Summertime Blues

Summertime Blues

  After 10 months of living in Alaska, I can now say I’ve lived through all of the state’s seasons: the season of snow tires and the season without (This is only kind of a joke). Memorial Day marks the official start of summer in Anchorage: construction has begun, the cruise ships are coming in […]

Turning 21 Again

The retail wonderland that is Forever 21 reminds me of my undergrad adventures at the University of Pittsburgh. Weekends were spent taking the 54C (which became the 75, right?) to Southside Works, all to visit the same place pretty much every other Pitt girl with similar tastes was shopping. I’d stock up on essentials at […]

Uncrunched: Episode 2

Uncrunched: Episode 2

Let me tell you about my first big snow in Anchorage. …wait. It hasn’t happened yet. We did get snow once and I freaked (fuh-reaked) out. Like, almost took Uber to work. But by sundown, it had all melted and all was right again in my world. Still, I survived — and bought practical shoes should […]

Cue Ensambl It provides a much-needed inspirational platform […]

About a Beau

When it comes to options within my wardrobe, the colder months of the year provide outfits galore…layering is key. But, in my fashionable opinion, the warmer months (and thank baby Jesus they’re rolling in) allow for more creativity. How can you manage to stand out when short sleeves and shorter hemlines are all you can […]

NYFW: S/S 2014

NYFW: S/S 2014

This season of New York Fashion Week was literally a non-stop span of 8 days in which I got no sleep and Instgrammed, Tweeted, and Facebooked my tail off…all in 6-inch heels, of course. My feet are totally paying the price, but the experience sparked a renewal of appreciation for designers and their craft…and an […]
