On My Mind

Brooke Garber Neidich Inspired

In 2008, Brooke Garber Neidich inherited her father’s Chicago-based fine jewelry business, Sidney Garber. After which, a New York City boutique and e-commerce platform soon followed. Brooke has continued to grow the business and expanded the line for a new generation of customers — women who buy their own jewelry, for example. To honor the company’s 75th anniversary, Sidney Garber recently released a limited-edition, handmade Single Rolling Bracelet and Collana Necklace in 18k yellow gold. The Single Rolling Bracelet is a variation on the iconic Rolling Bracelet – one of the best bracelets of all time.

An ardent philanthropist, Brooke co-founded the Child Mind Institute and sits on the boards of the Whitney museum and Lincoln Center Theater. A tireless fundraiser, she encouraged me to join the annual giving committee at our daughters’ school and emboldened me to make calls. I am not only inspired by Brooke’s impeccable personal style, but her generous spirit, as well.

Brooke donates all her profits to not-for-profit organizations dedicated to children’s mental health, education, the arts, and racial justice.

Miu Miu SS22

Sock It To Me!

This Miu Miu SS22 look is perhaps my favorite from all the recent collections. The dress is just straight up gorgeous and I’m a fan of the socks and loafers pairing. Eager to try it now, I got these to tide me over until spring.

A New Bag

I had a few minutes between an alterations appointment and a lunch lecture yesterday so I did a quick pass through Bergdorf’s handbag and shoe floors. For the first time in ages, I have nothing on my wish list so I figured it would be a harmless expedition. Sometimes I don’t realize I need something until I see it and that was the case yesterday. I own large hobos, clutches, and structured purses, but a supple tuck-under-my-arm shoulder bag would be great for everyday running around. As I passed this Celine Romy sitting on a display cube, it was like a puppy in the window — I couldn’t resist.

Dior: The Perfect Skirt

I love the patchwork of different washes on this Dior SS22 skirt — paired with the camp shirt is cute, too.

More Fall Reads

I’m trying to finish Sally Rooney’s Beautiful Life, Where Are You? before Jonathan Franzen’s new novel, Crossroads, comes out tomorrow — I’ve been asked to lead the discussion on it at book club next month.  Slim Aarons: Style, co-authored by my friend Kate Betts, is available October 19 — I can never get enough of his pictures. “In the summer of 1971, Michael Lesy and a friend found most of the snapshots in Snapshots 1971–77 in a dumpster behind a gigantic photo-processing plant in San Francisco. The photos were in the trash because the machines that printed them made them so fast — duplicates, triplicates, quadruplicates — that the people on the processing line couldn’t stop them.” I just picked up Snapshots 1971-77 and it is such a cool idea. And the second issue of Vogue Scandinavia and the new issue of The Gentlewoman are winging their way to me.

Hermès: Wear Forever Clothes

A gorgeous SS22 Hermès show and I want to really see each look, not just the video. To be continued.

Also, How To Spend It has a fantastic profile on Nadège Vanhée-Cybulski, the head of womenswear, in this weekend’s magazine.

Totême: It’s A Cinch

I love a belted coat, but I’m not a fan of robe style — looks messy when unbelted and my coat is open 90% of the time. However, this one by Totême could sway me. Love the belted poncho, too.

Random Bits

A good dress is a beautiful thing, and this vintage Calvin Klein on Rebecca Longendyke is my idea of perfection. Miuccia Prada’s headscarf and gold bracelet are the epitome of chic. And the belt over the untucked shirt is a nice old-school look.

Hermès Café Clogs

Do I need the Hermès clogs in café? Nope. Do I want them? Yep. But, I think I prefer them with a dark brown sole, like the ones on @alexandragolovanoff below. I suspect that hers are the runway version and were a gift from the designer.
