Ask the HM Hivemind: Plain Black Leggings

Plain Black Leggings. They are a staple of the modern wardrobe. But I’ve had some trouble finding some that met my criteria: Genuinely opaque (seriously, legging makers. If I can see the color in my thigh tattoo, you’re doing it wrong). Warm enough for winter wear. I only live in San Francisco, it’s not like […]

Flocked and Loaded

McQ by Alexander McQueen Flocked Paisley Dress, $636.64 We don’t generally feel the need to cover every trend. Who cares if Fall is all about tiger face sweatshirts? That doesn’t make them a good idea. But I’m liking this flocking thing. Blame the house of McQueen. Just Cavalli and Balenciaga hopped on the flock wagon, too, […]

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.  


Etsy find: Jenfashion

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.
