I couldn't be happier about this season's leanings towards big chunky knits. They're just right for sinking into when the winds pick up! And even better, I've seen tons of layering—for example topping an intarsia sweater with a swirling scarf,... Continue reading

As I mentioned on Friday, I rented cabin in the mountains for the weekend. What a fantastic time I had! From the crisp high altitude air to the kitschy rustic decor, I relished every detail and came back feeling so... Continue reading

Happy Friday! I trust everyone survived the week? Mine was busy but not without its pleasures, including a fabulous celebration dinner at Bestia, my absolute favorite restaurant here in LA. (Apparently the way to my heart is through fresh pasta...)... Continue reading

You know that episode of Seinfeld in which Elaine squats in a broom closet so she can pretend she lives within the delivery boundaries of her favorite Chinese food restaurant? Every year at Halloween, I can relate completely to her... Continue reading

The word on the street is that neutrals—shades of tan, beige, sand, ecru—are the new black. And indeed, magazines and fashion blogs are rife with galleries of neatly turned out women strutting their stuff in camel coats, winter whites, and... Continue reading

Lately it seems that whenever I spot a woman wearing something so fabulous that I'm inspired to stop what I'm doing and track down the source of her outfit, the answer is always the same: Anine Bing. Though the brand... Continue reading

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

Remember last month when I told you I'd be partnering with Jawbone to tracking my actvities with the Jawbone UP24 wristband? Well I've been wearing the UP24 religiously for the last four weeks and now it's time to share my... 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

Last week I did a roundup of this season's essential wide leg pants, with some ideas on how to style them. But of course actions speak louder than words, so I thought I ought to show you how I wear... 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

Let me start out by saying that I've had these boots for ages. But you wouldn't know it, because they hide out at the back of my closet, neglected, whispering 'pick us! pick us!' every time I reach for a... 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

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
