2018 Wardrobe Resolutions

Sale PSA: Pedro Garcia Yanni sandals, now 60% off, the “Elevated” style over the knee boot from Stuart Weitzman, now 40% off, beautiful silk lace up sandals from Alexandre Birman, now under $260 (also on sale at Nordstrom, but almost entirely sold out), and an adidas Originals hoodie, now under $50 (one of my favorite bumming around the house items, even if a friend did say I looked like an aspiring Kardashian)

This year, I vow that I will use these items more. I always feel better about myself when I do.

2. Have more fun. Even so-called “classic” items can feel stale after a while due to a certain cut, material, etc. So why not enjoy some trendy pieces? We have our whole lives to go back to classic, no? Whereas I feel like I’ve already aged out of a bunch of trends (I observe crop tops only from a very safe distance). Continue Reading

Beauty Resolutions

A reader (hi S!) recently wrote me about my 25 item wardrobe resolution for 2014, and how that might extend to skincare/beauty. This was a question that I struggled a bit to answer, because I actually already have a…
