Style // Black & White & Sweat All Over

It’s hot out hurr, but leave it to me to sweat my way through the heat wave in my favorite color combo and bracelet-as-choker contraption. I picked up this breezy little top on sale at Sloane, and guys, the sales right now are INSANE. Now is the time to shop for the trendy little pieces you couldn’t convince yourself to invest in at full price, or that high end item you couldn't really afford otherwise....

Untitled (How Does It Feel)

[caption id="attachment_5499" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Photo: Tiernae Salley[/caption] Last Friday was a weird day. After waking up to news of yet another violent tragedy for the third time in as many days, I was terminated. No, not in the futuristic cyborg assassination sense. As in my position was eliminated. I was fired. I packed up my desk in a daze. I called my mom. I cried. Like any relationship, even if it’s one that’s not working anymore, leaving...

CLOSED Giveaway // Inspired by Women with a Vision (Sponsored)

[caption id="attachment_5799" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Photo: Claudia Hershner[/caption] My first encounter with feminism came via a Fabulous Five book I read in elementary school. The main character (Jana) notes that her friend Katie is deep into the “women’s movement,” which sent me scurrying to my mother to ask what that meant. I don’t remember exactly what she told me, but I know that it wasn’t until years later, when I did a mental rewind and remembered that...

Newsletters are New Again

It seems antiquated in the age of the FaceChats and InstaTweets, but e-newsletters are experiencing a surprising resurgence. Much like the rebirth of podcasts, a new wave of emailed infotainment has come to take over our inboxes. While the format hasn’t changed significantly since the days of OGs like DailyCandy (RIP), a well executed newsletter provides welcome relief from the usual bill notifications and cash-strapped Nigerian princes. A few of my current favorites: Tomorrow Looks Bright This curated newsletter highlights...

I Just Want Your Extra Time

I knew this would happen someday. After the too-soon deaths of Michael, Whitney, Amy, and so many others, I knew I would lose my favorite at some point. But I was totally unprepared for Prince’s death, news of which came yesterday via TMZ (how do they always know?). I was on a photo shoot and just happened to be browsing Twitter when the questions started popping up. Was it true? Was it a hoax? My...

Style // Spring CINsation

Friends, I think we've finally (finally!) reached the time of year when it's not-crazy to wear a medium-weight sweater instead of the layers of down and wool and Monchichi™ fur necessitated by temperatures that barely reach the legal drinking age. What I'm saying is, it's Spring! [caption id="attachment_5764" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Vintage sweater, earrings, and blouse, Madewell jeans, Limited purse, BCBGeneration booties[/caption] Spring means it's time to shop, and what could be more fun/convenient/tempting than a whole entire event dedicated to shopping?...

Meet Genevieve

One beautiful, sunny (and extremely windy) afternoon, I broke out my favorite blue velvet flares and got my baby hair in order to meet photographer Damon Wilson and Queen City Vignette’s Amber Zaragoza for a photo shoot. The star of the shoot? No, not me. A chair. Not just any chair, though. Genevieve - which totally sounds like a historical American Girl doll I would’ve loved - is a vintage settee made of carved wood and...
