Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Fall Fashion Preview: J. Crew Fall/Holiday 2013 Collection


One of the most buzzed about women's collections for fall is the J.Crew 2013 Fall/Holiday Collection, presented at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week earlier this year, and it's easy to see why. Now bare with me. I know a lot of you wouldn't wear all of the looks as they were styled for the runway, and I don't blame you. However take a moment to look at the individual pieces. The collection is full of perfectly tailored trousers, glorious brocade prints, and a some sporty pieces. There is so much detail, yet somehow it's so streamlined. Though the looks are styled to perfection if you're fashion forward, you can make the pieces more wearable by pairing the prints with solid tops and the trousers with flats.


The first thing I noticed were the accessories. I can't help it, those are my favorite parts of any look. Let's face it, shoes have taken a strange turn in the recent years with high flat-forms, chunky heels, cut-out heels, etc. I love how all of the heels shown with this collection are classic pointy-toe heels, a few incorporating the ankle-strap trend (which I am obsessed with). These looks are perfect for wearing to work and for holiday events. The fun pieces mixed in, like the first two tops in the first picture and the striped tops can all work well with more casual look as well. Though the blazers are all so sleek and formal, they can totally go with jeans and a cool tee.
