The OG: The Little Lady.

I used to do a series of posts on “The Little Lady” — elegant, Grace-Kelly-approved looks to which I aspired.  Lots of black and white, lots of tweed.  This is a look that never goes out of vogue my friends.

Nail the look with…

+This epic Chanel-esque tweed jacket from J. Crew ($198)!

+Lace and tweed dress (Giambattista Valli, on sale for $962 — how I’d love to own one of his pieces…)

+Aerin lace up ballet flats (on sale for $248!)

+Ferragamo clutch ($750).

+Pearl + metal statement necklace ($49).

+Ribbed fit-and-flare dress ($100).

+LOVE these bow-toed flats ($228)!!!

+Bow-front cardigan ($89).

+Gucci matelasse mini-bag ($1400).  Gucci is just NAILING it.

+Ferragamo embellished headband ($210 — loveeeee).  I like the idea of wearing this with an otherwise slightly tomboyish look, i.e., a striped button-down, distressed jeans, simple black flats.  There are also un-embellished styles, like this one ($160).

+Ribbon placket blouse (on sale for $62).




And for evening…

+Statement necklace ($65)!!!

+Marcus Lupfer dress ($312).

+The world’s most perfect evening clutch (Oscar, $1,390).

+Gianvito Rossis (on sale for $411).  Get the look for less with these epic lookalikes!

+I LOVE THIS OTS TOP ($395).  So couture.  Comes in lots of great colors, including this fun emerald green.

+KJL statement pearl necklace ($120).

+Paule Ka dress ($590).

+Velvet bow-toe sandals (look JUST like my fav Alexandre Birmans, but only $136!!)

+Add this embellished collar to any old dress/tee to instantly elevate things ($350).



  1. This post took my breath away! Love everything…. but I am also due in March! So I can’t get anything yet, although I do want to toss my entire pre-pregnancy wardrobe and start over completely fresh. Is that strange??

    Have been reading through all your posts like an absolute weirdo, but I simply can’t help myself– keep up your wonderful voice and impeccable taste please!! (Referred by Mackenzie)

    1. Ahh Bunny!! Thank you so much for the sweet note, and love that we’re twinning in this expecting-in-March experience. I feel the same way, actually. I pretty much want to buy all new errythang right now, and I want it to all be majorly sophisticated and ladylike…thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you’re looking for anything in particular! I love shopping challenges. xxxx

  2. You are killing it in this post! Love it ALL. Especially love that Oscar bow clutch. i have almost pulled the trigger but the combo of satin+ light color + grosgrain brings visions of red wine spills to mind. it is just dreamy though!
