At A Glance, September

What I find notable for the month.

& Other Stories. As someone who loves to layer, I don’t always reach for a blazer. This wool jacket has great styling potential as well as being great looking on its own.
The Barbizon. Paulina Bren’s account of the all women residential hotel in NYC. I am listening to this book before bed so it’s soft enough to not be overly stimulating while still being a fascinating account of the iconic hotel that existed in NYC from 1928 until the 2000’s. Stories with of the many famous and accomplished women (noted: mostly white and privileged ones) are told and a historical context of the time period-with a strong focus on mid century NYC.
At a glance September. What I find notable for the month.
Banana Republic. I saw this skirt in person and had to touch it. I haven’t tried it on but I love the movement. I see it styled with a black turtle neck and tall boots. I would play down any kind of costume-y quality this skirt may infer and keep the styling minimal.
Alexander McQueen. I am having a thing for double belts. Styling them over a blazer or a longer cardigan would be chic.
Burberry. I love this “trench” strap heel. I wish it had a block heel as I would love it even more.
Cinq A Sept. I love a pinafore front on a dress or jumpsuit. I would layer a shirt under it and a blazer or bomber jacket over this dress. I definitely would wear it with lug sole boots to balance the feminine with a bit of masculine. Or, better yet, a mid calf boot.
Emilia Wickstead. Another pinafore dress I think it good looking.
All Saints. This belt would look great over a blazer or coats or threaded through a slouched pair of jeans. I especially love that the eyelet studs are beveled.
La Double J Sweater. Look for side tie sweaters to gain popularity. Side tie sweaters allow more layering underpinnings to show. They create more interest with longer hemlines and look great with longer proportions.
