Don’t Book Back // Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls. by @LeandraMedine

last read... Over five days, I digested Leandra Medine's Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls. Being that it was published back in 2013, I am late on reading this book. I only recently discovered that she had written this and upon the revelation, immediately purchased it on iBooks. Leandra (after reading such personal experiences, I [...]

Historic Bridges of the MidAtlantic: Thomas Mill Bridge

Historic Bridges of the MidAtlantic: Thomas Mill Bridge

Last weekend the husband and I wandered out on the Fairmount Park and along our walk, we encountered the Thomas Mill Bridge. I happen to love a good historic structure, bridges included. Did you know that along with HABS (Historic American Building Survey) and HALS (Historic American Landscape Survey), the National Park Service also administers [...]

Vivier or KLP?

Recently it came to my attention that certain Karl Lagerfeld Paris shoes have the same distinguishing feature as Roger Vivier shoes. The metal ornaments at the toe box most definitely bear resemblance to each other, as well as the Manolo Blahnik Hangisi style made popular by Carrie Bradshaw. I am a fan of the flats [...]

Don’t Book Back // Born To Be Brad by @mrbradgoreski with @mickeyrapkin

last read... I just finished reading Born To Be Brad by Brad Goreski. Like Fashion Victim, the reading material alone was enough of a carrot to get me on the elliptical. I loved that Brad (and I am sure, to an extent, Mickey Rapkin) wrote in the voice that we all know from The Rachel [...]

Black and White and Read All Over

Last weekend was a nice one in Philadelphia, weather-wise. While I spent about half of it in bed recovering from a raging Saturday night out at the Philadelphia Art Museum, I was able to get out and about and took a walk around our neighborhood. A crisp upper fifties degree day called for a dress [...]

Night at the Museum

Night at the Museum

Last Saturday, the husband and I spent our evening at the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Fall Into Art party. The contemporary wing and the newest exhibit Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now was open to party-goers. The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art board did a fantastic job with planning and executing [...]

Satchel Royale

I just scored another NWT Foley + Corinna satchel from eBay. I should really stop watching season one of Gossip Girl and drinking a solo bottle of wine in the same night. Bids happen. Best Offers happen. At least I am buying second hand and really committing to the ethical style pyramid. Glass half full? This is [...]

Roasted Acorn Squash with Vermont Maple Syrup and Pecans // @2souschefs

"Thanksgiving is fast approaching and everyone is planning their menu comprising of turkey and some half thought (half baked?) sides. We were hoping to aleve some of the anxiety of choosing what side dishes to prepare alongside your painstakingly roasted turkey. The choices need to not feel so daunting. Andi and I have three weeks [...]
