Work Style: Leather Love

I found this teal leather dress on a whirlwind thrift store tour, and figured it was too bad-in-a-good-way to pass up.  For months, it sat in my trunk aka third closet, languishing in the heat and cold, only to see the light of day when bags of groceries needed a ride home. Lately, I've been trying to wear more of the clothes I own, so out it came. But what to do with it? Teal leather...

Style Sample Magazine

A while ago, I posted about an idea for a magazine for and about fashion bloggers. Well, due to a combination of much-appreciated encouragement and extreme willfulness, I've been pushing forward and hope to publish the first issue in April thanks to some very generous and talented blogger-friends. I am extremely excited/hopeful/stressed/fired up/nervous about this project, and have been vacillating between feverishly scribbling down ideas about all the possibilities and trying to focus on producing the...
