    Things I Would Buy: If I was going to a Taylor Swift concert

    Last week was fraught with drama surrounding Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour. The Verified Fan presale felt like the Hunger Games (with nosebleed tickets akin to Peta’s pity bread tossed at Katniss in the rain), and the Capital One presale was like a WWE fight (except it wasn’t supposed to be rigged)… Then the week […]

  • What I bought this week: Glossier You Candle

    What I bought this week: Glossier You Candle

    Item(s): You Candle from Glossier. Reason: Just FYI, this would have also covered the Glossier Holiday Kits, but I ordered the You candle two weeks before the Holiday Kits came out… and my order for their Holiday Kits has been cancelled FIVE times and their customer service STILL hasn’t gotten back to me about how […]

  • What I bought this week: A.P.C. x Jane Birkin T-Shirt

    What I bought this week: A.P.C. x Jane Birkin T-Shirt

    Item(s): A.P.C. x Jane Birkin London t-shirt, in white. Reason: … because Jane Birkin, of course. Since it’s a seasonal item (or “collaboration”) and not a standard t-shirt you can buy at any time, I didn’t include it in my white t-shirt challenge. I don’t love buying expensive t-shirts… and this APC x Jane Birkin […]

  • Things I Would Buy: If I had $800 lying around to spend on a Jane Birkin-inspired dress dupe

    Things I Would Buy: If I had $800 lying around to spend on a Jane Birkin-inspired dress dupe

    Item(s): Aimee dress from Dôen. Reason(s): Jane Birkin wore this spectacular, shiny, and tiered maxi dress in the early 70’s while dancing with her daughter. When I saw the photos, over 40 years later, I was mesmerized. It took 10 years since I first saw the photos to figure out that Jane’s mesmerizing dress was […]

    What I bought this week: MOTHER crochet top, because…

    Item(s): MOTHER The Open Back Tank Top Reason: … is this enough of a reason? View this post on Instagram A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) Seriously though, I love MOTHER denim and the 1970’s vibe of Taylor Swift’s new album, Midnights. … I also have a feeling that I am going to love […]

  • Miu Miu Ballet Flats Sizing Review: tbh, not worth it

    Miu Miu Ballet Flats Sizing Review: tbh, not worth it

    Right now ballet flats seem to be a “new” trend for fashion magazines to cover. … namely Miu Miu ballet flats. There’s something about Miu Miu’s (relatively) “ground breaking” micro skirts that launched hundreds (OK, that’s a hyperbole) of articles about the item they were paired with: Delicate ballet flats. They aren’t the then-classic Miu […]

  • What I bought this week: We Are Doré

    What I bought this week: We Are Doré

    Item(s): Le Trio from We Are Doré, which includes… Le Baume, Le Cleanser, and La Crème. Reason: I enjoyed Garance Doré’s blog (when it was a thing) and her book (still in publication). … and I also really enjoy French pharmacies. It’s true — if I’m in France or a French off-shoot, like St. Barths, […]

  • What I bought this week: Guppyfriend Washing Bag

    What I bought this week: Guppyfriend Washing Bag

    Item(s): Guppyfriend Washing Bag Reason: … because microplastics are in synthetic clothing and that’s not OK! Seriously, I didn’t know this before. … but, it’s true. When you throw synthetic fibre clothing in the washing machine (at whatever temperature) microplastics/fibres are released and then the grey water from our washing machines basically is drained into […]

    How to Shop Vintage Online… and actually find what you’re looking for

    After my first “real” fast fashion purchase, that dress from the recent Zara campaign with Kate Moss, I felt conflicted. There’s something about fast fashion that feels complicated. It’s a beautiful garment with a 70’s Goddess flare, but something feels off. 
… probably because it’s made from 62% acetate (semi-synthetic fibre) and 38% silk (natural […]

  • What I bought this week: Maelove Skincare

    What I bought this week: Maelove Skincare

    Item(s): Maelove The One Cream and Glow Maker Antioxidant Serum. Reason: I heard that Maelove’s Glow Maker serum is a solid dupe for Skinceuticals Vitamin C serum (~$170 USD) and since I’m at the bottom of the Skinceuticals bottle, I figured I should try Maelove’s next. Similar to Skinceuticals’ serum, I’m not entirely sure that […]
