Mood: Style Is Eternal

Saint Laurent Le Smoking - Moody Mondays: Style Is Eternal Iconic Smoking Jacket Edit || Caviar & Catwalks

 

Ladies and gents, one of my favorite photographs of all time, Le Smoking by Helmut Newton. The above photograph has provided endless inspiration for me and it was only a matter of time before you saw a Moody Monday post centered around it. It’s no secret I love clean lines and tailored, classic pieces, so this iconic image of a sleek, strong woman in perfectly tailored suiting speaks very clearly to me. It’s something I strive for every day — looks that make me feel powerful, and strong yet still exudes a certain femininity, featuring pieces that are classic and can be reinvented and worn season after season.

So when Farfetch, one of my favorite online retailers, asked me to style a look around Saint Laurent’s iconic Smoking Jacket in honor of the new Yves Saint Laurent: Style Is Eternal Exhibition, I jumped at the chance. I talk a lot about classic pieces here and there’s really nothing that holds true to me more than YSL’s famous quote: “fashion fades, style is eternal”. AMEN. There’s nothing more classic than a sleek, tailored blazer — something every woman should have in her arsenal and an investment well worth every single penny. And in my opinion, no one does it better than Saint Laurent.

Get in the mood with my inspiration mood board below and then shop the look at the end of the post. Both looks feature the immaculate Smoking Jacket and will take you from day to night, season to season for years to come.

Happy Moody Monday 🙂

Styled: Cocoon Coats and Chanel

Photos by Bridgitte Sifton  It took a while, but I finally found the perfect cocoon coat to keep me warm through the rest of this winter. I picked this Just Female (a super affordable, minimalistic line out of Copenhagen that I just discovered) coat up at Need Supply (one of my faves) and have been wearing it…

Styled: Thigh-High Boots At The High

 Photos by Carlos Maldonado A quick post today, because my week is completely crazy! But just wanted to share this snap from a morning at The High, before the weather turned frigid and a coat was not yet necessary for outdoor survival. The thing to focus on here is the footwear: the Tony Bianco Jaspar…

Fall Essentials: Bucket Bags and Fall Fedoras

Photo by Carlos Maldonado Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have probably heard that bucket bags are the “it” bags the season. And for good reason! Roomy enough to carry all of your girl essentials yet small enough to keep you from looking like a bag lady, the bucket bag might just be…

New In: Zara Black Leather Lace Up Boots

  I’ve been looking for a replacement pair of black leather lace-up boots with just the right amount of hardware for ages. The pair I currently own has been a go-to for years and are so perfectly chunky-heeled, platformed and at this point, worn in, that I couldn’t even bear the thought of parting with…

New In: Current/Elliott Shredded Stiletto

  There aren’t many things that can compete with a great pair of jeans for me. Considering that I am very much a creature of comfort and spend at least four or five out of seven days a week in denim, I consider them very much a staple. And when I run across a wash and style…
