Yesterday I was a modern-classic gal. It was a busy and warm day at Fashion Week, which meant that a simple look combining crisp white cotton and stretchy skinny trousers was in order. We walked close to 90 blocks at a fast pace during the day, so a form fitting frock or skirt was not going to work. 

I bust out my new Anne Fontaine shirt for the occasion. It has a self-colour, textured stripe, mother of pearl buttons, an oversized collar and stitched down French cuffs. I’m a white shirt gal through and through so this shirt is already a wardrobe favourite. It’s 100% cotton so it kept me cool and refreshed all day. Surprisingly, it didn’t crease too badly either.

Adding piles of vintage pearls was the way to go here, thereby adding more white texture to the top half of the outfit. My feet were really happy in my animal print booties the day before, so back on they went with this outfit. (This was Greg’s suggestion and I appreciate his stylish eye). Ms. Valentino added her incomparable magic.

The best part of the day was meeting with top New York Fashion Stylist Kendall Farr. I am a huge fan of her work and books, “The Pocket Stylist” and “Style Evolution”. Kendall is even more delightful, humourous and lovely in person, and she was very complimentary of YLF. We chatted up a storm about dogs, the shows, and the fashion industry. We also shared our love for flat shoes, Hong Kong, H&M, Zara, soft dressing, and the return of the midi skirt. Kendall and I laughed a great deal and it was a pleasure spending time with her. And she rocks those Geek Chic specs like nobody’s business!
