Overthinking so you don't have to.

Unboxing: Why I won’t sign up for subscription style services.

Both Le Tote and Stitch Fix kick off with style surveys to hone in on your tastes, but no algorithm could accommodate for preferring to march to the beat of my own drum.

I thought Betsey Johnson filed for bankruptcy.

Apparently the designers at Badgley Mischka, Oscar de la Renta, and Marchesa have learned nothing from the bold, blonde pixie with perennial pink eye.

An asymmetrical Perfect Sunday.

How often do you come across three-packs of earrings? It’s like some Accessories Angel knew I have exactly three lobe piercings.

Kristen Stewart, you confuse me.

Kristen Stewart is a poor representation of herself, but I like her off-duty clothing decisions and am warming up to the idea that she’s being anti-Hollywood in a way that’s kind of darkly witty.

Semiurban outfitters.

I spent Sunday under the shade of the Bazaar Bizarre tent at Maker Faire with Bill and the Flimflammery booth. While I didn’t venture away from the table too much, I did manage to up with Wall•e a bit.

Aside from the general plentifulness of humans being incredibly creative and ridiculously smart, the consumerist theme seemed to be “pointy things” – at least for me.

The graduates of style.

San Francisco fashion fun fact? Simon Ungless, the Director of the School of Fashion, introduced Burton to McQueen, and it was through that meeting that she earned an internship in the AMQ fashion house.

Double day tripping.

When it comes to traveling – arguably the ultimate test in wardrobe-editing – simple wins every time. Everything I throw into my (new Samsonite spinner!) roll-on has to interlock into at least one other outfit and share at least one characteristic with another piece. When you’re too busy to fly at leisure, all these things matter. It’s a logic puzzle and a challenge. Even before the journey before the destination, the packing is the first thing that gets me excited for every trip.
