frannie gilligan

Everything about the above outfit is perfection--its balance of ease and polish, uptown and downtown, feminine and masculine. But I'm even more obsessed with the person wearing it. Her name is Frannie Gilligan, and you may recognize her as Clare V's beautiful, bag-toting model. (Designer Clare Vivier happens to be her aunt!). Frannie compels me not only to stock up on all of Clare V's amazing bags, including the just-out woven tote, above (20% off here!), but also to want whatever she's wearing. Let's start with Frannie's vintage Levi's jeans, above, which she procured at Mille. They boast a high waist, straight leg and perfect length (i.e., most flattering combo ever). I found the most excellent versions from Levi's here and here as they're sold out everywhere else (I'd cut the hem to adjust length and for worn-in effect). Then there are Frannie's signature retro-chic, wear-with-everything loafers by Tod's, her cat-eye sunglasses, her adorable Peter Pan-collared blouses, like this and this, her pretty floral dresses (this, this and this) and, of course, her aunt's latest spring bags, including the Petit Bateau (third pic below, on sale here), metallic midi-sac (immediately below, also on sale) and this punchy lizard-embossed clutch (my fave and also on sale!).
