    The bag is vintage Dooney and Bourke. I’m quite sure because I have one in beige myself.

    Hi guys, I love her bag. Any idea who it’s by and where can I get it?

    Amazing look, the shoes, bow tie & bag really turn it into something special :)

    She’d got it going on, and I bet she didn’t even think about those complementing shades.
    And everybody loves a smile.

    Fred—I think you’re in love with Cassandra. Ha! This is a cute look, though.

    That’s one of my favorite quotes from Mr. J.

    Kelsey—You and so many others want to know where to pick these repp tie wrap bracelets up.  I’ll be writing about that very soon.

    Hi! I have a question, and didn’t know where else to post it, so I figured you would check this.
    You know those “ribbon-like” bracelets, they kind of look like ties/belts. Where might I find one. I really like them and haven’t been able to find them anywhere.
    I thought you might know.
    Thanks!

    Where do you find these quotes? They are so on the mark. Excellent.

  • Grant K. Gibson

    Style  

    In 2007, Grant K. Gibson, an interior designer, offered his future landlord a deal; in exchange for two months’ free rent ($3,000), he would renovate his San Francisco apartment. The landlord agreed, and Mr. Gibson went to work. He spent weeks staining the hardwood floors walnut, retiling the bathroom floor, painting the walls and scouring flea markets “to create a timeless, neutral palette that I could layer furniture onto,” he says. The grand reveal isn’t too far off from a Ralph Lauren Home showroom on the Upper West Side. The details are meticulous (he and I both share an affinity for trophy cups). “I’ve created a space that I just love,” says Mr. Gibson. “When I do find the right place to buy, I’ll want to do all of the same things that I did here” (read the full article at The New York Times).

    yep, looks like it’s plucked right out of the NYC or Chicago Ralph Lauren stores. Wish i had the money to hit a home run like that.

    The model has captured the Italian uneven tie blade thing ...

    The lime green chinos (with a flash of ankle) and RL loafers make this a decadent look.

    I love this style, it is classic, the combinations epitomise all that is desirable about this look, and the shirt is subtle

    He pulls this off nice! The green leaves on the ground has a nice touch to the photo. Was that done on purpose?

  • Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson

    Culture  

    Image via This Recording

    I won’t let too many words get in the way of this photograph, reminiscent of an era when Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis gracefully sauntered around in her friend Lilly’s signature shift dresses; however, I feel compelled to urge you ladies to rediscover sexiness in the company of dignity. Emma Watson is sexy. Really sexy. She’s also a lady. And although she spent her adolescence in an industry famous for mangling child stars into narcissistic train wrecks, she’s successfully managed to groom her career, net worth and public image without a single stroke of a wand.

    Fred…keep chasing your dreams.  You’re onto something and after all you have been through I believe even though I don’t know you personally that you are at a place of humility to be blessed with all you have imagined.  That’s all…I like to encourage no matter “vested” or not.  After all words can lift up or damage for a lifetime.  And man I make mistakes, but i really prefer the former.  It’s better for the heart.  Keep it up Fred!


    Michael left a comment on 1/20/2010 at 7:35 PM:

    Reading and loving the comments on this page. 

    I love Emma, and this photo.  She is amazing.


    julie left a comment on 1/20/2010 at 7:15 PM:

    whoa, good stuff here!  i am certainly not an expert on fashion or certainly this lifestyle, but as a woman, i am quite frankly thrilled with fred’s suggestion.  truthfully, i have loved all of his posts of women with this style of clothing.  i especially love the fact that he is suggesting that we don’t have to bare it all for a man to find us sexy!  perhaps because i am a very modest person and have always been…and happen to have been married for almost 4 years to a man who shares fred’s opinion.  that doesn’t mean i am not feminine…in fact there is nothing more i like than feeling feminine around my husband.  i applaud you fred for offering such great examples of this and personally feel a bit suffocated as i walk around malls to find things getting shorter, smaller, frillier, etc.  i HATE the way a lot of fashion is going!

    just my opinion, from a very normal, non ivy league, california state school going girl!

    I don’t know but, for some reason, sharing this on Facebook is providing a link that leads to a 404 Error. Anyway, gorgeous picture. Definitely nice to see a classy, modest photo of an actress in my age bracket.

    I absolutely love the colors in this shot. It reminds of sherbet and all the colors for spring 2010.
    On Ms. Watson, men and ladies both like her, a quality rarely found in a celebrity, because she is dignified; a quiet dignity in the way she dresses (modestly) and the manner in which carries herself (gracefully).


    Michael left a comment on 1/18/2010 at 1:37 PM:

    Love the consistancy in this blog, I literally check it every day. The fact that you featured my crush and soon to be wife only sweetens the pot!

    On a side note, I saw Vampire Weekend at the United Palace Theatre last night and would urge all of you to see them asap. The theatre itself had unrivaled history and charm. They played everysong from their debut except “Bryn” and all from the new except “I think ur a Contra”. The show is non-stop energy, perfectly blending our favorites with our soon to be favorites. They even had some orchestral players with them, it suffices to say I just purchased my tickets to see them in April.

    Dare I say her ability to deftly navigate the minefield that accompanies childhood fame is a result of an English public school education.

    Looks like she’s heading to the ivy league for her college education, a perfect finish!


    Kevin Cooke left a comment on 1/18/2010 at 10:38 AM:

    Amazing Fred!  And so true, she is one of the most beautiful girls in industry right now.  Just more proof that modesty is one of the most sexy qualities a girl can bring to the table.
