Procrastinating via Googlemaps

I am so anxious about work that I was up at 3am fussing over it. But as soon as I get to the office, the desire, no, NEED to look at maps of Lake Bikal in Siberia becomes totally more important.  BTW Lake Bikal is the deepest and largest freshwater lake in the world and…

2017 is FINALLY over

  Oh boy, 2017 was a real delight. The world didn’t end but did get noticeably shittier. I have gained 5 lbs since Thanksgiving.  My house is a mess.  But we’re all still alive-ish and I got a new kitchen and like 100 new pairs of shoes this year so could be worse?  I am wearing…

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…

Summer Forever

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? 

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.

OOTD: Outlander Dreaming

If you’ve seen Outlander and were able to focus on anything other than how effing gorgeous Jamie is, you probably noticed that the clothes are also amazing. Although I prefer my Jamie without them, but whatevs. This outfit makes me feel like Claire, mixing a little 1940’s skirt and blouse action with a Versailles-worthy velvet blazer…

A Lesson in Failure

This is a longer read than usual, but stay with me friends. January is inherently a terrible month, and this one has been worse than usual.  Hence my total radio silence.  Who wants to see “OOTD:  oversized sweater and weird politically-caused pimple on cheek.” But I’ve pulled myself back from the brink before, and I…

Ootd: totally court appropriate tights! 

Getting dressed in January is not fun.  The thrill of getting out sweaters and boots evaporated weeks ago and Spring dresses feel a million years away.  Soooooo….. tights with moons and stars!  It’s the little things right? And look how cute this bow is.  I can’t see it but I know it’s back there somewhere….

Festive snow boots & work Snuggie

It took until December, but we finally got some snow here in Denver.  I was getting anxious not because I worry about devastating wildfires and drought– no– I really wanted to break in the sweet boots and break out the sweater dress (i.e work-appropriate Snuggie).

The shipping emporium / bee shoes

Between the constant incoming boxes from various online merchants and the outgoing things I sold on Poshmark and Ebay (which are unsurprisingly things from said online purchases that don’t fit or are weird), I have accumulated a lot of shipping materials.  Like, to the point that my coworkers come to my office when they need…

Ootd: target run 

  Everyone, even mega-celebrities like myself (chortle) need a place where you can get lemon extract, hair dye, and $200 of WTF random objects. Seriously, what did I just buy? Style tip:  I refuse to let a closet full of open-toe shoes lie dormant for 5 months.  Wear some opaque tights with those bad boys.  …

I am obsolete– Racked.com review

During a morning of children/ cleaning avoidance, I found a website that is basically what I want my own site to be, but it’s like a million times better.  I probably shouldn’t advertise that.  However, my ethical duty as a fashion blogger requires me to tell you to go to Racked.com immediately. There’s shopping tips,…
