Totally Clueless


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

The past few years I’ve been pretty basic with my Halloween costumes (Audrey Hepburn, Catwoman, flapper) but this year I decided to mix it up a little. My friends Jenni, Ripley and I decided on a Clueless themed costume. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past twenty years, Clueless is a 1995 movie about a silly and spoiled, but very fashionable girl (see here, and here).

totallycluelessSince Cher is basically my spirit animal (that closet system was totally my idea first) it was a natural choice.

totallyclueless6“He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship?”


totallyclueless5Cher: “Would you call me selfish?”
Dee: “Not to your face.”

Can you say friendship?

totallyclueless4Dee: “Dude, what’s wrong? You suffering from buyer’s remorse or something?”

Cher: “God no, nothing like that.”

totallyclueless3“Cher, I don’t want to do this anymore. And my buns don’t feel nothin’ like steel.”

Happy Halloween! I hope you all have a spooky, fun day full of fabulous costumes and guilt free chocolate.

Paper or Plastic?


, , , , , , , , , ,

I bought this skirt a year ago and it’s been sitting in my closet ever since. There’s not much that can sartorially scare me (hello, leather catsuit) but this full length plastic skirt had me intimidated. It’s straight plastic. Not pleather, not plastic masquerading as anything else, plastic. I bought it because it was an interesting texture and I liked the juxtaposition between such a tacky fabric and a ladylike silhouette.

paperorplastic2I can’t get enough of this scarf lately. It’s so cozy and the emerald gives everything in my wardrobe an extra dose of class.

Bite Me


, , , , , , , , ,

As a result of Halloween fast approaching and my friends bullying me into watching Buffy I’ve had a vampire inspired shoot on the brain lately. I didn’t want to go all out (fangs aren’t so flattering) but I took inspiration from the dark and seductive vibe that vampires are always associated with. And for the record I’m talking Stoker, Ossenfelder, and Le Fanu, not Stephanie Meyer.

The Clarins Counter on Wellness


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

A few weeks ago I attended an event at the Clarins counter with a focus on wellness. Three wellness experts spoke on various topics including mental health, physical heath, and staying motivated. The panel was followed by a juice tasting and Clarins’ signature facials. As someone who subsists almost solely off coffee, chocolate, and stress, the event was a great way to relax and remember that taking care of myself is key.

Stay-in Season


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week has been rainy and chilly just about every day, a sure sign of the winter to come. When the weather gets like this I like to take advantage by snuggling up with a good book. Sometimes a lazy, rainy day in with Nabokov is just what I need to get back on my feet.


stayinseason2I chose an outfit inspired by those rainy day read-ins. This silky slip dress gives you the comfort of wearing pajamas all day but with a little added sex appeal. I paired it with a big, cozy sweater for the snuggle effect.

New England Fall


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve traveled quite a bit and seen a lot of amazing things, but nothing quite compares to New England in the fall. As a born-and-bred New Englander the fall is my favorite time of year. The air gets crisp, the sweaters come out, the leaves change color, and everything just feels alive.

newenglandfallI went apple picking this past weekend and it made me so nostalgic for my childhood in New Hampshire. Moments when I miss New Hampshire are extraordinarily rare as I thrive off the city, but something about this weather makes me miss rolling around in leaf piles and hiking through the foliage.


newenglandfall2My wardrobe has been updated a little since my last apple picking experience (circa age 11), but I stuck with my staple New England flannel. To vamp it up a little I paired it with my signature leather shorts.
