Midi Me

When it comes to skirt lengths, I wear them all (maybe not floor-sweeping). Although I was a late adopter of the midi, I’ve made up for lost time — a black satin Anine Bing was the game changer. And, I just bought a beige midi-length ARossGirl x Soler dress, which will be my summer event go-to. Above are my three favorite midi styles: tiered, knit, and satin (navy here) — these will transition into fall nicely. This ARossGirl x Soler navy cotton poplin is lovely, too.

My Music

Doin’ Time

Lana Del Rey’s new single “Doin’ Time”, her cover of Sublime’s 1996 song for the upcoming documentary about the ska-punk band, sounds like a throwback to her first album and it’s fantastic. Gershwin’s “Summertime” from Porgy & Bess is sampled in the Sublime version. Del Rey is on the June cover of Vogue Italia and these images, by Steven Klein, are from the accompanying story.

My Music

Saw Lightning

When I crank up a song while driving, it’s because it’s a winner in my book. “Saw Lightning”  is the first single released from Beck’s upcoming album Hyperspace. Pharrell Williams co-wrote and performs on the track — it is so good.

New Magazine

HommeGirls by Thakoon Panichgul

Congratulations to designer (and ex-Harper’s Bazaar colleague and friend) Thakoon Panichgul on the launch of HommeGirls, a magazine “dedicated to women who shop the men’s department.” The debut issue is on a limited number of newsstands and Vogue has the scoop.

Resort 2020

Givenchy Girl

I’m a huge fan of Clare Waight Keller’s designs for Givenchy — each season gets better and better. The 2020 resort collection is packed with great looks and I’m earmarking my favorites, now.

On My Mind

Tennis Time

June 1st — Wow! How did we get here? I’m not complaining because the French Open is on while I work — my favorite tournament. In its honor, I’ve shelved my Apple watch and pulled out a Rolex (a tournament sponsor), reviewed the terrific Lacoste (another sponsor) FW19 collection by Louise Trotter, and I’m burning Cire by French candle maker Maison Trudon. The Cire proceeds go to the effort to protect the endangered European dark bee. Now, that‘s a major win.

Vogue Paris

Logo Swim

I’m not usually a logo fan, but I like the Chanel swimsuit — it’s fun. Black one-pieces are great and evergreen and I have a number of them…  I, also, really like the low-cut leg. Bottom suit from 2018.

Ear Cuff Love

Recently I posted on wanting to try an ear cuff — a second earring without a second piercing was the goal. Not sure if an ear cuff would be “me”, I decided to test drive the Anita Ko in yellow gold. Once I got it on I was hooked and bought another in white gold. I get compliments from the most unexpected people.
