Louis Vuitton FW18 Collection
I borrowed the title of this post from the Louis Vuitton show review on WWD—it’s apt. Nicolas Ghesquière reportedly designed the FW18 collection with his elegant and proper female family members in mind. Maybe it’s my age, or that I’m tired of everyone looking like they’ve just been to the gym, but this collection really appeals to me.

Robin Wright looks fantastic in this suiting story on Matches Fashion. The actress talks about her past and present roles and a new sleepwear line Pour Les Femmes, which has a charity bent.

When I was hunting for the perfect denim skirt, I found it at A.P.C., so it’s no surprise that this trench from the FW18 show styled by Suzanne Koller looks like the one.
For the first time ever, I stayed up for the entire Academy Awards and I’m glad that I did. I’d seen many of the films this year, all of which deserved awards. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Frances McDormand—her win made me feel like I’d won, too. To quote The Telegraph “she is, quite frankly, really, truly cool.”

I’m always eager to pick up the newest issue of Self Service. Vogue‘s Mark Holgate sat down with Ezra Petronio, cofounder of Self Service, to talk about the magazine’s upcoming 25th anniversary and a new travel and lifestyle magazine that’s in the works.

The trench is certainly the coat du jour. I need a new one, but I’m not sure which way to go—oversized, leather, long, traditional—there are so many options. The Wall Street Journal has the ultimate guide to this popular spring coat. Vogue sat down with stylist Suzanne Koller to talk about fashion shoots today.

One of my favorite styling tricks is wearing a cuff over a sleeve, either at the wrist or above the elbow. Chloé creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi took this idea and ran with it in the amazing FW18 collection.

When I spied a concho belt on the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini runway and then another one in the March issue of Vogue Paris, I pulled out mine above.
My sister went to boarding school in Arizona in the ’70s and every time we’d visit her my mother would buy a few pieces of Native American jewelry. I benefitted from these shopping sprees and cherish this Navajo concho belt circa 1880. Ebay has many.

I love this David Sims picture of Grace Elizabeth from March Vogue Paris, and the Prada shirt reminded me that I still need a black shirt. The one by Frame below is good because it’s oversized.
After reading an article in T Magazine on primers I remembered that I had one from This Works. I’ve been using it for a few days and it’s really made a difference. Charlotte Tilbury’s products are some of my favorites, so I ordered the Brightening Youth Glow and will let you know if it lives up to its name.
