take two


Speaking of dupes, Mango just came out with its take on The Row's Idaho tote, above, also rendered in a woven-leather oxblood (read: Guccioption, below. Meanwhile, Steve Madden made almost an exact replica of the buckled Ganni, along with a believable knock-off of the strappy Miu Miu, below, this Khaite-inspired slingback, Gucci-like kitten heel and Hermes-ish slide

The Row's most coveted Fall 2024 shoe is not due in stores for months, but that doesn't mean I can't start working its perforated-chic vibe right now.

My current favorite fashionistas--Courtney Grow, Lilly Sisto and Olivia Wayman--have me convinced I need The Row's Idaho bag pronto. I like its eye-catching trapezoid shape, Except I can't decide between the twill (or the tan!) or the  brown leather.

south of the border


Over the weekend, I went to Oaxaca, Mexico, for a photo shoot—2173 miles away to a world where, for me at least, the Milan Fashion shows were not simultaneously unfolding, the ref’s whistles of my son’s weekend volleyball games were blissfully silent, and all I had to worry about was what kind of taco I’d order next. Expect to read about all my discoveries in my next substack, but in the meantime, I will share that I loved wearing this new spring-fresh Anthropologie dress on my trip, that I came across these cool jelly sandals, delightfully similar to these by The Row, in between the best guacamole and shredded cabbage tostadas I’ve ever had and finishing Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow (finally!). Landing back in reality shortly.

getaway plan


Massimo Dutti's spring campaign, shot on location in Venice, triggered major wanderlust--as well as a hot-and-sunny shopping list! It includes the following: the linen eyelet set from River Island, the floral-trimmed And Other Stories' shoes, the knit striped and denim jacket by Sandro, all below, along with this scalloped Citizens of Humanity shirt, this Ulla Johnson one-piece, and this Harbison dress. Happy Weekend, everyone!

cream of the cropped



And just like that we have a new must-have blazer to buy! It's cropped and fitted, tailored and polished, and even functions like a shirt (read: no need to wear anything underneath). Zara (love the fancy Bottega-like buttons) makes the one, above, but I also adore these iterations from Free People (vegan leather),  R13 (khaki canvas), Velvet (classic), J.Crew, and Saint Laurent (tuxedo). 

future perfect



Last I checked, spring is 27 days away, yet Moda Operandi buyer Jasmin Kirk is springing ahead in sub-40-degree NYC, with crochet (paired with leather to make it work now!), a cropped Balenciaga trench, below, (this one from Favorite Daughter is also terrific) and a fringed Khaite dress, among other key next-season silhouettes. I want to fast forward too and winterize these future-ready pieces from Diotima (last pic), Sandro (fringed dress, below), Sezane, (with socks or tights now!), Free People (love the metal clasps), and Maje, (picture the embroidered collars peaking out from a cashmere crewneck!), along with this Eleven Six tasseled top, this gorgeous white Magda Burtrym floral applique bag, and this statement-making Staud top.
