Bringing The Garden Indoors

@markdsikes mentioned that he wants to start collecting botanical prints, which reminded me of this post.

Botanical prints are one way to bring the garden indoors during the winter months. These beauties are from One Kings Lane.

The Black Shirt

I love this pic of knitwear designer Alexandra Golovanoff —it got me searching for a simple black shirt. A few days ago, I ran a uniform post with a pricey Saint Laurent black blouse and was asked about similar ones at a lower price point. There are many: Theory, Equipment, Frame, Brooks Brothers, and Go Silk are good options.

‘Play It Cool in ’80s-Inspired Styles’

Not sure I ever wanted to see a return of ’80s fashion, but WSJ. Magazine makes a good argument for some styles in this story from the February issue. On newsstands January 27.

Wishing for Spring

Turtleneck sweaters and winter boots are getting so tired—how I would love to run around in a Saint Laurent silk shirt, A.P.C. cropped jeans, and maybe a pair of Church’s brogues (I’m into brogues (and here) btw).

Did You Get The Red Boot Memo?

Many of the fashion influencers I follow have been wearing red boots this winter. Red is ‘hot’ right now and the trend is here to stay—there are some great red boots in the PF18 collections.

Coat Tales

So far, there have been a plethora of great coats in the PF18 collections—real keepers. Maria Grazia Chiuri, inspired this season by Claude Cahun, did some of the best for Christian Dior.

Chloé designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s sophomore collection included these two forever coats.

And Louise Trotter’s Pre-Fall collection for Joseph is packed with great coats. Love the weekend bag, too.

Long Weekend Reading

A few of my friends are reading The Woman in the Window and gave it a thumbs up—perfect for a chilly long weekend.

Hermès

“Capital Caps”

Thank you, Paula, for the heads up on this adorable Hermès video! Wouldn’t it be great if hats really made a comeback?

Sale Items

Speaking of Valentino…

I was going to take down the kic sale section, but there are still so many great items available. Love both of these Valentino boots and now they are nicely priced.

What Goes Around Comes Around, Cont.

A reader commented on my post yesterday that the Valentino Rockstud looks fresh again, too. I agree, these sandals in navy would pair nicely with the Dior jeans I found on Vestiaire.
