Happy Saturday! It’s hard to believe that we have literally three days to go before Christmas. I say this, as it literally means limited time to get ourselves sorted for our first-ever Christmas luncheon for the “orphans” (aka Manhattanites who have not left the city… much like ourselves).
Though I am excited – in more ways than one! These photos were taken by the lovely and talented Logan Lee Lamson, writer, creative spirit, filmmaker, and super sweetheart.
For the occasion, I wanted to do something decadent yet still fresh and young – so I picked this fantastically whimsical, gramophone top by Charlotte Taylor, also a product of my recent collaboration with the Young British Designers. This fur stole (faux of course!) I’ve had for ages, sine 2004!! My boyfriend at the time had criticized it for being “too over the top.” But what did he know about fashion anyways? (Isn’t that precisely why he’s been relegated to the “ex” category? Ha). Last but not least, the skirt I donned happens to be one of my favorite A-line pieces, hand-made by a designer in the Lower East Side (whose name sadly escapes me). The fit is fabulous and super flattering (I wouldn’t recommend jogging in it though!), and very reminiscent of the glamour and appeal of the “Mad Men” era.
One thing is for sure, nothing exudes more power and confidence than this combo right here!
