This is why I like shoes with ankle straps

So, this is probably going to sound silly, but I think my ankles are too skinny to pull off the socks-with-heels thing. Seriously, look!I thought I'd grown out of this particular paranoia (like maybe I gained some "ankle weight" or something), but these pictures brought it alllll back. Sigh. THIS is why I prefer shoes with ankle straps!Y'all know I think red shoes go with everything, so I did like the colors and the gold

Inspiration: White Hot

I don't know if it's the (mostly) warmer weather or my sudden, overwhelming need to wipe the proverbial slate clean, but clean, crisp whites accented with soft neutrals have been on my radar.Images: FashionZen, Dirty Hems, Taylor Made, High Style in the Hudson Valley, B. Jones Style, StreetFsn, One Dress a WeekApparently, I'm not the only one feeling this way - plenty of  fellow fashion-lovers have embraced creamy shades this Spring. It's also affected my

Tumblr Tuesday: Golden vertebrae and abstract chickens

I'm not a fan of Erin Wasson, but the styling here is dope; This vertebrae ring could get it; Any print that reminds me of an abstract '80s chicken is strangely intriguing; An over-the-top room requiress lounging around in a silk robe Hef-style; When I stack random stuff on a chair it just looks messy--I must be doing it wrong; Cute girls taking street style pictures of cute girls taking pictures is so meta it

Photo Diary: Hello, Summer

Last weekend went from "yay, Spring!" to "dang, Summer already?" in a matter of hours. Whew! Kasmira was nice enough to invite me to a performance of Enchanted April, put on by The Drama Workshop. Reva and I thoroughly enjoyed the costumes and the show! I was out taking street style pictures when I interrupted this dude's smoking break. I'm pretty sure that was a cigarette

Trying for Spring…

A few things I'd like to try right now:Bold lipcolor. I've been experimenting with a cheap lipliner and various lipsticks before I go whole hog buying an electric violet-y lipstick. I'd like to try orange, too.I gotta take better care of my hair. Detangle more often. Maybe try some henna and coconut oil. I've gotten lazy.There is a turban in my future. I can feel it!I'm veeeerrrrry interested in crop tops, despite an

Like it’s golden

Thrifted polo oxford + purse; vintage dress from Talk of the Town; earrings from Paris J. Boutique; Roxy sandalsSomething about balmy weather and warm breezes brings out the preppy-hippie -glam in me. Long dresses (hippie), oxfords knotted at the waist (preppy) and big sparkly earrings (glam) seem like a perfectly reasonable combination when it feels like it's finally(!) Spring.

Tumblr Tuesday: Brontosauruses and picnics with pillows

Karlie and Jourdan make posing nude with just a hat look easy, but it's HARD y'all; I loved dinosaurs as a kid and this brontosaurus planter is juuust immature enough to pass for kitsch; I've had to stop being sad and start being awesome a lot lately so this is a good reminder; I don't know where this lovely picnic took place, but I want to go to there; This picture makes me want to

Jalouse-y

Last weekend, I took some time to catch up on my required reading--magazines, of course--and came across an editorial of pitch-perfect '70s secretary looks in the February issue of Jalouse:I don't know how they knew (darn Frenchies!), but this is exactly how I want to dress right now. Ladylike blouses, belted blazers, and cropped trousers are at the top of my Spring wish list. For now, I'm making do
