Pilcro and the Letterpress corduroy bellbottoms

So you want to be a rock ‘n’ roll star.

[Pilcro & The Letterpress cords (Anthropologie) + vintage Key West t-shirt + vintage squash blossom + Jeffrey Campbell fringed booties.

Rachel Zoe at Shopbop

Rachel Zoe maxi dress.

I would live in this. Rachel Zoe’s new collection popped up on ShopBop today and it doesn’t disappoint. I spy some glorious flares and tie-neck blouses. And as I would have hoped from her, there’s enough serious RZ vibes coming across that this probably won’t be universally dug on; anything other way would have seemed […]

Caftan: Diana Rigg in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

While design*sponge’s “Living In” features make me want to sort of live in movies as a rule, if I really had to pick one movie to live inside, it’d be On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. I am sort of a Bond spazz in general—don’t get me started on the John Barry scores—but Diana Rigg’s wardrobe […]

Emilio Pucci Fall 2010 runway

Emilio Pucci Fall 2010: black and blue and hot all over.

Emilio Pucci Fall 2010, all images courtesy Style.com. My favorite look from the collection: I love the palette of this collection, like a beautiful bruise—a really nasty, purple one with yellow-green edges. If this is brutal, nose-shattering assault to the face, I’ll take it. The look on the left would be perfect for me, in […]

Ralph Lauren Fall 2010 evening

Ralph Lauren Fall 2010 RTW.

How I’m dressing this fall, head to toe: Ralph Lauren’s “bohemian gypsy” looks from the Fall 2010 show knocked my proverbial beanie off. Turtlenecks under long dresses? (See: Vena Cava.) Genius. It’s like Candice Bergen-cum-Stevie Nicks, who coincidentally was the soundtrack to this show. [All images courtesy style.com] (more…)

Saratoga Battlefield

Vintage military jacket.

[Gap gingham shirt + Current/Elliott Elephant Bell Jeans + old old cowboy boots + vintage Vietnam-era jacket of Rob’s, previously belonging to a Mr. Underhill.] Two areas of discussion today. First would be a Splurge v. Steal find so all you cats can hurry out and snag this shirt before it’s sold out. I’ve had […]

Broadening our horizons.

So I made Rob go to the only dance club in Saratoga late last night—Thirteen. The absurdity of the situation was not lost on us, I assure you—after just having polished off roughly $40 of rare cheeses and a bottle of Tinta de Toro, to a soundtrack of John Coltrane and Robert Johnson. We don’t […]

Amazing editorial: VOGUE’s Americans in Paris.

Not that there’s ever really a time when we’re not all completely fascinated with Paris, but I feel like—at least here in blog land, on the outskirts of the fashion community, adoring onlookers we are—it’s come to a head lately. Maybe it’s the steady rise of Garance’s fabulous live-from-les-Jardins coverage on her blog, helped by […]

Penny Lane shops the 2010 collections.

She was all over the place this season! While not quite as dead-ringer-ish as Gucci Fall RTW ’08 (best. ever.), I was getting vibes from her all over the runways. I imagined her giggling into her Mongolian fur-trimmed coat collar at the shows this February, with fingers covered in rings and a pocket full of […]

In nonfiction.

[Ages-old Billy Blues belted skirt + Torn by Ronny Kobo vest + JCrew henley + Prada boots.] I love this skirt, but it also must be noted that it is the loudest garment I own. I sounded like I was beating carpets with a broom when I walked. (more…)
