Obsessions of Late

Still can't get over these Club Monaco boots that went as fast as they came, leaving few e-traces.  They are perfect on so many levels.

These Valentino boots check all my boxes.

Rachel Comey's Mars boot with white cork heel would get me through the next winter.

But this guy with tassels and white raffia insets fills my more immediate Swedish summer needs (also from Comey).

And if I didn't already have these in black, I'd pull the trigger on the YELLOW version (also Rachel Comey).

And I'm thinking hard about these Chie Mihara woven oxfords.  I know they're even more stunning in person.

I didn't know vintage EEL rings were a thing.  And now I'm obsessed.

Happening Lately

A half-panorama of our apartment.

I made a band to hug my ring.  This is the prototype in silver... then I shall move on to GOLD!

 New hair, freshly tinted:

That time Cochino got into the trash for some damn chicken.  Sometimes her origins as a street cat show.


Stuff I've made lately.

Baked eggs in muffin form, with avocado toast.

Vegan tacofest with lentil-walnut "ground beef," jackfruit "pulled pork," sweet potato and kale filing, and tofu "chicken."

I am obsessed with making these raw tarts.  At left is chocolate-cherry and at right is key lime-avocado.

And here's a strawberry "cheesecake" one.

 Easiest dessert?  Baked pears with honey, cinnamon, and walnuts.

 These bars consist of dates, nut butters, quinoa puffs, coconut, coconut oil, and chocolate.  YUM.  Recipe from Green Kitchen Stories.

 Linear dinner, pre-sauce:  turkey sausage, ginger-orange roasted carrots, and black rice.

Wearing Lately

My cutie-cute &denim overalls, put aside for me by the lovely Victoria:

And a bug ring from my new favorite local jewelry store, WOS.

 Dug out this old Tsumori Chisato dress:

 Lace shirt from Korea, silver skirt from Monkee, and my favorite old white shoes from COS:

Vintage photo-real teddy bear shirt and old H&M bellhop-style jacket:

Dress from & other stories, boots from Valentine Gauthier:

Vintage blouse and scarf:

Sample dress from work, vintage Levi's jacket, necklace by a Columbia designer whose name I can't remember now:

What I've Been Wearing

Poms and checks in the stairway of my old building.


This scottie pin was mine from when I was little.

 And here's the coat in full.

Old Philip Lim shortalls, y'all.

My favorite winter coat.

This "jade" elephant with a "diamond" eye.  A vintage find from my St. Louis days.

Scenes from an outfit:  frog ring from Bimba y Lola, necklace from this Tibetan store in Shanghai (I know, I know).

Wearing my disco hologram leggings from Lucy's wonderful line LuLa Loop.

I love the ruffle knees... and the label.  Lucy is the best.

Whenever I wear these gold tennies I feel like a jazzy granny.  The vintage Pierre Cardin velour shirt didn't hurt, either.

Winter brights.

Beautiful intarsia hand knit sweater from Moonchild.

Roots and boots.

A couple of vintage scores from my last trip to Paris.

My "over-halfs" from Seoul.

The best vintage print.

Do you see the theme?

My waxed linen-wrapped pennies necklace from lovely Janette.

Looking creepy in my all-time best Tatty Devine planetary necklace.
