Notes on a Classic with Coach

Jenny_7C5A9829_FINAL

I hear the word classic used plenty as a stylist.  I hear it used to describe the silhouette of a great dress, the style of a photo, or anything that is deemed to never go out of style.  It’s the antithesis of overly trendy.  The great balance of being modern and on trend in a way that is totally timeless.  That’s why these Coach Marah flats immediately jumped out at me.  Classic.  They feel like something that Audrey Hepburn would have worn for a day at work in the actor’s studio along with her skinny black ankle pants and coordinating cashmere sweater.  At the same time, the understated gold bow hardware and contrast piping makes them very current.

What better way to shoot a classic than in a classic?  I think most people would agree that this 1960 Porsche Speedster would certainly embody the word classic.  Shiny off-white exterior, red leather interior and it’s own understated gold hardware accents.  I don’t drive a manual, so Aaron was my gracious chauffeur for the day.  We cruised up and down the PCH, stopping for fish tacos and views of the Pacific before winding our way through the canyons at sunset.  It was a pretty dreamy Sunday and a memory I won’t soon forget!

I have adored each and every pair of Coach shoes that we have shot over these last 8 weeks.  There was the perfect barrel-heeled Ophelia pump that I took out for a spin on my bike in downtown LA, the ultra luxe knee-high Lilac riding boot that turned heads throughout Union Station, and the perfectly lived-in Honey ankle bootie that made it’s debut at the LA County Fair.  However, as I get further into this pregnancy, I have a feeling that these Marah flats will probably incur the most wear.  They’re supple, ridiculously comfortable, and perfectly modern.  A real classic.
