    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 no one is admitting | A Prada Loafers Sizing Review

    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

    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

    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.

  • Birkenstock Arizona EVA review | THE waterproof sandal?

    Birkenstock Arizona EVA review | THE waterproof sandal?

    This all started because I got caught in the rain a few times. … and by a few times, I mean like a lot of times. See, I never really felt a strong desire for a pair of Birkenstock Arizona sandals. No matter how hard I try, I’ll never be Kate Moss in the 90’s. […]

  • Free your feet | Freedom Moses sandals sizing review

    Free your feet | Freedom Moses sandals sizing review

    OK, so I saw these Freedom Moses sandals on Shopbop and thought they were called… Freedom MOOSE. After that, I promptly forgot about them — like, who wants rubber sandals with fake buckles? Fast forward to my vacation in Montreal, where it rained for, like, 1/4 of the trip, and my Stan Smiths sprung a […]

    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

    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, […]
