So yes, some of these items probably look familiar. When I find pieces or combinations that work, I wear the heck out of them. This long linen cardigan is one of those. I bought it a couple of years ago, and it’s held up quite well.
But what I really wanted to show off was this new French Kande necklace (gifted) and bracelet. The necklace features African Opal beads, and a vintage french medallion in a cylinder shape imprinted to look like a train ticket. As with all of the French Kande medallions, this one is a mid-century French design. The chain necklace is from an earlier collection, and it layers nicely with the new one.
Being the coffee hound that I am, I knew I HAD to have a piece with this medallion!
And these peep-toe booties are a new fave…SO comfortable!
BTW, I keep forgetting to mention…
If you have not yet seen Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart, it’s available on Netflix and really worth watching. Binoche plays an actress who’s coming to terms with aging, not so much in the context of whether she’s still attractive but whether she’s still relevant. It’s no longer a given that she’ll be able to get the kind of roles she wants, and she’s grappling with her (reluctantly) evolving sense of self. The story also deals with the modern concept of “celebrity,” and how it plays into perceptions of relevance. I don’t want to spill too much, but there’s an interesting parallel arc between the characters in this story and characters in a play she’s rehearsing. Some beautiful scenery, and dryly funny bits. There’s even a short cameo by Caroline de Maigret.
If you’ve celebrating Easter, I hope you have a wonderful day. Bon weekend!
