catching up

some random thoughts: I love this piece on how to write a thank you note (via Mighty Girl) I spent this past weekend outside of Healdsburg on retreat (I’m on the vestry, which is similar to the board of directors, at my church) at The Bishop’s Ranch, one of my favorite places in the world [...]

sequin flats

I like sparkly shoes more than almost anything. If you’ve seen me at a wedding in the last few months it’s likely I’ve been wearing these: They’re the KRISSS from Steve Madden in gold (gah, why do so many things I like have such terrible names?) So sparkly. So comfortable. Which is key for work [...]

a few things I really liked from the last week or so: these snakeskin print velvet flats from daniblack. which are as comfortable as they are rad. buying tickets for my next trip – Chicago in February! (because apparently I’m a masochist – it’s very possible that I hate cold weather more than anyone in [...]

party shoes

I used the excuse of not working at the wedding this weekend to break in* my new favorite party shoes. Gold + glitter + peep toe = love. They’re pretty much party-shoe perfection. The BCBGeneration Ariel Pump in gold glitter – I found they ran big, and ended up with a 1/2 size smaller than [...]

No embellishment. No sparkle. No exterior branding. Just plain, super soft, black [...]

last night I finally started unpacking the last few boxes from my move back in December, and set to getting my closet organized. For the first time in many, many years I have room to store all of my shoes in the same place.* Walking in and seeing this makes me embarrassingly happy**: It’s not [...]

Hunter Verbiers

it is way too late in the year to be shopping for rainboots (it generally doesn’t rain the Bay Area from May through October. hey hey Mediterranean climate) but I love these Hunter Verbiers: Grey with red laces? yes please. Now if they’ll only go on sale for half off, maybe I can actually let [...]

Have you seen Miss Natalie‘s new line Canoe yet? Featuring vintage American work wear along with hand tooled leather goods, it’s really great stuff. At the moment I’m particularly eyeing this keychain – I think my keys could use a makeover for summer. (what? you don’t accessorize your keys seasonally?) I miss running into Natalie [...]

Can you feel it coming?

Flip-flop weather is almost here, and I just discovered that I apparently tossed all but one pair of my old ones when I moved in December.* Because I live in them most of the year, I’m definitely going to need to buy a few more pairs to get me through this upcoming spring, summer, and [...]
