Winter Olympics

Curling Crazy

No, this is not about hair; I’ve been watching the Olympics.

Chloe Kim may be a snowboarding phenom and Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir’s biting skating commentary and matching outfits have been hilarious, but curling has caught my, and seemingly everyones, attention. Could it be the stunning Russian curler Anastasia Bryzgalova?

Anastasia and her husband won the bronze and now I’m hooked on curling—go figure.

Carolina Herrera's final bow

End of an Era

Even though I haven’t worn Carolina Herrera in a few years (my daughter just tried a number of beautiful wedding gowns for an upcoming ball), I am saddened by the news that the perfectly polished Mrs. Herrera will no longer be designing for the company that she founded in 1980. Wes Gordon is a good choice for creative director of the brand going forward, but still, it’s the end of an era. An era that began when women ‘dressed’ and ‘lunched’ and track pants weren’t worn outside of the gym.

An Easy Dress

This Cefinn dress ticks a lot of boxes—the easy shape that looks pulled together, interesting color, the fact that it’s muslin so it won’t wrinkle, and it’s a good price are all pluses. This is my favorite season by Samantha Cameron so far.

Bottega Veneta FW18 Show

BV x NY

To celebrate Bottega Veneta’s 50th anniversary and the opening of the BV Maison at 740 Madison, Tomas Maier held the FW18 men’s and women’s collections in New York at the American Stock Exchange last night, and it was just what NYFW needed. The spectacular set, with a working fireplace and mid-century Italian pieces mixed with Bottega Veneta furniture, was used for the after-party where guests mingled with the models and could see the gorgeous clothes up close.

Green Piece

After a number of readers commented on my post yesterday, I went to Net-A-Porter to see what they have in green for spring. If I didn’t already have a green bag, I’d snap up this one.

Céline Green

Red may be the hot color right now, and many NYFW show-goers are wearing blue, but I think Phoebe Philo had the right idea with these green blankets—I’ve seen a number of women cozily wrapped up in them. And with all the red arrows in the financial markets, maybe green is the way to go.

A Winter Tweak

 

This time of year, I wear such a restricted uniform that I’m in a serious rut. I grab the same black pants, boots, and grey peacoat almost daily. I love this Acne Studios suede jacket because it would fit under my peacoat and look fab with everything. The Sophie Buhai earrings are a nod to the multiple hoops trend without breaking the bank (and I’ll bet they’re lighter in weight). And the strappy Chloé boots are the perfect fashion-forward item for spring that you could wear now (with socks).

#Stripes

When I put this picture of Farrah on my Instagram feed it got me thinking about all the lines now devoted to stripes. Nikki Kule, Mark D. Sikes, (both early kic profiles), and the La Ligne team are producing some of the cutest striped pieces.

‘New Romantics’

The WSJ. Magazine photographed Freja in “(t)he season’s glitziest party dressing” for the upcoming March issue. Shot in Naples, this story is divine.
