I’d Like to Be a Fashion Blogger, But I’m Mostly Wearing Sweatpants

photo 1 (2)

There used to be a time when I would dress up every day. Get up at 5:30, go to the gym, curl my hair. Put on makeup. Put on one outfit. Take it off. Try another. Still not right, try on something else. Arrrgh! Nothing looks GOOD, and now all my clothes are on the floor, it’s now 8:15, I’m half …

Objects Without Meaning: The Brand That Doesn’t Pretend, Yet, Still Profound

021

Have you ever read a fashion label’s about page? Or a fashion show review? Often sounding more like those little placards you’ll find next to a painting in a museum, the language used in the fashion industry is heady, full of rag jargon. I get it.

samuji

It may be the middle of summer, but if you’re anything like me, you might already be setting your eyes (and your wish list) to fall. Recently, I came across this Finnish brand, Samuji, which has exactly the look I’ve been coveting this year. Classic, futuristic, simple, rich in texture and silhouettes, this three-year-old label shares very much the direction …

11 American Fashion Inventions We Just Cannot Live Without

When it comes to thinking of “American” fashion, most of us just think of American designers. That the real innovators of fashion somehow all go to Paris or Milan, maybe even London. The truth is, beyond design, Americans have also innovated the fashion industry by inventing things we cannot live without. No, not the iPhone. I’m talking things like jeans. …

Timeless Style: Twelve 20th Century Outfits That Totally Work Today

marilyn

Since my return to blogging, I’ve been rather fixated on the idea of “Timeless” in part because I’m tired of chasing trends. What’s going to be the next “It” bag, should I run out and buy those Birkenstocks because everyone has them. What is “me” and what is the fashion hamster wheel? Well, the quest to define “Timeless” style cannot …
