Make Work Trips a Little Easier

It’s hard when one spouse goes on a work trip. It’s hard for the spouse traveling (read: homesickness) and it’s arguably harder for the spouse who stays home (read: 24-hour rockstar solo parent time). I travel for work reasons pretty regularly, and yet – somehow – I am still pretty terrible at prepping for trips. […]


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 […]


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, […]


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 […]


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 […]


pants

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 […]




mascara

I’m getting a lot of inspiration from my mom this week. As I mentioned in the post about the face moisturizing oil, my mom is one of those beauty junkies who tries everything–from the super high end to the drug store stuff. After bemoaning the drying up of various expensive mascaras, she was thrilled that […]

Full disclosure, the impetus to go into a JCPenney’s recently was because of the Martha Stewart housewares lines that launches in May. I went to check out the changes that Ron Johnson & Co, the genius behind the Apple stores, had made to JCP. While things are still in transition, I was amazed to see […]
