    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 […]

    Every detail including latest prices & fit | Chanel Ballet Flats review

    With Chanel’s infamous price hikes, Chanel ballet flats have become seriously expensive. Considering that in 2008, they cost $550 USD, it’s actually kind of nuts… actually, a 45% price increase for a pair of shoes is all the kinds of nuts. … but here’s something even nuttier, in 2008 I skipped my high school prom […]

    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

    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 […]

  • They can just Falke off | a Falke Tights Review

    They can just Falke off | a Falke Tights Review

    OK, so I ordered Falke tights from Shopbop and they arrived with a hole in them. Kinda weird and definitely annoying, right? What’s more strange and even more frustrating is Shopbop would only refund me if I sent them back. So, I did something I’m not proud of and asked the customer service rep to […]

  • Tights that’ll keep you in check | a SPANX tights review

    Tights that’ll keep you in check | a SPANX tights review

    If you’re like me, winter ushers a chilly snow cloud over your days… From accidentally eating dinner at 5:00pm (because it’s dark out) to generally feeling blergh (because you ate dinner at 5), winter sucks. … and if you’re like me, wearing tights that compress your legs & abdomen is winter’s only silver lining. After […]

    La grande bellezza | Realisation Par Monica Dress Review

    Note: Yuki here — I’d like to introduce you to my friend, Emerald Liu, who lives in Belgium. Emerald & I are constantly chatting about our shared (and might I say excellent) taste in music, literature, and fashion. As a massive fan of her own writing, I’m humbled that Emerald is graciously sharing her thoughts […]

  • Super big, but super flattering | AGOLDE Jeans review

    Super big, but super flattering | AGOLDE Jeans review

    After my AGOLDE Parker shorts, I was totally sold on AGOLDE jeans. Those shorts were perfect. … but AGOLDE’s sizing? Super inconsistent. During Shopbop’s bi-annual sale, the lure of silver AGOLDE Nico jeans reeled me faster than any dazzling bobby.

  • Vintage without the hassle | AGOLDE Parker Shorts Review

    Vintage without the hassle | AGOLDE Parker Shorts Review

    In 2010, I had this pair of vintage Levi’s denim shorts from What Goes Around Comes Around — I loved them. Side note: Don’t you think people sound so precious when they say their jeans are vintage Levi’s? — it’s like “oh, yes, you’re clever and unique with shorts you can’t readily buy anywhere.” … […]

  • I hate how expensive they are | SLVRLAKE Denim Review

    I hate how expensive they are | SLVRLAKE Denim Review

    SLVRLAKE must have come up while you were shopping for jeans online. … and, like me, you probably dismissed them as being an unjustified overpriced denim line. Why spend $349 on a pair of SLVRLAKE jeans when you can get some Levi’s for $98? Similar to Bianca Stratford explaining the difference between Sketchers and a […]
