When I got my first AOL account at 14, I considered "GreenEyedMonster." That was because of my eye color, but looking at the Nicole Farhi Autumn/Winter in London, I wish I had it: the clawing envy would be apt.

Although she's London-based (and an honorary CBE), Farhi's aesthetic is quintessentially French. Regardez: a Coco-ish marin's shirt!

In the world in which designers for some reason let me pick a collection to own (in this world I can also pull off anything and have a social life that calls for a lot of outfits, and not just for dancing around in front of the mirror), this line would be duking it out with Oscar de la Renta's!

While we're at it, Barbara Pym is alive and she comes too. Oh, did I mention I can fly? And I have a lot of free time for this, because my husband, who is sometimes Stephen Pastel and sometimes Reuven Malter from The Chosen, is out of town.

Okay, maybe not this - but in the fantasy world I could pull it off if I wanted!

The woman, the legend, the curls.

Does this skew a teensy bit Jacylyn Smith for KMart to anyone else? I'd have to see it in person to appreciate the details, I'm sure, but there's something... maybe not Kmart, but maybe Sears going on in a lot of these.
