I’ll keep this brief. We are constantly told that we aren’t doing enough — that we should achieve more, want more, be more, get more. The truth is, you have everything you need. You are everything you need. You are doing your best right now. So print this image out and put it where you … [Read more…]
I usually wear a lot of color, but I was feeling super inspired by the challenge of how I could make a black and white outfit more interesting using pattern and texture. I think I achieved that with the “Game of Thrones” vest, jacquard ponte pants, silk scarf, and leopard print flats (details on where I bought the items below).
Lately I’ve been feeling a bit preppy, and it’s been really fun to explore this side of my fashion personality. I used to think I could only wear things that hugged my curves or showed skin, in order to feel sexy and confident.

But the reality … [Read more…]
When I wake up in the morning, one of the first things I do before getting out of bed is to decide what I’m going to wear that day. I scan my overflowing closet in my mind’s eye, carefully matching (or in my case, not matching) the pieces I think will work together. Next, my thoughts wander … [Read more…]
I like bodies. I think bodies are marvelous. I love their curious creases and billowing bellies. I adore their freckles, their moles, their rad wrinkles. I worship their lovely lumps and hefty humps. I revel in their sacredness. I am so fucking committed to loving the shit out of myself. I’ve been to the … [Read more…]
I’m a Virgo. But does my personal style match the characteristics of my zodiac sign? Let’s see… Well, I’m definitely those things, but I’d like to think there is more to me than my perfectionism. I’m also creative, generous, and humorous. I have a penchant for bright colors, bold patterns, and comfort, above all. Below … [Read more…]
