I'm sure I'm not the only vintage lover to swoon over this editorial in the November issue of Vogue. Grace Coddington brought the magic as usual, creating the perfect escape from the cold with Patrick Demarchelier's painterly photography. This is how I imagine the women of Edith Wharton's world spending the summer.
Has anyone been to The Mount, the home that Wharton designed in Massachusetts? It has been on my need-to-visit list for years. The recent demolition of the Carnegie Hall Tower apartments and the house that inspired The Great Gatsby has prompted me to be more active in supporting and protecting historical architecture.
