A restless spirit on an endless flight.

I’m in one of those frenzies where I get so overcome by a photo (or, in this case, eleventy-seven-hundred photos) that I want to throw away everything I own that doesn’t feel like some iteration of the look. I’m rarely interested in couture or runway anymore, but this is pretty much everything—minus a pair of […]

Chris Robinson, my style icon.

As if you already didn’t know there was something sort of wrong with me, my style icon is, in fact, most definitely a dude. Aside from Karen from Californication [that post, incidentally, gets more hits than any other post on C+C, and her character is pretty much a female version of Chris, what with the scrappy […]

Don’t think twice, it’s all right.

[Staring at Stars fringed tank + jacket, Free People shorts + Luv AJ sheet metal cuff/anklet + Shaashi necklace + vintage turquoise.] The brilliant David Gahan of Depeche Mode once said: “I still hold on to the idea that a record can really change the way I feel.” If that’s true—and I believe it is—I probably […]

“Millhouse found a hippie skeleton.”

“… and he’s freaking out.” And I immediately made a mental note at how well-accessorized it’s boho bony appendages were. Look at those turquoise accents on the beaded cuff! Index finger bauble! Damned fantastic. I hope the torso was wearing a squash blossom necklace. -Carey [Screengrab from "The Scorpion's Tale" courtesy me, Fox, and Hulu.com]

Dannijo Mahlia messenger bags.

This is exactly what I’m talking about: [Dannijo Mahlia messenger bags, handmade in Morocco, $370.] I’ve been on a perpetual hunt for an ethnic carpet bag ever since the Gucci Hysteria collection put out those tapestry bags I want to rub all over my person. Can’t be too Southwesterny, and can’t be too beat—just somewhere […]

Flannel shirts, Speak n’ Spells.

[Fortunate Sun t-shirt from Red Wolf of Saratoga Springs + Kors boots + Seven jeans I cut off + AF shirt, cologne stank included.] Sat out in the sunshine on a perfect 72-degree day. Had a couple of beers on Broadway, met up with Radigan, moved on to Cantina for more beers, and one explosive […]

Free People Fall 2010.

I mean, how could I not: [Almost Famous fur jacket, $248.] But this entire season has taken the FP brand to a new level, and not just because of a higher price point and increased visibility in higher end boutiques. I’m finding it’s all stuff I want to stock up on for Fall and Winter—in […]

Why you should get a caftan. Now.

At least, a mini one. I got this Tigerlily mini caftan from ShopBop for a trip to the islands in December. Seen here, you’d think it was the most lovely, luxurious beach cover-up there was. I challenge you to think beyond. This was inspired by a comment I got from my beloved Carrie, who said, re: […]

Reasons why I think Second Skin Style is the perfect fashion blog.

I had the immense (and fleeting) pleasure of meeting Christina at the Chictopia conference in February. I got to give her a real big hug (since I’d known from afar that she was quite possibly the coolest person I had never met) and then sadly, given the chaos of the event and Rob’s and my […]

Oh, hell yes, ShopBop.

Shamelessly appealing to my wants and needs: It’s hot and dusty, and now I want to hit the dusty. I’ve been drooling over that horseshoe print shirt from Elizabeth and James for weeks, but… probably never going to happen. Rob’s got me on a new budget, did I mention that? Actually, I volunteered, after purging […]

Ralph Lauren Fall 2010 RTW.

How I’m dressing this fall, head to toe: Ralph Lauren’s “bohemian gypsy” looks from the Fall 2010 show knocked my proverbial beanie off. Turtlenecks under long dresses? (See: Vena Cava.) Genius. It’s like Candice Bergen-cum-Stevie Nicks, who coincidentally was the soundtrack to this show. [All images courtesy style.com]

“We’re going streaking! Through the quad, and into the gymnasium!”

Bring your green hat! [Jessica Simpson Dany platforms + Loeffler Randall silk high-waisted shorts + What Goes Around Comes Around t-shirt from The Red Wolf in Saratoga + Torn by Ronny Kobo fringed suede vest + J.Crew gold knit hat + a zillion rings.] There are countless moments when I think to myself, “Man, I’m […]
