Natural, non blow-dried, hair is on my radar, and was big on the fw13 runways. I’m inspired by this funny piece in W, and although I do my own styling, I’m going to take the dryer-less challenge.
To avoid total withdrawal, I’ll let my hair air-dry just on the weekends. It’s raining today, perfect time to start.

One of my go-to accessories right now, which I profiled in my fall uniform, is the Isabel Marant necklace. So, when I saw wrap-around necklaces at Valentino, I had to put another look together. You know I’m into fringe and tunic-style dresses, now loafers (I’m inspired by Malgosia’s) are edging their way to the top of my run-around shoe list.
Saint Laurent bracelet, Isabel Marant dress here and here, Isabel Marant necklace, Tod’s loafer, Bottega Veneta clutch.
Like many of you, I have gone through the Valentino show images a number of times. It’s not just the unbelievable fabrics and embroidery that set this show apart, it’s also the leather espadrilles, pinky rings, fringed totes, etc., that are completely covetable.

I was going to post on the Valentino show this morning, but got sidetracked by Marc’s news and took a unintended stroll down memory lane– sorry.
There was a lot to love in this superb collection from the Valentino team. I may even go long.
Fringe on the bags and capes, hello?!?!
These looks, all black with gold chokers, are on my list. Which says a lot because I haven’t even bought 5 things for fall yet! Maybe I’ll just carryover 2 items to spring, Preston’s new Math…
On My Mind

Before I started KiC, I was a casting director. I booked the models for Vogue for 10 years until I decided it was time to try show casting.
One of my first shows was Louis Vuitton with Marc, it was probably his 4th season with the house. Marc and I had known each other since college having spent a very fun (and blisteringly hot) summer studying together in Paris. When I arrived at the Vuitton atelier to start the SS01 casting I was told that I would be sharing a table with Marc’s friend Stephen. For a week I sorted through model cards and did countless go-sees, while next to me, Stephen Sprouse painted graffiti on an enormous stack of LV canvas bags. And the rest is history.
Good luck Marc.
That Marc may be ready to leave and Nicolas Ghesquiere may come in… Very interesting indeed!
Yep, I like the fringe bag at Céline in theory; looks a bit difficult to carry…
Here are two looks I like from the Céline show. I understand Phoebe’s wanting to move in a new direction, however, the graffiti printed pieces don’t work for me.
I cannot wait to see what Phoebe Philo has for us this season. Her SS14 show is tomorrow, and although I’m leaving the vineyard after breakfast, I will be up early to take a peek and post.
This TLC Radiance Cream from Eve Lom tops my list of products I want to try, I hear it’s amazing. I could use a little radiance help as we look at both high schools and colleges for the girls.
