Tips & Advice // 4 Reasons to Create A Look

I have this weird habit of editorializing my personal style--it comes with the job, I guess. Though I don’t go quite as far as wearing the same thing every day like this art director (which actually seems like a good idea), I like creating a look each season because it makes it easier for me to shop and edit my wardrobe. The benefits are small but meaningful: In addition to saving time getting dressed every...

Shop Around // Camargo Trading Company

On one of my first trips to Camargo Trading Company, nosiness/curiosity led me on a dizzying exploration of wedding registry plates, plaid picture frames, and other tchotchkes and gifts for the ladies-who-lunch-in-yoga-pants set. I’d seen just about everything when, lured by a “Sale” sign, I cautiously headed towards a quiet corner in the back of the store. "There’s more upstairs,” a friendly voice chimed in from behind, and for the first time I noticed the staircase...

What’s on My Spring/Summer Wish List

It’s that time of the year and I’ve got warm weather on the brain! For Spring, I’m obsessed with tropical prints: lush greens and blues with bright coral and tangerine accents, all tempered by contrast-y black and white. Yes, I’m fully aware that orange makes me look like a corpse but I don’t care! I have a whole Elvis-in-Hawaii-meets-downtown-it-girl thing in mind and I’m determined to make it happen. Here’s what’s been swirling around in...

Fashion // Try These Fall 2015 Trends Now

With fashion month under our collective designer belts and Winter a not-so-distant memory (hallelu!), it might seem weird to talk about Fall when everyone is so desperate for Spring. Real talk, though: It’s not exactly hot outside. In fact, this transition period is one of the few times of year when we can mix winter and summer gear and not look completely crazy. Wanna wear a tank top with a faux fur chubby and boots?...

Style // Fuzzy Wuzzy Wuz a Sweater

There are sweaters and then there are sweaters. I enjoy a good cuddle, so for me, the cozier the better. After pulling this vintage mohair sweater for a photo shoot months ago, I was innocently browsing at Hi-Bred when I just happened to see it was still available. It was fate, y’all. I wore it with a satin skirt in the same creamy shade, vintage flower earrings, and caramel colored boots and tried to refrain...

Shopping // Step Up Your Gift Game at the CAC’s Revamped Gift Shop

For some people, the shopping at the museum is just as important as the art at the museum. I confess: I am one of those people. So it should come as no surprise that I was excited to see the Contemporary Arts Center’s revamped gift shop. At 300 square feet, the new shop’s footprint is smaller than the previous retail space (that area is now a gorgeously appointed café), but is now front and center, boasting...

The Total Look is the Total Package for Fashion Enthusiasts

For lovers of fashion and history, the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Rudi Gernreich retrospective is a dream come true, especially if your dreams are a cross between a swinging ‘60s dance party, a fashion magazine editorial, and a passionate women’s rights rally. Yes? Well then, welcome to The Total Look. The Total Look focuses on Gernreich's work throughout his career, which was heavily influenced by feminism and his collaboration with model and muse Peggy Moffitt (whose archive...
