NYFW is officially underway and as everyone in the city (or should I say Lincoln Center) is searching for the latest definition of style and elegance, this quote I saw in a 1stdibs feature with Carolina Herrera (role model!) really rang true. It’s a nice reminder about what we are building with every new wardrobe addition, every book we read with new facts and perspectives, every meal we cook on our own, how we put together our spaces and why we started this blog.. Naturally, Carolina says it much better. Our version of elegance (because we hope that’s what we are) may just have a few more hairs out of place and a couple f-words dropped here and there. Hey, she didn’t call it perfection, just elegance: knowing yourself.
And here’s a recent favorite of the grande dame herself, in her signature white blouse, the epitome of the E word itself.
