I kinda wish I had found these at the beginning of the summer, but I think you can still rock them into the colder months (I’m thinking knee-highs and ribbed tights). I’ve been searching for some Dr. Scholl’s Health sandals that old ladies wear to the grocery store…Trippen‘s Modern Wood collection is like the barely [...]
It’s almost that time for people to put away the flip flops (at least I hope they will) and start wearing proper footwear. This morning I thought I smelled autumn in the air, but maybe I was lying to myself. Still, better get a head start on your sock game, as socks and tights with [...]
Round wire glasses + groovy minidress + muscles + faraway gaze + formica tabletop + barren tree branches and afternoon sunlight = hot parents! Style inspiration from your parents…it’s even better when they keep the clothes and hand them down to you.

So I went to Dana Thomas’ book signing yesterday at Politics and Prose for her book Deluxe, even though I haven’t read the book. Hey, I was hoping for some good discussion!

Heya, my flip flop rant got picked by Express’ Blog Log. But misprinted. I stand by my rant though!
Let’s reminisce for a moment on the old school…I’m not one to live in the past, but it’s hard out there for a female MC nowadays–not that it was easier in the 80s, but at least you didn’t have to dress like a porn star to make it. MC Lyte So stoked on the mustard [...]
Why do people wear flip flops in the rain? It’s like a death wish. Everything is slippery, your feet get all wet, muddy and gross, and usually the flip flops just fly off your feet.

On my way home from work on Friday, I stumbled across this sassy, sparkling, bottle of Hou Hou Shu Sparkling Sake (by Marumoto Brewery, founded way back at the end of the Edo period) at Connecticut Avenue Liquors in Dupont Circle. In the aesthetic sense, I am a sucker for Sanrio, origami papers, and anything [...]

But more importantly, what would you wear in this amazing scenery? From Misha de Ridder’s Wilderness. I kind of see myself in an elvin-like wardrobe, lots of woolen thrift store scarves and riding boots.
Boys loves t-shirts…they’re like 50% of their wardrobe! But where to find the totally-original-super-limited-edition shirt that no one else will have at the club?
