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 […]

Trees grow all over the streets.

[Mara Hoffman Frida Cocoon Coverup, via shopbop + TR Joey cutoffs + Led Zeppelin tshirt + Sam Edelman Louies.] A simple formula works best for most instances. It’s an easy thing to forget, but boiling it down—boiling everything down—it works. Shorts, a t-shirt, a bath robe-ish sort of mechanism… friends, a dock, a bottle of […]

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 […]

Good times at RVA’s new Shockoe Denim.

While Rob was still out making wine in Oregon, I invited myself to a little opening shindig at Shockoe Denim to scope the goods—and as an excuse to wear my maribou vest out in public. They’re a new custom denim lab here in Richmond, VA and the space alone was an inspiration. Ran into some […]

Sad day in The Fan today.

[The porch next door.] You can choose how close—or how separated—you are with your neighbors. That’s the funny thing about living in a place like the Fan: win, lose, or draw, your neighbors define your living experience. [Lenny, in Apt 3 above, with the elephant feet and the horrible taste in women/music/hours of sleep; I […]

Take a penny, leave a penny.

As promised, a post of epic proportions, summing up any activity not directly work-related over the last month or so. Things have been so hectic! (Smile.) But even as I wake up most mornings in a sheer panic wondering how I will possibly get through to the end of the day (I’m very dramatic in […]

Scuffletown Park.

So many reasons to love the Fan. And this was an early frontrunner. Scuffletown Park has a pretty interesting little history—best explained in the comment section of this Fan of the Fan post—and it’s becoming a part of ours now, too. It seems to draw out something different in an afternoon solely intended for sun […]

On near misses and bulls’ horns.

[Been wearing this exact combo pretty much nonstop for a month. Kind of gross. Urban Outfitters t-shirt + AG jeans + Kors boots + Banana jacket.] I’m always wary of airing any dirty laundry here. I’ve been called out on it before and it felt like an ugly accusation; it’s my podium, after all. It’s […]

Reparations: Chop Suey’s good faith.

[Chop Suey Books in Carytown, Richmond, VA.] The more chances you have to be around people—strangers, in particular—the more opportunities you have to be proven right about them. Or wrong, however you view the glass. I tend to assume every person is both fundamentally kind, and trustworthy. Within certain parameters, of course. Just as likely […]

Brand, God put that rock there for a purpose.

[Anthropologie silk skirt + JCrew men's belt + Kors boots + JCrew tee + Moth (Anthro) grandpa cardigan + vintage pendant.] Grey, chilly days spent watching old episodes of Thumbs Up! on ViceTV and painting tiny canvases with Spirited Away characters—my friend is studying all weekend and he’s in need of some soot ball work […]

There goes the fear.

[Daughters of the Revolution dress + Yoox cropped contour sweater (Anthro) + Kors boots + vintage Squash blossom necklace.] So here I am sitting on the porch. Feeling present. There’s a crew of guys repairing a roof from Irene across the way, tree tops are looking a little singed with fall colors, the downy furs […]
