Do you always gravitate to the same color? This is it for me. Thank goodness it works on brunettes. I’m loving the above swimsuit from J Crew, though I’d rather cut off a small appendage than put it on after the holidays. Seriously.
Now this is more like it! Throw this oversized cashmere beauty from Equipment on with some leggings or skinny jeans and the sins of overindulgence are washed away.
Tom Ford does everything right. Including this wallet-emptying perfume.
Love these Onyx and Amethyst Earrings from Bounkit.
Ridiculously indulgent, mildly impractical. But this vest from Barneys would be warm and toasty. Which DOES makes it practical. Kind of. Okay, I’m reaching. But it is sooo cold here!
Mulberry’s Petrol Snakeskin Printed Bayswater bag available at Stylebop. Sigh.
A cheeky little iPhone case from Tory Burch, on sale here.
I’ll admit it. I have a Lafco candle addiction. When you are done burning one completely, you can pop it in the freezer to get the remaining wax out and use the beautiful glass as a vase. How’s that for being green?
Crazy over Claus Porto’s Brise Marine shea butter soap, available here.
Dreamy suede pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti, on sale here.
And finally, the beautiful (and budget friendly!) Grand Stone bracelet from J Crew.

During this season of gusty winds and unexpected rain showers, take a fashion cue from Nine d’Urso, the chic young daughter of Parisian style icon and author Ines de la Fressange, and invest in a wear-forever trench. Rain or shine, a trench works beautifully with everything from denim to dresses and instantly makes you feel pulled together.

My absolute sartorial crush, fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia, wearing a gorgeous but wildly impractical green leather Valentino trench. She will definitely need the umbrella should April showers arise!

“Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
This weekend, while watching Alice in Wonderland with my daughter, I was reminded of what is perhaps my favorite fashion editorial of all time. World-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz shot Natalia Vodianova as the inimitable Alice for the December 2003 issue of Vogue. Several of the world’s top designers dressed Vodianova in their Alice inspired creations for this spread. The icing on the (tea)cake was that each designer was photographed with her, posing as characters from the famous Lewis Carroll novel.
Vodianova wears Atelier Versace, with Donatella Versace.
