Linda in White with Cat Eyes

I love the bell sleeves and the black belt.

My photographer friend Denton Taylor was able to get pictures of Linda Fargo, Senior Vice President of Bergdorf Goodman, on two different days during New York Fashion Week and it’s interesting to me that Linda wore pure white with no embellishment on both outings. I am sure it was because it was so humid and muggy here, it felt like mid-July! I love it paired with her cat-eye sunglasses, which I think must be the same ones as in this post, a strong red lip, and her perfect silver bob!

On a different day, a tailored all-white ensemble with cat-eye sunglasses and red lips. Perfection!

Oh to have hair like this.

I always feel a little skittish wearing white in NYC because it’s so dirty everywhere, but after a few spins around Brooklyn in my white jeans I relax and worry less about messing them up.

What do you think of an all-white look?

I love the all-white look, but it's not for me. There is a shop here dedicated to all white fashion pieces that's open in the summer only; I always marvel at it when I walk buy. I think the white dresses and knits it sells look great on the hyper-tanned, hyper fit locals. Not on pale, semi-flaccid folk like me!

I am with Kelly - all white ok, but only for tanned people in summer.
Here it looks like it's used to make a statement. And if I'm honest, I don't like it on the lady either. Only her red lips and the sun glasses add a little life.
But her sunglasses are great! :-)
Have a HAPPY Thursday :-) xo

Hi Kelly and Happyface, I get what you are saying for sure. I don't know that I would wear an all-white look either but I think it's great on Linda! I have to wonder if she chose it not only because it was so hot last week, but also because so many people wear crazy outfits at NYFW that she wanted to go in the completely opposite direction--white, no print, and very clean lines. Just a thought! XO, Jill

White is so hard for me--- I am so messy! But, she looks so fresh and crisp and chic!! I feel the red lippy is key. She would be washed out w/o it. It's the critical element of color in just the right place... Her face!

I'm sure Linda is driven from BG to FW in an air conditioned vehicle, then picked up again and driven back... where she has a rack of new clothes waiting for her. I doubt if she'll be sweating like the rest of us... lol

Jill said...

Hi Becky, I agree with you all the way, the red lip is crucial to Linda pulling off this look! XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Denton, ha, of course you are right, she is being driven around in an air-conditioned car! So maybe she went with white just to be completely different from everyone else? You are the person to tell us, was anyone else dressed in all white or was it just Linda?

Hi Jill, looking thru what I have on line, there are a few white dresses, but nothing so in-your-face totally high maintenance white. A lot of black and white mixes tho. This beautiful woman and her partner may prove to be the exception:

Hi Jill-You are so right-she is fabulous with that silver, white and red look. Such a strong and stylish silhouette! Glad to hear you are wearing the white in the city-so chic.
Happy Weekend!
xx, Heather

Hi Jill! I think she looks absolutely stunning in all white! I have a few white skirts; but no white jeans. Sometimes I go for all white, but never feel totally into it. xoxo

Jill said...

Hi again Denton, wow that lady is gorgeous! She looks great in her all-white too, with perfectly matching boyfriend at her side!

Jill said...

Hi Heather, I wore my white jeans again last night, it might be the final time this year, I like a darker look for fall. XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Paula! It's so great to hear from you. How have you been? I will head to your blog to find out! XO, Jill

She's always so chic! Love that silver bob. It's stylish and I would love to sport one someday, but you've got to have the right hair and grey...My sister-in-law is from Norway and her mother and many other ladies from Scandinavia have this look. They all look marvelous!
As for the white, I love it! I'm terrible though and can hardly get through a day without spilling or sitting on something. Got to have one of those emergency stain pens with you on white jean days!
