Your Backpack is Hot.

Tote bags are annoying to carry around and always result in a sore shoulder. Somehow you end up with 3 books, 2 lunches and a hairdryer hanging off your shoulder during rush hour. Sure, I wear my fancy workbag when I need to meet with clients, but on a day-to-day basis-- backpacks are my jam. Don't get me wrong, I'm not encouraging you to open up LL Bean in a new browser and order yourself a monogrammed backpack (no hate for…

Blogging for Basics pt.2

I'd congratulate you for starting a blog, but buying a domain and choosing a layout doesn't make you a champion yet. Yes, I know it's hard-- but it just gets harder.  The hardest part of having a blog is coming up with consistent content. Shit ain't easy. I know people who have had very successful blogs that have given up. I've had my blog for 5 years, most of the time it feels like a blessing, but it often feels like…

Blogging for Basics Pt.1

If starting a blog were easy, I wouldn't have one anymore. Too many talented writers would have dived into this already condensed pool. There would be nobody left to read my content. Even after nearly 5 years of blogging, I rewrote the first sentence in this article upwards of 10 times. Even after hundreds of articles posted and millions of views, the best article idea I could come up with this week was "how to start a blog." I've proudly…

London Fashion Almanac

From the moment I touched down in London town, my eyes were not fixated on Big Ben or the iconic red phone booths and black taxis, but on the clothes of fashion- forward Londoners. Even the trendiest, fast-paced New York it-girl remains slightly behind-the-times in comparison to our stylish friends across the pond. While on my most recent London adventure,  I made mental notes of what trends I should be shopping for before everyone in the US inevitably catches up. This trip had…

The New Rules of Instagram

There are some aspects of social media that are very superficial, but at the end of the day, Instagram provides people with a creative outlet who otherwise wouldn't have one. I'm totally one of those people who posts a lot. It's as simple as going to an indie coffee shop instead of Starbucks, recording an awesome outfit, and keeping your eyes open for street art.  You don't have to have a Chiara Ferragni sized crew or Hailey Baldwin's bikini bod to…

Still Cold, but it’s Spring.

T-Shirt: Vince Vest: BB Dakota Necklace: Moonlight Makings Jeans: BlankNYC (I wear these religiously, highly recommend) Sunglasses: Rayban  With the exception of the vest, you can probably DIY this entire outfit with your closet already. If you have a leather vest, that works as a good replacement. Otherwise, this particular BB Dakota one is available on LeTote and Amazon on sale. My necklace can be purchased through DM only via Moonlight Makings :)

Covered in Caviar: Petrossian NYC

In a city congested with french cuisine, the Petrossian offers a menu that cannot be found elsewhere in New York. Chef Richard Farnabe has mastered the art of complimenting untraditional flavors to create a harmony of taste. I find myself craving caviar marshmallow as I write this; a sentence I never thought I would form. Everyone from the Kardashians to Martha Stewart is a fan of Petrossian Caviar. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to review their new…

March Insta-Queens

You don't have to have millions of followers to have an impressive feed. This is why I ~love~ this column. Per usual, we're showcasing *normal* (fab) women with dope accounts that will provide you with your monthly inspiration. Instead of looking at congested accounts that require an entire social media team, look at real-life women who rock this sh*t on their own. This is who you should be following. @Caybabe Living in California is a major advantage when it comes to iPhone photography;…

Hey, Cool Girl.

Hey Girl, Timing your texts: Normal. Asking friends for advice: Normal. Strategically planning run-ins: Normal. Look, nobody is going to judge you for stalking yourself on social media before sending a friend/follow request to the person you're interested in. It's totally okay to ask your friend for advice on how to respond to a text that doesn't quite ask a question.  When you first like something, it's normal to get a little obsessive.  I was referring to my boyfriend as "my boyfriend" before our second…
