The Camel Coat

Things that I did and did not accomplish in 2016: DID: 1. Start blogging 2. Get CPA license 3. Remove wisdom teeth DID NOT: 1. Start investing 2. Get driver’s license 3. Buy a camel coat Though seemingly trivial, items #3 from both lists are the most significant in their category. I’ve been putting off getting my wisdom teeth removed for almost four years, proving that you can be 27 and still an awfully irresponsible adult. And since the winter began, I’ve browsed over 30 stores, both online and off, for that dang camel coat. Zara dropped the shoulders too…

The Grey Ribbed Rollneck

As I sit here reminiscing on Halloweens past, costumes adorned, parties made belligerent, I think to myself, God what happened to your youth!? Perhaps it’s because I am currently in Belgium and the American holiday isn’t as widely embraced here (or understood as an epic out-of-this-world excuse to rage for 48 hours straight), but this seems like the first year I didn’t really feel the same level of holiday energy that I used to. Please imagine Samuel L. Jackson’s voice as I say, “I’m getting too old for this shit”. Speaking of getting older, ahem – I mean aging like a…

The Pinstriped Pants

Once upon a time, I told my Vice President that his work pants made him look like ‘an Italian pimp’. I’ll wait for the jaws to drop. Here’s the thing – while I am not proud of that memory in any way, I truly said those words in jest and admiration. I LOVE pinstripe pants, I wear mine all the time! For all occasions! Perhaps an alternative word could have been used but often times my speech tends to move faster than my brain (or common sense). There’s a reason why my thought/diary/ramblings post are filed under ‘UNFILTERED’. So let’s…

The Turtleneck Tank

On Tuesdays, we wear Turtlenecks. Just kidding, but seriously nothing defines a utility item better than a well designed basic. And I’m not talking about that particular pumpkin-spice-latté kind of basic (yes, the season is already approaching).  I’m talking about a high quality, comfortable and truly ageless piece. THE UTILITY: I cannot express with words the immediate sophistication this top will bring. The fabric creates a form-fitted silhouette with clean tailored lines and automatically elongates the torso. Just watch, once you slip this piece on, you’ll be wearing endless combinations throughout the seasons and years. Featured: T by Alexander Wang / Ribbed wool turtleneck…
