Color Blocking

You know that "closet full of clothes but nothing to wear" feeling? I hate that. I've tried many times over the years to do something about it--I've tried reorganizing my wardrobe, picking outfits in advance, separating clothing and accessories by style--all to no avail. Some days I stand staring into my closet with no idea where to start. So now, I'm trying something different: I'm limiting my wardrobe and any future purchases to a defined color...

Happy Birthday to Me!

The weekend before last, I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday two days in a row! I spent time with people I love, ate wonderful food, and dressed up for absolutely no reason. Oh, and I got to say I lived another year. I guess that's pretty special. Honestly, I spent most of the weekend working on the new issue of Style Sample magazine. Putting this one together was a doozy--missing photos, extra layouts, unanswered...

A Helluva Town

I took a trip to New York City this past weekend to attend my good friend's wedding. I hadn't been to NY since--well, I don't remember exactly, but it's been at least 2 years. I love the city, but haven't had the time or funds to make my regular pilgrimage, though I have been faithfully praying to the shopping gods on a regular basis. After being "welcomed" by the rudest cab driver ever, I checked in...

Don’t Call it a Comeback

Man, I've missed this. I've missed you! I don't really enjoy writing (ironic that I do so much of it), but I recently realized how much I like blogging. I think it's the feedback and sense of community, in addition to the fact that sometimes it feels really good to get it all out, you know? I regret that I've been so bad about posting--that was partly because I'm a master procrastinator, but mostly because...

Street Style Inspiration

One of the best things about the interwebz is the rise of street style photos. Sure the world wide web has other semi-useful purposes, but when it comes to checking out what other people are wearing, it really starts to earn its keep. These are a few of my current favorites. Clearly, I'm feeling the Parisian dandy/deconstructed stage costume look right now.

Style: English Countryside

The weather goddess was nice enough to give us a break from hair-frizzing 90-degree humidity and grace us with cool breezes and temperatures in the 70's. All the better to break out the riding boots (I've missed my boots and sweaters!) and a thrifted plaid blazer on the way to a late breakfast. Plus Cortez (kitty) is doing much better so I was all "What's all this, then?" and in a really good mood. Blazer, necklaces,...

Interview with: M641

M641 business partners Subu and Ina had been friends for years before launching clothing line Madras 641 in Spring 2007, just months after putting together the initial business plan. "In January 2007 during a visit together while our little ones were playing she shared her dream to have her own clothing label one day. Since both of us were at home full-time now with our little ones, we realized had so much in common and...
