double dose of denim

0 Permalink 0

  this not-quite-summer, not-quite fall weather is getting to me. while i'd like to dress for "fantasy fall" -the fall depicted in romcoms where my oversized sweater and suede booties are the perfect defense against the chilly sub 65-degree weather, the truth is, most days i wake up and it still feels like summer. so i'm ...

three sweater styles you should own

2 Permalink 7

  despite the fact that san diego is not experiencing the coveted "sweater weather" these days, i can't stop thinking about (or buying) cozy knits. in my opinion, sweaters are like pairs of nice underwear -you can never really have too many. as a collector myself, i've narrowed it down to three styles i believe everyone ...

  if memory serves me correctly, i got my ears pierced in fifth grade. at the time it felt like a very rite-of-passage thing to do (oh and along with most of america, i'd assume, i went to claires, naturally). while i'm definitely more of a stud-girl, i have worn many a chandelier/statement earring in my ...

cute sweatshirts you can wear out of the house

  we all have one. that cozy, overworn, oversized, possibly stained (just being honest) sweatshirt. maybe it's a hoodie from our college alma mater, maybe you borrowed it (and never returned it) from a significant other, or maybe it was once new but has seen the inside of the washing machine more times than you can count and ...

  i recently took inventory of my hat collection and donated a couple styles that no longer suited me. after years of trial and error, i have found that wide-brimmed styles balance out my ample dome, baseball caps should only be purchased from the men's department, and i can wear a beanie, as long as it's ...

my favorite striped tees
