Sale Items

Speaking of Valentino…

I was going to take down the kic sale section, but there are still so many great items available. Love both of these Valentino boots and now they are nicely priced.

Grey calf hair, stretch-suede over-the-knee.

What Goes Around Comes Around, Cont.

A reader commented on my post yesterday that the Valentino Rockstud looks fresh again, too. I agree, these sandals in navy would pair nicely with the Dior jeans I found on Vestiaire.

What Goes Around Comes Around

A few weeks ago I posted the pic of Jessica Hart below and afterwards thought that her Saint Laurent Tribute sandals  (also here) look fresh, again. Then I spied stylist Martha Ward in a pair of Chloé Susanna ankle boots (also here) and had an ‘aha’ moment. I didn’t buy either when they first came out and were all the rage, but they both look great now.

Making The Cut

New year, new length? A number of actresses sported this length at the Golden Globes last evening and they looked great.

Art

Modigliani at The Jewish Museum

If you are in NYC this weekend and looking for ways to beat the deep freeze, put the Modigliani exhibition at The Jewish Museum on your to-do list. I recommend going on Sunday because the newly opened Russ & Daughters is closed on Saturdays and it’s worth a visit.

Fave rerun

Let it Snow, Again!

As the blizzard hammers away I thought I’d rerun the very first kic post. Eight years later and I still live in the same sweatshirt, Levis, and cashmere kerchief—the headscarf is 30 years old, talk about a forever item. 

I love my new mink sweatshirt from Pologeorgis and wear it everywhere.  Nick Pologeorgis and Jenny Roberts were very patient with me as I debated a poncho vs. a sweatshirt. The poncho is easy, you just slip it over your head, however, the sweatshirt is shorter and thus a better length on me. I have even mastered zipping it up the back without help. I know we are all dreaming of sandals and summer dresses but, it’s still winter and here in the Northeast we have masses of snow. At least I feel chic as I contemplate shoveling the walk…

Pologeorgis Furs is located in New York City at 143 West 29th Street, 8th Floor or call 212.563.2250.

Fab Bags That Don’t Break The Bank

I have a number of classic handbags and I paid dearly for them. Yet, I wear them all and many are now well over 10 years old. Thankfully, there are some great new bags that have the same staying power and are not bank-breakingly expensive. LA cool-girl Sarah Staudinger launched her Staud line of bucket bags just few years ago and they sell out as quickly as they come in. And new to the scene Dutch designer Eliza Wandler’s namesake collection Wandler (and here) is poised to be a huge hit.

Evening Wear Dilemma

Cocktail Outfit Query

A longtime kic reader emailed me asking for advice on what to wear to a cocktail party in St. Moritz later this month. I suggested a Vilshenko mid length dress or a tuxedo with great accessories, then jokingly said that I’d be like designer Josephine Dahlin in black, above, next to Giovanna Battaglia Englebert in sequins.

Evening wear is not my forte, so I thought I’d put it out there to all of you to weigh in with some suggestions.

Vogue Japan

Fresh-Faced

These Vogue Japan pictures of Gisele have been sitting on my desktop—I’m smitten with her freckles and gorgeous complexion. I don’t expect to look 37 again but, maybe it’s time for a tweak or two.

I keep talking about the lines around my mouth, but have yet to deal with them properly. A few years ago Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic posted a fantastic skincare guide and swears by lasers, which I am game to try. And more recently, Vogue documented the 15 micro treatments that journalist Jancee Dunn undertook the year prior to her 50th birthday. The video is really interesting; so many procedures that I didn’t even know about.
