War is Poppycock

An old canvas cheapy from Shenzhen gets a make-over with buttons from the V&A.




Is this the most contrived trend since the half tuck?

The off-one-shoulder-only shirt at Joseph on Brompton Cross, London.

Even the Bijenkorf in Holland gets in on the act with an illustration of that ubiquitous Self Portrait dress.
For true off-the-shoulder nonchalance, google "kate moss yellow vintage dress".



My new favorite color: Spring Green

Every time I am there I wonder again how Holland is one of the most densely populated countries in the world when it is so beautifully empty everywhere I go. 

I could just google it, but in another installment of olden-days-wistfulness I refuse to. Have you ever sat around the table with great friends discussing things you don't know much about, your powers of deduction-slash-speculation heightened by a few bottles of wine? I remember many such nights spent with good friends in Fire Island some years ago, everyone contributing a whole bunch of nonsense until late in the night over much laughter and competitiveness.

Nowadays someone whips out an iphone at record speed. Not nearly as much fun. 

Spring green, so beautiful, right?

Not so fast, Pandora

Adidas sneakers and DVF dress

Pandora Sykes argues in The Sunday Times that the days of the sneaker are numbered. 

Pandora is wrong.

If you have ever walked around town in cushiony sneakers and regular clothes, marveling with every bouncy step that this is THE best fashion development ever, then you will no doubt agree with me that we are never ever going to give up sneakers.

We are still going to wear pretty heels out at night or for a festive lunch, but there's no way daytime sneakers are leaving my feet anytime soon.
