    Still Worth It?: My Rag & Bone Jeans Review ft. Quality & Sizing Tips

    In 2011, Rag & Bone got my attention with their DIY ad campaigns. I was going through a massive Kings of Leon obsession and their Lily Aldridge campaign pulled me in. So carefree, real, and effortlessly rock ‘n’ roll. In five years, this denim brand has become my favourite. I’ve bought seven pairs of Rag […]

  • The only Chanel classic flap handbag review you need to read

    The only Chanel classic flap handbag review you need to read

    From high school graduation (pre-absurd price hikes) to graduating college (mid-price hikes) and turning 30 (just before the ridiculous price increase), a Chanel Classic Handbag has marked hallmarks in my life.
 … but when they start at $8,200 USD, I cannot say that you need a Chanel flap bag. Actually, with all of Chanel’s crazy […]

  • Mini, but mighty | Loewe Flamenco Bag Review

    Mini, but mighty | Loewe Flamenco Bag Review

    During lockdown, my then-boyfriend/now-husband asked what I thought about buying a ranch in Montana and I was like “uhhh…” … but then I was like “well, I always wanted to take up gardening.” By “take up gardening,” I mean buy potted flowers, realise I did not dig the hole big enough, pathetically plant them, try […]

  • Shake your hips | RIXO dress SIZING and quality review

    Shake your hips | RIXO dress SIZING and quality review

    I’ve been thinking a lot about how to start my RIXO dress review… I’ve been deliberating writing about what makes an A+ summer dress. I’ve been wavering about starting it with a ramble about who’s behind the label. … but, this is the best way to kick off this review:

  • Is it TOO small? | APC Demi Lune Mini bag review

    Is it TOO small? | APC Demi Lune Mini bag review

    Band of Outsiders and Marc by Marc Jacobs came and went… but, one brand from that delectable 2005-2008 era holds true in our heart and remains in stores: Atelier de Production et de Création. … i.e., A.P.C. So, over a decade later, it makes sense that I’d finally get A.P.C.’s signature bag.

  • So NOT a jewelry person, but… | Mateo jewelry review

    So NOT a jewelry person, but… | Mateo jewelry review

    My gold-plated hoops and vintage earrings might say otherwise, but… I’m not a jewelry person. Sure, I’ll get a Tiffany bangle engraved for my mother as a Christmas gift or, along with my husband, surprise my sister with a Cartier Love bracelet after she officiated our wedding. However, for me, personally? Expensive jewelry is too […]

    Go on, pants me | a Frame Le Cut Off denim shorts review

    Do you ever feel like sometimes your denim cut-offs are too casual? Like, you need something more pulled together? Anyways, sometimes I want to look like my life is in order (and that apparently starts by getting non-frayed shorts). With no tears or rips, Frame’s “Le Cutoff” cuffed denim shorts should be the ultimate not […]

  • The ultimate Chanel Ballet Flats review: Including sizing & 2022 prices

    The ultimate Chanel Ballet Flats review: Including sizing & 2022 prices

    With Chanel’s infamous price hikes, Chanel ballet flats are seriously expensive. Considering that in 2008, they cost $550 USD, it’s actually kind of nuts… actually, a 54% price increase for a pair of shoes is all the nuts (and especially includes “premium” cashews). … but here’s something even nuttier, in 2008 I skipped my high […]

    6 pairs of pumps & 7 pieces of advice: A Christian Louboutin Heels Review

    Click clack, click clack, click clack Who the hell is wearing heels? … and also, what kinda heels are those? The New York Times says a pair of Christian Louboutin heels are “shorthand for luxury, fabulosity and sex appeal, a kind of synecdoche of success.” … but, are these red bottomed shoes really worth it?

    Debunking THE Instagram shoe | Chanel Dad Sandals review

    From the OTT “new Bottega” bunch, the bisou Paris vintage crowd, the Scandi norm-core pack, even the #CottageCore crowd, everyone on Instagram dresses the same. While I will moan and complain about how Instagram ruined personal style, I still got sucked in and bought a pair of the most Instagrammy ~influencer~ shoes that transcends every […]
