May you be surrounded by friends, family, fashion and fun! Until next week…xo (Note: No one at that table is actually eating.)
The designer Rachel Comey and her boyfriend, Sean Carmody, are two months away from having their first child, and the mom-to-be is bumping up her wardrobe accordingly. “The maternity trend seems to be not buying any clothes,” Comey says with a laugh. “That excludes the flea market, because it’s been fun to shop and try on shapes that I wouldn’t normally try on now that my body is so different.” Comey, who is known for her flirty prints and cool shoe designs, transformed a thrift shop cat suit into a pair of cool trousers. Day wear has become jumpsuits, overalls and stretchy knits, especially knit dresses paired with a sharp tailored blazer from Ellsworth for a more defined shape. “With my changing body and changing lifestyle, I am also changing my need for clothing to be practical for a woman’s body at any stage,” she says. We are looking forward to see how this new sensibility plays out in Comey’s next collection. Great expectations indeed.

I realize that this is a ton off stuff, but I felt that it worked best as a collection – indulge me. Amongst the must-have items this season are tuxedos and tailcoats for women (love). “Tailcoats can be worn with a long skirt and a lingerie-inspired top,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design. “Or over a feminine dress, or even with jeans and a T-shirt, glammed up with bright red high heels.” Ann-Sofie says that details are key; “Hair accessories add a special twist this winter. I love the sequin and feather accessories, and there’s also a lot of beautiful jewelry.” I would have to say that I wholeheartedly concur.
…because we all need a little peace now and then. I’m taking the week to tend to my family, my clients and myself. Hope yours is a lovely one!
When my client e mailed me about which skinny cargo pants to buy, I pointed her in the direction of the holy grail of skinny cargos – the J Brand Houlihans. Although she was digging the way they looked, (much like the rest of us) she wasn’t super stoked on the price, so I followed up with a link to the Blank pair.
During a subsequent shopping trip to Bloomie’s, we decided to hit the dressing room for a little ‘compare and contrast’ sesh, and it was unanimous; we both liked the Blank pair better. The fit, color and cut all trumped the Houlihans and for $152 less – who knew?! That being said, for the record? No one makes my ass look as good as J Brand. And therein lies the conundrum.
