So my coral Old Navy dress from last year came down with a bad case of the Wonky Hemline after a few washings, and I bought this one at a discount to replace it. It’s a little more on the glowy orange side than I expected, but I can work with that, too. Though I’ll probably temper it with other colors when I wear it so as not to be mistaken for a traffic cone. read more

I wore this to check out a fabulous art installation called Playing the Building. The project was the brainchild of David Byrne – a personal hero of mine – and has traveled from Stockholm to London to New York and now to Minneapolis. Essentially, Byrne hooks a vintage organ up to the pipes and structure of a building and the public can play the organ, and therefore the building. IT IS SO COOL and all of you Twin Cities folks should check it out! read more

Last year, I bought a striped “dress” from Target that turned out to be more of a tunic. I wore it and washed it so often that the black stripes began to fuzz their way into the white ones. It looks fine from afar, less fine up close. So I nabbed this striped dress – an actual dress – as a replacement. I expected it to be flimsy, clingy jersey, but it’s surprisingly thick and sturdy. Still drapes beautifully, though, and is bound to become a year-round favorite. read more
