So, here’s a story that’s played on repeat for Britain. Woman meets afterwork with friends. White wine is poured… Laughing. Watching the sun set over the Thames. White wine is poured. White wine is poured…
Last night was not something I am particularly proud of, but at 6am and hungover this morning I thought a bit of fashion help, in that moment, was crucial. As I struggled in my thickly curtained bedroom (it was too sunny for my eyes), I threw on my most comfortable black pants and a couple of prints. Feeling like I was going to fall over and curl into foetal position did not mean I needed to look it. Here’s a quick style fix to help you get out of your next hungover fashion crisis!

I hate to be a sheep…I truly do. Everyone and I mean everyone is wearing these sandals. In the past year, I have been pretty good about not following the masses on fashion. When the Valentino Rockstud shoes appeared, I refrained from buying them..I was late to the Isabel Marant hi top wedge sneaker craze….I DID eventually get a pair, but it was because I finally figured out how to work them into my wardrobe. I have tried to be sensible about fashion..big ticket items have to be able to be rotated. I cannot justify the purchase any other way.

After I saw that look, I was hooked. Reader, I bought them.
The mornings are still pretty brisk in NYC. Thinking about fashion when you are just trying to stay warm, can sometimes be a daunting task. I ran across this Balmain leather jacket and I can totally say that it got me back into a “fashion state of mind.” HOWEVER, at 5819 USD, it is definitely a wish.
Zara, almost as common as Starbucks in London, has become my ‘go to’ when I need a quick, guiltless wardrobe refresher. I love their variety, and consistency… Consistency is usually a terrible characteristic, but when I’m finished with a tough day at work, and I’m still figuring out dinner – Zara is a lifesaver. Seriously.
I love this bracelet. I have been wearing it with my black and gold Karl Lagerfeld watch, which, I think is a pretty overbearing watch. The bracelet adds a nice touch. I’m a little too old to be having a “Man Repeller Arm Party.” This does the trick!
Bracelet available here.
I’ve been looking for flights for my husband and I to visit his family in Italy. Beyond the draw of the morning cappuccino e cornetto, I am simply looking forward to the sunshine and sea. However, perhaps even before booking, I think it’s absolutely appropriate to do some shopping. Well, appropriate for me. I always feel pressure to ‘bring it’ on my trips to Italy. Don’t tell the Brits, but those Italians really do punch above their weight in fashion. Here’s what I want to wear day one…
1. Ralph Lauren Long-Sleeved Silk Workshirt 2. Marina Rinaldi Trousers 3. Tatiana Dome Ring 4. Stella McCartney Leopard-print acetate sunglasses 5. Sophie Hulme Double plate buckle tote 6. Lara Bohinc Planetaria Pendant 20 7. Saint Laurent ‘Debbie’ Ankle Strap Sandal
