Photo Diary // Stripper Heels and Photo Shoots

I know I’ve been MIA lately, but I’m still outchea! Here’s what I’ve been up to: 1// Took a really fun pole dancing class and loved it! It’s a really good workout--kind of like the uneven bars, but vertical. 2// Y'all know Halloween is my favorite holiday--this year I got myself Urkelized for the office party and won the prize for funniest costume! 3// Spent some time climbing big rocks and enjoying 90-degree weather in Phoenix. I miss...

Fall Wish List

Ever since the weather cooled off and the days got shorter, I’ve been looking forward to getting down to serious (fashion) business. While summer is all about being floaty and carefree, cooler weather means disciplined layering, and this Fall I’m all about structured minimalism and sharp contrast. Here’s what I’m looking forward to wearing: 1 // White shirts I would like to wear white button-down shirts with everything, please. Bonus points for anything tunic length with...

Style // Fashion Formula

Something about formulas has always appealed to me, even though math has never really been my strong suit. I used to make up “creative equations” during calculus tests, which pretty much negates the purpose of formulas in the first place, right? But the idea of an exact way to do something is heaven to my overzealous organizational tendencies, so I when this look garnered a lot of compliments at a recent party, I tried to break...

As Dope as Ms. Pope

Last week, my friend Will invited me to a sneak preview of The Limited x Scandal collection, a collaborative effort between Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo, Kerry Washington, and the Limited’s design team. After checking everything out, let me just say that they got the Olivia Pope Look down pat: the tweedy blazers and wide-legged trousers, muted pastel color palette, and yes, white coats and jackets galore perfectly mimic Olivia’s powerful-yet-vulnerable swag. I put together a...

Style // Fashion Run

Every now and then, something you’ve always wanted to happen actually happens, and you get to run around Saks like a wild-eyed fashion fiend, feverishly grabbing luxurious designer clothes and shoes and bags without even bothering to look at the price tag. It was like the adult lady version of those Toys ‘R Us Nickelodeon Toy Runs, but with Imaginary Friend Manolo Blahnik egging you on instead of Geoffrey the Giraffe. And, of course, the...

Style // La Garconne

I found this vintage skirt years ago while browsing at some random thrift store. Because of the fit and flare shape and pastel-y palette, I usually go for a ladylike look when I wear it, but this time I was feeling less dainty housewife, more slightly androgynous la garconne. Worn with a men’s button down (I cut it into a crop top because...
