Elettra Wiedemann On: Farmers’ Markets

Bet you didn’t know that model Elettra Wiedemann wrote her dissertation, at the London School of Economics, on vertical farming and post-climate-change agriculture. She’s serious about healthy eating — so much so that, this summer, she launched her own food blog Impatient Foodie, where she talks about local and seasonal foods as well as indulgences like kale coconut white chip ice cream (recipe included). Here, she takes us out to a farmers’ market in New York, Early Girl Farm.

Tory Entertains: Mixed Messages

“I love unusual pairings in fashion, decor or entertaining. Mixing colors, patterns and references — something from the 1960s with something from the 1860s — makes for an interesting visual and conversation. Like an early 19th-century Asian cart my father Buddy found while traveling, that I now use for flowers and barware during parties. Here, for a summer lunch, I put fresh-cut hydrangeas in our new spongeware pitcher. I love how the classic blue-and-white of the spongeware pieces and the delicateness of our new stemware plays off the strong curves of the antique cart.” — Tory

  • Day in the Life: Jessica Minkoff

Downtown, uptown and then downtown again. The life of a fashion editor is a peripatetic one, full of breakfast meetings, showroom appointments and evening events all over town.

Here wearing Tory’s Kimba sweater and Lila jacket, she details the day she brought our Tory Burch for Fitbit metal hinged bracelet along for the ride.

Heading into summer’s homestretch is the perfect time for a sweet SoCal album like Jenny LewisThe Voyager. The former Rilo Kiley lead singer asked friends Ryan Adams and Beck to help on a few tracks and photographer Autumn de Wilde to shoot the cover — of her in a rainbow Gram Parsons pantsuit. But it’s the album’s first video, for Just One of the Guys, that has gone viral. Watch here for Lewis’ back-up band of Anne Hathaway, Brie Larson and Kristen Stewart run around in cross-dressing mustaches and track suits or dance with enough cool ennui to make Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love girls proud.

Lisa Robinson On: My Life in Rock & Roll

Few people can say they’ve gone on tour with The Rolling Stones and chatted fox-trot and waltz with Mick Jagger. Or had Lady Gaga invite them to a home-cooked meal at her parent’s house — where the singer made the pasta sauce and said grace. Or been the one to introduce David Bowie to Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. Or talked Beatles convention memorabilia with John Lennon (who wanted a lunch box). Vanity Fair contributing editor Lisa Robinson has done all of the above — and scores more. Read all about Lisa’s incredible 40-year career as a music journalist in her book There Goes Gravity and… in our one-on-one interview with the writer here.

Spotlight On: Lee Ann Womack

Almost seven years after her last album debut, country star Lee Ann Womack is finally back with The Way I’m Livin’, out this September. And get ready; it features some of her most raw and intimate songs yet. “It just seems like music when it is most powerful hits you right between the eyes,” says Lee Ann, here wearing Tory’s Margherita dress. “Some of these songs are hard truths, tough moments, places you’d rather not be, but you know, life takes you to those places sometimes.” Produced by her husband Frank Liddell, each tune comes from a different songwriter — 13 in all — adding to the album’s emotional reach. Here, we chat with the Grammy winner about what we can expect with The Way I’m Livin’ — plus her first music memories and thoughts on the singer-songwriter relationship.

Music Tastemaker: Holly Williams on Nashville & Stage Style

Holly Williams has country music in her blood, really — her father and grandfather are industry legends Hank Williams, Jr. and Sr. She’s equally renowned on her own, too, with three albums to her name and a tour this summer through the South (Duluth, Georgia, is up on Thursday) and Canada (August 9th and 10th). But her CV goes beyond her set of incredible pipes to include two Nashville shops: fashion boutique H. Audrey and White’s Mercantile, which she dubs a modern-day general store. And have we mentioned her addictive lifestyle blog The Afternoon Off? (Five words: key lime coconut bar recipe.) Here, for The Tory Blog’s Music Issue, Holly takes some time out of her packed schedule to dish music memories, NKOTB crushes and on-stage style.

Instead, we might be calling it Trimalchio or Trimalchio in West Egg, the author's preferred working titles for his best-known novel — that is, until his publisher pointed out that no one would get his reference to the hard-partying character from Satyricon, a work of fiction from first-century Rome. In Suzette Field's tome A Curious Invitation: 40 Greatest Parties in Fiction, Gatsby and Trimalchio are brought together — alongside Stephen King's Carrie, Lewis Carroll's Alice and Tom Wolfe's social x-rays — in a compilation of literature's 40 greatest soirees. Each event, from Gatsby's Saturday night bashes to Carrie's prom, is broken down into a veritable who's who, what they wore and what they ate and drank. Because plenty of writers have thrown legendary parties — Truman Capote and Fitzgerald among them — but the best way to stage an unforgettable fete? Write it into creation.

Men wear a sprig of lily of the valley — also known as muguet, May bells or May lily — in their lapel, and women are given fresh bouquets of the flower.

The tradition dates back to the first of May, 1561, when the country's 10-year-old King Charles was presented with a bunch of the white blossoms — a gesture symbolizing luck, happiness and prosperity. As the story goes, he was so touched, he continued the tradition on the same day every year thereafter by offering lily of the valley to the ladies of his court — and the custom continues today.

A: The day revolves around our whole family gathering for a big family meal. It's the kind of chaos I love — a lot of talking, laughing and eating. We're at the table for hours, so it has to be something we feel comfortable around. And since I'm not a big cook, I'm happy to take over décor duty. I like a lot of tea lights and use my favorite pieces, like monogrammed linens I've had for a while and Imari vases filled with fresh flowers and berries (keeping the arrangement low so we can see each other across the table). I mix up fall oranges and purples with a little hot pink.

Smith how to capture a little summer élan at home. The L.A.-based Smith is known for mixing American modernism and European tradition and has redone homes for Steven Spielberg, Lynn de Rothschild, Michelle Pfeiffer and, of course, the White House for the Obamas.

The key to making a home feel summery… I'm a big believer in classic slipcovers — a set of white slipcovers feels relaxed and cool. I also really like putting down sisal or apple matting from Pottery Barn or Crate & Barrel It's not a big investment and makes the room feel fresher. And I love to change the fragrance — Frédéric Malle's Gardenia and Christian Tortu's Tomato Leaf candles are simple and good.
