“Had J.Crew never made a pair of high waist, cropped and flared white jeans, I never would have bought them, loved them and declared them a fixture of my summer wardrobe. They cost me $150, so were they cheap? No. But they also weren’t made cheaply — which is important. And in comparison to the designer iterations that […]
In LA, it’s just another Friday. In NY, Nor’easter memories are still fresh and winter coats still reign—therefore, it’s just another Friday. I’m rarely one to not mourn the end of knitwear season (probably because, for me, there is no end to knitwear season), but I’m excited to try everything new for spring. Shirtdresses? YES. […]
My snarky albeit honest piece on Tres Dope is turning out to be pretty popular. Because really, boys…we don’t dress for you.

You’re the refuge we girls seek from the notion that femininity requires heels and aching feet–quite literally, as you sometimes accompany us in our purses on those late nights when our urge to be comfortable overcomes our […]
When it comes to bags, I buy one that I love and use it until it breaks or just can’t hold up anymore. And when it does, it’s sad, but also rewarding–if it lasted a long time. It inspires the feeling that it was loved and worn and had a good run. I’m not into […]
You no longer think it’s worth it to shop at Forever 21 (and kind of question how you ever thought it was). You’re starting to see that H&M is really just Forever 21 with better branding, and you’ve stopped trying to understand the hype. Your idea of what’s “sexy” has evolved (and there’s less skin-bearing […]
