My mind sometimes flickers to childhood memories of my father picking out his workwear in the mornings. It’s funny: I frequently talk about how my mother’s style affected my relationship with fashion, but in a way so did my father’s. As a chief executive officer, he has always had a closet chalk-full of tailored suits […]

Velvet Trimmings for Christmas

Velvet? For Christmas? Groundbreaking. Steadfast Krischic readers will know that I devotedly deck in the luxe fabric during this time of year (2017, 2018 and 2018 again!), but only recently did I discover the silk thread’s seductive powers on me. The key is in the connotation: during the Renaissance period specifically, wearing velvet was an […]

Chanel commissioned dresses and suits to be fashioned in the fabric from a Scottish factory which gave the look a more traditional Scottish countryside aesthetic, according to Elle. Since then, […]

Castles and Clothes: How To Dress for Hearst Castle

California has its own archaic gems to share—one need only seek the old-world magic to find it.
