The Talented Mr. Ripley is certainly a favorite for the amazing acting and wardrobe. It’s constantly cited as a source of sartorial inspiration. Obviously, this makes it a perfect addition to the Date Night Series. I love everything Gwyneth Paltrow wears as Marge Sherwood in the film. She is elegant and classy, but cool and relaxed at the same time. The perfect balance for a woman. Check out Skip’s look here.

After a nice spring vacation, Skip of Alex Grant and I are back with our Date Night series! Being a Harvard man himself, Skip suggested we do The Social Network. Here is Mark’s slighted ex-girlfriend Erica Albright’s typical look. I updated it a little to make it more seasonless with a lighter weight jacket, but all in all it’s the perfect bookish look for a date at a low lit pub or a cafe. Head over to Alex Grant to see Skip’s look for Mark Zuckerberg.
I am so thrilled to see that one of my favorite artisans, Forestbound, was chosen by Anthropologie to create a limited edition collection for their new accessories shop in Bethesda, MD and at their shop in Union Square, NYC. Only 75 bags were created in two styles, a tote with leather shoulder straps and a duffle with handles and a shoulder strap. The bags were made from canvas salvaged from grain sacks dating from 1910 to 1940, giving the bags a sweet tinge of nostalgia and history. Personally, I can never say no to a great canvas bag. They are perfectly light, durable, and versatile with their simple cream color. If you can’t make it to either of the shops for this limited edition collection, don’t fret, Forestbound designer Alice Saunders has an Etsy shop as well and I have yet to come across a bag of her’s that I didn’t adore.
