Flush to the beat of your own drum.

Hey! Things were getting a little serious around here, so I figured I’d tell y’all a quick story to lighten things up. It’s called “The Follow-Up Flush.” It hails from a small, legendary all-girls’ prep school in Richmond, VA. In an era full of Double Dare, Don Johnson and the Doobie Brothers. These were girls […]

Tighten your wig.

I’ve been having so many revelations about getting older lately. The most recent was a sort of cracked, hysterical concession. I noted that, contrary to original assumptions about my persona (psychotically competitive and perfectionist), hanging out with people younger than I am was not going to be about competing with them, and definitely not about keeping […]

When life hands you alarm clocks.

[Sparrow blanket skirt from Anthro + T by Alexander Wang classic long sleeved pocket tee + Joie booties + Warby Parker Nash glasses.] …wear clothes to work that are essentially made of blankets, then eyeball everyone all angry, like, “The hell are you doing in my bed, jerkoff?” -C.

(Creative) origin of (boring) species: killing creativity, part 2.

[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 […]

On weeding and whiling away.

[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.

Wodehouse on Wodehouse: Tough love.

[Hanging in the hammock between a Sunday shift at the retail job and hours of copywriting that needed to happen before Monday am. Don’t let my gaze fool you.

It’s Miller time!

[Lili’s Closet tiered tulle chemise + an old Anthro sweater with gossamer awesomeness + Free People Antalya coin collar.] Buds. Not pals, buds on trees. And in the words of Carol Anne, “They’re heeeerrreeee!” I gotta say. Since this time last year, things have been sort of a professional whirlwind of magical proportions. It’s an […]

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 […]

On mental furniture.

[Sigerson Morrison Accent booties via shopbop + Paige Denim Edgemont coated skinnies + Dolan crossed paths jersey tee + DANNIJO Carter necklace] Dig these super weird boots, guys. I think I’ve found fringe to almost be too implied, so am now hoarding shiny black things to wear, like a Rolling Stone. With all the Yardbirds […]

Black and blue.

[Lilka’s Closet silk robe + Rolling Stones t-shirt + Citrine by the Stones fringed collar + Luv AJThings ankle cuff.] Not one of the Stones’ best records, but everyone gets a free pass.

How the Americans live.

[Current/Elliott The Freshman t-shirt via shopbop + old cutoffs + Anthro Bijouterie layering necklace + Nike+ Fuel band, nnn!!] I was diddling around responding to emails this morning while this old movie played in the background. I’m not a TV person in that respect; having a television on without the explicit purpose of watching a movie […]

[Maeve stained glass skirt from Anthro + vintage Army t-shirt from VintageTrends.com + Club Monaco hoops (ShopBop) + Motif 99 cuff (ShopBop) + Vanessa Mooney rings and bracelets.] I have started and stopped writing this post so many times over the last 3 months. I’ve written the lines in my head in the shower in […]
