Things I bought, things I want

I have been looking for a spring jacket that’s on the longer side—I’m feeling larger than usual lately; butt-coverage has become a priority—and this chunky wool sweater coat from Everlane is just the right weight for those spring days when a super-light jacket isn’t quite going to do the trick.

I am so desperate for this pink-and-grey-striped shirt—part of a collab between Clare Vivier and Steven Alan—that if it wasn’t so crappy out today, I might be heading right over to my local CV outpost on Elizabeth Street to make it mine.

Oh, these are crazy, I know. And they once again confirm my brother Mike’s assertion that my taste in shoes is too tricky. But they are just so good.

Her wardrobe, please

french01Behold one Capucine Safyurtlu*, my style obsession of the moment and a French fashion editor, because of course she is. Check out how she rotates the same cornerstone pieces into her outfits repeatedly:  the studded belt, the gray trousers, the black top. Google search her and you’ll see the black pumps get quite a workout too.  It can never be said enough: this kind of reliance on fewer, better pieces really is how you create a signature style.

*I know, the cigarette. Awful. Let’s  chalk it up to Frenchiness and hope she accessorizes with a nicotine patch some time soon.

Hell yes, Eileen Fisher

Eileen Fisher has been on my mind for a couple of reasons lately. Mostly because of that recent (and curious) New Yorker profile of Fisher by Janet Malcolm a few weeks back, but also because people keep asking me about the line, and even sending links to various pieces with notes that read: This is cool, right? Cool is not a word typically associated with Eileen Fisher, but it’s the word that keeps popping up. And I’d say that, based on this boss cashmere poncho that I spied on their website the other day, I’m inclined to agree.

What’s your take on the brand, guys? I’m curious.
