One of my favorite looks for spring/ summer is a gauzy trapeze dress with a breezy linen or silk scarf. Add wedges or espadrilles for a daytime look and throw on a pair of pumps to dress it up for dinner out.

Ps- that lamp is most definitely from Land of Nod. However, I don’t think that just because it comes from a kiddie site means that it should be dedicated to living in an adolescent space. Throw that bad boy on a console table in an entry way for a super sleek look.

I took note of many things she said or did over the years that I knew her. She was a marvelous teacher, in a way; few people, outside of a French couture salon or a Hollywood costume shop, knew as many practical dressmaker tricks as she did, illusions that bolstered your confidence as they revealed (to me) fundamental lessons about dressing.

Even if a woman didn’t relate to L’Wren’s style (and it was a very specific style, based on her fairly old-fashioned aesthetic), I used to think she would have an empire if she could talk one-on-one with her customers. That’s no doubt a reason so many actresses stuck with L’Wren: Nicole Kidman, Ellen Barkin, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianne Moore, Christina Hendricks. She was so well informed and prepared, and at the same time so funny and offhand about the fuss, that you naturally trusted her.
