Shop Around // Topshop x Nordstrom

The Fall after I graduated college, I headed to London for a few months to take a class at Central St. Martins. I LOVED the city: the history, the neighborhoods, the accents. And the shopping. The shopping was BEYOND. One day, while exploring/getting lost (this was pre-GPS), I stumbled upon Oxford Street and my life was forever changed. That bustling stretch of street was host to some of the best shopping I’d ever seen, from Accessorize

Shop Around // Atelier by AdornUSA

I’ve known about Atelier by AdornUSA for a while, but I’ve known the company’s founder, Arlene Aranzamendez, even longer. We initially met when she did some graphic design work for a company I used to work for, and have managed to keep in touch via seemingly random encounters over the years. A few years ago, Arlene opened an online-only jewelry shop, then expanded to a small boutique in Madeira, and now has a cool spot in

Even a cursory glance inside new Vine Street boutique Continuum reveals a range of highly Instagram-able vignettes, from the palm-print wallpaper to the meticulously arranged accessories. Don’t just look at it from outside, though--step in and take a look around, if only to find out where that strange pink glow is coming from. I popped in one extremely nosy Saturday, and wound up chatting with Continuum owner Ericka Leighton-Spradlin. Predictably, she studied fine arts at DAAP

Shop It Like It’s Hot Part 1 // Idlewild Woman

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of photo shoots, interesting projects, and social fun, but on one recent Saturday I decided to embrace my extreme nosiness (henceforth known as “healthy curiosity”) and check out all the new shops popping up on OTR’s Vine Street. As a stylist, it serves me quite well to have more shops conveniently clustered together just a few blocks from the crib, and I have to say was pretty
