As most of you have figured out, I’ve been slacking. I haven’t updated this blog in far too long, and my excuse is that I’m now very busy and important because I have a big girl job at Gloss48. We have a team of six–three founders (Jill, Laura, and Jodi), plus the buyer (Mara), the [&hellip

St. Patty’s Wears That You Can Love All Year

March 13th, 2013

St. Patty’s Day. It’s one of Beantown’s sloppiest and most glorious holidays, right on par with Marathon Monday. The former involves getting shitfaced and watching a parade; the latter, getting shitfaced and watching people run. Both are magnificent, since all Bostonians take great pleasure in daydrinking. (We’re Irish–it’s like, our culture!) But, St. Patty’s sometimes [&hellip

Intermix (186 Newbury): Boston’s A-list worships this haven of splurge-worthy garb, which is precisely why it’s currently doubling in size by expanding into the former Aldo Accessories.

Restoration Hardware’s Debut Party is a Total Dud

March 7th, 2013

This is majorly disappointing, and it truly breaks my heart to report it–but Restoration Hardware’s grand opening party was a dud of epic proportions, and seriously blew. The potential for an incredibly glamorous affair was there, but Resto completely missed the mark by inviting about 3000 people too many. The goal of the night was [&hellip

The Ancient Legend of the “Cool Girl”

January 23rd, 2013

When football season hits Boston, throngs of pathetic girls emerge from the woodwork on command, and my eyes immediately start to roll. You know the type. They wear tiny Patriots shirts and three pounds of makeup. As they stare vapidly at the game, it’s clear that they have no understanding of it and even less [&hellip

Back Bay Who?? The Seaport’s Where It’s At

October 31st, 2012

Lately, Back Bay’s historic charm seems to be . . . well, history, taking a backseat to the modern allure of the emerging Innovation District, aka the Seaport. This area is undergoing as many transformations as a contestant on The Swan (why oh WHY was that show cancelled??), and so far the results are just [&hellip
