2012 was the year I finally started reading Joan Didion, which makes me late to the party, I know. I’d put off reading her stuff for ages, but once I read Slouching Towards Bethlehem I couldn’t stop. I read a couple of her novels, and then I read The White Album and came across that old packing list of hers that’s been blogged and pinned and tumbled so many times that I could practically recite it by heart.
The Australian label Dress Up’s new collection is inspired by that same list and also by Didion’s minimalist ’70s style. Oversized sweaters, dresses you can slip on in a hurry, silk blouses that go with just about anything. It’s one of my favorite collections of the season.
