loafers are cool

Is there a chicer (or easier) fall ensemble than a white men’s oxford, cropped dark denim jeans and classic loafers? I think not. My style icons Grace Kelly, Charlotte Casiraghi, Jane Birkin and the lot seem to agree. This season, I’ll be wearing a pair of brandless vintage black leather loafers, though ideally I’d be wearing these. As the photos show, they don't go out of style. Loafers are cool, mais no?

P.S. The lone man in the roundup? Francis Ford Coppola!


and the bride wore lavender

Who says that the bride has to wear white? Sofia Coppola, who married long-time boyfriend Thomas Mars in Italy on August 27, looked dazzling in her custom lavender Alaïa gown (...I wonder if she'll ever wear this frock again!). But in my opinion, it was one-year-old Cosima and four-year-old Romy who took the cake. Aren’t their matching white frocks adorable? After listening to an archived NPR interview between Frances Ford + five-year-old Sofia the other day, one can only wonder what her baby self would have to say about this :)
