adventure time

April 4, 2011

if i ever end up on russian hill (it’s very rare), i make a point of stopping into one of my favorite sf boutiques, anica. this time around i met jamie, who mans the store on sundays, and her friend, erin, of the adventure school, in town from seattle. they recognized me from the...

i’m mossy

March 19, 2011

wow, i think miss moss is my new favorite blog. the content wanders from science to fashion to literature to art and personal histories (like we’re trying for here!) with a remarkable eye for style and beauty. diana pulls images from various archives and flickrs, but it’s really the way she packages information, drawing lines...

mrs. o’s style

March 18, 2011

finally, a woman in the white house with some style! other than jackie o, americans have a pretty pathetic roster of fashionable first ladies. not that the president’s wife should only be concerned with what she looks like…but michelle’s bold sense of style has seriously changed the reputation of the first lady without sacrificing...

marco polo

March 13, 2011

shebreathes is one of those blogs that’s always ahead of the curve, featuring lesser-known designers whose collections are much more refreshing than the same prada and marni and alexander wang that is perpetuated throughout the web ad nauseum. she recently posted the s/s 2011 collection from italian designer, marco corso, an unbelievable celebration of color...

fall 2011 nyfw!

February 17, 2011

while new york is blowing up with models and editors and parties for fashion week, i’m home sick eating it all up from my bed thanks to the world wide web. seems like mountaineering, metallics, the 1940s (long locks, mid-length & long skirts), tribal, greys, oranges, grandma-chic and print mixing are going to be...

los angeles: part 2

February 2, 2011

it’s quite odd to be thinking about being in LA a few weeks ago when your front porch is completely buried in a snowdrift! i’m writing from chicago and figured if i’m snowed in, i might as well think of somewhere warm…so here goes part 2 of our trip to la. (don’t miss part...

los angeles: part 1

January 22, 2011

ever since i was kid, i harbored this midwestern dream of moving to southern california, becoming a marine biologist (save the whales!) having a surfer boyfriend and just chilling on the beach. but since living in the bay area, i’ve developed a slightly more jaded view of all things so-cal: hollywood, smog, porn, fake...

LA shopping rules

January 7, 2011

i don’t want to hate on the bay area, but the shopping is infinitely better in LA. sorry folks, it’s the honest truth! take iko iko for example- an inconspicuous storefront across from an exotic fish aquarium stocked with wabi-sabi japanese housewares, locally made clothing, jewelry, ceramics, vintage books, fabric, and other covetable objects....
