A new Tabletop line and pop-up at Bergdorf Goodman
J.J. Martin, founder of the fab online shop La Double J, has been a busy bee recently with a newly launched tabletop line and an upcoming pop-up shop in Bergdorf Goodman. I look forward to catching up with my dear friend when she’s in NYC later this month.

On My Mind
Top of my April to-do list is the Irving Penn exhibition at the Met. I worked with Mr. Penn often when I was at Vogue, an honor to say the least. The Whitney Biennial is up, but with spring break, I have yet to go. Date night drinks at the recently opened Whitby Hotel sounds fun. And readying the garden (just herbs this year) and tucking into Elizabeth Strout’s new book, which will be released April 25, are also on my list.
Cameron Russell is one of my favorite models and she looks particularly stunning in this story by Lachlan Bailey for Holiday. Clare Richardson’s styling is pretty fab, too.
I try to add a fashion-forward item to my wardrobe each season, this gives my classic outfits (see my blazer post) a bit of zing and keeps my look current. Sometimes it’s a big ticket item, sometimes it’s not. These are a few things I’ve had my eye on and just one would do the trick.
Giambttista Valli Jacket, J.W. Anderson earring, Burberry booties, Balenciaga choker, Isabel Marant corset belt, Vetements + Manolo Blahnik slingback, Balenciaga small tote.
I love the Giorgio Armani jacket and red Ralph Lauren sweater in this WSJ. Magazine story– perfect transition pieces.

I am on the road visiting colleges with my daughter. Wish I had this Vince suede jacket, also here, and on sale here (thank you, Britta!), would be a nice alternative to my navy blazer, my uniform topper this week.
After seeing a number of show-goers carrying the Céline Clasp bag, I decided to pop into the shop and take a look at it. There’s no denying that it is lovely.
We are heading into blazer weather. Paired with a white shirt, Breton striped top, or light-weight turtleneck, a blazer is a timeless wardrobe staple and the perfect transition piece (think Emmanuelle Alt and Charlotte Casiraghi). As a horseback riding family, we have no shortage of navy jackets on hand. On cool mornings I top off with a cashmere wrap then stow it away when the temp rises during the day. The top-handle bag updates this classic look.

I think I’ve been bitten by the blue-and-white bug– love these plates by Aerin Lauder for Williams Sonoma.

This Tibi dress (and here) looks like it could be a forever piece in my wardrobe– it’s good in white, too. I’d close the side slits and shorten to my knee.
