    Monday: Since I’m absolutely incapable of lying, I have to admit that this is an older outfit from a few weeks ago from when I went to scope out new Chanel shoes with my mum. Still worth sharing since these SLVRLAKE London jeans are A+… love an off-white pair of jeans, although I was in […]

  • Chanel Heart Bag review: In which I bare my heart

    Chanel heart bag review

    “Responsible” is a word that gets thrown around much too much once you hit 30. … but, unlike an extra candle on your birthday cake, “responsibility” is hard to quantify. Sure, there are numbers in your 401k plan or Roth IRA account that you can count up, but you can’t really measure “responsibility.” It’s like, […]

    Isabel Marant nowles boots review

    Joining the ranks of Julius Caesar (and Joni Mitchell Leonard Cohen*), I am also as constant as the Northern Star. … at least when it comes to my brand loyalty for “nice” boots.
