Fave PFW looks

Wish I Could Wear These Now

I’m down for the count with an unrelenting head cold. To pass the time I’ve been perusing PFW show images and these three went straight to my inspiration board. The Sonia Rykiel sweater, Céline coat, and Paco Rabanne sweater dress would all be welcome additions to my wardrobe–wish I could wrap up in them today.

On My Mind

March To-Do List

March = spring break and this year we are doing college tours. I’ve already booked a hotel in Boston for the first leg of the trip and we will stay with family for the second leg.

Before we get on the road, I’m eager to see the Julian Schnabel exhibition at Pace Gallery, which features paintings of the garden at Auvers-sur-oise, France. The two books that I’ll tuck into my suitcase are Joan Didion’s “South and West: From a Notebook”  and “The Drifter” by my onetime Harper’s Bazaar colleague, Christine Lennon. And to try some new recipes–my husband made this cod casserole last night–it was unusual and delicious.

Dior FW17 Collection

Rhapsody In Blue

Navy may have been a bit one-note in Maria Grazia Chiuri’s FW17 collection for Dior, but that’s okay by me. Please, take a minute and review the entire collection on Vogue.

Issue 46

Self Service

Famed lensman Paolo Roversi shot the cover of Self Service issue 46, which hits newsstands (in Europe) tomorrow. Matches Fashion sat down with the editor-in-chief Claire Thomson-Jonville to talk about the magazine’s 25-year history, the launch of a new branch of the Self Service brand, an agency called Content Matters, and the Scottish-born editor’s Parisian style.

Chloé

I don’t wear super short little dresses anymore, but the shoes in Clare Waight Keller’s farewell Chloé show are right up my alley.

Off-The-Shoulder

Last year I toyed with buying an off-the-shoulder dress or top but thought it would be a flash in the pan trend and didn’t pull the trigger. A year later and it’s still going strong. In chambray is crazy chic, I may have to try this one by The Great.

March Vogue

‘Desert Flowers’

These two pictures, from the March issue of Vogue, are on my inspiration board. Sara Moonves’ styling–  the white shirt with cargo pants and the shirtdress under the sweatshirt dress– is spot-on. The bold lip is good, too.

Golden Lobes

Of all the architectural statement earrings, these by J.W. Anderson are my favorites so far.
