The New York-based fashion photographer Mei Tao has an enviable look that is both casual and just the right amount of fashion-y. She has an uncanny knack for pairing classics with a bit of whimsy—as well as for the great sample sale or big-box store find. What she’s wearing right now: A painter’s t-shirt from […]


Our friend Lindsay picked up these sneakers at H&M the other week, and we love the way they look. Perfect for jazzing up a pair of jeans without having to wear a heel. They’re $50 and you can buy them online if you don’t have an H&M near you. We haven’t heard how comfortable they […]

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 […]

I recently had the very good fortune to travel to New York City for the annual James Beard Foundation’s award ceremony. In my industry, it is the penultimate recognition, something often referred to as “the Oscars of the food world.” Secretly, I prefer to think of the Oscars as “the James Beard awards of the […]


I got these pants from Lisette L a while back, and I have to say, I was super skeptical: they were positioned as stretch pants that gave you a flat stomach. I tried them on, but I didn’t wear them for months. I was worried that I would get all the way to work, and then […]


Our office has concrete floors—extremely tough on the feet—so many of us have had to become far more familiar with supportive footwear than we ever imagined we would be. Rory turned us all on to the custom fitted clogs from Clogmaster, which everyone who gets them, swears by. We love the way they look worn […]

cynthia body

We love how our friend Cynthia paired a wedge Chukka boot with baggy chinos (nicely peg-rolled) .  The wedge makes the chukka a little more feminine and less casual. We think they’d look great as well with skinny jeans.  She got hers at L.L. Bean for a song, before they sold out in every single […]


Our friend and colleague Jenny is a sensible shoe wearer. For her, comfort is king. So when we saw her wearing these sexy shoes all day long in the office, we had to believe her that they are truly comfortable (she swears it’s the wedge that makes them that way). They’re from the new line […]

clara striped bean

This striped shirt from LL Bean is one of my favorite things. I’ve had mine for about 10 years (the white with navy stripes) and my daughter just got a used one in blue with red stripes at a Salvation Army in Maine.  Sadly they aren’t producing it for kids right now, so if you […]
