What I Packed This Weekend

Summer Travels Collage


Besides the obvious tops, bottoms, toothbrush, etc etc etc these are my must haves for my weekends away this summer. I’ve been letting my hair air dry and keeping it salty, obsessed with ultra comfortable sneakers, packing light but air-conditioner-proof jackets, staying tight with my one and only I’d marry it if I could Clarisonic face brush, Aurelie Bidermann jewelry (FYI that’s an actual shark tooth dipped in GOLD how appropriate for a dentist, I know), wearing my favorite new sunnies, and always adding a neck scarf for flair.  Oral hygiene covered by my take-everywhere DenTek floss picks with travel case. Double FYI DenTek is having a “Where Have You Travelled?” Instagram contest that ends this month, post a picture of your travel pick wherever you may roam, tag @DenTek, and use the hashtag #DenTekTravelPicks and you can win gift cards and lots of great DenTek products. Put it all in this suede weekender bag that fits everything I need for two nights and three days away, and you are Good. To. GO.

A great book I once read (OK IT WAS THE SECRET, OMG I KNOW) once told me to talk about what I love. So I do it all the time, and I’m about to do it right now. I love wearing men’s clothes. I really like the way they fit me, and I’m incredibly read more…

My Style Keeps Getting Weirder


For my latest Refinery 29 piece, I wrote about how my style keeps getting more and more weird with time. When I was younger, being called weird was bad. Now I embrace my weirds; in personality, dress, and read more…

What I Bought This Week (Extra Patriotic Edition)



It’s almost the 4th of July! Have you not noticed! Of course you have. This is not news. You’re probably not even at work anymore. You are probably in a car on your way to get hot dog buns. Grab me a Kombucha.

What is news (the loose definition of news) is what I bought this week. Strangely enough, everything I purchased is some form of red, white, and/or blue. Not on purpose, I guess I was just feeling patriotic (SPOILER ALERT: I always feel patriotic). Well the suede shoes I technically purchased this month, but in the spirit of keeping things cohesive, I threw them in, and I’m effing obsessed with them (and all things Laurence Dacade), so they stayed collage’d. I loved this suede pattern so much I bought it in the tote (with a cross body strap you know I hate carrying things) and a matching zip pouch that fits in the bag but is also big enough to be a clutch (if I’m in the mood to carry things). I added a bracelet to my ever-growing busy wrist, and a lapis pendant to my ever-growing busy neck area. These red sunglasses are amazing for summer, and work on pretty much everyone. If you’re wondering what “Try it You’ll Like it” means, it’s a patch you guys, I’m not throwing suggestive phrases into my collages. I slapped that sucker on my bag, because I love a patch, I love Clashist, I love trying things, and liking things is also really cool. Let’s say “Try it You’ll Like it” is the theme of the weekend, and then you can let me know what you’ve tried this weekend and what you’ve subsequently liked (I feel a new blog feature coming on?). And if you happen to see me this weekend, I’ll even let you try/like my 4th of July Kombucha.
