The Recipe

I must be frank – I’ve been playing a lot less dress-up. Not because I’m not actually dressing up. (I make a point to do that. Every day.) It’s because there’s a lot less guesswork in reaching for my wardrobe in the morning these days. My style has crystalized into something that I hope communicates […]

Birthday Post

One particularly notable occurrence since my last birthday, as you know, is that I have my own studio- which has essentially banished all my pencil skirts and heels to live full-time in my closet while I live in hard working separates: classics, with a twist.

This birthday suit is made of a J. Crew madras blazer bought years and years ago (last seen here), a very very old tee from my mom that says “My Art Belongs to Dada”, a new pair of Levi’s high waisted jeans, my regular All Stars, and an updated pair of Ray Ban Aviators (I got a new mirrored blue tint, hey!).

You might want to peek at my previous birthday posts. Here is 25, and here is 24. Cheers!!

The Corrections

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed there’s been a recent addition to my DC life – my brother, Alex, just moved to town. He’s basically the coolest and I love living with him.

As the creator of the successful website Diehard Sport and a single guy new to the big city, a sartorial transformation was needed to usher in this next chapter.

The key to our successful quest to the Georgetown shops was speed (Alex isn’t really the “shopping for pleasure” kind of guy), honesty (“Your pants are too big. Try on these.”), and focus (no swinging by the ladies section!).

Our haul included this sweatershirt, this hooded sweatshirt, and this sweater from H&M; a sweater similar to this from Banana Republic; Levi’s 511′sdouble snap shirts, and this thermal; these Creative Recreation kicks that I want in my size; and the Clark’s Original Desert Boot in brown leather.

Alex picked up The Corrections while browsing at Kramer Books a few nights before our jaunt – I’d say the novel has really inspired him to step up his game, no?
