    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

    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

    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.

    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 […]

    What no one is admitting | A Prada Loafers Sizing Review

    This isn’t my first time at the rodeo. … maybe I shouldn’t be using a Western rodeo as an expression for my experience with Prada’s Italian loafers, but you can’t teach an old dog horse new tricks idioms. It’s true though, in 2009 my dad bought me my first pair of Prada loafers since I […]

    Will it make me sleep better? A Lunya Silk Pajamas Review

    I don’t remember how or when I heard about Lunya. … it was probably during one of my (many) silk slip dress searches. Lunya’s thing is high quality pajamas — like high quality nice pajamas. Every night I just throw on a beat up blink-182 t-shirt to sleep — hoping for dreams where I’m front […]

    Celine Sunglasses Review ft. Triomphe, Baby Audrey vs. Audrey, and more

    Are you team Phoebe or team Hedi? I am team “I-See-Philostans’-points-but-still-like-Hedi-a-lot.” … but when it comes to Céline’s Celine’s sunglasses, it doesn’t even matter. While all three of my Celine sunglasses were purchased under Phoebe’s tenure, Hedi continues to put out the Baby Audreys and some killer cat eye shades. Since they haven’t changed under […]

    Telfar Bag Review: I (somehow) got the small & medium bags

    I hate when people caption their photos on Instagram, or whatever the latest social media is, with… “You can’t sit with us.” 1- That’s not even the best quote from Mean Girls.2- Why do you want to make other people feel bad? Honestly, that caption feels noxious and obnoxious.
