Polo Player

A short-sleeved, knit polo is one of my wardrobe staples. Perfect on its own right now, then under a blazer in the winter. I love the zipper on the Varley left. And the Bottega Veneta right is pretty nice (and here).

New Blog

Mon Review

Monica Ainley de La Villardière recently launched a blog on Substack, Mon Review. I love her personal style and I’m thrilled she is posting on it. Blogs are back big time.


Officine Générale

Officine Générale just gets better and better. I love the SS23 campaign with Malgosia Bela and a field trip to the store is in order.


Chanel 2024 Resort

When I spied this pale yellow jacket in the Chanel cruise collection, shown yesterday in Los Angeles, my heart skipped a beat. Nicole Phelps, Global Director, Vogue Runway, is spot-on when she says “Viard’s stamp is the more feminine, youthful hand she’s brought to the house since taking over as artistic director in 2019.”  It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Virginie Viard and her designs for Chanel.

On My Mind

Transitional Dressing Nailed

This morning I went with friends to see Thirty Are Better Than One, an exhibition of over 100 artworks by Andy Warhol at the Brant Foundation — it opened today. As I was following these two, I realized that they’ve  nailed transitional dressing. You can’t go wrong with a blazer, jeans, and flats — truly a fail-safe combo. This outfit lets the accessories define the wearer’s personal style.

Bottega Veneta’s Asymmetric Dress

This Bottega Veneta asymmetric cotton midi dress caught my eye. I love the draped neckline and handkerchief hem — the tan is sensational.


In WSJ. Magazine: Glamour Gets Crafty

By Tess Ayano, photographer, for WSJ. Magazine | Styling by Reina Ogawa Clarke

The textures and hand-crafted feel of the pieces in this image, from a superb WSJ. Magazine story, take my breath away.

Fun Fashion

I love minimalism as much as the next ’90s fashion magazine alum, but I try to avoid a head-to-toe minimalist look — a fun accessory keeps it all from bordering on boring.

On My Radar

Random Bits

The Burberry scarf depicting an illustrated scene of the gardens of Highgrove House in Gloucestershire — the private residence of His Majesty King Charles III — is lovely. I am eagerly awaiting the Carrière Frères Yuzu scented diffuser to arrive — Yuzu is one of the key notes in my beloved Louis Vuitton fragrance On The Beach. All of my stationery is blue. I have Smythson note cards and writing paper in Nile and Bond Street, both with white engraving, and Pineider’s Empress cards in blue with white trim. The green trim would be a breath of fresh air. The Guest by Emma Cline is on a number of spring must-read lists.

Linda Wright: A Shrunken Denim Jacket

In a moment of pure synchronicity, my sister was telling me that she saw lots of women wearing shrunken denim jackets in Provence last week when, seconds later, Linda Wright posted on herself wearing one in St. Tropez. Linda got hers at @battagliasttropez. I am now on the hunt for, as Linda says, a “slightly too small” denim jacket. Suggestions welcome.
