Classic LV

Looking Good, Again

During the years I cast the Louis Vuitton show under Marc Jacobs I acquired a number of pieces of monogrammed luggage that I still use all the time. However, I haven’t carried a traditional canvas LV handbag in years—I think that’s about to change. Once again, Vestiaire, The Real Real, Farfetch (has a ton), and Shopbop have many and they look great a bit pre-loved.

A Classic Scarf

I posted on the classic scarf last fall, but, I’ve yet to wear one and I have a number of beautiful scarves that should see the light of day. I’m just not sure how to style it without looking matronly. Both The Real Real and Vestiaire have vintage Hermès scarves.

On My Mind

The Big Clean-Out

I am in the process of a major spring cleaning—being ruthless. Deciding on what to do with my old magazines. Last time we moved I tossed the 10 years of Vogue issues I’d cast—was cathartic.

“Out of Africa” Inspired

My dear friend sent me a picture of this fab Joseph skirt—she loves it because it’s so “Out of Africa”. With all the gorgeous neutrals this spring, there’s a good chance many of us will be channeling a bit of Meryl Streep’s wardrobe from the film.

Films

Isle of Dogs

Wes Anderson’s new movie, “Isle of Dogs”, got rave reviews from a number of friends. The story, filmed in stop-action animation, sounds interesting.

WSJ. Magazine

Breezy Staples

The WSJ. Magazine ,that’s on newsstands this weekend, is like the gift that keeps on giving—so many good stories. The belt is my new favorite accessory.

Tiffany & Co. TV Campaign

T: Kendall Conrad

California-based accessories designer Kendall Conrad talks about her love of jewelry in a new Tiffany & Co. tv campaign watch here. When I was at Vogue I cast Kendall in a shoot with Helmut Newtonshe’s even more beautiful today. Kendall was also a kic profile and participated in the White Jeans series.

Three Easy Pieces

From April until early June, I have a number of lunches, a graduation, and other sundry events that require a ladylike look. I’ve been eyeing the multi-hoop trend and love this pair because they are light-weight. This dress could be worn a number of times if I switch up the accessories, the price point is kind, and could easily go from day to evening.  A styling note: with the low-cut armholes, I will wear a black tank underneath. These Saint Laurent mules have been on my list for a few seasons—it’s time to give them a test drive.

Wellness

Wellness is not just a trend, it’s a lifestyle and it’s big business. Gwyneth’s GOOP just raised 50 million in series C funding, Amanda Bacon was an early adopter with her Moon Juice line, my vegan daughter is a by Chloe and Ella Mills fan, and Bobbi Brown is launching a lifestyle company called Beauty Evolution—just to name a few.

I eat well, work out, and live a very eco-conscious lifestyle, but still, I’m not as invested in wellness as I could be. Would love your thoughts on this.
