I’ve had my eye on this Proenza Schouler halter dress since I spied it in the PF21 collection images — the crepe and bouclé-tweed combo speak to me. When I love an evening piece, I buy it — evening wear rarely goes out of style. And the dress is on sale, no less. I’ll wear it with these Jennifer Behr crystal earrings and my Manolo Blahnik Turgimod T-bar pumps.

Summer 2022 Collection
The Celine Summer 2022 collection film, shot in Nice, France, is packed with covetable clothes and accessories — this is my favorite Celine collection by Hedi Slimane, yet. And, the shoulder-length hair is perfection.
This Wales Bonner dark denim skirt suit is very smart. Love the Safari-style jacket and top stitching on the skirt hem — super chic and on sale.
My mother was an ardent hostess and entertained frequently. She loved wooden plates and platters, especially for winter gatherings. I’ve taken a page out of her book and started my own collection. A pine scented candle, hand-printed tablecloth, rattan breakfast tray, and snuggly boots make the short, cold days cozier.
On My Mind
With today being the first day of Hanukkah and the first Sunday of Advent, many folks begin their holiday festivities. Here’s to celebrating with gusto! xp
I’ve given up on trying to master a whole Thanksgiving turkey (yesterday’s was particularly awful) and moved on to planning Christmas. If I had my druthers, I’d ask Santa for something spectacular from Chanel. The coat topped my fall wish list, but my size sold out immediately. That’s okay, these suede & grosgrain flats are divine and the Bouton de Camélia earrings definitely tick the spectacular box.

After I posted on Alissa Zachary’s line High Sport, a few folks asked about the Manolo Blahnik Ballerimu mules. Thanks, Alissa.
We love Milk Bar Pie aka Crack Pie, so I ordered the pumpkin version for Thanksgiving. Apple Cider Donut Cake sounds pretty good, too. You can still place an order today.
Earlier this week, at an author reading, I spied a woman wearing a spectacular pair of silver sandals. It’s chilly in NYC so she wore them with tights — I was mesmerized. I hadn’t twigged the metallic trend and I rarely go for silver, but at that moment, it looked so right. A pair of silver Belgian Shoes are on their way to me. They could be perfect with trim, cropped black trousers and a black sweater when entertaining at home.

On My Radar
Last time I saw my friend Karene, long-time fit model for The Row, she was wearing a stunning knit skirt by the designer Alissa Zachary. An alum of The Row and Khaite, Zachary developed a stretchy, shine-free knit that she then used for her own line, High Sport. Vogue just profiled Zachary and got the scoop on her collection of incredibly chic and wearable pieces.
