On the Road Again: Chicago

I'm not sure why I continue to torture myself in this manner, but I've decided to take the Megabus to Chicago to attend a friend's birthday celebration (woo-hoo!). Long bus rides are not my idea of a good time, but it beats driving: Tamia + long distance drive in unfamiliar territory = road rage of the highest degree. Plus, I'd inevitably get lost. Like, stuck in the middle of a cornfield in Arkansas lost. Yes, even...

Style: Menswear Inspired

Perhaps inspired by the Comme des Garcons/Like the Boys post from last week, I felt the urge to express my masculine side, which, much like my feminine side, involves scowling arrogantly, greedily stuffing junk food down my throat, and telling other people what to do. Trousers, J. Crew; oxford shirt, vest, and suspenders, thrifted; shoes, Charles David; Porkpie hat, Hats in the Belfry; Watch, Timex...

Style Psychology: Ugly, But Cool

Have you ever been attracted to something (or someone) you never would have considered your type? You know, something that doesn't fit into your usual style, something that doesn't "look like you?" I never bothered to take psych in college, so I'm not sure if this particular condition has a name, but I do know it's happened to me before.  I still regret not buying some of the ugliest rings I've ever laid eyes on (they...

Blogger Jewelry: Rare Jewels

Notice how I didn't use the over-used, incredibly predictable reference to jewelry as "bling" for the title? You can thank me with cash. I am heavy into jewelry right now, especially dramatic necklaces. Let's take a look at the lovely pieces recently seen on a few of my favorite bloggers: I love this combination of heavy gold necklaces, and the length is perfect. http://theseams.blogspot.com/ This vintage gold necklace is a great accent under blouses as it lies perfectly on the...

Style: Like the Boys

Sometimes I want to be like the boys. No, not in the smelly-feet-raggedy-drawers-don't-clean-up-after-yourself way. I mean in the important way: wardrobe wise, of course. It's not a new idea: women have been "borrowing" men's clothing for years to great effect: Think of silver screen stars Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn draping themselves in men's suiting, the iconic movie wardrobe of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, and the laid-back glamour of Yves St. Laurent's le smoking. Even the boys...

Easter Style: Suited Up

Suit and clutch, vintage; necklace, local designer Nomad; shoes, Guiseppe Zanotti I'm back from a much-needed break, hoping you had a lovely Easter/vernal equinox/whatever you celebrated. Time with my family + marshmallow Peeps = a great time for me! Pictured above:  this year's Easter suit, which is really just a vintage suit from the 80's given to me by a former co-worker who would regale me with stories of strutting around offices (when smoking was allowed indoors!)...
