10 Worst Things About Maternity Clothes

Before I begin this list of complaints in earnest, I’d like to acknowledge that it is better now that we don’t “put all our clothes away and wear tents for nine months” as my mom described her experience with maternity clothes. (And Mom had five kids – that’s about four years of tent-wearing!) Despite the…

The Day in Photos: The Way I Tell Myself That Its Okay

Nearly everything I like has an element of randomness.

Challenge Accepted: Floral Bomber Jacket and Faux Pixie Cut OOTD

Confession: I actually really do not like floral, generally speaking. But I love bomber jackets, and very light layers. Recently I’ve been enjoying attempting to adapt trends that I don’t really care for into something that I actually like (for example – I did my own version of glitter roots at Christmas). Its a way…

Spinster Records and Seoul Kitchen, Oak Cliff, Dallas

1. Drive down to the Green Lights of Dallas; drive past them. Over Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and past the new trolley tracks, to Davis Street – 829. Find Spinster Records illuminated on the dark end of the street, past the bars and sidewalks of Bishop Arts. 2. Walk through the open door. 3. Wander…
