Photo Diary: Meat Cleavers and Red Lipstick

  Lately, I’ve been: Trying on insanely expensive Choo booties I can’t afford; Hanging out with the girls and practicing the Top Model Booty Tooch; Threatening to cut people Dexter-style (yes, AGAIN); Connecting my Earth Spirit to the Mother Sky or whatever at yoga; Stepping up my lipstick game for Fall; And trying (then quitting after two days) the 80-10-10 diet in an attempt to get my energy levels back to normal. I tried y’all, I really sort of did. Mostly. Kind...

Black + White is Always Right

The classic can’t-miss color combo works for every season, always. Here’s how I’m wearing it now: Pin-Up Chic Moda International sweater, A-Wear skirt, vintage belt and heels A cropped sweater and surprisingly comfy (cotton!) pencil skirt gets the Sixties Italian Movie Star treatment with a glossy belt and strappy heels. Add a headscarf and oversized sunglasses if you really want to take it to the next level! Refined Tomboy Helmut Lang dress, KESH x American Apparel hat, vintage heels, ring...

Summer Reading: Fashion and Style

Although the googlenet has made reading flippy square things made of paper completely unnecessary, I have managed to (mostly) finish a few books this summer. Admittedly, some were re-reads and they’re all in the fashion/style category, but I feel like that’s valid because at least now I can claim “it’s for work.” 01.// Fashion Babylon by Imogen Edwards-Jones and Anonymous Honestly, this book intrigued me, stressed me out, and scared the crap out of me all at...

Style Tip: Sleeveless Blazer

There are some items that can make even the most slob-a-rific outfit look like a million bucks: nice heels, red lipstick, statement jewelry, a structured blazer. The blazer thing usually requires layering, which can prove to be a challenge in the summer months. However, this white sleeveless blazer (didn’t we call them vests once upon a time?) from Zara fits the bill and makes even raggedy denim shorts you’ve had since middle school look like...

Photo Diary: Sand Dunes and Tapestry Shoes

Lately I've been hiking up sand dunes around Lake Michigan (in the Nike wedges, no less--but ONLY because it wasn't a planned hike), hanging out at music festivals to see The Black Keys, ogling fabulous shoes I can't afford even on sale, and playing kickball in the park like an overgrown-yet-hilariously-uncoordinated kid.

Oops, I Did It Again

A little over a year ago, my life was changed. I obsessed for weeks--should I or shouldn’t I?--before finally making the move. I bought my first pair of Nike x Liberty Sky High Dunks. The compliments haven’t stopped since, and let’s keep it real, we all know that’s what fab shoes are about. Last year, a woman waiting next to me at a restaurant literally demanded to know where I’d bought them and looked them up...
