Why I Swear by Oil Cleansing and the Double Cleansing Method

Over the past year, I’ve become a major proponent of oil cleansing my face. But when I bring this up in conversation, it’s usually reciprocated by blank stares and lots of skeptical questions (which I’ll address in this post). And when I first heard about oil cleansing, I was skeptical too. For as far back

That Red Lip Classic Thing

I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the most well-designed and well-constructed dresses I’ve ever worn. The tailoring is impeccable right off the rack and the material is structured but still simultaneously forgiving. This is the third, and sadly, the final dress that Maggy London sent me for our partnership. Although

A Colorful Midi Dress

Even though it has more color and pattern than I usually gravitate toward, I couldn’t resist this Maggy London sheath dress. I anchored it with a nude pair of shoes and an equally neutral-colored saddle bag, letting the bold dress shine on its own. Midi-length dresses have become a fast favorite of mine. They’re conservative

White Kick Flares

Let’s talk about denim for a minute… As you probably know from following this blog, I’m pretty much a skinny jeans devotee. In fact, before skinny jeans came into style, I never really felt comfortable or confident in jeans at all. But the minute skinny jeans became a “thing,” I knew I had found my

The Best Saddle Bags for Every Budget

I’ve been meaning to add a saddle bag to my collection for some time and now that spring has sprung, I’m seeing them absolutely everywhere. I love that they somehow manage to be both bohemian and structured – a rare combination that makes them appropriate for pretty much any outfit. In an ideal world, I’d

It’s been so fun seeing all the pretty and feminine spring pieces pop up in stores over the past few weeks, especially in contrast to the dreary weather we’ve been having here in Portland. I like to stock up on clothes and accessories at the beginning of each season so I have optimal selection before

The Best Little Black Dresses Under $200

“One is never over or under dressed with a little black dress.” – Karl Lagerfeld. So with Karl’s eternal wisdom in mind, and knowing that chic shouldn’t have to cost a fortune, here are my picks for the chicest little black dresses under $200. No matter if you’re looking for something formal or casual, there’s

My Uniform

I wear some version of this outfit at least once a week. Sometimes the boots are replaced by my favorite sneakers when I’m running errands or feeling really casual. Occasionally, I’ll switch those out for pumps if I’m going out to dinner or for a night out with my girlfriends. But whatever my choice in

Kitchen Art Updates from Minted

That wall behind our kitchen island and bar, now filled with delightful art prints, was once, not too long ago, a blank, depressing space lacking any creativity or personality at all. In fact, we lived for two whole years with that emptiness, simply because we couldn’t seem to find pieces we both loved that were
