New Looks From J Crew

The long-awaited (well, maybe not, really) rollout for spring from J Crew is here.  I never get my hopes up anymore with this brand as it's been so disappointing the past few years and the quality has left the building.  But I like this look below.  The coat comes also in navy (navy is my new neutral and I adding it everywhere I can).  Love the bag too.  The entire look is classic, fresh, simple and paints a nice picture.

Here's is a similar bag.  This is a good investment piece that will last for years (we hope anyway).  It should not ever go out of style. I prefer the top handle (makes is more sophisticated).




This t-shirt is fun and comes in three colors. Love the simple piping.

I have been looking at these white jeans but am not sure I could pull off this look.  Love the look but tall is not in my gene pool.

Here's a cheaper version but not in white, but comes in many colors.  Again, not sure I could pull off this look.

This is the one item that I did fall in love with.  Love the color, the look, the length.  See it here.

I can't decide if these Liberty floral mules are really cute or really ugly.  I think you'd need to try them on see how they work but they are cute online.

I was not overwhelmed by this rollout. Seems like they are just recycling last year's clothes.  Oh well, I still long for the old J. Crew.

Pearl Power

There's nothing like the allure of pearls.  They never seem to age, why is that?  And what is old somehow becomes new again......

We've Lost a Bit More Style

The sad news of the passing of Lee Radziwill hit the papers yesterday.  She was such a stylish lady and sadly, these stylish ladies are leaving us with no replacements.  Think about it.  Who are our icons today?  Kim Kardashian?  Reality television show stars? Style? Grace?  Presence?  Anything at all worth even writing about?  What has happened?

Carolyn Bessette Kennedy had real style. I wish she was still here as I would have loved to watch her age with grace and dignity.

And no one would dispute Audrey Hepburn's style:

Maybe these women had stylists but on any given day, I bet these women looked stylish in jeans and tennis shoes.  It does help to be breathtakingly beautiful but still.....

C.Z. Guest is another lady who comes to mind.  She looked gorgeous even in old age.  Great style has no age.

And I would include Princess Diana on the list.  She had such great style.   I don't see that same style in the younger royals unfortunately. They try to copy her but it does not work. She's another one that would have been fun to watch age gracefully.


And we must pay tribute to Lee Radziwill who had as much style (or more) than her famous sister.

I am going to a banquet today. I am going to count the number of people who show up in jeans.  I'll wear a dress, making some effort to look like I'm going to a banquet, to show some level of respect for the organizers but it will be a lonely profile. We have lost our style.  America is indeed in a state of decline on every front.  On that happy note, have a great Sunday!

I'm a big fan of Poshmark and have bought and sold there for a few years. You can find some wonderful bargains on new and gently used clothing and accessories and it's a great way to sell your stuff that is sitting in your closet.  I love to look at Posh!   Here are some great vintage finds with an equestrian flair.  Need a Derby Dress but don't want to break the bank?  Posh is your place.
