Uncomplicated Style with J. Jill, and the Worst Photographer Ever

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

I’m obsessed with easy fashion because for years, I was certain it existed but somehow eluded me, like Paris Hilton’s intellect. I mean, “easy fashion” surely couldn’t be an urban myth, yet why couldn’t I grasp it? It’s supposed to be simple and uncomplicated. Still, I get confused. I’m not sure what goes with what […]

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

I can’t stand choosing separates. I don’t know what goes with what and so tend to wear something like what I wore today: off-trend gray capris, shapeless yellow tee and a baggy puce-y sweater. With moccasins.   Moccasins that had flowers on them.   Please do not send the fashion police to shoot me in […]

Stuff I Like: Kiehl’s Musk

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

  I have big pores. That must be why nearly every fragrance I’ve ever tried has sunk into my skin never to be smelled again. It’s frustrating: I POUR perfume on and 3.5 seconds later it’s as if I washed it all off with a fire hose. No scent remains. It’s weird. Where does it […]

Stuff I Like: Face Slime

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

{{Mamarazzi Knows Best won!}}   Here’s my newest favorite thing:     The above is part of a skincare line developed by a bloggy friend who suffers from super-sensitive skin, rosacea and “general dermatological malaise.” When she contacted me to ask if I’d give some of the products a trial run, I practically begged she […]
