I'm happy to report that this week was a huge improvement over last! It could be due to the drop in temperatures we've finally had here in LA, or perhaps it's thanks to the fact that I at last completed... Continue reading

Amongst my many harebrained schemes is a dinner party at which every course, from appetizers to entrees to desserts, consists of some type of sandwich. If I ever make this dream a reality, these grilled s'mores melts will undoubtedly be... Continue reading

You know the old-timey pseudoscience of phrenology, which claimed that the lumps and bumps on a person's skull could predict his personality? While that 19th century practice is obviously claptrap, balderdash, and hooey, I've got my own working theory of... Continue reading

I had one of those weeks. From my health to my finances, bad news piled up 'til all I wanted to do was retreat to my bed. Then today I spotted a kitten lying in the middle of the street.... Continue reading

There's something about wearing ultra wide leg pants that makes you feels very avant-garde. I remember my first pair of menswear-inspired trousers. I was a junior in high school, when low-rise bootcut jeans were de rigeur, and I begged my... Continue reading

I was late to the Pinterest party. The platform launched when I was knee deep in my work with Rue Magazine, and at the time I couldn't be bothered with a site that encouraged me to bury myself in other... Continue reading

I fell into a trap this weekend—one I'll bet you can relate to. I put too much pressure on myself to have "the perfect weekend". You know, one filled with all the fun we daydream about during the long workdays:... Continue reading

Ready for a history lesson? Many moons ago, in my high school French class, I prepared a report on the composer Erik Satie. You'd expect a guy who wrote songs with titles like 'War Song of the King of Beans'... Continue reading

What is it about Australia that makes it a hotbed for fabulous style? Having never been myself I can't speak to the why—perhaps there's something in the water?—but as a longtime long-distance observer of that country's design exports I can... Continue reading

When crop tops started to eke their way back onto the scene after a long (and largely welcome) absence, my sartorial curmudgeon self groaned and rolled her eyes. However my inner five-year-old jumped up and down just as she did... Continue reading

Every day for lunch, I make myself a salad using whatever ingredients are hanging about in the fridge. The combos are usually pretty mundane, and sometimes they're even disappointing. But every once in a while I stumble upon a mix... Continue reading

While I was working on the book this past summer I got into a real rut when it came to getting out and socializing. By nature I've never been much of a party animal, and the excuse of being tied... Continue reading
