it Girl

Name: Linse Rose Kelbe

Dossier: Aspiring to be a late 19th century French woman. Living in New York and working in finance. Lover of art, ballet and East Asian culture.


Linse Rose is wearing Kamila Dmowska 3 Piece Flower Dress, Anne Klein coat, Aldo shoes and vintage earrings. Photographed by William Ross.

My go-to item, regardless of season or occasion…

Black dress, black heels, pearl earrings and red lipstick – classic, simple, elegant.

Fashion is…

Complement the individual and not be a statement unto itself.

I love this dress because… 

It’s perfect for spring, which I am so looking forward to! The floral pattern is lovely and the color is feminine – I can imagine wearing it to a spring garden party.

What’s in my bag…

Red YSL lipstick (the bottle itself is a work of art), a hand mirror a friend gave to me when I visited her in Saint Petersburg, whichever book I’m currently reading (at the moment Molière’s Le Misanthrope), and Mandarin vocabulary flashcards.

Three things I love about my city…

First, the Met – I live down the street and go every chance I get (the Greek and Roman sculpture wing is my favorite). Second is Central Park – I just starting taking figure skating lessons at Wollman Rink this winter and it’s one of my favorite parts of the week. Third is getting dressed up to attend the NYC Ballet or Metropolitan Opera in Lincoln Center.

My style icons…

Grace Kelly, Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn and Kiera Knightley in Anna Karenina.

Favorite fashion instagrams to follow…

@sy_ro, a friend of mine who designs amazing multimedia handbags, @maiyet, an ethically-minded luxury brand that uses traditional artisanal methods from around the world, and, of course, @kamiladmowska!

New York most-liked restaurants...

Café Cluny in the West Village for their amazing French toast, La Grenouille for special occasions, and Soba-ya for casual Japanese.

I am addicted to…

Cheese and cashews.

Best beauty advice I have ever received…
