    What I bought this week: Byredo Roll-On Perfume Oil

    Item(s): Byredo Roll-On Perfume Oil in Mojave Ghost… plus, I asked for a free sample of Bal D’Afrique. Reason: Byredo’s Tree House candle is in my top 3 re-buy candles. It makes sense (scents?), since Byredo began their brand with the best way for us to literally burn our money — candles. Tree House is […]

    What I wore this week: Lots of meals out

    Tuesday: Manicure and pedicure appointment at Spa St. James. After that dismal pedicure in Panamá, where it got all smudged (likely because the top coat was old/gummy), this time I brought my own base polish, nail polishes, and top coat. For whatever reason (let’s be honest, it was probably because of some Kate Moss article), […]

    All the fit & sizing info you need | Re/Done denim shorts reviews

    To me, white denim = preppy. … and not in a good ironic-preppy Vampire Weekend way. Off-white denim though? Well, the gloves are off and (all my) wisdom teeth are out. I’m stronger now, I’m ready for the house off-white denim. … but, like Vampire Weekend’s single, “Step,” I can’t do it alone. Enter: Re/Done’s […]

    Nothing’s perfect, but… | my Madewell Perfect Jean Shorts review

    From Acne to Re/Done, with some pitstops in between, my efforts have been up and down. It’s like the past 5 years have revolved around finding the perfect pair of denim shorts. Some look great, but pinch my crotch. Others don’t look great, and, well, is there a point in going on about those? So, […]

    Gracefully cute dresses | Three Graces London sizing review

    See, I have this problem where Selena Gomez has unwittingly become someone whose dresses I steal. … not in like the Bling Ring way. I’m not like breaking into houses to raid celebrities’ closets — it’s more of an Ariana Grande, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it,” metaphorical stealing […]

    What I wore this week: First week(-ish) in Montreal!

    Wednesday: First day in Montreal! I haven’t been back to my home city in almost 10 years and things have changed. Instead of the grocery store or something practical, the first shop I went to was “Holt Renfrew Ogilvy,” Montreal’s luxury department store… Ogilvy’s used to be a high-end department store on De La Montagne […]

    Things I Would Buy: If I was part of the 1800’s London social season

    Dearest readers, it is with regret that this author informs you that they were late to the party ball. However, it is with good reason that they write to you now. Bridgerton has wholly captured this author’s heart. If this was the Regency period, and social season, this is what this author would buy to […]
