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. […]
Do you ever just get completely OBSESSED with hunting online for that perfect whatever (pair of jeans, sweater, shoes, whatever), and later feel sad about how many hours you’ve sunk down that rabbit hole? Just me? Well, I became obsessed with finding a particular style of clogs when, during the holidays, we decided they’d be my husband’s Christmas […]
This is the best outfit I’ve ever worn. Not just because of what it looks like—amazingly over the top, colorful, in your face and so eighties that I’m way ahead on my Pat Benetar Halloween costume—but because of the story behind it and how it made me feel to wear it on New Years Day.Here’s the […]
My brain has been focused elsewhere this week in a way I never could have predicted. It’s a long story for another time, but the reality is, it’s Thursday and everything I hoped to get done this week has to happen today and tomorrow. So the above photo is apt—I am racing around to get my stuff done before the […]
This year kind of sucked in a lot of ways. And while I’m really into rainbows and light, a dark room feels extremely comforting right now. Lately I’m attracted to black walls, dark wood, deep velvets and the like. And I guess I’m not the only one, because look at all these gorgeous dark rooms […]
Sequins certainly have their place. I love a little sparkle now and again. But the bling tends to get a little cliche around holiday time, don’t you think? So I’m always looking for new ways to look festive in a non-obvious way. One idea is to hang around in front of some really pretty, colorful stained […]
I love an off-shoulder top. I’m cool with my shoulder and clavicle. And I was about to say that as I get older, I can’t say that about many body parts, but to be honest, the parts I’ve historically been insecure about are pretty much the same now as they were 20 years ago.
On Saturday, don’t miss My Little Pop Up, especially if you have littles! This Sunday November 20, Peace Industry (makers of beautiful Iranian felted wool rugs) is hosting a Holiday Craft Fair, featuring a few of my favorites including Petel.
