Striped Wool Cape.

It’s just about cape weather, and oh do I love this one! Clean lines + simple stripes made it an instant favorite. I have been taking it out anytime I might be cold (it’s so cute over dresses too) and I’m planning to try and belt it next. And once it gets really cold, it will be cute worn over my coats.

Edie Dress.

This dress is one of the most flattering pieces I own. I am obsessed with it. I wore it to a dinner party during fashion week and got so many compliments on it. The thick brocade fabric feels so luxe and fancy… I know I’ll probably pull it out for holiday parties this winter, too.

“Home is Where The Food Is.” + Giveaway.

Out of all of my jewelry, my Maps by A. Jaffe Necklace is one of my favorite, most personal pieces. The front is engraved with a map of my childhood neighborhood with a diamond to represent the house I grew up inĀ (where my parents still live), and the back says, “Home is Where the Food is.” That may sound a little odd, so let me explain…

Watercolor Print.

I realize that a floral dress may not be the most practical purchase as we roll into Fall, but I couldn’t take my eyes off of this one. The fit & flare silhouette is spot on (and so flattering), and the watercolor print is really, really pretty. I justified it by thinking of three ways that I can wear it in cooler weather:

Blue and White.

This skirt is like, my favorite thing ever. (Note that I’m using “like” ironically.) I love it. I’ve been a long time admirer of all things Ulla Johnson (my sister introduced me to her, and gets the greatest dresses at her sample sales). This one is swingy and pretty, and the smocking at the top makes it feel really special.

Navy Lace Dress.

Annnd, Monday. I am back from vacation, back into the swing of New York work and life, and straight into the tail end of fashion week. Today I’m laying relatively low… attending two shows (Lela Rose and Zero by Maria Cornejo) and a fun dinner tonight. Getting to go to these shows and events is such a fun privilege…
