vintage travel

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

I’ve been perusing Etsy the last few days because I am trying to convince my friend Bryce, the solo traveler, girlfriend getaway sidekick and talented designer, to get her own shop* and I need to make a good case. Look, she’s already got a great start with this travel shoe bag… [Taken by Bryce and […]

a stylish weekend

Monday, June 15th, 2009

Right now I own two pairs of heels that have lost the bottom part of the actual heel and a few pairs of pants whose bottom seams have unraveled and need to be hemmed. And, my favorite pair of jeans are on the brink of unwearable. This weekend, as I gathered all of the clothing […]

a travel essential

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Travel Gear Tuesday hasn’t made an appearance in a while, but I figured I would get back on track after coming across the most brilliant piece of travel gear I have seen in a while. I think that was pretty self-explanatory. My friend Bryce got this at the Gap Outlet on sale right before our […]

design hive, revisited

Monday, April 13th, 2009

I am officially a regular each month at Design Hive, the independent designer’s market in Cambridge. A couple of Saturdays ago, it was as busy as usual and we even came across some new vendors.

In fact, the thought of being adorned with an object that could have been plane ticket, makes me cringe. But to each her own…. I do wear jewelry and I like it even, I just don’t have anything that costs more than 30 dollars. Recently, I have found myself on a quest to find some […]

travel gear tuesday: convertible glove mittens

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

My sister has been rocking these for months now and I have finally found a pair that I like! I got these purple ones at Spring, which is my new favorite shoe store. Let’s face it, Boston is freezing in the winter- you need to cover up. And when you have a long commute to […]

travel gear tuesday: gyming it

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Yesterday after work I went straight to the gym. After triple checking that all necessities were shoved into my little tote, I entered the gym to realize that I had forgotten the smallest, yet most important item: an elastic to tie my hair back. I turned right around, went back through the crowded parking lot […]
