Currently debating: made-to-order boots

I’ve been aware of the existence of customizable boots for a while, but now that fall/winter are coming (cue meme photo of Ned Stark) I’ve been searching again for boots that will actually fit me – which are surprisingly difficult to find. The problem is a lot of retailers don’t list the calf circumference of their boots, and I unfortunately don’t have access to a ton of department stores to try things on. So naturally I’ve turned to the internet, and two  ...

Fashion Friday: Cate & Chloe VIP

I’ve finally got most of my wardrobe sorted out after my epic clothes haul a couple weeks ago. The jeans are still at the tailor’s so they can be converted to ‘fun size’ (as one of my friends so eloquently put it), and I’m antsy to get them back and actually wear them.

My Winter Uniform

A couple weeks ago I talked about a few things that I’d love to have in my winter wardrobe, but that’s just a little different than what I actually wear on a daily basis in the colder months. I work in an office, but the dress is pretty much college-student casual. I could probably get away with yoga pants if I wanted, but I refuse. Still, comfort rules the day so I’ve ended up with a sort of ‘uniform’ – very handy because I can put it together quickly  ...

Wardrobe Wants

I’m no stranger to hanging around the house in fuschia lipstick and yoga pants, but I always feel better if I dress up my makeup with an outfit that doesn’t look like I slept in it. During the summer my wardrobe is based on whatever will cause the least amount of sweat, but now that cool weather is here I can have a little more fun with clothing. A quick closet audit has informed me that I’m missing quite a few fall wardrobe staples. Chambray shirt – Does this count  ...
