What I Love Now: French Sailor Shirt

26 Aug

Seen on everyone from Coco Chanel to Pablo Picasso over the years, the nautical striped shirt–often referred to as a “Breton”–is everywhere this fall.  It looks good on (almost) everyone–clean lines, classic styling and an impressive pedigree–could we ask for more?  Fabulous.

Part of Fenton/Fallon’s collection for J.Crew, this “rumpled rhinestone bracelet” looks like it would be a lot of fun to wear…

How chic is this set of baby utensils?


What I Love Now…Lands’ End Canvas

27 Jul

Lands’ End “Canvas”  is the brand’s answer to the demand for more classic, streamlined wardrobe staples for women.  They’ve captured preppy-chic without being stodgy and managed to keep prices reasonable in the process.

I was hooked before I even laid eyes on any of the clothes in person.  The pictures on their site have that joie de vivre of old J.Crew catalogs–remember those scenes of beautiful people doing everyday things, but looking so good doing them and seemingly having so much fun in the process?  Yeah, well “Canvas” has harnessed that spirit successfully and developed a great set of preppy basics to fill out any wardrobe…

Sigh…don’t they look like they’re having a blast?

Sequins, stripes and everything nice…
