A visit from the mix mistress
My dear friend Elise, who is currently in town from LA, has a fantastic sense of style: she has never met a bold print she didn’t want to pair with a bolder one, and her approach to color is fearless. I always look forward to seeing how she’s going to put herself together, and when we met up yesterday for lunch at Russ & Daughters, she did not disappoint. For starters, she was wearing a red and white striped tee, which in the wardrobe vocabulary of Elise, practically qualifies as a solid.
And then one of those floral print skirts that flirt with—but stop just short of—being altogether too much.
The fact that Elise is 5’10” is not something that keeps her from wearing heels when the mood strikes her. But we are friends from Lucky days, and express our affection for one another by shopping together, which we did after dining. So today she wore flats, the better with which to make tracks.
And then she was carrying this altogether too cute tote, with which I am fully obsessed.
