A few fashiony questions

Were shorts always so unflattering? I seem to have worn shorts in the past and not been completely horrified by my reflection, but now every time I put them on I take them right back off and put on a skirt. I would think it’s just me, but suddenly no one is really looking great [...]

My first finished knitting in more than four years

Well, my recent dive back into knitting has produced its first finished object: a scarf made out of Patons Pooch. It’s pretty fuzzy and cuddly. Zuzu picks it up and holds it while sucking her thumb if her blankie is unavailable. Henry has been wearing it as a belt. I started this scarf years ago, [...]

Your Weekly Zuzu

Here’s Zuzu wearing my new favorite shirt on her. It just says “purple” and is from Nina and Tom. It’s a nice simple shirt in the self explanatory category of baby shirtage (though it’s the sort of thing that’s simple on a baby but would be all ironic on a grownup). I got it from [...]

Etsy: Veldie’s Remakes

Ack! Have I really not recommended Veldie’s Remakes yet? A cowboy shirt from her shop was the first thing I ordered off of Etsy. It was supposed to be for Henry, but Eli wasn’t going to let that happen. He adopted the shirt for himself and probaby wears it every three days. The woman behind [...]

REI Paddler Hat

I do try my best to apply sunscreen, but honestly it’s mostly like trying to grease a cat. So thank goodness for hats. I think what I really want is some kind of kiddie sombrero, but, barring that, our hat of choice is the REI Paddler Hat, which is so great that every time we [...]

Etsy: Eternally Chic update

A few weeks ago, I recommended the gorgeous belts from Eternally Chic. Extremely astute readers may have noticed that my mom offered to get my one for my birthday, even though my birthday was in March, and even though she already got me something awesome. I’ll spare you the details of my hesitation (not being [...]

Etsy: Milo in Maine

My new best friend Liz (let’s pause a moment to give Liz time to take out the restraining order against me…ok, done?) has the best shop at Milo in Maine. She also has an Etsy shop for Milo in Maine where she sells overstocks and sale items, and it’s definitely worth checking out. This winter [...]

Awesome Goodwill Score

I managed to score an Anna Sui for Anthropologie dress, in my size, at our local Goodwill. For $7!! Judging by the closest style currently at Anthropologie, this dress cost somewhere around $250 new. Of course, I won’t actually be able to wear it for about three years, until I finish nursing. If I wore [...]

Girl Clothes Conundrums

Having a girl is – what? – at least fifty percent about the clothes. Boy clothes are awesome too, and I’ve had a good time dressing them (though why I keep buying tan cords for Henry I have no idea…he seriously has seven pairs; there must be some unresolved tan corduroy pant issue from my [...]

Etsy: Circular Accessories

This is in no way a secret Etsy find: Circular Accessories is one of the most popular shops on Etsy. I have to mention it though, because whenever the boys wear their owl shirts*, people stop me to ask where I got them. Her designs are beautiful, all of her shirts are from American Apparel, [...]
