    Loeffler Randall Balet Flats Review: They’re out of step

    When I was 4, I dropped out of jazz ballet school after 2 seasons. My heart just wasn’t in it. … maybe it was something about being similar to an organized recreational sport. … or, maybe if there’d been tutus, I’d be on stage at Lincoln Center — actually, I probably wouldn’t; I’m too old […]

    Sold out? Read this first, then ask Gab

    If you read this blog, you know how much I love sourcing something “hard to get” myself. From Chanel Jade nail polish in 2009 to the 2022 Loewe x Spirited Away collaboration, the thrill of finding something that’s “hard to get” by myself is unbeatable. … until, I was looking for a gift for my […]

    What’s up with a $1,500+ nylon bag? A Prada Nylon Bag Review

    “There’s a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Skechers, but I love my Prada backpack.” -Bianca Stratford, 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) This is likely one of the most overused quotes in my life and on this site. However, you know as well as I do that it’s not only […]

  • Are They Worth It? My MIKOH Bikini Reviews ft. Sizing Tips

    Are They Worth It? My MIKOH Bikini Reviews ft. Sizing Tips

    After I first stepped foot off the plane in Anguilla, ready to call it home for the foreseeable future, I realised that there was one thing I did not plan for: Solid swimwear. My sister raved about MIKOH bikinis and, well, I do everything she says, so I bought a few too. … and so, […]

  • Zimmermann Wrap Dress Review: They make getting dressed easy

    Zimmermann Wrap Dress Review: They make getting dressed easy

    When it comes to dressing, I live off easy dresses that make getting dressed, well, easy. A simple garment, like an elevated dress, does the majority of the heavy lifting. … which is ideal for those of us who don’t want to deal with, like, 13 different bells & whistles to “make” an outfit. So, […]

  • Rag & Bone Denim Shorts Review: Ugh…

    Rag & Bone Denim Shorts Review: Ugh…

    There’s this pair of Rag & Bone denim short shorts, the Mila shorts in “Moss,” that I love. If they were a child, they’d be entering grade 4 — like, they’re around 10 years old. Rag & Bone discontinued the Mila, but I still bought a “reserve” pair on eBay, just in case my first […]

  • 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.

    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 […]
