I just love Sally Singer’s quote — and couldn’t agree more with getting back to your why … and the value of clothes in our lives. When I read things like this I get inspired to continue to pitch my fashion essay collection with its tales of love, loss, working in fashion and finding myself — all told through what I wore. Low slung 7’s in the early aughts with “going out tops” from Theory, every cash register accompanied by a rainbow of hanky panky’s, working at Calvin during Francisco’s reign and loving every feminine, chic design he created. Look forward to seeing what your line does next!

Hanky Panky's at the cash wrap, so true!

Oh man. My obsession with 7 jeans was real. I was 22 (2002) and had just started physical therapy school and saw the sign in Nordstrom in Kansas City. They just looked cool. And different. To say the excitement that I felt when I put them on was something I’d never experienced is an understatement. And I think it was the most I’d ever spent on an item of clothing, like $98 if I recall correctly. My already very present denim obsession grew exponentially that day, as did my credit card bills… 😑

Sevens! They were my prized possession when I was a college freshman in the dorms at PLNU (2001). Also Chip & Pepper, D&G (Dolce & Gabbana) dark rinse, Earls, of course, and Current Elliott. Jeans have always made me happier than any other piece of clothing…and I spent plenty of time at Ron Herman too! Over the years my mindset has changed and rather than showing off the jeans with “going out tops” or the perfect button down (hello, Jcrew…and honestly nothing beat Chloe circa 2007) now I wear jeans for their comfort, because I already know they look great, and all they need is a hoodie and bare feet.🩵

Oh, I loved my Earls! They were the perfect slightly slouchy boyfriend fit before that was even a big thing!
