I don't know how many times I've stalked Sézane's beautiful website. Web design-wise, it's pretty snazzy. Product-wise, it's even better. I've been drooling over these boots for some time, and imagine my surprise—nay, delight—that Madewell has made them available stateside.... Continue reading

Happy Friday! I'm on my second sick day in a row, which is pretty crappy this early in the season. However, I've watched a marathon of Parks & Rec (holy hilarious) and had some time to catch up on Pinterest.... Continue reading

Sometimes I keep myself busy doing work with some pretty wonderful people. Loren is the best "permanent client" a girl could ask for. Every new look book launch is an adventure, and I think this is my favorite so far.... Continue reading

Blogging is, like, hard these days. Obviously I don't do it that often anymore, but you know by now that when I do—I mean it. Case in point... The one-year anniversary of my beautiful grandmother's death came and went last... Continue reading

Good point! I think art is what you want it to be. If longevity is important to someone, they probably wouldn't consider it art. But personally, I like that a lot of what we have today is ephemeral. There's always an opportunity to change and adjust or try something new. There's a thrill in that. But I'm not even sure I'd call it art either. Debate!

Hi Marie! Nice to meet you. In future, it's probably a good idea to read the entire post before commenting. Your hostile tone indicates that you didn't quite get there. For the record: No one is tearing anyone down here—except you.

Oh hey, old favorite style column. Glad to see you again. This look! I love how clean and chic it is, but the best part is the simplicity—a blank canvas top and bottom, a seasonal jacket, interchangeable shoes and accessories.... Continue reading

Why do I keep blogging about shoes? I don't know. Maybe because I walk at least 2 miles a day to and from work—at least, I do when I'm feeling motivated and the weather is nice. Needless to say, I... Continue reading
