Augustinus Bader For Hair

A number of reviewers raved about the Augustinus Bader hair products so I’m going to give the shampoo, conditioner, and scalp treatment a test drive. I’ll share the results.

Couture Street Style

Snippets of Style

I spied lots of chic bits on the couture show-goers. Carine’s balaclava, a black headscarf on Julia Fox, Eugénie Trochu’s gold bangles, socks with sandals, patterned and fishnet tights, and the two-tone Chanel bag are all on my radar.

February Harper's Bazaar

‘California Dreaming’

Photography by Bryan Liston  Styling by Alexander Picon

It’s -7° this morning and my dachshund gave me the side-eye as I opened the door. When my daughter was at UCLA I had an excuse to go to Los Angeles often; I miss that. This beautiful February Harper’s Bazaar story on Anna Ewers is a vivid example of what I am missing.



I 🖤Chanel Haute Couture

From Charlotte Casiraghi riding her horse (and cantering no less) on the catwalk opening the Chanel Haute Couture SS22 presentation, to the lovely wedding dress finale, this is a show to watch. Gorgeous clothes, set design, and music — perfection.


Christian Dior Couture: Calm & Masterful Craftsmanship

Prior to the Christian Dior SS22 haute Couture show, Maria Grazia Chiuri spoke with Vogue about her passion for construction and craftsmanship. The collection — all black, white, and greys — is a quiet testament to to this passion. My favorite PF22 shirtdress is repeated here, and the floor-sweeping pale coat and delicate rings are sublime.

On My Mind

Winter To-Do List

While tucked up at home, I’m keeping busy taking printmaking classes online at the Whitney Museum of American Art, reading Claire Messud’s new novel A Dream Life, and watching films on the Criterion Channel. Broadening my world without leaving the house.

The Manolo Blahnik Basiana

I may have my eye on a pair of Celine pumps in the previous post, however, when these Manolo Blahnik Basiana pumps popped up in a “What’s New” email this morning, my heart skipped a beat. Inspired by Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s personal style, they tick all the boxes, and then some.

A Very Short List

The Saint Laurent chain belt is one of my favorite purchases of 2021 — I wear it all the time. When I spied this smaller, curb-link belt in the Giambattista Valli PF22 runway images earlier this week, it went directly onto my wish list. As much as I love these Celine SS22 shoes, I already have the Manolo Blahnik Turgimods that may be too similar to justify another pair. Perhaps in a different color… I know I’ll want a slouchier bag so I’ve kept the Celine Romy in it’s dust bag waiting for spring.


Charlotte Tilbury’s New Foundation

I saw that Charlotte Tilbury launched Beautiful Skin Foundation earlier this month, but I’ve been preoccupied with skincare so I’m late to the game on this news. I’ve used her products for years and only once strayed to try the Westman Atelier line. Gucci’s products are great, but way too heavy for my dry skin. CT’s Beautiful Skin is touted to be hydrating — I’m in.
