It’s the boyfriend’s birthday today (we were born the same year, weeks apart), and so the other day I was out searching the neighborhood for a suitable gift when I noticed that the designer Caron Callahan had opened a store on Elizabeth Street. The day’s shopping expedition was not supposed to be about me, but I’m a big fan of what I’d call Callahan’s Euro-utilitarian aesthetic, so I ventured in, and of course bought something: her Krasner jacket, in a really nice cream, and I feel confident I shall wear the hell out of it once things warm up around here a bit more. Here’s something similar but cheaper.
I also recently acquired these jeans, which have what I’d term a skinny boyfriend fit, and a high-but-not-too-high waist.
I’m really trying to up my earring game these days, and I like how these hoops are kind of matchy but also kind of not.
I don’t typically like mini-bags, but I love the shape of this one from Clare V. It doesn’t especially look like a Coach bag from the Bonnie Cashin glory days, but for some reason that’s what it’s reminding me of.
I’ve really come around to understanding the appeal of silk blouses recently—they drape so nicely and layer well too. And this polka-dotted number is so very lovely and sophisticated, if pricier than I wish it was.
And here’s another pretty silk top—also polka dotted, so I guess that’s a thing with me now.
I dislike how this snake-print shirtdress is styled here, but I do think it looks quite easy to wear and also potentially rather glam.
And finally: this cotton tuxedo shirt reminds me of Nili Lotan, but it is from Uniqlo and rings in, remarkably, under $30.
