sometimes i end up popping a vein or just going radio silent for a few days, but i try my best to keep this a negative-lite zone; operative word “try.”

i don’t always succeed. especially when lauren santo domingo, co-founder of the online fashion retailer modo-operandi and whose major talent in life appears to be feeling superior over everyone she comes into contact with, is associated.

i’ve voiced my disappointment for lauren before.

so it sort of burrows a crevice in my heart to tell you to go check out at moda operandi’s wallet-emptying trunk show from stella jean, an italian designer heavily influenced by her caribbean heritage, whose designs channel the punk rockin’, 1950’s housewife in us all.  


i don’t care who i have to sleep with, preferably my hunky husband, but i must have this platano checkered shirtdress

this dress screams my name, pulls my hair, and cuddles with me afterward.


but so does this salice checkered jacket and primula wax cotton skirt

typically i avoid “color” and prints like i’m supposed avoid carbs, but these beauties, along with this dalida graphic tee have me bingeing on the rainbow.



and that tropical vacation hunkiest and i are planning for winter {baby are you reading this?} will only be complete if this razza hawaiin car bikini and said bikini with loto wax cotton pants go in my suitcase.

happy shopping m’loves.
