What Not to Wear to Coffee (or how I get Stacy London to notice me!)


Yes, I do wear fun (yet quirky!) fashion ensembles such as this out of the house. But only on Saturdays, when I’m walking down to get my coffee from the adorable coffee girls who don’t seem to mind what I wear (especially since I give them good tips when they compliment my brightness.) Plus, sometimes […]

My Big Hair: don’t try this at home!


I was getting ready for a meeting in San Francisco the other day, when Kristin decided she’d help me with my hair. “We need to add some volume,” she said, matter-of-factly. I trust this girlfriend with my hair because she was a professional hairstylist for many years. Plus her hair always looks good. In fact, […]

Commuting to work in the Bay Area: I do believe in Ferries. I do, I do, I do!


I’m in Oakland and San Francisco this weekend hanging out with my friend Kristin and looking for new gigs, which means lots of meetings in lots of places. Driving in this traffic can wear a person out, so I decided to take the Ferry today, instead. It was an excellent choice. My purple Talia boots […]

My Horny Toad BlogHer Travel Adventure


Okay, I’m sort of a last minute packer. I travel a lot and I just sort of throw things in willy-nilly and hope for the best. This usually works, but I’ve lost some weight recently and I wasn’t sure what to wear to BlogHer. I wanted to be comfortable for walking around and dancing, but still […]

Horny Toad: How to find fun, do good, and be comfortable at BlogHer’11


This is my cousin Amy. She works at Horny Toad, a very cool clothing company who’s sponsoring my blog while I travel down to BlogHer this week. Amy’s gonna kill me for posting this picture, probably, but hey, if you had a cousin this cute, you’d post her on your blog for linkbait, too. Especially […]

I Took Pink High Heels to San Francisco: Pier 39, China Town and a U2 Concert


I took the Pink Oh! Shoes on an adventure in San Francisco last week. We also went to the U2 concert in Oakland, where my friends from the Moonalice Band opened the show, and I met fellow Tribe members in real life, and affirmed that Oh! Shoes were made for walking, touring and dancing. Yes, […]

Sharing Sexy, Healthy Shoes: Alana the Pink Oh! Goes to Washington, DC


Why yes, I did take the cute pink Oh! shoes to Washington, DC after my trip to FitBloggin, to see the tourist attractions! And yes, I made strangers try them on to prove how comfortable they are. And of course I made a raft out of water bottles and duct tape so I could float them […]

Oh Shoes! – Oh My! Sexy, Healthy, High Heels? Yes! Let’s have a shoe party


I do love my old, worn out, comfortable mommy Dansko clogs, but let’s face it: they’re just not very sexy. And we all know it. But sexy shoes are bad for your feet. And knees. And hips. Right? Well…have I got news for you, people! There’s a new sexy, healthy high heel out there, from […]

A Fair Trade: Upcycle Your Inner Fashionista at the Consignment Store!


I have a thing for boots. Cowboy boots are my weakness. Along with biker-chick boots. And black leather spikey-heeled boots. And gray tweed boots that will surely match something I have yet to buy, because gray tweed is always in style. I love to shop, but I need to be practical with my spending. Boots […]

Mommy Makeover: From Frumpy to Fabulous with One Good Hairdo!


Okay, those pictures of me in the purple dress are pretty bad. I can’t believe I walk around like that. And you guys let me! Ah well, whaddya do.. I love my new hair! It’s funny how much of my self-esteem is tied up in how I look. I wish I could say it’s not […]
