Two Girls, One Kit: The Wide Leg Denim Jumpsuit from Winsome

I was at a fancy work party recently and noticed something veeeery interesting: The balance in eveningwear had shifted from stylish gals in dresses to stylish gals in jumpsuits.

I’m writing this post from India!

The Science of Fashion: How to Wear Layered Knits

There’s something so buoying about receiving a complement from a stranger. Yesterday I was waiting in line at the grocery store when an dapper elderly gentleman told me, “It’s nice to see someone dressing so stylishly for this cold weather we’re having.” Indeed, LA has been experiencing a serious drop in temperatures (as low as 40 […]
