Scanned from a 1963 issue of The New Yorker
Since our yard is completely iced over this morning, I’m guessing the answer to this question is: Jack Winter (whoever he may be–a relative of Peter Pan, perhaps?). Regardless, I’m really liking the earring-sculpture-thing she’s got going on.
Ahh, these shoes. A very exciting day at the thrift store indeed, only to turn out when I got home that they absolutely did not fit. Yet I refused to take them back–they were marked 8.5! They should have fit! Try a different stocking–a different time of day–anything! Sadly, still no. This great ’80s’ court-heel (which I wish I’d managed to photograph better) was not meant for me, and sometime in the fall I passed the pair along to my friend Tiffany, whose feet unfairly slipped right in. She was the happy recipient of these Bally boots as well, and she’s now one of my most enthusiastic shopping buddies. And though these may have been the first pair of vintage YSL heels to walk my way, happily they weren’t the last. I do wish they’d fit, though.
Morgan Sézalory’s new label Sézane launched online yesterday, and it’s really, really good. Like, everything-you-need-to-look-like-a-cool-French-girl-without-trying good. None of this is surprising, as fans of her previous venture Les Composantes, which closed in February, well know (I wish I’d grabbed this bag when I had the chance), but what’s especially exciting about Sézane is that Morgan is designing full time. This means we’ll be getting both seasonal collections and limited special editions, until the pieces sell out. Which means I’d better pick up a pair of the glitter-stripe booties, ASAP. And you probably should too.
