I first discovered ba&sh when I was in Paris about six years ago, and a bird relieved itself on the crisp white shirt I was wearing, and suddenly I found myself several Metro stops away from my suitcase and in need of a fresh top. And I rediscovered it the other day when my friend Rene and I were having a little shopping date in Nolita, and wandered into the ba&sh store on Elizabeth Street. Some of the pieces on offer are on the young side, and others have altogether too many ruffles. And they aren’t cheap. But I do think they do prints better than anyone else does at that price point (check out the excellent floral-and-stripes business on this pretty dress) and the silhouettes in general are nicely sophisticated.
I do not not need another jacket, but am pretty much dying over this tweedy little number. It looks eminently layer-able.
I never like green and red together, but it somehow works on this pretty top, maybe because the reds are nice and deep.
A striped jacket is always a fun thing to wear, and this one is subtle enough not to be costume-y.
The print on this shirt is on the loud side—I believe in a good way—so I’d wear it under a blazer or V-neck sweater so you see just a hint on it.
A chic and versatile black dress with a higher neckline than I usually go for, but it’s good when we can surprise ourselves.
I dig the dots-on-dots print of this skirt, and the fact that it’s got a little metallic thing going on too.
Suddenly I am all about a short-sleeved sweater, and I’d wear this one exactly as it is styled here: layered over a button-down.
This coat is on the pricey side, but it is so well-cut, and the purple is nicely unexpected.
I’m always attracted to a good yellow top—who knows why—and this tie-neck specimen is pretty damn good.
