Lykke Li + & Other Stories (Plus an American Store!)

The past few months, I have been patiently waiting for an e-mail from the British brand & Other Stories notifying me that their U.S. online store has opened.  In the early hours of this morning, I received the message for which I had eagerly been waiting.  (Their brick and mortar American venture will open Friday in […]

Old is New Again/Do They Allow Cut-Out Oxfords in Private Schools?

You may have resented them when you were a kid and going to school or church or some formal event in which an adult dictated most if not all of your outfit, but oxfords are chic has hell. And they’re getting even chicer. (I’m making a conscious effort to not use that word anymore.  Let’s […]

Feeling (Baby) Blue

First mint, then pink–apparently we can’t get enough of pastels.  The latest Easter egg hue to step into the spotlight is the binary of last season’s blushing pink, and in the interest of all things soft and fluffy, I approve.  Donning baby blue will make you feel as if you’re wearing a cloud–or attending an anti-climactic […]

Summer Trends to Love: Sheer Panels, High Necks, Birkenstocks(!), and More

It’s finally summer, which means less clothing and more skin–although, ironically, it also means restocking your wardrobe with all the requisite apparel. Sheer Paneling Because everyone loves playing the peekaboo game right now, but not all of us are Rihanna.   High Necks/Square Necks The perfect way to balance out the ubiquitous crop top, not […]

Uniquely You: LBDs, Personal Style, and Midnight in Paris

Maybe it’s the approach of summer and ridiculously high temps, but recently I’ve found myself being drawn to the effortless appeal of dresses. I’ve always been one for simplicity.  I like throwing on a dress and adding just a few of my own subtle details.  Though my personality may reflect otherwise, I can’t help but […]

Welcome Back, White (Even Though You Never Left)

Memorial weekend is almost upon us, which means the unofficial inauguration of summer and the celebration of all things related–hot dogs, American flags, day-drinking, and white clothing. The past year has been a year for rule-breaking, sartorially speaking, so if you’ve been wearing white all through the winter, don’t fret; Memorial weekend is simply another […]

Sandals & Ugly Feet: Together at Last

I’ve just passed the two-year mark in L.A., thus far abstaining from those things called flip-flops, something I often find to be a minor personal victory.  Except when I’m at the beach or the pool, which, having grown up on a lake, is perhaps actually less often than when I lived in Michigan. Flip flops are more […]

What the F@#% is Normcore?

When I was a freshman in college at this uppity liberal arts school in Manhattan, two kids in my dorm dressed as NYC tourists for Halloween.  They wore jorts and mom jeans with $2 I Heart NY tees, mock turtlenecks, and baseball caps.  Added to the mix were the obligatory athletic shoes, probably New Balance […]

An Ode to the Ballet Flat

Ballet flats–you are classic, quietly assured, effortlessly chic (that overused term), ladylike, and unassuming.  And comfortable to boot.  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 […]
