Another item from my mom’s 70’s closet. (If you missed the orange jumpsuit, check it out here!) I traipsed up the hill with photographer, Jimmy Oligney, one early morning in Los Angeles to find the sunrise perfectly golden in Griffith Park. If you’re looking for a comfortable dress that packs a punch.. hit the thriftContinue reading

I have a weakness, and it’s not shoes.  It’s old-man sweaters!  I have an overabundance of them. This 80’s vintage cardi jumped off the rack and into my arms at the Salvation Army.  He ran away with me for $3.00.  A total steal. I snagged this 1940’s men’s fedora as part of a barter agreementContinue reading

Have you ever thought about what it means to see someone, truly? Have you ever wished to be understood – completely? I have. We live in a society of “Next”.  A swipe generation that can instantly ‘like’ and move on without consequence.  We have so many options vying for our attention.  It’s a world ofContinue reading

As I’m up late in the evening, chatting with a long-time friend in Sydney, Australia, I ask her, “How is tomorrow?  Am I in for a better day?!”  She laughs (as you can on facebook messaging, I mean, really – texting is great but it only goes so far; I wish I could see herContinue reading

When Jesus said we should “become as little children” (Matt. 18) and Bob Dylan said, “stay forever young“, I somehow don’t think either of them meant just a little bit more plastic surgery, a nip & tuck, and a party. Makes me think about Los Angeles… a.k.a. “La La Land”, a.k.a. “Neverland” where Peter PanContinue reading

I can’t help it.  The jumpsuit …and the hair.  They both come from my MOM.  What can I do?!  (Brooke has the same hair. Although we aren’t related, friends are the family you choose, so they say!  (I really don’t know who ‘they’ are, but they sure know a lot.)) Ever since I was aContinue reading
