The theme this time around—and I didn’t realize I even had a theme until I took a look at all of these dresses together—is ease and comfort and a certain throw-it-on-and-go appeal. And isn’t that we’re all looking for in a dress as the weather turns warmer? Let’s start with the one I covet most intensely: this zebra-print is so good and somehow not-too-overwhelming, and I love the neckline—so graceful.
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.
The cleanest, thinnest (like, thin enough to layer under a blazer) perfect little wool-and-silk-blend cardigan. An investment, but it is going to pay off handsomely on the cost-per-wear front, I feel it. I am in fact am wearing it as I type.
This super-soft scarf has one of the best prints I’ve seen in a while—and an unlikely but totally winning color palette.
I can’t find any archival photos to back up the following assertion, but this strikes me as the kind of striped tee Jane Birkin might have worn in the 70s.
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.
