Wearing Tory’s Solaro one-piece and Milos beach pant, Jeannie Lee — who owns popular L.A. boutique Satine — shares her packed schedule with us from earlier today, Day Two of the Spring 2015 fashion circuit.

NYFW Mad Libs: Model Agent Cheri Bowen

In honor of Fashion Week, we approached The Society’s model agent Cheri Bowen for her take on the age-old word game, Mad Libs. She filled in the blanks about what happens behind the scenes in her world of models and utter madness.

Editors’ Style Tip: Hitting the NYFW Shows

To make a style statement, whether at the shows or elsewhere, here’s a simple tip from the Tory Daily team: Pick a statement piece and work everything else around it. Here, we’ve chosen the Wendy pullover — with its bold crystal embellishments — and paired it with our printed Sherry shirt and pleated Audra skirt for a touch of contrast. Complete the Fashion Week look with chic heels, like our Astrid ghillies, and an understated bag that’s roomy enough to fit all those editor essentials: iPad, notebook, invitations…

Book of the Week: Claiborne Swanson Frank’s Young Hollywood

With a simple camera click, Claiborne Swanson Frank takes the style icons she shoots and makes us, the viewer, feel like an insider in their magical world. Her last book American Beauty featured glamour girls from all over the world. Now, in Young Hollywood, she turns her camera on the next generation of female movers and shakers in Los Angeles — a fitting move considering this former New Yorker is a recent West Coast transplant herself. Here, the photographer (who was raised in San Francisco), above, talks to us about the women in her new book and even gives us a peek into how her own life and wardrobe have changed since becoming a California girl again…

We’re getting ready for New York Fashion Week and, yet, can’t quite let go of these last days of summer. To ease the transition, we’ve set the mood with this film, by Robert Nethery, featuring Tory’s whirlwind tour of Los Angeles when she was in town for the opening of the Rodeo Drive store earlier this year.

Julia Chaplin On: Gypset Living Spaces

Few contemporary portmanteaus have gained traction as quickly as the term “gypset” has — celebrity couplings à la Brangelina aside. To say the word now is to conjure up a freewheeling bohemian lifestyle, equal doses gypsy and jet set — and for this we have journalist Julia Chaplin to thank. A frequent contributor to The New York Times and Travel + Leisure, she’s also the author of Gypset Travel and Gypset Style and, next month, releases the third book in the series, Gypset Living. In this latest addition, she explores the architecture and interiors of her globetrotting tribe. Here, she counts down her favorites.

Tory Entertains: Tory’s Table

“One of my favorite things to do is set a beautiful table when I’m having friends over for dinner, lunch or brunch. It’s something my mom Reva did — even family dinners every night were set with fresh flowers, her favorite tureens and printed linens. I carry through my love of print and color into how I entertain. Here, purple flowers I cut from the garden pick up the fresh greens and linens and plates in soft blues. Our linens and spongeware pieces from our new home collection are in my favorite color combination, blue-and-white. It brightens up the whole table. I added in different textured vases — all in bright white — that I found on my travels or in flea markets. I love pieces that have a story behind them. It all plays off natural wood and rattan touches in the hurricanes, silverware and chairs.” — Tory
