Fifteen Favorite Things
September 28th, 2014
1: Tavi Gevinson on the Nylon “It Girl” cover. We met her and did crafts together when Rookie came through Omaha on their tour, and she posted a picture of Alice’s pennant banner! Tavi called Alice a “rookie Rookie” and my heart melted. I also love the photos by Petra Collins and the intro by Hazel Cills. Writing for Rookie would be a dream. Let’s just say I’m a huge fan and this is a great article. 2: Our new Pounce Boots. I’ve been waiting for these bad boys since February! 3: My hair is growing out (No reason? I just stopped cutting it I guess?) and my go-to style has been to curl sections of my hair with a 1’’ iron and set them with these curl clips. It’s so easy.
4: Anthropologie’s lipstick line. The beautiful gold tubes! It stays on forever, too. 5: Our “2 Old 4 School” sweater. It’s not that I’m too cool, but more that I’m too old. …I think it’s hilarious. 6: Chocolate croissants. I like having one for breakfast every day.
7: Peppermint Altoids Smalls. I eat them all day. 8: Our new Black Widow Dress is now the sexiest thing I own. I rarely wear black dresses but this one is just smashing on my figure. 9: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb forever. I keep a bottle on my desk.
10: The sheer top on our Glass Houses Dress makes me wear my pretty underwear as pretty outerwear which the world is grateful for. 11: Vintage stretch gold belts. I have gotten so many beautiful ones at Wallfower Vintage downtown. 12: Our Hire Me, Fire Me t-shirt from Portland designer Flunk Life is always my go-to these days for business meetings.
13: I have super sensitive skin and I’m the palest of pale, and I’ve never found a foundation that worked for me before Cover FX. It’s really matte and creamy and doesn’t exacerbate my rosacea or acne. MAC always made me break out, and Lancome and Make Up For Ever never had the right shade. I like this one. 14: I’m close to paying off my Hello Holiday business loan, at which time I will start saving for this vintage ring as a gift to myself. I never really had a wedding ring, and it reminds me of the flower bouquets that got me started as an entrepreneur. 15: My brother gifted me this Defender Flashlight, a great self-defense weapon I hadn’t heard of before. I keep it in my purse. The head can be used to beat the shit out of someone, or you can shine it in someone’s face as they walk toward you and temporarily blind them!
