sweats

My friend’s little son currently refuses to wear anything with a proper waistband, he only wants what he affectionately calls “soft pants.” I can relate. While I have strict policies for myself about these things– I work from home and have firsthand experience on what a slippery slope stretchy pants can be– I bent the rules […]


uniqlo leather pants

Yesterday our friend Jen was wearing these great faux leather pants. (But even from a couple of feet away I could have sworn they were leather.) I was sure she was going to say they came from designer, and cost a pretty penny, but no, she got them at Uniqlo. $29.90. They are a perfect […]


maca bracelets

Last night I had dinner with my friend Maca, who had some nice wrist bling action going on. I like how she had two wide bracelets (one a cuff), and then some beaded ones she had made in between. A nice variation of the groupings that we love…


becca camo madewell

Our friend Becca was wearing these Madewell jeans the other day. They’re camo, but because of their cut, they look feminine, with just that right amount of tomboy. If these are your flavor, they are on sale right now for $109. I know because I just ordered them.



opener

Some people just have a knack for layering bracelets and cords on their wrists. And while I myself feel self-conscious beyond two bracelets, I love the way it looks. This week I took a picture of my friend Ayesha’s wrist on Monday (see above), and then yesterday, she had a whole new look going on […]


thakoon dress

Our friend Jen Miller was wearing this great dress yesterday at work. It was the kind of dress that worked perfectly as a sophisticated office summer dress, but could totally work in spring and fall too. I was expecting it to be from some Marni sample sale or some such–it sure looked quality/expensive. But no, […]


cole haan 1

Yesterday I ran into Karen, a mom I know from school, who had on these super flattering shoes from Cole Haan. She told us they’re so comfortable that she is planning to get them in more colors in case they discontinue the style. Although she did say that the nude color does elongate the leg…which […]


owen embarrassed

It’s totally okay that my ten year-old son is embarrassed by me. It’s the normal state of the universe. It’s, like, my job to embarrass him. But somehow, I don’t know, I thought maybe because I’m an urban mom whose work has me staying relatively current, I would maybe embarrass him less. All the things […]


ayesha clog

Our friend Ayesha just got these sandal/clogs from No. 6. She is the style director at Martha Stewart Living, which means she spends much of her day propping for shoots (hoofing it around the city), and when she’s in the office, walking around on our concrete floors. It’s pretty much an obsession amongst all of […]


hanger

It’s hard to imagine that a hanger could make you so happy, but there it is. Their velvety wrap prevents silky shirts and dresses from slipping into the closet abyss and their slim profile translates to more real estate for clothes. A set of 50 for $29 on Amazon.


beckymomuniform

We ran into our friend Becky Lewis on the way to work the other day and had to snap a quick photo of her effortlessly chic uniform: Maria Cornejo long sweater closed with a kilt pin over a Uniqlo shirt, black leggings and Belgian loafers. And of course, the pup doesn’t hurt the Parisian look […]
