What inspired this outfit?
Classic starlets (hello Brigitte Bardot, Jean Seberg, Audrey Hepburn and Edie Sedgwick) have inspired my love affair with stripes. I think I must own at least a dozen striped shirts and this has become my go-to look. I am probably destined to be a jailbird.
Tell me about one of the items you are wearing.
My watch was a gift from someone who traveled often, and it allowed me to keep track of the time in both of our time zones. Sometimes I change the black dial to wherever I want to be in the world.
What is the best book to read in this outfit?
This outfit makes me feel as if I should be in Paris, and A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway makes me feel the same way. Hemingway depicts his life in Paris so beautifully; I think if I were to jump into the pages in this outfit I would feel right at home.
What style icon would wear this outfit?
I think Brigitte Bardot would approve of my stripes and bow! She may have even had the same iPhone case if they had been invented in the ’60s—as she once said, “I really am a cat transformed into a woman: I purr, I scratch, and sometimes I bite.”
