🔬 Learning From Miss Louie’s Capsule Wardrobe Formulas

I always really enjoy watching Youtuber Miss Louie's (Erica) capsule wardrobe videos.

Storybook style at the Dickens Christmas Fair (and a mini themed capsule)

Last weekend I visited the Dickens Christmas Fair at the Cow Palace in Daly City (or, as their promotional materials occasionally dubs it, the Imperial Bovine Residence)!

Vintage Adventure Style: Outfits Inspired by Old-school Banana Republic Catalogs

A few weeks ago @shipwreckghost commented that one of my outfits reminded her of the old Banana Republic catalogs from the 1980s, which send me down a rabbit hole of the mother of all eighties-does-thirties-explorer-style clothing.

Travel Capsule: 10 Days in Boston, Winter 2018

I took this trip a few months ago and at this point SF is sliding into spring weather, but given how ephemeral the Instagram feed is, I decided I'd throw everything onto an article here.
