A short but highly edifying film about pioneering artist Hilma af Klint, who had an an amazing show at the Guggenheim a few years back, and who would likely have been known—had she not kept her work secret— as the mother of abstract art.
May I suggest that, if you haven’t already, you tune in to this week’s episode of Everything is Fine, in which Jenn and I shoot the shit about our being “oldfluencers”; MTV reality stars turned shamen; how your ambition changes when you get older, and so very much more. Listen in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
I endlessly love (and wear!) classic white button-downs, but occasionally I find myself in the mood for one that isn’t so classic, but instead has a detail or two that sets it apart. Like for instance, the ruffles here, which are a bit deeper than you usually see.
And relatedly, I like the spiff tuxedo ruffles on this one.
The drop shoulder and voluminous sleeves on this pleated tunic from Cos give it a romantic vibe.
Meanwhile, the band collar and slightly cropped hem here are rather spiff.
I’m slowly getting used to the puffy shoulders trend—for others, not for me—and everything else on this top is so straightforward that I feel like one could wear it without feeling like one was in costume.
I loathe shopping for swimsuits so much that I even disliked hypothetically shopping for them in order to belatedly bring you this (much-requested) post. I think part of the problem is that I have very specific—some might say slightly boring—taste in swimwear. The simpler the shape the better in my book, which is why I bought this tank suit from Solid & Striped a few years ago and have had it in high rotation every summer since.
I also like a swimsuit that gives off the impression of being barer than it is, like this little number (which also comes in black and red, fyi).
Animal print swimwear can skew tacky pretty fast, but the leopard print on this underwire suit is so impossibly chic. You can also avail yourself of this print in a plunge-neckline iteration.
Summersalt is a new brand that’s been advertising on my social media feed 24-7, and I like the fact that their suits come in sizes two to 22. This one is just so cute and cheery—you can’t see them here, but it has sweet shoulder-ties—and the vertical stripes on the bottom half are quite flattering.
Here’s a chic, retroish choice that I feel would be good for giving the flatter-chested among us a hint of cleavage.
The blouson effect on this one camouflages stomach pooch quite nicely.
I was born in Houston, Texas in 1964 and have lived in New York City since 1988. I had a long career in magazines, working at Sassy, Elle, New York, and Spin, and in 2000, I founded Lucky magazine, which I edited for ten years.
