How to find things in your carryall, which hot French woman is on two issues of Vogue during the same month, and which retailers are joining the store-within-a-store trend. These are what one calls White or Western problems. It’s kind of like those moments when you are hungry but don’t know what to eat, or have clothes but nothing to wear, or have a guy but know it’s time to cut him loose. Yes, those are lovely problems to have but they are not problems, they are decisions. And so we’re here to help you navigate these most awful dilemmas. Click love for your enjoyment.
Marion Cotillard is on the covers of both American and French Vogue during August. Que horror?! Really Anna, we expected more. Just because Carine Roitfeld is out doesn’t mean one doesn’t have to keep up the Conde-competition. True to nature, on the American cover she looks stiff, like someone you might imagine having tea with, and on the French issue you might just consider shagging women, if only to lie next to her in clean white bikini panties and a tank. How do the French do that – make everything sensual?
Topshop is coming to select Nordstom stores. It’s like a fashion O. I almost cannot speak but I must say we all know who is behind this – one man and one woman. The former quite plump and the brains, the latter, the original waif and always a trendsetter.
I got a new two-tone suede tote from Zara when I was in NYC last week. It’s perfect for fall for school. The issue is it has no pockets so what is a girl to do? Buy more bags. Mini bags. One for gum and keys. One for makeup. One for pens and highlighters. You get the deal. Head over to NYMag for their picks or just skip over to H&M and still be able to pay the electric bill.
A New York City budget fashion institution is soon to be history. Daffy’s is shutting its doors this year. WWD has the details.
