Thank You Universe for Making Pull-On Pants Become a Thing. And for the Bounty of Awesome Tee Shirts.

As many of you know I’ve made it my purpose in life to spread the gospel of elastic waist pants. They are a revelation people! Finding pants where the waist and hips AND thighs are a perfect match for your one in a million body (with a price that matches your budget) could drive one […]

Modern Free Spirit

The only way I can do hippie (which is usually all I want to do) is 50/50. or 25/75. Like, skinny jeans with an earthy (how many more boho/hippie adjectives can one woman come up with at this time of night?) sweater and crystal pendant. It’s all about balanced proportions. Now can we talk about […]

Clothing created for a specific purpose delights me – I love the challenge of styling a look within the specific apparel requirements an activity presents.  Am I agreeing to the endless skateboarding classes because I fancy skinny jeans and Vans not to mention the crossover possibility of snowboarding ensembles for my son?

It’s All In The Details: Ode To A Sweatshirt.

Why am I writing about a sweatshirt from of all places Lululemon? I don’t really love Lululemon because it’s everywhere. I also dislike logos-even tiny ones. However, I’m conflicted because I do like their emphasis on color, comfort and eye catching details and how they keep churning out new merch. Which brings me to my point: good […]

Part II: Goodbye Boring Black Wool Coat! Let Color,Texture And Details Be Your Guide To Chic And Interesting Outerwear.

As promised, I present to you an assortment of chic and interesting outerwear that is so much more statement making than the above mentioned Boring Black Wool number. And thankfully less stratospherically priced (and maybe even more wearable) then the inspirational coats highlighted in Part I. I love all the different silhouettes, subtle details and texture, […]
