish list—the hardware and shape make them modern and completely covetable.
The Net-A-Porter sale launched this morning and there are a number of really good items left. I’ve yet to buy a dress in a print and this one is kind of perfect except it needs either a slip dress underneath or a jacket on top. I have these pumps in grey and love them and this bag is a classic.

Interview has shuttered so I thought I’d re-run one of my all-time favorite stories from the famed magazine.
Mikael Jansson photographed Daria Werbowy in the Swedish archipelago for the September 2014 issue of Interview. The story is stark and breathtakingly beautiful.
Thank you, KL, for the heads-up on this great dress by Frame—would be super over black shorts, too. Maybe a pair of Saint Laurent slides in saddle…
