After a sunny carefree weekend in the Hamptons I’m off to hop on the Jitney and return to the hustle and bustle of the city. Most of you know me as the “silver-haired girl on the go,” and nowhere is that truer than when I’m in the city. Even I find it to be a bit of a challenge to look pulled together when I’m going from Ubers, to the subway or walking endless city blocks in 90 degree heat. And this time of year… when the fashion powers that be throw around the term “hottest trend”… 

I want to run for the hills.

Darlings, do you remember the days of laying out in the summer sun in your string bikini, covering every inch of exposed skin with a thick coating of suntan oil? In those days it was all about the tan. The only sunblock around was zinc oxide, and If you weren’t a lifeguard, chances are you never used the stuff.

Ahh Capri…with its azure shores, captivating beauty and Italian charm, it’s no wonder that it has long been a playground for the rich and famous. Capri has a free-spirited vibe that exudes a leisurely glamour, much like myself. In the 60’s and early 70’s, it was the place to be for the international jet-set.

In the past few weeks a curious thing was happening on my instagram feed.

It’s a red carpet fashion lovers dream come true.

I was recently asked if I could pick one fashion person to have dinner with, who would it be? Why, Isaac Mizrahi of course. I can’t think of a fashion designer or entertainer who makes me happier than Isaac. From designing clothes to singing cabaret, Isaac’s approach to all things is exuberant. I have always found him to be a delight.

I was immediately drawn to his clothes when his designs began appearing in fashion magazines in the late ’80’s.

Darlings, you must recall that famous scene in Woody Allen’s romantic comedy, Annie Hall, when we are first introduced to Diane Keaton’s iconic style. During her first meeting with Allen’s character, Alvy, after playing a doubles tennis match, we see Keaton’s character, Annie, with all of her self-deprecating charm and warmth, in the ensemble that sparked the imagination of women and what they wanted to wear.

We’ve all been told, time and again, if you’re a woman of a certain age you must never, ever, wear a mini. Do you remember the last time you wore a mini? At the height of my mini wearing days, The Cars album played on the turntable as I doused myself in Jovan Musk, strapped on my Maud Frizon heels and headed over to Studio 54 to dance the night away.

Yes Darlings, it was that long ago.

Ahhh… Chanel. Music to any girl’s ears. Earlier this month when I heard Chanel had presented a collection inspired by Ancient Egypt, I googled right away to see it for myself.

Karl Lagerfeld, designer and creative director extraordinaire, did not disappoint.

Darlings, do you recall the ensemble I’m wearing? This look is from one of those iconic Ralph Lauren ads that appeared in every fashion magazine in 1981. The ads were beautifully shot by legendary photographer, Bruce Weber, and featured the gorgeous model, Clotilde, wearing the Santa Fe Collection. The looks were inspired by Navajo prints and southwestern American classics. 

Oh, those ads captured my fashion heart.

Darlings, It’s that time of year when ghosts, goblins and ghouls are scurrying about, looking for some tasty treats. With Halloween nearing and that crisp chill in the air, it gets me thinking about fashions that warm up my senses.

I want cozy coats, in rich colors, with velvety textures, and shoes and accessories in pops of color as bright as the autumn leaves. Continue Reading
