Clockwise from Top.
White, Khaki, Chambray, Black. Think of your four most essential spices from your kitchen, but now they are the four colors for any well rounded spring wardrobe. Neutral wardrobe refresh: get yourself something easy to pair with your loud bags and your crazy shoes (see below).
Staud has this beautiful maxi dress, Lee Matthews has this midi dress, Tory Burch has this lovely belted polo dress, and Madewell released an oversized denim shirtdress.

Anna & Phil
With Raquel is wrapping up her Anna Wintour biography, and me having finished up Shoe Dog, the memoirs of Nike founder Phil Knight, we thought it was a good time to chat about them on this week’s podcast.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been running around filming Air, which tells the story of how Knight and Nike signed Michael Jordan back in the 80’s, and Anna is, well, still Anna. And, this viral photo of Knight’s zen-like bliss while Lebron James became the NBA’s all-time leading scorer was everywhere last week.
With all of that, we thought it would be fun to talk about the career arcs of these two legends.
One of our favorite shoes from the shows last year are finally hitting retailers. These Loewe foam pumps (called “Comic Chunky Vinyl Pumps”) are only $790, and possibly might even be comfortable? We are very intrigued. These look like something straight from Minnie Mouse’s closet, but in a good way.
We also linked to these Astro Boots last week, which are extremely ridiculous looking and yet everywhere on social media. For obvious reasons, they get a lot of attention when posted!
Our chair obsession continues! Except this is actually art. From Luam Melake’s artist statement:
