White Lace Dress and Plaid Jacket, Outside Chanel

I love this combination of a formal gown made of exquisite white lace with a casual beret and plaid jacket. The jewelry and Chanel bag take it up a notch further, styling-wise. Very French, very Chanel.

White Dress and Chanel Jacket, Outside Chanel

Such a great summer-to-fall transitional outfit on a guest at the Chanel show. She tops a summery white minidress with a boucle Chanel jacket, black Chanel hat and adds black Chanel boots with a chain motif. The bag is Hermès. This is the luxury version of transitional, but you could also try the same mix with any non-Chanel items you have on hand.

Anna Dello Russo at Reed Krakoff SS2014

Of course, one of the most visible presences on the New York fashion week scene was Anna Dello Russo. At the Reed Krakoff show on Wednesday, she wore fabulous Tom Ford gold gladiator boots, Balenciaga dress and portrait necklace by Noor Fares. Miraculously, Anna chose to walk down several flights of stairs in those boots at the preceding Philosophy show rather than take the elevator, thus avoiding the infamous collapsing elevator of NYFW SS2014.

Close up of that necklace, after the jump.  (more…)

White Prada Dress, Outside the Miu Miu Show

A crisp white dress like this one by Prada never melts in the heat. The pop of color from the bag is the perfect finishing touch.

Here’s another Gatsby-esque look for you: the house photographer of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in a white dress and brown oxfords. Also love the boater hat as a substitute for the ubiquitous straw fedora. Expect 1920s chic to reign this summer as we near the release of The Great Gatsby.

White Dress and Fedora, Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

An ivory silk dress and fedora channels the Great Gatsby at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. And about that fedora: D. and I have an ongoing argument about whether they are out of style. But the answer seems to be that they will never go out of style. They have been adopted into the canon of American fashion as surely as the polo shirt.
