Good morning, Thursday. Hot as f and busy as f in NYC so I'll make this brief.
With the return of the 90s supermodel vibe in full swing (Amber, Helena, Kate, whoever else), I just have to say that despite my whirling dervish moment I'm having in the city with work, I have to take pause and celebrate Ms. Amber Valletta's story in the September issue of Vogue.
As women on the verge and wondering what (not) to wear, I give you these looks. Because they are perfect.
They are cool. Transcendent. Ageless. And overall- perfect. Just like Amber. What a beauty. It's crazy.
I love the fitted black dress with an oxford to keep it from veering too va va voom.
I love (and I do mean love) the black suit and sneakers with a slick of red lip.
I love the leather slouch of this shirtdress.
I love the rock and roll vibe of denim mixed with trench.
The khaki suit says do not, and I mean, do not fuck with me as I transition from Summer to Fall in the best of ways.
And maybe I'm not the only girl in town who has lusted after a Chanel jacket for most of her life. Perfection.
A camel coat? Yes. A faux fur coat too? Certainly. Why not throw in a Gucci mule. Why not?
And of course, an exceptional means business but ready to party plaid blazer with jeans. Strong.
These are all looks women of all ages can wear, and I adore them all. This is what I mean when I say I'm drawn to classic vs. preppy clothes. There is nowhere you could not go in these looks. Truly what more could you want? For me, it would be nice to have a few prints thrown in for good measure, but I'd be pretty psyched to make this my Fall wardrobe.
So as you're assessing your wardrobe, think of pieces like these as the capsule of your collection. And lest you think I'm bad and bougie, know there are a million ways to get these looks for way less. So get to googling. Also lest you think these looks are just for the skinny minnies, I beg to differ. I think women of all sizes could rock the hell out of these looks. Oh and the Rolex at the top of this post? Sure. Gimme that too.
Incidentally, photographed (Zoë Ghertner) and styled (Camilla Nickerson) by women. Naturally. More of that, please. No tricks here, folks. Just great clothes and a fabulous woman. Bonus point for only featuring shoes made for walking, living, and loving. Let's hear it for comfort.
