I love where I live.

Sidebar: Right when I sealed the deal to work from home full-time again, I went a little bonkers shopping for new threads for home office life. I stocked up on sheer, floaty maxi dresses and deleted all the pencil skirts and silky trousers I’d added to my wish lists in recent months. I love this dress; […]

In and around Scott’s Addition.

[Meow!]   Just a perfect little not-hateful Sunday with Rob, riding our bikes around before a storm broke, stoppin for popsicles at King of Pops, and generally sayin’ “whattup” to this incredible city we live in. [Deets for the cheap seats: Free People Arosa dress + Sigerson Morrison April sandals, again + Rag & Bone […]

What’s in a name + a quick ode.

I revealed on the C+C Facebook recently that I kind of hate the living s*$t out of this blog’s name. Ha! Sorry, man. But it could not be further from my style. Not the caftan part, just the whole thing: the kind of lame-duck humor to it, the too-easy pairing, the alliteration… the family-friendly obviousness […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dashiki will see you now.

  After alienating half the breathing population last week, I thought I’d scale things back with a little post. About a shirt. I pitched my old legit stained dashiki (because I am not legit enough for pit rings that are not my own) and traded it in for this little number from Free People. It’s […]

Wodehouse on Wodehouse: You need some new catch phrases.

[Antique mother of pearl collar + Free People plaid sequin yoke button down + Current/Elliott stiletto jeans in leopard + some shit kickers.] “There is no surer foundation for a beautiful friendship than a mutual taste in literature.” -P.G. Wodehouse You guys I think it’s time we talk about P.G. Wodehouse. Brilliant English comedic author, […]

Hot water.

[Sam + Lavi button up + Free People trapeze slip + Sam Edelman boots + Vanessa Mooney vial necklace] Thought I’d push something out into the void, Internet! Here’s a little taste of RVA for you… a few things I managed to do & see around the hood between stretches of near-constant work for the […]

Happy day of birth, Roberto!

[Daughters of the Liberation jacket + Moyna sequined vest + AG legging jeans + Sam Edelman boots + Sam & Lavi blouse + Anthro feather necklace + Dannijo bag. Most important is the beer: the beer is Saison DuPont. Write that down.] Took my number one dude down to the river for a pre-birthday dinner […]

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 […]
