Commissioning Denisa Piatti Custom Jewelry

I love hoop earrings, and since high school, I’ve worn bamboo hoops. And I still wear them (see here, here, and here) but I feel they are looking a bit try-hard on me if not with just the right outfit. I don’t walk around with a t-shirt saying, “No really,…

  Spring and summer is dress season.  Without having to worry about staying warm and covered up, dresses are a great one-piece way to be ready for work, weddings, weekends, and beyond.  I love a ponte or other refined knit dress with a subtle fit and flare or a-line shape…

Cancel Your Clothing Subscription Box. Love, Me

I’ve been there. I’ve stood in front of my closet and hated every single thing on the hangers. That has been worn so many times if I have to wear it again I’ll scream. That shirt emphasizes my stomach. I wore that last time I saw these people. Those pants…

My Favorite Bras, Panties, Shapewear, and More

It’s been a while since I did one of these posts. Since lifting weights, my body has changed a lot and therefore so has my lingerie drawer. Below I share my favorite bras, panties, and other underpinnings.  I took a few photos of the actual items as I find it…
