Hello, out there! Happy holiday weekend to you all! First things first, the winner of the Tea Collection giveaway is Leah. Congratulations, Leah! You’ll be hearing from me shortly. Also, I have a new post up at Babble about baby gym classes. If you have done your time at these type of classes, let’s reminisce [...]
I’ve been a Tea Collection customer for years. In fact, both of my children wore the lotus print layette when they were teeny tiny newborns. So when the folks at Tea Collection offered me a gift certificate to use towards their newest kids clothes, I didn’t think twice. Flores de Calabaza Top Playa Plaid Shirt [...]
Uh, hello there. In other news: 1) I have a new What in the Whoorld post up at Babble. It’s about the new AAP car seat recommendations, and how rear-facing car seats turn my child into an asshole. (Although, let’s be honest. I don’t think it’s the car seat. See above.) After reading some of [...]
Oh J. Crew, your new yellow arrivals have my head spinning. Want. It. All.
I stumbled upon this little gem last week. Buttons as earring holders. Buttons as EARRING HOLDERS! Am I the last to know about this genius idea? If you are afflicted with the Can’t Keep A Pair Of Earrings Together Disorder, you must employ this quick and easy remedy. No more fishing around for a lone [...]
I’m still coming off our holiday weekend pool party bender, so I definitely have bikinis on the brain. I love me some bikinis! Like Jora, I’m a huge proponent of the string bikini. I wear both the black one and the plaid one shown above on a near constant basis. (Well, you know, when I’m [...]
I am primarily a wearer of flats. They’re comfortable, chic, and perfect for my lifestyle. This is not to say, however, that I don’t appreciate a nice pair of heels. I just usually save those for evenings out because, for whatever reason, I equate casual, daytime clothing worn with high-heeled shoes to be a bit [...]
Allow me to introduce my beach bag. I guess I should really call it my beach/pool/park/outdoor activity bag since it’s used all the time in all of those places. Roomy enough to fit everything you need, but not too bulky to schlep around, this bad boy is my warm weather fave, and I’ve used it [...]
Take a look around your room. Peek in your closet. Does a certain color rule the roost? Green has long been my favorite color, but I’ve definitely noticed a trend over the past decade. Most of my big ticket, beads-of-sweat-forming-on-the-brow-as-I-pull-out-my-wallet purchases have been in the bright grassy green shade that I love so much. Color [...]
I love Marion Cotillard. How darling does she look in this still from Woody Allen’s movie, Midnight in Paris? The bob, the sailor collar, the PERFECT NEUTRAL T-STRAPS. (Speaking of neutral t-straps, today’s the last day to enter the $100 Shopbop giveaway! Do it!) If D didn’t struggle with MIN (Movie-Induced Narcolepsy), I would be [...]
I don’t write much about Dustin’s design firm, but I wanted to share some work he just completed for the 2011 Legends of La Cienega. What is Legends of La Cienega? In their own words: Legends of La Cienega is an annual celebration of design that brings together VIPs and tastemakers from the worlds of [...]
When it comes to shoes and most accessories, I’m very partial to gold, tan and silver. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve rationalized buying yet another pair of gold sandals. (Goes with everything! Neutral, but with a twist! I JUST NEED THEM, OKAY???) In fact, I attempted putting together a quick photo [...]
I just returned from my dream mecca, Madewell, where I tried on the most darling pair of high-waist, wide-leg jeans. Oh my goodness, so flattering. SO FLATTERING. (From the front.) Straight up perfect spring weather Ali MacGraw in Love Story kick ass lightweight denim. Although, they look a little lighter in person. Think chambray. Are [...]

I need to get myself a WordPress comment counting plugin because 734 comments? DAMN. Without further ado, the winner of the gorgeous Clava Zipper Tote is… #355, Lisa! Congratulations, Lisa! Your bag will be on the way shortly.
