Thank You, Helene

Dear Helene,

When you recommended the J. Crew polo in a comment yesterday, I went to try it on. Fits like a charm and it’s on sale — a win-win for sure.

Thank you for the tip!

Sophie Theallet’s Room 502

I’ve often wondered what happened to the phenomenally talented French designer Sophie Theallet, the ’90s Azzedine Alaïa alum who shuttered her namesake label in 2018.  My question was answered when I ran into my dear friend Adrienne wearing the perfect shirtdress by Room 502, the DTC line Sophie launched from Canada in 2021. I went up a size and it fits perfectly. The dress is with my tailor being shortened and the buttons swapped to black. Thanks, Adrienne!

Polo Player

A short-sleeved, knit polo is one of my wardrobe staples. Perfect on its own right now, then under a blazer in the winter. I love the zipper on the Varley left. And the Bottega Veneta right is pretty nice (and here).

New Blog

Mon Review

Monica Ainley de La Villardière recently launched a blog on Substack, Mon Review. I love her personal style and I’m thrilled she is posting on it. Blogs are back big time.


Officine Générale

Officine Générale just gets better and better. I love the SS23 campaign with Malgosia Bela and a field trip to the store is in order.


Chanel 2024 Resort

When I spied this pale yellow jacket in the Chanel cruise collection, shown yesterday in Los Angeles, my heart skipped a beat. Nicole Phelps, Global Director, Vogue Runway, is spot-on when she says “Viard’s stamp is the more feminine, youthful hand she’s brought to the house since taking over as artistic director in 2019.”  It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Virginie Viard and her designs for Chanel.

On My Mind

Transitional Dressing Nailed

This morning I went with friends to see Thirty Are Better Than One, an exhibition of over 100 artworks by Andy Warhol at the Brant Foundation — it opened today. As I was following these two, I realized that they’ve  nailed transitional dressing. You can’t go wrong with a blazer, jeans, and flats — truly a fail-safe combo. This outfit lets the accessories define the wearer’s personal style.

Bottega Veneta’s Asymmetric Dress

This Bottega Veneta asymmetric cotton midi dress caught my eye. I love the draped neckline and handkerchief hem — the tan is sensational.

The textures and hand-crafted feel of the pieces in this image, from a superb WSJ. Magazine story, take my breath away.
