    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

    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

    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 […]

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

    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

    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

    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 […]
