I had a credit at 6397, so when I was in Manhattan the other day I dropped in to their Nolita store and nabbed this spiff snakeskin-print shirt. It was a little stiff at first, but I ran it through the wash and hung it to dry, and now it is literally the softest shirt ever.
I just think this tiger sweatshirt is awfully cute, and I also really dig the color combination.
These reusable cloths from Baggu are 100% organic cotton, and you can use them for any number of things—as a bandana, or to wrap a gift, say. But I’d use them as napkins. They come in several different print groups, but I’m partial to this floral set.
When Mister was a puppy he chewed everything, including a not-cheap Pendelton dog bed. So I purchased a frankly ugly but indestructible one, but now that he’s older and mellower, I’m thinking I might make an upgrade, like maybe to this cute madras one.
I love the cut of these white wide leg jeans, which have just enough stretch to keep things comfortable.
And I like these blue jeans for the same reason.
This striped tee kind of looks like something Peter Brady would wear, which I’m viewing as a plus.
I have been swearing by SKII sheet masks lately, which I’m convinced make me prettier, and brighten up my face. But they’re so pricey that I only use them for days when I really want to look good. Their secret miracle ingredient is something called pitera, a liquid containing amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and organic acids, which is said to improve the clarity of your skin, decrease wrinkles, and lighten dark spots. So I’m thinking of going for this facial treatment, which also contains pitera and which you can use every day. It’s not cheap either, but how often do you encounter a genuine miracle ingredient?
I like that this army shacket has a fit that’s on the snug side.
Warning: the following story is not for the squeamish. So the bottom pierce on my right earlobe has been stretched out for years—the result, to be sure, of wearing big, dramatic earrings for the entirety of the 80s. I’ve meant to go to the dermatologist to get it stitched up for ages, but that’s surprisingly expensive, and the kind of elective medical undertaking that seemed pretty unnecessary during Covid. Well, the other day, I was trying unsuccessfully to take off an earring, and so I yanked it really hard, and the earring ripped right through my lobe. Surprisingly, it didn’t hurt, but it was plenty gross, and now I’m in the market for clip-on earrings, like these cute little hoops.
I have shared with you before the philosophy of my former Sassy co-worker Mary Clarke, who used to always say that the clunkier the shoes, the skinnier your legs will look, and these Doc Martens are a pretty ideal object lesson in that. They also come in white, which makes them come off slightly lighter.
This very spiff dress isn’t cheap, but it’s got so many good details: poet sleeves, deep V-neck, and—best of all—concealed pockets. It’s also kind of a new take on the shirtdress, which I appreciate.
This denim skirt from Universal Standard is really cute and has a ton of stretch.
