Father’s day can be a smidgen tough for me. My father wasn’t there with me from a very young age, and I wonder sometimes, on this day in particular, what it would have been like – if he had been in my life. Luckily I had great brothers, surrogate dads and plenty of amazing role models in my life to fill that void. On that note, I’d like to extend a very happy Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads I know: Jack Bungart, John Bungart, Bert Tonkin, Theodore Ashford, Tim Ashford, Ted Ashford, Ken Rosen, Jeff Finegold, Peter Hastings, Mike Dean, Richard Crenna, John Strauss.
Back to fashion. Some of my favorite stores (brick & mortar and e-commerce) have begun slashing sale prices. There are so many awesome deals I didn’t make it past my first two stops – Elyse Walker & Net-a-Porter.
There’s no rhyme or reason to my selections, just items I adored when they were new, and some I’ve seen for the first time. At up to half off are there are quite a few steals here. Naturally, the investment pieces are my favs – Stella McCartney’s ‘Eloise’ silk-blend blazer (a classic with a twist, my favorite look), and Alexander McQueen’s draped crepe top – so elegant and chic. I’ve had my eye on the Band of Outsiders’ creme wrinkled leather top, and now it’s half off!!
Tomorrow I’m hitting Elyse & Walker in person. 15306 Antioch St, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272 310.230.8882
Now go spoil the father in your life!
