In addition to this blog, I also write a denim blog. Naturally, this means our 16-year-old son intermittently asks when I’m going to collaborate with True Religion jeans. I told him probably never because everyone knows True Religion is for rappers. It’s a great look for 2 Chains, but their marketing team probably isn’t looking for a 40+ hippie mom of two.
As I’ve gotten older, one of the best revelations I’ve had about fashion and personal style is that getting dressed doesn’t have to be entwined with your perception of your body, which is especially freeing if those thoughts sometimes take you to an unhappy place. On the contrary, what you wear can elevate you from […]
I received the email at 12:32am during a bout of insomnia on May 8. I was in the regular practice of falling asleep with our 4-year-old around 8pm, then finding myself wide awake around midnight but too brain-tired to do anything productive. So I did that thing you’re not supposed to when you can’t sleep and checked my […]
When the organizers of Femme Fair asked me to join up with them for a day of selling clothes from out closets and supporting Planned Parenthood, I was all in. I had been talking about setting up an online shop for forever. I even went so far as to take a bunch of photos. But […]
I’m so excited that Shopbop extended its end-of-season sale because that means I can finally make some time to share some of my favorite pieces with you! There’s lots of long flowiness, off-the-shoulder action, stripes, and brights for you to choose from. And there’s A LOT to choose from in this sale so, you’re welcome! […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about marble hallways lately—the weighty feeling you get when you walk down them and the decisions being made behind the closed doors that line them.
Please come shop my closet next weekend on Saturday March 18 at Femme Fair in San Francisco! I’m cleaning out my closet, like really cleaning it out, and hauling the castoffs (which may feel rejected but still deserve love, please help?) to Femme Fair to share with you all. It’s time for a major revamp, and I’m excited to start […]
Imagine trying to keep track of an energetic preschooler at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art on a rainy holiday when the outdoor spaces where kids usually can run around are closed. Now throw in Richard Serra’s enormous labyrinth (an astounding piece called Sequence created in 2006) with its 13-foot-high walls, and you’ve got a recipe for losing […]
Welp, that will teach me to write posts directly into WordPress. I broke my website and in the process lost my previous two posts so I’m attempting to rewrite this one from scratch. Here goes: I have always been uncomfortable in front of the camera. Despite having this weirdo desire to document my outfits, and despite […]
Frida has been sick since Friday. I don’t think she’s ever had a cold for this long—she usually gets better remarkably fast. But this one is hanging on, and I’m halfway ashamed to admit I sent her to school yesterday thinking she was mostly better. But when I picked her up from school, it was clear I’d been mistaken. […]
