Last year, I really wanted a pair of brown corduroys, in fact, it might have been this exact style from Victoria Beckham, but they sold out before I could get my hands on my size. Now, I’m seriously contemplating them. Lately, I cannot get enough of CBK references (if you didn’t notice); I recently read a quote from a stylist who has much more fashion-forward style than I do who also said she was influenced by Carolyn a lot, because while Carolyn wore timeless designs, she also knew how to throw in some edgier pieces. I wouldn’t call this particular outfit edgy at all….but it’s still a favorite.
Victoria Beckham cords, $479; Les Specs sunglasses, $59; Falke turtleneck, $240; The Row loafers, $940; vintage Hermes Birkin, (shop similar here).
I am so enjoying your CBK posts. Don’t ever stop.
It is only in pictures of her that I can see the Birkin the way it was meant to be – in a neutral colour, casually worn. Here in Toronto, the quietly elegant Birkin has really taken a back seat. In this town, if someone spends that much they want you to *see* their outfit. Possibly even from space. We have the philanthropic women in bright colours with equally brightly coloured Birkins. Or the Kardashian influenced younger women with baby botox and very full lips wearing Skims or sweats with Yeezys and a Birkin. What I wouldn’t give to see a woman in ancient cashmere, shockingly good diamonds and carrying a love-worn old purse.

I agree with Liza about quiet elegance. Elegance does not shout. When I see women with head to toe logos and the like, I visualize $1000. bills pinned to their clothes.

Well said Denise and Liza!
Are you ever going to post more details about your Paris trip? I would love to hear your recommendations! xo
It seems to me that one could have these pants custom-made in case they sold out. (maybe even for less $? you guys tell me. )
