WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Are you as baffled as I am that this is actually the last week of winter? Where did it all go? It sort of whisked by, barely noticed here on the East Coast with its unseasonably warm temperatures. I barely got to wear my new Tom Ford navy cashmere plaid overcoat! Oh well, time to move forward – and depending on how this week and the beginning of spring unfolds, perhaps opportunities will present themselves to wear a few more of my winter beauties.

As many of our WIJW fans must know by now, I’m all about what is appropriate to the weather versus antiquated rules regarding what should and should not be warn on such and such a date. Just because spring is pending does not mean that I have to break out the pastels — I mean, an unexpected snow storm might show up (and when you live around here, you know that is always a strong possibility)!

February/March is typically when I begin to think about my spring/summer wardrobe, and what I may want to add to enhance my sartorial splendor. This year, I’m leaning toward turquoise, pale blue, and lime green, and I’m already obsessing over a few exceptional pieces. Hopefully they will come my way! This is also a time when I’m in serious need of a tropical getaway! Palm Beach here we come! We’re heading down to catch up with clients and friends from March 16-21 and the Colony Palm Beach will provide for a lovely base of operations!

Celebrating the last days of winter, I’m sporting a Ralph Lauren Purple Label cashmere/wool tartan jacket, Tom Ford era Gucci ivory cashmere turtleneck sweater, Uniqlo red down vest, Tom Ford charcoal wool flannel pants. Max Verre red leather tasseled loafers, Sermonetta red leather gloves, vintage Rolex, Charvet black silk pocket square, Tom Ford Marco sunglasses, Tom Ford Bronzing Gel for a bit of a sun kissed glow, and my fragrance is Creed Royal Oud.

    I am overdue for a little Palm Beach jaunt- rather excited!

    My Darling La Contessa,

    If you come to New York City it would be my great pleasure and honor to dine with you!

    As well as endless photo opps- we can feature each other on our blogs- and have some wonderful iconic/epic New York photos taken! Like the ones you did in Paris – now what will we wear???

    I can’t wait – keep me posted – Spring in NYC is sublime!

    Thank You- trying to wear some of my Fall/Winter favs whilst it is still Winter here!

    Much Love and All My Best

    Darling Penelope Bianchi,

    We really had almost no winter here – 2 snow storms and finito!

    You were blessed with the mildest weather whilst you were here last!

    Mr McB has sent a few pieces that did not sell to Lyford- sure they will be snapped up immediately.

    We really are overdue for a Lyford visit- we will settle for Palm Beach – we are off tomorrow for 5 days.

    I would love to see your Fleur Cowles – she was so impossibly chic- Flair magazine etc and I loved her art!

    So happy you all are finally getting rain – they need to figure out a way to capture every drop of rain – like in Bermuda.

    Much Love

    My Darling Karena

    I am sure Mr McB would be thrilled to be featured- I emailed you – so let me know.

    All Best
