Tuesday trifecta

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 12.21.32 PM

A few big fat silver cuffs to balance out last week’s skinny gold ones. The geometric stripes here are so damn elegant.

Lace gets almost edgy when cast in metal.

There’s something very tough-chick minimal about this superheroine-style option.

Deal of the week

Screen Shot 2015-01-25 at 1.50.20 PM

All full-priced products at Piperlime (which has just announced it is closing) are 25% off through the end of the day. I like this button-down from Vince for being classic, but not basic.

And here’s a super-subtle colorblock take on that great obsession of mine, the Clare Vivier duffel bag.

I totally need a new pair of big long tall walkable boots, and these are so perfect and elegant and excellently unadorned.

Snowcopalypse is nigh

Dateline: NYC, 24 hours from now

I love a really good snowstorm; there are few things quite so awesome as watching Mother Nature bring even this most frenetic of cities to a screeching halt. Still, this one looks like it might skew scary and dangerous, and so I’m sending my thoughts to all of you in its path. Stay safe, indoors—70mph winds, people!—and dry. It is precisely for days like this that those evil geniuses at Amazon invented Instant Video. Meanwhile, I have done my version of storm preparedness: checked the flashlight, water, and candle supplies, and had a truly epic top-of-the-morning visit to the local Whole Foods for provisions (my necessities, you might be surprised to note, are simple and few: I greet any excuse to live off of PB & J for a few days as the stuff of dreams).

Meanwhile, does my Sammy look like a handsome devil or what in his new Barbour coat?
