For a few years now, bloggers have been writing about how fashion editors don’t exactly wear their coats; rather, these slaves to fashion eschew sleeves, draping said coat over their shoulders. Jenna Lyons, style muse, creative director of J.Crew, she of the most blogged brownstone, has certainly embraced the look of late. Wearing her coat over her shoulders is almost as much a signature style as her nerdy black glasses. Let’s see how Lyons does it, 15 times.

I’ve been thinking about the whole ’90s style lately. One, because we just went to an ’80s party last month (here’s me as “Material Girl/Like a Virgin”), so it’s time to start planning for next summer’s ’90s fete. I already bought an awesome Kurt Cobain T-shirt at Forever 21 when I was sourcing ’80s stuff.

Reminds me of:
Christy Turlington & Linda Evangelista
in this Chanel print ad from the ’90s.
As for Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, and grunge,
I’ll save that for another day.

This moody blue portrait of Sofia Coppola, has the same hazy effect as the foggy day here on the Outer Cape. I am hoping to see The Bling Ring soon. Mostly though, I just love her style. (Not sure who took the photo or where it appeared. When I Google, all that come up are celeb foot fetish sites. I’m not kidding.)
