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.
It’s the tail end of Bay Area Dance Week, but it’s not too late to get in on one of the many free dance classes offered throughout the weekend. Salsa, ballroom, afro-cuban modern, hula, bandaloop, Bollywood and many more classes in pretty much every part of the Bay Area are still open the rest of this […]
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’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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
