    You know I thoroughly tested it | Guest in Residence cashmere review

    “KNITWEAR DESIGNED TO LAST YEARS, NOT SEASONS.” -Guest in Residence’s mantra Maybe it’s because I’ve moved to a chilly climate, that I want to add more cashmere to my closet. Maybe it’s because no matter where you live, cashmere is always a good idea. As much as I love Gigi Hadid, celebrity “Creative Director” and…

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

    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…

  • I wore it for 6 days straight: A Naadam Cashmere Sweater Review

    I wore it for 6 days straight: A Naadam Cashmere Sweater Review

    By now, you may have heard about Naadam and their cashmere. In case you haven’t, basically their whole “thing” is basically being mindful of social impact and the environment. In that respect, Naadam’s kind of like Reformation… but with a specialization in cashmere. They do a ton of volunteer work and even more work to…

  • Worth it? My updated Reformation shoe and boot review

    Worth it? My updated Reformation shoe and boot review

    In the last four years, a lot has changed. There’s the obvious stuff, like all of 2020/21. … but then there’s the not-so-obvious stuff (to me at least). Like, Reformation has expanded even more than before. When their shoe line started in 2019 and it was like, “will this really work?” … but then it…

  • The ugliest, yet comfiest clog | A Birkenstock Boston review

    The ugliest, yet comfiest clog | A Birkenstock Boston review

    I’m pretty sure that Gucci Princetown mules was the kindling to this. … and Isabel Marant’s Mirvin shoes was the match that must have lit it up. All I know for sure is that a slew of designers (Marni, J.W. Anderson, and by the time this goes to publication, multiple others…) are putting out their…

  • I totally tested these jeans | a Levi’s Wedgie Fit Straight Jeans Review

    I totally tested these jeans | a Levi’s Wedgie Fit Straight Jeans Review

    Currently in my drawer(s) there are 27 pairs of jeans. … and this isn’t even to mention all the jeans I’ve donated over the years… or my denim shorts. From 2004 (omg remember Earnest Sewn bootcut jeans???) to 2020, a good pair of jeans will bring out your finest assets. In my top shelf drawer,…

  • Embrace comfort, stylishly | my Alaïa Shoe Review

    Embrace comfort, stylishly | my Alaïa Shoe Review

    I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum the type of “grown up” who effortlessly waltzes around wherever in high heels. Hair that’s never frizzy (ever!), sky-high heels that are (somehow) so easy to walk over subway grates in, and a chaotic, yet charming, cosmopolitan life — you know what I mean… Basically, the type of…

  • Beat the heat | Matteau dress review

    Beat the heat | Matteau dress review

    My style in Panamá has changed significantly since I first moved here in 2016. What started as, “I’ll wear leather ballet flats and jeans with a nice top and maybe some extra accessories like a belt or three necklaces! Oh, should I use my suede Proenza PS1 or my Chanel patent leather bag tonight?” Quickly…

  • Return to comfort | Hermès Chypre Sandals Review

    Return to comfort | Hermès Chypre Sandals Review

    After the last 3 years, I’m apprehensive, but excited, that “everything” is quietly, yet quickly, returning to a “new” normal. Clean t-shirts? Sounds refreshing! Pants that aren’t sweatpants? Sure, why not! Going outside with clean hair? Sign me up! … but, there’s still a part of me that craves comfort. Especially in the shoe department.…

  • I tried them & wasn’t paid to: a Levi’s Ribcage Jeans Review

    I tried them & wasn’t paid to: a Levi’s Ribcage Jeans Review

    From your dad back home in Ohio to the latest it-girl in France. … everyone wears Levi’s. Except for me, apparently. It makes sense — I’m not your dad and, as hard as I may try, I’m not a French it-girl. When I saw Levi’s Ribcage jeans though, I was like, “hmmm, let’s see if…
