The Daily Ws.

What I’m Watching. How Curb Your Enthusiasm saved a man from the death penalty.

What I’m Buying. The Hoka One Clifton running shoe.

What I’m Testing. Glossier’s Boy Brow brow-filler.

Instagram of the Day.

Today’s Insta comes from @styledsnapshots, aka.blogger Kendall Kremer, who somehow manages to make lumberjack plaid look cool. I would look like a bad Paul Bunyan Halloween costume. #jealous

    I own the Audrey Brooke Nary flats in cognac and absolutely adore them. After the usual break in period, they’re perfectly comfortable to wear if you’re on your feet all day, and they hold up pretty well against normal wear/tear/scuffing.

  2. SunnyIA says:

    Boy Brow is my dream brow product!! It’s a great alternative to the heavy powder brow that just doesn’t quite coordinate with my everyday make up. The only downside is that a tube doesn’t last long (and this coming from a person who almost never runs out of any product and ends up throwing things away due to age).

    Re: styling the leather dress, try a faux shirt collar (some retailers call them a bib) underneath.

    I wish you luck on the Hoka running shoe purchase! I attempted them last year around this time and just couldn’t make them work. My marathon running brother says they have completely resolved his plantar band pain though. So I just recommend that wherever you buy them, as with any running shoe, make sure you can return them after trying them out if needed!

As you may have noticed, I do not have the most creative personal style. I am here for basics. But what I’m always looking for is basic-but, a piece of clothing that is basic but just a little different.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
