I went to my nephew’s wedding in Palm Springs recently. Mid-week, very small & ultra hip. It was cold and wet! Palm Springs! Can you believe it? I had to rethink my outfit quickly, and a mixture of old and new won out. I had picked up a Zara grey and black leopard pencil skirt last week and paired it with some black tights and a All Saints sweater. Sorry, I don’t have a pic of the whole outfit, but I’m not comfortable with selfies yet. I felt silly asking one of the 6 guests to just take a picture of me for my blog. I know, I know don’t worry, I’ll get better soon. Anyway…. my favorite piece of this outfit were my vintage booties! Vintage? well, I bought them new about 10 years ago at Loehmanns. That’s vintage right? After a good polishing from my husband, they were good as new. Pointy, ankle height with a stacked heel, they were perfect with the tight below the knee skirt and bulky sweater. P.S. I love you Let me know how many of you remember that campaign.

- SundayThis bag. OG Kate Spade circa 1998. This lovely bag means so much to me and represents what I think Kate wanted most to be remembered for. Joy. That’s exactly what I feel when I wear, or even look at it. My dearest Jim brought it home as a surprise from the Kate Spade boutique at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills. We had experienced some really difficult times but life was giving us back a beautiful chance and he marked the occasion with this sweet gift. New Years 1999 everyone was kinda freaked out about Y2K so we took the kids to San Francisco for a little getaway. We had such a great time in China Town and I found this adorable Good Luck Charm which I quickly attached and have worn it that way ever since. The memories attached to this bag are a blessing forever. Thank You, Kate Spade. May your memory be of a blessing. #katespadeoriginalSunday brunch vibes with @toryboutersky @jimtrow #anndemeulemeester #levis #hanesxkarlaOur Ocotillo is in bloom! #ocotillo
