Iris!

Iril Apfel, you make me less scared of aging every time I see you! I’ve enjoyed Mrs. Apfel’s interviews and photos (via Manrepeller, Vogue, etc.), then I was reminded of the documentary, “Iris,” produced this year by director Albert Maysles (2015). If you love fashion, flair, wit, confidence, the cutest near centennial, and old couples in love, this documentary is for you.…

Nike Love

Long ago, I resigned myself to not being eligible to purchase shoes online because at size 5.5-6, shoes are a) not available or b) inevitably too big, too wide, too bulky anyway. I haven’t quite figured out how photos of shoes online translate to real-life wear apparently. My orders so far have been mainly failed missions resulting in clown feet…

Something about Marc…

Indeed there IS something about Marc that always appeals to me. Maybe it’s his playful design aesthetic, his rejection of gender “rules,” or the fact that he’s one fine looking 52 year old man. Probably all of the above. I was first introduced to Marc’s story through a bio video which I can’t even remember the source of (I’ll have…

The Jumpsuit

So JUMPSUITS! What do you think? Are you a fan of the full body drapery or do you flee in the face of these onesies? I think it’s safe to say that while 10, even 5 years ago we would have probably LOL’d at the suggested wardrobe addition, now we are more open minded about the chic comfort that is…

Black Light

It should be rather clear at this point that I LOVE SUMMER. Specifically, I love mid to upper 70s, the warmth of the sun, the refreshment of the breeze, the sparkle of water, the bloom of floral, the savory scent of herbs…I can keep going–you got it? Fine, fine… Point being, it’s a good time of year that elicits much…

Double Take

This past weekend, the Grammy’s offered not only awards for music industry stars, but also original productions of its own for audience enjoyment. While the musical performances are the first to come to mind when speaking of productions that revel riveted fans, they are not the only source of entertainment in a show like the Grammy’s. There are many more things to take…

Let’s talk about being cold.

Despite being bred, born, and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have never fully acclimatized to winter weather outside of the womb. It may be my smaller size, but when faced with the temperatures of November, December, January, and February, no amount of holiday cheer can keep the warmth from immediately being stolen from me by Jack Frost. It makes…

Vogue’s Advent Calendar

It could be called a little sacrilegious, but these are damn fine diamonds. Vogue’s Advent Calendar is showcasing new, jeweled earrings every day from December 1 through Christmas Day. For each date, one can click on the box and see the surprise item revealed. The upcoming days are not available, and thus the tantalizing begins. It’s a lookbook that inspires…
