Let’s dive right in, splurgiest item first: a Tsumori Chisato scarf featuring gold dots interdispersed with Chisato’s trademark kitty heads, and then, if you look real close…
…little golden lions playing rock star.
Black-on-black Swiss dots are surprisingly sophisticated.
There is something almost mesmerizing about the not-quite-neat stack of dots on this Marimekko teapot.
I can’t even count the ways I love this batshit genius Tsumori Chisato wallet.
So many fun places you can go with the striped top as your template. Today I think I’ll take one of each.
These all go pretty far out on a limb, but it’s almost the weekend and I’m feeling wild and dangerous. This rather elegant silk Raquel Allegra top is just about the most grown-up execution of tie dye I’ve ever seen, and don’t you think blue and green is a combo we don’t get nearly enough of?
I am fully prepared for some of you to mock me for this choice—and even more when I tell you it’s a dress. But when I look at it I see the most lounge-able summer piece ever, with excellent leggings-and-boots potential for fall.
Stripes of just about any other color here would be rather nuts here, but you almost can’t miss with red on leopard.
I like a nice, sophisticated floral: not anything that shows too much restraint, mind you, but one with a clean color palette and not all that much going on in the way of trickery. And I’ve never gone for anything too bright, or pink, or rosy, because that can skew so mumsy, or Lily Pulitzer, or upholstery-ish, or—not infrequently—all three. And yet! I have not been able to get this Tsumori Chisato top off my mind since I saw it at at Otte earlier this week: yes, it totally looks like there was an explosion at the flower shop, and yes, every shade is just a touch more lurid than one sees in nature. But possibly that’s not such a bad thing: maybe we all need room in our closets for at least one print that says f*** you to careful good taste (while still managing not to be in actual bad taste) and that makes you happy the minute you put it on.
This tank almost gets away with being quite straightforwardly pretty—but then those big wild yellow bursts come along and save it from such a pedestrian fate.
I know, a knife pleat seems awfully lady. But I’m convinced this would be the kind of easy, comfortable top a person might reach for all season long.
Hats off to J. Crew for bringing us the most Go Big or Go Home Liberty print maybe ever.
