At A Glance, May

A gathering of what I find notable for the month.

Landslide by Susan Conley
Straw bags are a big summer trend. This one above, by M. Gemi, is handsome and well priced.
HALSTON, The Netflix Biopic. The rise and fall of the mononymous designer. Watch it for the clothing, the set design, the locations and much more.
Bucket hats are another huge trend for the summer.

Estel Eyelash Dye. Disclaimer! This is not for everyone, but, if you are deft at dangerous beauty treatments at home, you can dye your own eyelashes. The writing on the tube and bottle are in a language I do not recognize, but the package does come with English instructions. I repeat, this is not for everyone and could be very dangerous. That said, this is the best eyelash dye I have ever used.

Michael Kors Collection Langley Sandal.
Jicama Wraps from Trader Joes’s.

At A Glance, March

A gathering of what I find notable for the month.

I am a Stanley Tucci fan and I have never been to Italy. Searching For Italy combines a visit with both.
I have a thing for leather tooling spectator shoes and tassels. Though, I can’t wear heels this high. These are by Ralph Lauren.
If you see me eating in my car, this is what I am probably eating. Whole Foods.
4th Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach, April 8, 2021 – May 9, 2021
Sailor pants or jeans. These are Ann Taylor.
Get a colonoscopy. March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Everyone hates the process but early detection is everything.
I know the pre- broken in sneaker is a thing. It’s not for me. A fresh white leather sneaker by Superga.
I haven’t had a professional mani/pedi in over a year so if I am going to do polish at all, this is a great find. Essie Gel Couture.
I eat meat infrequently, but when I do, it’s likely a bolognese sauce. Recipe by Marcella Hazan featured in the New York Times.
These have been on my radar for awhile. FRAME
