just a quick post to say...

I think Victoria Beckham looks so fabulous with her new super-short haircut! I realize she's been very much over-exposed, especially in the UK, but I think she's great -- whether you like her style or not, she certainly takes risks, and she has a sense of humour about herself which is vital.

wool blazer

I saw the Gap ads featuring Georgina Chapman for this light grey wool blazer and I really liked it -- but wasn't sure if, outside of a suit, it would be too bulky to wear on its own. Then the picture below, from Garance Doré, of a similar blazer by Marni, calmed any doubts I may have had.

in the theme of events in the hamptons...

I really like the re-design of style.com; it makes everything look so enticing whereas before it was hard to find things and generally a bit dull. Anyway I was looking at a new section on the NY Scene, and found some great photos from a Rufus Wainwright concert in the Hamptons this past week.
I really loved Amanda Hearst's bright Klein-blue flouncy dress, as well as her simple and clean hair and makeup -- a perfect Hamptons look.

Then of course was the incomparable Daphne Guiness, who isn't very well known here yet, but hopefully will be seen a lot more in the near future. This outfit breaks all the rules of age-appropriate dressing, and yet instead of looking off she looks absolutely ageless. Quite an inspiration, no?

I loved the bold black-and white print of this dress, the practicality of her flats, and her cute short hairdo and red lipstick which add to the quirky feel of her whole look.

Finally, this last was a very simple outfit, but brightly vibrant, and the clever accessories and details make it something special. An easy way to transition from the beach to an event.

Can summer go on a little longer, please?

white party

I've been noticing recently that almost everything I buy these days is white -- which I guess I should stop since summer is just about over! But on Monday's episode of Gossip Girl, white had its last hurrah at the famous White Party in the Hamptons, and both Blair and Serena had pretty stunning dresses that I thought were worth posting. Blair's short tiered dress was very form-fitting and appropriately young-looking, and Serena's grecian draped dress was much more dramatic, but looked perfect on her character, especially with long sparkly chains that wove through her hair and then dangled down her neck.
