On My Mind

Summer’s End

We were on Martha’s Vineyard the end of August and weirdly the view from my desk was a dead ringer for our backyard at home. That aside, it was great to be away as a family before we take our younger daughter to college—the perfect end to a wonderful summer.

On The Hunt For

New Jeans

The heat wave finally broke and now, especially in the evening, it’s jeans and sweater weather.  A longtime Frame fan, I’ve decided to step out of my wheelhouse and try other brands. So, I turned to my denim spirit animal, Spanish lawyer-turned-fashion consultant Barbara Martelo. The length and fit of these by Khaite (and here) and Re/Done are just how I like ’em.

Food

Watermelon Salad

Just as the heat wave rolled in, our watermelons were ready to be picked—all at once… Cubed with feta, basil, mint, and a balsamic vinaigrette is the perfect beat-the-heat summer salad.

September Vogue Paris Highlights

September Vogue Paris is the gift that keeps on giving—so many great stories. Above are three of my favorite images, which could also be my fall wish-list. An Hermès poncho, vintage cowboy boots, and classic jewelry would all be welcome additions to my wardrobe. The story on Yasmin Le Bon is divine—she is divine.

‘Claudia’

Cowboy boots and concha belts continue to be the accessories du jour and they look especially good on the sublime Claudia Schiffer in this September Vogue Paris story.

On My Mind

Wardrobe.NYC

As I’m slowly buying a few items for fall, I keep thinking about Wardrobe.NYC, the “anti-fast fashion” direct-to-consumer e-commerce-only collection of tailored essentials that designer Josh Goot and stylist Christine Centenera launched the end of 2017. I love the concept—a complete capsule of luxury pieces, which would create an instant uniform.  Now the duo have launched performance essentials and they look great, too.

Spotlight On Suzanne Koller

It’s no secret that I am a superfan of stylist Suzanne Koller and I’ve posted on her work numerous times. The fashion director of M Le Monde magazine and founder of Self Service is one of my all-time fashion heroes—I’m always inspired by her stories.

So, it’s great that 10 Magazine turned the lens on Ms. Koller and she’s sharing the pictures from the shoot on IG—lucky us.

Beauty

Just Lovely

At a lunch recently, a dear friend shared that she is working with India Hicks and asked if I would try a few items from the IH beauty line. Of course! The only beauty products I promote are ones that I use and love or are highly recommended by friends. So, a test drive was welcome.

Two days later an India Hicks Go Bag showed up on my doorstep. Beauty industry veteran Catherine Walsh helped India develop the line and the products are fantastic. I’m obsessed with the Lovely Balm, which uses organic beeswax and is not overly scented or greasy. It can be used on lips, cuticles, elbows, or any spot that needs a little TLC.

Thanks, Liz!

WSJ. Magazine

‘Bold Types’

I cherry picked these images from a story in the upcoming WSJ. Magazine, which will be on newsstands August 25, because I love pale yellow and consider it a neutral. Paired with a trench is really, really chic.

Sacai Makes Getting Dressed Easy

I bought a Sacai dress in 2011 and it is still one of the more interesting items in my closet. Because of that, I wear it all the time and it never feels dated. Now I’m eyeing a top—I’ve no doubt that we will see one or all of the above on showgoers next month. What makes them so great is that they look like layered separates, yet are a hybrid of a sweater and shirt pieced together—talk about grab and go.
