erin wasson

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that she’s a native Dallas girl, but we’re smitten with Erin Wasson. We especially love it when we get a behind-the-scenes look into the model’s life like this one from The Coveteur. Take a peek at her Los Angeles home – including some favorites from her closet. You can bet there’s a pair of cowboy boots (or two) in there.

When it comes to handbag shapes and styles, there’s truly nothing more versatile than a top-handle bag.  It’s such a feminine choice – and it’s roomy enough to carry all of your day-to-night essentials, too!

my two cents: brian bolke

Every once in a while I forget about the genius of Rei Kawakubo, the designer of Comme des Garçons. When you first go to the show, you are literally disturbed. When you see it in the showroom a few days later, you are scared. And then, six months later, it comes into the store, and it is chic and elegant and perfect. And THAT is what fashion is all about. A completely emotional response to dressing and being transported.

The fall collection arrived today, and it is simply beyond. Come see for yourself. And try not to be scared. It will pass…I promise!

We’re celebrating yesterday’s royal baby news by perusing one of our favorite Taschen tomes: Her Majesty. The book chronicles the Queen’s 60-plus years at the throne through stunning photographs – including some sourced straight from the Royal Archive. Not only are the images inside the book remarkable, but the cover makes for a pretty addition to any coffee table.

Besides the arrival of new sweaters and coats, one thing we’re especially looking forward to this fall is the return of our favorite TV shows. At the top of that list? Homeland. The Showtime series stars Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, a bipolar CIA agent – and we can’t get enough of it. The show doesn’t return until mid-September, but we’re getting our Carrie Mathison-fix thanks to Vogue’s August issue. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the  editorial features Claire Danes alongside costar Damien Lewis in an espionage-themed shoot. We secretly wish Carrie would trade in her black suits for Victoria Beckham sheaths more often.
