Sanctus 2013

I need almost everything from the Sanctus 2013 line. Except the pants, those aren’t OK. If I had this hoodie, I could be one of those super pale aliens from Defiance for Halloween.

Dark blue bat sleeve hoodie, $115 I live in San Francisco. This means that for me spring, like most other seasons, has a great deal to do with layers. It means I am supposed to abandon my sweater collection for a few months, but it’s still chilly and foggy and windy out there. I am […]

Curvy Love from Carmakoma

Carmakoma has some of the best curvy-girl clothes I’ve seen in ages. Super cute, on-trend, flattering, and in a nice dark palette. A warning, though: when you hop over to their website and see the prices: don’t panic. It’s all in Danish Krones, which are currently about 5:1 to USD.



Vertebral inspiration from Bjorg’s line of luxury silver jewelry, available from Mila Silver.

Actual Pain

Sixth Seal Leggings, $42.00 Actual Pain is one of those websites you probably wouldn’t dig too far into if you hadn’t been told there was some awesome buried in there, because it is full of things like ball caps that say “Suds and Buds” and hoodies with growling wolves on them. But not only are […]

Swim Suit

I will probably never learn to surf. But on the odd chance that I do, I will probably require one of Tallow‘s tailed wetsuits. Because then I could surf and do magic tricks at the same time.

Shoe Review: Frye Carson Harness Ballet

Sometimes it’s the basics that are the hardest for me. Like finding a replacement for the black velvet ballet slippers the cat peed in six months ago. I needed a simple slip-on flat. Something casual and comfortable, fine with skirts or jeans, and most importantly something that could easily fit in my purse to be […]
