Over the last three months, I’ve noticed a disconcerting trend among my 5’3 and under clients, one that I now must address. I don’t know exactly when stores unleashed ‘petites’ (my guess would be the 80s when most everything was excessive and useless), but they are obsolete at best, detrimental at worst. Now don’t get… [Cont.]

With Spring on the horizon, most women know that they should clean out their closets; Very few actually will. For one thing, it’s a massive undertaking. Even if you’re among the fortunate few who know what should stay and what should go, you then have to answer the call to get rid of things you… [Cont.]
If I can’t have this absolutely gorgeous Elizabeth & James kimono-inspired blouse, then I hope one of you can. Available only in a XS/S, it’s 60% off. Available here. **goes to cry in corner**

This is a 1920s dental cabinet with amazing details, so much so that you’re gonna have to see for yourself. I would use it in the… [Cont.]
I’ve written about High Street Shoppes, the best thing to happen to the Boulder retail market in as long as I’ve been here. Two interior designers combined some free time with their gorgeous and unique collection of furniture and decor items to create a market shop a few weekends a month. Their aesthetic combines lodge-rustic… [Cont.]
Banana Republic scores with this lightweight cardigan, perfect for the Spring. I like their styling but think this sweater would look best with boyfriend jeans and flats.
Currently, I’m working on converting one of my guy friends into my first male client. Over cocktails last night, I gave him my oft-repeated speech: the most important part of a guy’s style is footwear. So inspired by you Rob, and for all my readers, here is the gold stardard: John Varvatos. At just under… [Cont.]
Dries Van Noten is one of those lines that is always a little out there. Unmitigated eccentricity leads to some looks that are not totally wearable.. But when it’s reigned in just right, you get something stunning like this. High on our lust list.
