want of the day

I’ve never been one to collect autographs, but I have an extreme infatuation with Grace Kelly. I mean, who doesn’t? The above, according to the seller, is a page from a book of drawings by famous people (the title of which is unnamed). Both the flower sketch and the blue autograph are printed, but the red text was signed in ink. Wouldn't you love to frame this for your home? It’d surely be a fantastic conversation-starter!

off to california!

Darlings: I hope you had a blissful weekend! I’m jetting off to Los Angeles for a week - I’m beyond thrilled to get a bit of relief from humid Kansas City (where one need not iron their clothes as the humidity renders them wrinkle free in seconds). While in California, I plan to visit the new “Paris: Life & Luxury” exhibit at the Getty and hit up loads flea markets... but other than that, I’m free! I’ll be in the Silverlake area with lots of time to spare - drop me a line if you’re in the area :)

want of the day


Here’s what I need in my closet: Miu Miu’s “silk volant detail cocktail dress.” Isn’t it wonderful? It’d be perfect for a State Dinner at the White House or an evening at The Rainbow Room (that is, were it still open). I imagine that if Grace Kelly were a starlet today, she’d be all over this. As always, if anyone would like to donate this to me, I won’t protest :) 


charlotte casiraghi: equestrian chic

Charlotte Casiraghi is one of my ultimate style icons. That being said, I can’t believe that I am just now discovering these images from her December ’10 editorial French Elle. Isn’t she stunning?! The girl’s a dead ringer for her grandmother, HRH Princess Grace of Monaco. I’m obsessed with her equestrian-chic style - that crisp white button-up blouse is killing me! I think I need to start riding horses so I have an excuse to dress comme ça :)
