I'm excited to be featured as the July Shop With story for MATCHESFASHION.COM. I know it's difficult not to be distracted by Pepper in her favorite bed (drawer), so let's take a second to enjoy that. Above were some of my favorite looks from the set I edited for them. To see the rest, head on over to MATCHESFASHION.COM or read my interview here. I might just have to break my existential crisis shopping fast to get my hands on all the new Balenciaga.


If I could assemble my dream wardrobe from Totokaelo 💔

Shop by look below:


Probably the tightest thing I've worn since the leotard I wore as Benny The Magic Bunny for my 1st grade talent show. But stretchy matte washed silk will make you do crazy things? Anything is possible with the power of layering.


I know this may come as a shock but I actually really love ruffles and sequins. Not like in a zhuzhy princess way, but generally if it confuses people, I'm down. Trompe l'oeil? Here's my credit card. So basically if I were to ever dream up a gown I'd want to wear, this Gucci one would be it. And the best (?) way to dress down a gown is to layer your rattiest old thermal under it.

Or a pair of blue jeans with a silk runway shirt. Groundbreaking.

I've had some great luck with The Real Real in picking up some missed-out-on-the-first-time-around items (like this and this), but I need to flex my muscles and say this time I've really done it.

I've been way more focused on interior and home stuff lately, so I was going through their art section and hit the jackpot with this signed and numbered print by none other than my favorite artist, Joan Miró. I couldn't believe it was just sitting there for the taking. But before I checked out I grabbed one more *little* thing. You know, it's V-day around the corner and all. You never know when you'll need a ridiculously small bag. For all your ridiculously small things. Thing. One thing.

Now if I were to treat myself a little more:

Have you seen Mr. Robot? You know the leader of the Dark Army who allots a certain number of minutes per appointment and sets an alert for each minute that passes? #goals amirite?

In the freelance world I’m accountable for my own schedule and workflow, so I can be maniacal about time. Maybe not Dark Army leader level, but I check it around 800x a day, which is why my phone can be more distracting than helpful. I’ll look at it for the time, but then there’s an Instagram notification so I check that real quick, and it reminds me of someone I forgot to text, so a quick hey hello turns into recommending an article that I, of course, have to bookmark to read later, and then oh crap, back to work! Five minutes later…wait, what time was it again? This is where a watch comes in handy.
