  Since @marymetcalf introduced me to Tavi’s blog, I’ve tweeted and shared her posts ad nauseum. At 12 years old, Tavi is one of the smartest and most creative style mavens on the Web. Her ability to mix DIY creations with store bought staples is as impressive as her ability to turn Rei Kawakubo’s CDG […]

Yes, we got blue ribbons for “most effort” even if we came in last in a game, yes, my mom even saved that ribbon in a scrapbook (and rightly […]


A month or so ago, I read Scott Brown’s “I’ll Be There 4 U” and although I appreciated how witty and well written his article was (and always is), I couldn’t fully empathize with his annoyance that “in the age of queue-able social priorities, Twitter-able status updates, and amaranthine cloud memory, keeping friends requires almost […]
