Going to the Dogs

Going to the Dogs

My nephew Odie has been in my life since 2010. The Jack Russell / beagle mix was the missing member of my sister and brother-in-law's family and once they met him at the shelter, he was instantly part of their household. Back in 2012, while I was living in DC, my sister and her family [...]

The Satchel of My Eye

The Satchel of My Eye

Christmas came early this year. Foley + Corinna generously sent me a bag I have coveted since I saw Blair Waldorf carrying it during the first season of Gossip Girl: the Lady Tote, albeit in a chic solid black iteration with studded hardware.

Four Degrees From Kevin Bacon

Four Degrees From Kevin Bacon

I studied historic preservation and architectural history in graduate school. One of the classes that made a huge impact on me was a 500 level Urban Design seminar. And this is when I hit y'all with some next level seven four degrees of separation. The gentleman who taught the Urban Design seminar, Karl DuPuy, was a [...]
