[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 [...]
[Sam and Lavi neon button-up + Current/Elliott elephant bells + Vanessa Mooney turquoise & wood bead necklace.] The best neon. Most popular. Best couple (with turquoise). The best drape. Renaissance woman.
[Antique turquoise squash blossom necklace + Lillia's Closet robe + a rare stress-free moment.] I was raised up believing I was somehow unique / Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes / Unique in each way you can see. And now, after some thinking / I’d say I’d rather be a functioning cog in some great machinery / [...]
[Daughters of the Liberation army jacket + vintage pins + Vanessa Mooney pendant + Deena & Ozzy hat + Title Unknown dashiki t + some bellbottom cords don't remembah.] On the second day of Chris-mas, I waxed poetic about the South and channeled Lieutenant Dan, because that’s rock and roll—the intersection of grit and glory, [...]

[Finding a moment of sheer happiness alone in the new house: winding down after a party in Leifsdottir dress + Scorah Pattulo heels + Gara Danielle turquoise beads n' things.

[Brunch gear today: Eloise silk bathrobe, worn as jacket + ShopBop Bop basics dress + antique squash blossom necklace & cuff + Jeffrey Campbell booties + House of Harlow antler ring.]
[Anthropologie silk romper + Sam Edelman booties + Splendid cardi + PONO cuff, Robyn Rhodes pendant.] Getting a little sultrified in the kitchen, apparently. Which seems odd, considering I’m in a ruffly, floral one-piece.
[Urban Outfitters dashiki t-shirt you should get + maxi skirt + Miu Miu platforms + jiffy feet.] Post-work V&Ts on the porch! Can’t emphasize this enough.
Well, now I have to buy one. Or all. This is pretty rad: local jewelry designer and all around bodacious lady Rachel Albright’s Academy Jewelry dipped coral necklaces are going global via retail monolith, and furnisher of many a C+C moment, Anthropologie. There I was, just fussing around folding shirts, when I saw the sign [...]
[Illia caftan + vintage ring + Minnetonka mocassins.] Just popping out on a warm night to split a burger and a beer around the corner on Strawberry Street. I love the ombre grey on this little baby—helpful in undie-hiding efforts, too. And it makes me want to be seaside on the Mediterranean. Now! God, I [...]
