Fall Must-Haves: The Pleated Pant

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

And, more specifically, American Apparel's high-waist pleated pant with a nicely tapered leg. Don't shudder! I first spotted them on my friend Holly (in the khaki form -- very Annie Hall) and eventually decided I needed a gray wool pair for myself. Which I love and expect to wear 20 billion times through the winter.

A Tribute: Isabella Blow

Friday, September 10, 2010

I once had the chance to meet the legendary fashion editor Isabella Blow at India Fashion Week five or six years ago. She was quite sad and depressed at that point — and very open about discussing it — but also extremely kind and friendly. I remember walking behind her to a show, and helping her fix a button on the back of her dress that had come undone. She was very grateful about it, and from that point on, made a point to smile at me whenever we saw each other across the runway.

On Monday, a new homage to the late, great editor comes out in book form. The team over at Thames & Hudson were nice enough to send along some snippets. It is hard not to love fashion without also loving Isabella and her daring, unconventional, creative wardrobe choices. Truly an original who is very very missed.

Cutest. Shoes. Ever! (And how to get them)

Thursday, September 09, 2010

While killing time in Houston this week, I ended up in Dillard's and my feet ended up in the cutest shoes ever — the Hughs pump by Gianni Bini. Seriously, people just come out of the woodwork to compliment these shoes -- at work, in restaurants, in the mall. And only $90! Consider yourselves tipped off.
