Fashion means: “It’s my expression, who I am. Fashion is important to me. What you wear is who you are. Not totally, but it’s your characteristics, what you like and don’t like.” Why I love: First of all, I love the ‘90s-ness of the knotted denim shirt. The skirt provides a burst of color, and […]
I’m thankful that no one is relying on me. I’m thankful I’m not responsible for someone else’s survival other than my own. I’m thankful I’m not forced to live in less than ideal locations or conditions, work at a job that underpays and takes advantage of me or stay in an unhealthy or abusive relationship […]
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all (wo)men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness (in bed).” — Sex Toy Declaration of Independence OK, so there isn’t really a Sex Toy Declaration of Independence, […]
Dear Vered, How do I get my awesome boyfriend to quit smoking? I don’t need to tell him it’s disgusting, he hates that he smokes, yet the smoking cessation kit he ordered sits unopened on the kitchen counter. So far, I’ve gotten him to quit smoking indoors (even in his own house, woo!) and chew […]
Over the past few months (and especially the last few weeks) my family’s dinner table conversation has often centered on politics. And while it’s hard to manage a toddler’s myriad questions while dishing the dirt on the latest affront to my reproductive rights and simultaneously dishing out curried chicken and rice, I managed. It’s amazing […]
Fashion means: “Self-expression.” Why I love: This look is so sophisticated. Green and red pair beautifully, especially racing green and a bright red, like she’s rocking. Add in the Burberry-esque scarf, a white shirt and simple flats, and the look spells confident, professional elegance.
A special piece: “I got a jacket from Akira before it got big, and everywhere I go someone comments on it.” Why I love: I love the pairing of a nice sweater and necklace with a no-nonsense Army-style vest and leather messenger bag. Plus, strappy boots will always be a thing for me – those […]
Fashion means: “It’s not about designer. It’s confidence in how you wear an outfit.” Why I love: In my personal opinion, nothing pairs better than a flowing, floral dress and a leather jacket. It’s like wine and cheese. Gin and tonic. Elizabeth and Darcy. Plus, maroon tights and aquamarine shoes? Done and done.
Today, I had a wonderful opportunity: a couple of hours out by myself without the baby and without work to do. It should have been refreshing. So why was it so depressing? When Teddy was born, I was profoundly shaken by how different I felt. Other than being his mother, I felt like I didn’t […]
Fashion means: “Free style.” Why I love: First of all, her facial expression is great. But obviously that’s not why I stopped her. The outfit is just so individual. Lightweight polka dot faux-veralls (that’s a word now) with moccasins? Check. Add in the glasses, and the outfit is perfect.
