I first spied the amazing Cass Clutch on Instagram and became immediately obsessed—no surprise since it so strongly evokes that chic 70s style that gets me every time, with its simple shape, buttery soft suede and rich, earthy colors. A few clicks later, I discovered that designer Debra Szidon was indeed inspired by a well-love […]
That’s possibly the most SEO unfriendly headline I’ve ever written but I cannot resist alliteration. And every time this happens I remember how much Jane Pratt hates alliteration, but I still can’t help it. Anyhoozle, everything I’m wearing here is either vintage, second hand, or has been photographed several times previously. A serious case of […]
Photos by Anna-Alexia Basile My final installment from Outside Lands this year hails from my favorite aspect of the music festival: Choco Lands. Sure, LCD Soundsystem played at every music festival across the globe, but how many had a hilly land strung with pretty lights where one could procure any number of items covered or […]
Photos by Anna Alexia Basile Was Outside Lands really four days ago already? The pain in my feet from traversing Golden Gate Park’s Polo Fields is just now subsiding and I’m still processing the fact that I enjoyed the $5 Four Barrel coffee I waited in long lines for slightly more than the free beer in the […]
Is there a trend under the sun I haven’t seen in my 48 years? Probably, yes, but it’s hard to imagine. I think I had jeans like this in grade school. The kick flare is a more recent familiarity, but a waist this high? It’s been a much longer time. You’re looking at 10-inch rise, friends. […]

Still, after giving the matter the serious thought it deserves, I am pro-dresses over pants. I believe this to be the best dress over pants look of all […]

They represented an artificiality that he mistrusted. He believed they aspired to be real boots, but were too lazy to go through with it. That their wearers were trying to […]
Photo by Kourosh Karimkhany The husband and I went to visit some friends in Geyserville this weekend, and on the way up we thought we’d maybe stop at a winery. We did not realize it was “Barrel-Tasting Weekend,” and we didn’t really know what that meant. But we found out! It meant copious wine tasting […]
I was heading out the door this weekend to a friends’ house for brunch wearing a knee-length, body-hugging dress. My husband was already getting in the car to leave when I ran back inside to change.
