The type of jackets that are as good with jeans as they are with little work dresses and skirts, and that layer nicely under winter coats once the weather turns polar. I’m a bag fan of the whole lapel-facing-inward trend, and think it works especially nicely here.
Leather and boucle is a combination that never ceases to charm.
A whole lot of slick for under $100.
This brass horse shoe feels equal parts classic and ’70s to me.
A wee little touch of punk for your pile.
A thicker cuff always looks nice when mixed in with skinnier bracelets.
Like the fisherman’s knot bracelets we wore as kids, but all grown up.
And this is just pretty for miles.
Forgive me in advance for breaking the GOACA price limit, but several of you asked what I was wearing in this picture, and I have been dying for an excuse to show you what is without a doubt my most exciting purchase of the entire fall anyway. I will say this for Isabel Marant: when she nails it, she really nails it.
It’s all about the back view on this one.
I bought two new long-sleeved silk tees for fall, and they’ve already proven to be fantastically versatile: they work just as well with your slouchiest trousers as your tightest jeans, can be dressed way up or down, and tucked and way you please: in, out, or the old half-and-half. This windowpane check could not be a whole lot simpler, but stops well short of austere.
A super zoomed-in plaid from one of my all-time favorite brands, A Detacher.
A totally subtle—but nevertheless thoroughly arresting—abstract print.
This moto jacket from Loft’s little sister line Lou & Grey is like a more casual, cooler, infinitely cheaper version of this.
I once thought that my taste would become more refined and understated as I aged, but the older I get, the more I am drawn to bright, shiny things (am I alone in this?)—and I’m pretty sure that by the time I hit my seventies, I’m going to be one of those ladies whose outfits are far more amusing than they are stylish. I feel similarly about items for the home: gold used to strike me as tacky for interiors, but now I’m loving little hits of it: like this Fornasetti trinket tray, which is currently on my top 5 list of things I’d like to receive as a gift.
A wee chevron box for your whatnots.
Just an urchin-shaped thing that I suddenly feel quite strongly belongs on my coffee table.
I totally already own this.
