One Perfect Shot: Style & Scene Retrospective, “Prime”

This is really less of a look at wardrobe (less than, say, my Karen Retrospective) and more of a total love letter to the director of Prime—an unsung gem of a film. Outing myself as a total psycho here. I haven’t watched this movie often, but for the few times I have over these 9 […]

Oregon 2014: Photo Journal Part I

2014 could mark the end of an era, or perhaps just the beginning of new things. 3 years, 4 harvests, each so unique I sometimes  feel like the only common thread is that I spent them all with Winemaker Michael Lundeen at Walnut City Wineworks. 2011 was my debut vintage, as well as a difficult harvest, and looking […]

Pinot Noir: 2 for around $20

Jean-Paul Brun · 2012 · Bourgogne · Terres Dorees · Beaujolais, France  2012 is going to be a scant vintage in Burgundy to say the least. It was the first half of the year that really set the tone. The weather was, well, shit. It was cold, wet and punctuated by a weak, drawn out flowering, spoty fruit set, frosts […]

Hey, tough guy: a letter to myself.

  [Which We Want flannel from Need/Supply + All Saints Assembly leather jacket + Rag & Bone hat + PAIGE Hoxton jeans + Sigerson Morrison booties + Vanessa Mooney spike necklace + Warby Parker Nash glasses.] Dear Carey, ages 6-16: Yo. I say ‘Yo,’ because I know this to be your salutation of choice. You […]

When years become more than a sum of days.

  [Joie Elaine cross-strap heels + Dolce Vita shorts + Vanessa Mooney choker + UO lace cami + Cloth & Stone denim shirt.] What’s your inside age? Your “feel” age? I’ve had pals say they’re forever 17. I’ve had some pine for 20. 30 was my favorite, but most of the time, if I had […]

If it ain’t broke, find excuses to fix it: killing creativity, p.4

[Isabel Marant clogs + Madewell Forecast sweatshirt + Vanessa Mooney concha necklace + Rag & Bone hat.] There are these moments my mom called “character-building moments.” I sat in the empty office. The desk was messy—a cozy, friendly messy, not like the sterile corporate offices I’d grown up around. A nameplate read: “Filmé,” a phonetic […]

Life en iPhone: August, 2014.

[Summer staples: black manicures + Need/Supply finger cuffs + Dolce Vita shorts + Rag & Bone hat + Joie booties + Isabel Marant things far, far out of my budget.] Neither out of a sense of being overcome by one’s good looks nor habit (vanity maybe, though), I went the way of Cher Horowitz and […]

Montsecano · 2012 · Pinot Noir · Casablanca Valley, Chile

I like forward thinking in winemaking. I like winemakers that separate themselves from the pack on just the hope that maybe somebody will understand and appreciate what they’re trying to do. And I believe that’s exactly what André Ostertag is doing here. So here’s the breakdown… André’s family domaine and roots are in Alsace, he trained in […]

Fall five.

[RBW 23 Zipper jeans + Vanessa Mooney Nebulous Statement necklace + Heather maxi dress + Cheap Monday Sheet blouse from Need/Supply + Luela cardigan from Need/Supply.] While we’re waiting for me to cobble together some pictures of me to accompany the next creative series post, let’s talk about fall. It’s my favorite season. But not for […]

Non-criminal creative abandonment: killing creativity, p. 3

[Free People Tattered Up shred slip + Madigan cardigan + Free People coin necklace.] I’m trying to decide why, at this point in my life, I’m so upset I haven’t ended up doing something more creative. The only thing I can reason, outside of general regret, is that something inside me needs to get out. You […]

(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 […]

The path of most resistance: killing creativity, part 1.

[Hard to see, but insanely good Free People eyelash lace slip in black + a fringed navy suede jacket from Anthro.] This is the first in a series I’ve written on the subject of creativity, broken up somewhat chronologically. Bear with me, and please share your thoughts, as it could help shape the direction of […]
