A hot item for fall is a denim jacket with shearling trim and there are lots of options and price points available. Some of my favorites are by Saint Laurent and here, Kenzo, Levi’s, Isabel Marant Étoile, Eve Denim, and FRAME just released one today—talk about timing.

I absolutely love Kenya Hunt’s LFW look, the Loewe skirt is fantastic. Kenya is the fashion features director of Elle UK.
Thank you, Jenny, for the ID on the skirt!

The tippy top of my FW17 wish list is a shearling jacket. Either of these, from a story in October Vogue Paris, would be perfect.

My daughter, author of the site BakeLogic, and I had lunch with Kerry Diamond a few weeks ago. Kerry is co-editor of the indie food magazine Cherry Bombe and a dear friend. At lunch she told us about putting their first-ever cookbook together “a compilation of crave-worthy recipes from 100+ of the coolest, most creative women around.” Not out until 10/10, but you can pre-order here.
My friend Amy recommended the documentary ‘Minimalism’. As Helmut Lang’s casting director in the late 90s/early 2000s, I assumed that it was about fashion and I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t heard of it. Not so. It’s about over-consumerism and finding happiness by living with less. Ironically, as I was watching, I was loading product into the kic shop. At first I felt guilty, but then I realized that I actually encourage my readers to buy 1/buy quality, which is what the founders of The Minimalists believe, too.
Weirdly, this brings me to sock booties. Last spring I had my eye on the Burberry pair and posted on them. I waffled and didn’t buy them. Recently I was in Zara and picked up a pair thinking they’d be inexpensive and fun. Will I wear them? No, they’re just not me. But, still wanting a pair like the ones in the street style photo above, I dug into my closet and found an old pair of Manolo Blahnik stretch suede boots with a kitten heel and will have them shortened—may not be minimalism, but it is recycling, and that’s good, too.

Suzanne Koller posted these two images on Instagram yesterday and I reposted the top one (the perfect Birkin). I’m in England and the weather is wackier than ever, going from bright sunshine to pouring rain in a matter of seconds. A bag cover is a brilliant idea—Suzanne’s is custom Hermès.
Designer Gabriela Hearst has been on my radar but I’ve yet to see an item that I would love to wear—that is until these two looks came down her SS18 runway.
My New Site
I’ve mentioned from time to time that I’ve wanted to start a home-focused site, but kept putting it on the back burner. No longer—welcome to PALAIS! Interiors, homewares, books, gardens, and real estate—let me know what you think.
The Last Magazine
Photographer Cass Bird captures these last days of warm weather in September in this story from the Fall 2017 issue of The Last Magazine. Dutch model Imaan Hammam is splendid.

Red shoes have been on my list for a few years now, but I’ve yet to pull the trigger. The hot color for fall, this may be the time I go there. Or, perhaps a belt bag is a good idea…
Joseph sweater, Theory belt bag, Frame frayed jeans, Tod’s loafers. Use code SHOP10 (good until 9/18) at checkout for 10% off these and many other items.
