Fashion Should Be for Everybody

Boundaries are breaking down all around us. And this new wave of feminism we're experiencing has impacted many of the boundaries in the world of fashion too; the idea that there are standards of beauty that we must conform to, that being beautiful is a feeling that should be available to only a few privileged few, rather than something every woman should feel, from both inside and out.

Hey Dude, Pull Up Your Pants

Seated at the five-star establishment where we were dining, I looked around at all the other women in the room who had clearly made a similar effort. Nice work, ladies.

Stretching My "Uniform" With Must-Haves for Spring

It's no secret that I have built my wardrobe on renewed and renewable staples and a mostly monochromatic palette.
