Oh, I’m a mean old daddy, but you like me: The story of “Carey.”

[Current/Elliott jeans + HTC belt + Truly Madly Deeply tank + Free People kimono + Vanessa Mooney jams.] The other day Rob and I were pouring beers in the kitchen, watching a series of vids from the new KOL documentary, Talihina Sky. Rob—who plays guitar and sings better than he’ll ever give himself credit for—loves […]

Oh, you’re a mean old daddy, but I like you.

Happy Saturday! It’s bloody beautiful here and and I’ve got on my finest silver and we’re high on sunshine. Enjoy some Joni and have a fantastic weekend. [Joni Mitchell, "Carey"] -Carey + Rob

Breakfast blunders.

I was checking my e-mail on the couch when I heard this really pathetic whimper come from the kitchen. “I know that sound,” I thought. I’d been aware, moments earlier, of Rob working on a masterpiece bowl of shredded wheat: arranging the squares, breaking them in half, pouring the milk, tapping the cinnamon out of the bottle, […]

Good wine gone bad. Updated and Reposted!

3 weeks, 3 great wine stores, 3 different bottles from 2 different countries—all bad. After a string of bad bottles from some of the best wine stores I know, I thought it was time for a repost. Up until now, most of the turned bottles I’ve opened have come from auction sites and been relatively […]

Dad had it right.

Whenever I’m sending my mom pictures of some groovy pair of boots or coat I’ve got my eye on, she breaks my heart by saying, “Oh, I had a pair of those,” or “You know I had a coat just like that.” This always strikes me for one of two reasons: first, I definitely have […]

Die goldene gans.

My brother eyed my feet under the lunch table. “Where’d you get those cool boots?” “A store.” “Ok, but aren’t they riding boots? Did you start horseback riding or something?” I rolled my eyes. Everyone knows I have to go to the bathroom immediately every time I get on horseback. Not taking it up anytime […]

Caftan: Diane von Furstenberg

Woo! This is a busy caftan. I’ve been periodically peeping this one since it came out in April or so. She really nailed it this year; I’m sort of resentful give the current stay-tus of my accounts. Whatevs. It’s sort of sheer and everywhere is showing it with a bikini underneath but sorry, kiddies, you […]

A fine feline frenzy.

Far be it from me to take cues on dressing from a Jacksonville Jaguars game: flowing mullets, bikini tops under denim vests, jean shorts, more tank tops than you can burp a draft beer at, and leopard, leopard, leopard. But it is, afterall, my hometown. So as a former season-ticket holder, you can bet I […]

Update: bespectacled!

Success! I went back to the RayBan dating pool and found a real keeper.  Thanks, Lens Crafters! (Great sale going on until April 4th, by the way.)

Caftan: Diane von Furstenberg

I’ve been working all day, using the bench under the window as a big desk. This has afforded me a great view of the really terrible weather. Praise Buddha that the precipitation isn’t frozen, at the very least. Inclement weather does, and should, make you think about vacations to warm destinations. A visit to see my friend […]

Fringe science.

I’ve always been a fan of fringe. And alliteration. Of which you’re about to read a lot. When fringe is added to the equation in the right amounts (and the right quality), it imparts an unrivaled bohemian chic. However, if it looks like you bought it at a craft show, then you too will look like […]
