My fashion writing print debut is finally out, and since the whole magazine is online, you can read it! It's for Desert Companion, the Nevada Public Radio magazine, and hopefully the start of a long career for me with them. I'm pretty jazzed. \o/

That's my article starting on the right page there. Open it in fullscreen to read, enjoy, and let me know what you think, dudes! ♥

friends, Romans, etc.

Life has taken a demoralizing turn this week, but the show must go on...and it's all a show.

Dress, Miu Miu. Necklace, Prada. Boots, Gap.

Awkwardly framed shots: apparently a thing I do.

This is one of my favorite dresses from my second favorite Miu Miu season, Spring/Summer 2009. Yoox still has a couple of pieces from that collection up, which have been taunting me regularly on practically every website I go to despite decookie-ing my system. Thanks a lot, internet marketing, for making things creepy.

A few of my other favorites from said season:

Conclusion: the way to my heart is, always and forever, a good print. Miu Miu tends to be one season on, one off for me, so I'm stoked on SS11. Here's hoping for something sweet as well.

dia de los madres

I'm gonna be honest with you: this is basically just a post for the sake of posting. I've been annoyed with the pictures I've been taking lately and so haven't wanted to post any of them, but! I'm a problem solver, and thus I've been talking to some local photographers about doing some TFP work which means that, joy of joys, some decently shot photos of me should be coming to this blog fairly soonish. Can I get a hallelujah?

First, new shoes paired with one of my favorite shirts I own that I can only very rarely figure out how to wear:

Top, Prada. Shorts, Theory. Shoes, Miu Miu.

A few days later I saw this picture and realized that I'd internalized it to get to the outfit posted above.

Still from Taxi Driver.

Not gonna lie, this movie is responsible for a lifelong obsession with finding the perfect pair of wedge heels. I think these are pretty damn close to ideal, but one must never rest on these things, you know? Anyway, what better style icon than a teenage hooker character? I ask you.

This next outfit is one born from pure necessity: these sandals are the only ones I own that are backless, and I recently brought out a pair of flats I don't wear very often and came out of the situation with some vicious blisters (if that's not the name of a punk band already, it should be). Also I went to the movies to see Iron Man 2, and I always have to wear jeans to the movies because otherwise I freeze to death.

Since the outfit is possibly not the world's MOST exciting ensemble, I perked it up a bit by matching my lipstick to my shoes. I'm obsessed with this lipstick - it's 203 by Make Up For Ever and it's the most perfect shade of bright fuchsia. Love, love, love.


Tank top, Piko 1988. Jeans, Rich & Skinny. Shoes, The Gap.
