Stilettos and Sweats

Stilettos and Sweats 4

I often find myself on the road to LA for meetings or events wanting to be comfortable in the car, but also look put together on arrival. I don’t want to have to do some Wonder Woman-like change in a bathroom, or, as is the case sometimes, between my car doors. It’s quite an art form and something I’m now learning how to avoid. I’ve discovered really cool ways of dressing up sweats. Raquel Allegra always makes super soft, lightweight ones in beautiful muted colors and prints. I’ll wear them in the car with flats or sandals and a tank top and once I’ve reached my destination, throw on a pair of heels or booties and a blazer or cashmere sweater. It’s that easy! I drove down yesterday to see my husband in a play and pulled this effortless and easy look together.

Fall Layers

As I pack my bag for PFW, I’m checking the weather and realizing that Paris is straddling the fence between summer and fall. Makes for challenging packing. In these situations, I think about layers and how best to put them together. A lightweight trench is the perfect outer piece and Gryphon is my go-to designer. An under shirt and t shirt can be unpeeled or added as the temperature shifts and I love wearing stripes in Paris. It’s my nod to the image I had growing up of a chic girl on her bicycle, wearing slim jeans and a striped T. When it comes to footwear, I’m officially ready for boots and my fall collection wouldn’t be complete without an OTK (over the knee). They are slenderizing and so versatile, especially if you pick an everyday heel height like the Alberto Fermani Lissandra’s. I can confirm, as I have three pairs from previous seasons, that they are comfortable worn all day long (I gave them the walking all over Paris and NYC test). These suede beauties are next on the list.

Weekend Wanderings

I had some errands to run in LA this weekend, to get organized for my buying trip to NYC and I can’t think what I did before my Anya Hindmarch cross body bag. It’s so practical, lightweight and all the interior pockets keep your essentials well organized. It’s a staple that will be coming to the city with me.

Street Style – London Style

One of my favorite things about London is the style. Somehow Londoners dress with a kind of ease that never looks overdone. It’s preppy, punk and polished all at the same time. And even more impressive, is no matter how cold the weather, and it was COLD, the style never suffers.

Me in my MiH Bonn jeans. Available at DIANI. (shout-out for the British denim brand). Helmut by Helmut Lang jacket, Isabel Marant moccasins (get on the wait list at DIANI. 1 877 342 6474), Plush hat.

I bought these Dr. Martens last year to ride my motorbike in, not realizing that they were going to make a comeback. They’re all over London. I’m wearing mine with Rag and Bone skinnies and an Anya Hindmarch animal print bag (another Brit designer).

Spotted. Anya Hindmarch Bathurst bag (get yours at DIANI) and Isabel Marant Beckett sneakers (get on the wait list at DIANI. 1 877 342 6474).

Love her edgy office look. Mulberry bag.

Sometimes when you can’t stop wearing black or brown, add your color to your hair. So punky and so British.

Have I told you I have a mens shoe obsession? Nothing beats a guy in a sharp pair of shoes. Spotted all over the tube.

Sneakers, sneakers everywhere. Converse and Adidas face-off.

A Johnny Depp look-a-like.

My fella looking very dapper in a Rag and Bone blazer, Barbour scarf and Goorin Bros cap.

My fella and his uber chic Paul Smith shoes (Supporting the Brit designers).

Love ’em or hate ’em, they got style.

Spotted at Tate Modern. Isabel Marant Beckett sneakers in cobalt. Get on the wait list for other colors at DIANI. 1 877 342 6474. Burberry umbrella.

This lad’s got mad style for walking the entire length of the Embankment balancing a ball on his noggin.

Yes, it’s Isabel Marant, again. Spotted at London’s Heathrow airport. The Balesi sneaker in denim. Get yours here at DIANI. Louis Vuitton bag.

Highlights from NYC – Day 1

You can always expect colorful and luxurious bags from British designer, Anya Hindmarch and her Fall ’13 collection was no exception. She’s been designing bags and clutches for the red carpet and chic-on-the-street for many years and her witty touches make her my go-to bag every season. Here are the highlights from the collection.

Jewel tones and ombre are huge for fall.

Tassels can’t be too big.

I’m dying over this bag!

Our best seller for several seasons, this cross body has all the signature Anya Hindmarch interior compartments. And this red is the perfect red.

Our youngest assistant, Dylan knows his bags.

Another personal favorite. This oversized clutch is perfect for the holiday season.

Anya loves her color smudging. This ombre grey is so chic!

This metallic clutch has an engraved sign on the clasp that says, “Break incase of an emergency”. Love!

We love you too, Anya.

Assistant, Victoria’s personal favorite in beautiful bordeaux.
