WHY I’M NEWLY OBSESSED WITH OLO

I feel like I’ve been searching for my “signature scent” for, oh, I don’t know…26 years? The first frag purchase I remember—vividly—was Ralph Lauren’s Polo Blue. I asked for it for Christmas one year and doused myself in it, assured by the model’s harmless, inert gaze that I was destined to become a ‘new classic’, long before Iggy […]

SO PERFECT IT HURTS

Literally. I’m dying. Also of note: Ok, I don’t know if you ladies are as finnicky as I am about your purses, but it turns out that the WANT clutch I blogged about here is actually made in CHINA. What!? What? Hashtag double take, hashtag letdown. I thought all of WANT’s bags were de facto produced in Montreal […]

MY #NYFW PHOTO DIARY

Blah blah blah, faShIon! I have so many thoughts and stuff to talk about, but I’m exhausted—not because I was hopping from one show to the next in heels, but because work has been really demanding lately and now I just want to nap all the time. That being said, I did manage to fit […]
