What was the best store in the early 90’s? Where you could get rad tote bags, floral dresses, and pre-shredded tee-shirts- and where everything said ‘ESPIRT.” The last one closed near me in high school but I still have fond memories. And then, as if conjured by the elves said to inhabit the area, there…
Grocery store is not code for ‘wear sweatpants’
My rants against the slobbification of America are legendary. Flip flops are for the beach. Fleece pants are for being in your house with a cold. Oversized cartoon tee shirts are for never. see? Buying Halloween swag and some milk while not looking like I live in a van. Blouse, Ella Moss, velvet blazer I’ve…
We don’t wear gowns enough and other deep thoughts
today is my 10th wedding anniversary so I pulled the dress out of storage and wore it to pick the husband up at the airport. 1. We don’t wear gowns enough. Gowns are fucking great. 2. My dress still fits #winning 3. If you go into the bathroom at Wendy’s near the airport to pee…
Why you should shop all the time
First of all, I’ve spent the last two months curled in fetal position due to work stress. Not good. While I’ve still be dressing like a Boss, I just didn’t have it in me to take pics and I looked like a sad Zombie Mom/Lawyer. Grim shit. But it’s fall! And tights!! This delightful tweed…
I ‘accidentally ‘ set my OOO message to read I would be back in April. Oh and I bought this rad hat at the grocery store because beauty’s where you find it right?
WTF (What the Fashion?) is this?
Where have I been? Well, between the new season of British Bake Off, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and my actual job which I sometimes have to do, I have not been tending to the the Blog. So today I have something very special for you. I give you…… What the Fashion! I’ve decided to share…
After many long, angry months, the kitchen is done. I baked some bread. Then I ate the bread. Totally worth it.
TAKE ALL MY MONEY
During my weekly troll of favorite sites, I came across the most insane, perfect, WTF is it skirt at Jcrew.com It’s like a western-Gilded Age- cake topper with pink polka dot tulle. If I had $1000 laying around, this would be obvious best use of said money.
Funday w shorties
Easter is the perfect day for matching Victoria Beckham for Target dresses, with matching rose for momma. I used to mercilessly mock the IDEA of matching outfits, but when shown these dresses with freaking bunnies on the collars, I gave in. Totally worth it.
You can’t be sad on a swing
Everything is still generally terrible (don’t read the news, ever) but it’s spring and there’s flowers and a swing set. This flamenco-dancer sparkle day skirt doesn’t hurt either….
Heels + grass = suburban Godzilla lady
After work (yes I wore a cardigan with the dress in court, I’m not a heathen!) I was in my yard looking for tulips like one does. My new Alexander Wang heels are now muddy but I have this awesome shot where I look like I’m going to go eat some villagers.
Spring break 2017 is a far cry from, say, Spring Break 2000. Both involved some real weird shit- the 2000 version was a beer bong and possibly homicidal pizza delivery man ( long story). In 2017, we have a visit to Meow Wolf, an multiverse art installation with eyeball trees and refrigerators that lead to…
