[Isabel Marant clogs + Madewell Forecast sweatshirt + Vanessa Mooney concha necklace + Rag & Bone hat.] There are these moments my mom called “character-building moments.” I sat in the ...
[RBW 23 Zipper jeans + Vanessa Mooney Nebulous Statement necklace + Heather maxi dress + Cheap Monday Sheet blouse from Need/Supply + Luela cardigan from Need/Supply.] While we’re waiting for me to cobble together some pictures of me to accompany the next creative series post, let’s talk about fall. It’s my favorite season. But not for […]
If I had to put all my money on a song never making me feel bad, it’d be this one. “The flames and smoke climbed out of every windowAnd disappeared with everything that you held dearAnd you shed not a single tear for the things that you didn’t need‘Cause you knew you were finally free.” […]
[Free People Tattered Up shred slip + Madigan cardigan + Free People coin necklace.] I’m trying to decide why, at this point in my life, I’m so upset I haven’t ended up doing something more creative. The only thing I can reason, outside of general regret, is that something inside me needs to get out. You […]
There are precious few things as perfectly excellent as sitting in front of your record player and putting 100% of your focus into what’s playing, nothing else. From last Sunday; got a wild hair and ripped the Stones all day with the bass cranked up. Love the clear vinyl reissue; I have both new and […]
[That slip again! I live in it. And sassy, out-of-character Belle by Sigerson Morrison shoes. Stopping by to visit the Bo for post-work libations. Definitely not cocoon sweater weather here in RVA, but that's what air conditioning bills are for.] Remember No-Face? In an inspiring animé film about a brave little girl defying the odds […]
[Hard to see, but insanely good Free People eyelash lace slip in black + a fringed navy suede jacket from Anthro.] This is the first in a series I’ve written on the subject of creativity, broken up somewhat chronologically. Bear with me, and please share your thoughts, as it could help shape the direction of […]
From a geographical standpoint, the Jura is not all that complicated. Just four regional appellations comprise this north/south swath east of Burgundy: Arbois, Côtes du Jura, Château-Chalon, and L’Etoile. Straight forward enough, but that is about where the simplicity ends. The wines, on the other hand, can be confusing. All in one breath, they can be trendy and unknown, […]
August 10: spinning Last Tango in Paris score. Because a bloated Marlon Brando is still Marlon Brando. Sort of. -C.
This wine has been my imaginary summer jam. I picture rolling it out at just about every occasion, for no reason other than we should all be drinking more good, decade-old Muscadet. Unfortunately, at around 30 bucks, it’s a bit too pricey to pour with Vinho Verde-like irreverence. On the other hand, though, it’s a hand-crafted, 10-year-old […]
[Dolan Pieced Petal sweatshirt + Rag & Bone zipper cutoffs + Urban Outfitters hat + flutternyc cuff.] Adjusting remarkably well to having about 10% of the workload that I had this time last month. Sort of scary. In the absence of answering emails and never taking lunch breaks and stuff, I’ve transferred most of my […]
[Joie Katrine blouse + Dolce Vita shorts + Joie Dalton suede booties + Rag & Bone hat + Vanessa Mooney] If I had my druthers, every Sunday would be mild and sunny, and every Monday would be quiet and grey. I’m a sucker for serendipitous transitions, because they rarely happen. I’d like to dedicate a […]
[Joie Violette blouse + my fat pants.] I like how in movies the whimpering, panicky old broad always gets slapped in the face. “Get a HOLD of yourself, you daft cow!” There’s a reason it’s become a cliche: because it works. If I’m not talking about paranoia related to procreation, I guess I’m talking about […]
