Long Read.  The Murders Down the Hall.  It was a quiet building, until residents started dying in brutal, mysterious ways.

Happened to me twice this week.  Then, a young politico said her Grandma turned her onto a new-to-her show called Saved by the Bell and we almost had a hostage situation.  Getting older is bonkers.

    I love that J. Crew long green quilted jacket, but I’m curious if people get coats like that tailored or just live with it being oversized.

    According to their size chart I’m a small for the bust/top area and a large for the hips.

    • Brandi says:

      I wouldn’t get it tailored. I find having a little extra space in the bust in a coat like that allows me to layer better. But I am also both busty and hippy, with a smaller waist, which can lead to other sizing issues.

  2. Sara says:

    I own some short-sleeved versions of that square-neck bodysuit and they hold up well! Purchasing the square-neck next.

    What shoes would you wear with the one stop outfit?

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
