Freja Beha Erichsen is one of those people I keep going back to.Tousled waves. Bangs that have a mind of their own. Just the right amount of frizz. A shade of …

Do Your Denims Match?

matchydenim

Four years ago, when double-denim first came “back” the rule was to make sure your denims had a high contrast. Meaning: If your jeans are dark denim, your shirt must be light denim. These days, there are no rules with denim. You can mix your denims. And you can match your denims. It’s all pretty much whatever works. Lately, though, …

How I Almost Became an Anti-Vaxxer

vaccination

Over the weekend I read the article, “Putting Us All at Risk for Measles” which documented the outbreaks of the once eradicated disease among educated, affluent populations. Why? Some parents are opting out of immunizations. When we think of the anti-vaxxer movement, images of celebrity airheads pop up (Jenny McCarthy anyone?) Emotions range from eye rolling to outrage. Who ARE …

Self Tanner Review: Jergens Natural Glow Express: Before and After Pics

Years ago I was burned by the self tanner. Metaphorically burned, physically I was orange, streaky and splotchy. Nubia had mentioned she had a similar experience and felt like a ‘walking cheeto.’ Hence my reluctance to indulge in self tanners.

Who knows what happened… I haven’t been wearing as much vintage as I used to. Maybe it’s the prices, maybe a few experiences having to make repairs, but whatever it was, it’s been a while since I have purchased a vintage dress.

Today’s Attire: Spring Neutrals

jbrand_gryphon

It may not be official yet, but I’m really feeling spring in the air. Yesterday, taking photos for the eat, sleep, denim blog I chucked away my winter coats and threw on my Gryphon Trench coat that I’ve been saving for the new season. Actually, I’ve been going through this whole style upheaval, one because my neighborhood is painfully well-dressed, …

Goodbye to Panty Lines and Whale Tails

The other day I wrote about hair and makeup innovations. Today I’ve got a fabulous fashion and health innovation to share: Commandos. It’s a pretty genius idea. They basically took the only part we need from women’s underwear, the cotton crotch, and put some adhesive on it so it adheres to the inside of pants. With Commandos, there’s no need to wear undies. It looks a lot better – no panty lines or “whale tails” – and it’s even good for our health, because it allows for better, ahem, airflow. Gynecologist Dr. Karen Lee calls the patches “a brilliant invention!”
