Not careless, quick and unlucky.

[Da Nang silk pants + T by Alexander Wang LS pocket tee + Dannijo pendant.] For someone with a sometimes crippling proclivity toward perfectionism, I am a total mess. I didn’t really know to classify this anywhere other than in the “bad luck” category until I met Rob, who pointed out that when it comes […]

Wodehouse on Wodehouse: To each his own, beware the white mess jacket.

[Anthropologie Botanic blazer + trusted holey Alexander Wang t-shirt + B-Low The Belt Bellbottom Blues belt, completely obsessed + Report heels + Level 99 trousers.] Listen. I never intended this blog to include photos of myself. No, I’m being honest. It didn’t even occur to me to add actual photos at first—let alone photos of […]

Carey Wodehouse Corks and Caftans cords Burberry booties

Taper jean girl.

[J.Crew cords + Alexander Wang t-shirt + Gap chambray shirt + Burberry booties.] I meant what I said about these cords transforming my wardrobe. This is such a departure from the usual flowy, fringey, flared-leg stuff I gravitate toward. It generated some serious strutting. And that’s not just because I find these booties really, really […]

T by Alexander Wang t-shirt dress.

T by Alexander Wang is like the Screaming Eagle of t-shirt lines: cool, classic, expensive, never goes on sale, but of inimitable quality.
