Second Hand Wedding: My Free 14k Gold Wedding Band!

Second Hand Wedding: My Free 14k Gold Wedding Band!

I’ve always admired the wedding band of my friend Laura. Like most Italian ladies I know, Laura wears a simple, 2mm gold band, instead of a diamond, as her wedding ring. I love the practicality of her ring. It’s so plain that she can sleep in it, weed the yard in it, and travel without […]

Capsule Travel Wardrobe What I Wore Today 11.15.11

All the ceilings at school are covered with insanely detailed trompe l’oeil paintings. They’re kind of mesmerizing. Today I got busted for literally staring off into space during class by one of the school administrators. “It’s so hard not to be distracted. The ceiling is so great.” I told her. “Beh.” She chided. “This painting. […]
