Outfit | What We Hold On To


Happy Monday! This weekend I went through the box in the top of my closet of clothes/shoes I’d been holding on to for spring and purged A LOT.

Outfit // Style Shifts


I still owe you guys a shoe post (what’s left after the purge), but for now, let me just say that I do have quite a few pairs of shoes left. Including several that I’m sure I will get rid of, but for now, can’t bear to part with. Like my Repetto flats.



EVERYTHING’S ON eBay…my user name is grechenc New things for sale HERE!!! So you know I’ve been trying to minimal-ize my clothing lately, and generally I think I am being quite successful. But then I got out my sandals/summer shoes a couple of days ago, and OMG, I have more shoes than I know what […]

This week I love | Spring Colors


I’ve made a pact with myself: I don’t need any more clothes/shoes/bags, BUT, if I buy anything in the next few months, it must be a color – no more black, white or gray for me. I have enough “neutral basics,” what I need more of are accent colors. Like any of these: Coral/Red | […]
