The Morning After

Miu Miu bag.
Vintage headpiece & Rowes coat. Betsey Johnson tights. Chloé boots.
Hope everyone had a magnanimous holiday! Best gift ever: Miu Miu's quilted leather bag. Its flap-top has a jewel-encrusted turn-lock closure & dangles from a faceted-jeweled chain (which incidentally is removable & looks darling as a necklace or belt). This present is particularly prescient as I was looking for a long strapped medium-sized purse: it fits in between my Chanel '2.55' & 'Maxi' bags. Worn with a vintage Rowes wool coat discovered this weekend in a CT shop while visiting family; 'Made in England' is scripted across its label & I imagine some well-bred girl wore it from her ancestral home to one of the posh boarding schools around here, where it was lost in time for about 50 years. My cheerful mustard double-breasted princess pea coat is a slice of serendipity with last year's chocolate suede thigh-high Chloé boots (beloved for their corseted back & how they slip on with the requisite amount of slouch).
