FUTURE HOODIE

Every summer, Mr. Fish and I head up to visit friends in the Adironacks for some good ol’ outdoor fun and relaxation. I don’t think we even realized how badly we needed this until we canoed to our very own island camp (as in tent camp) last week on Lower Saranac Lake, and proceeded to [...]

THE FUTURE DRESS TUTORIAL

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here: this is going to involve some math! Didn’t  scare you? Good. Because I’m about to share how to draft my favorite dress of the season.

Some of our Brooklyn friends think we’re crazy for trading our big space in Brooklyn for a smaller, more expensive place in the city (of course, most are [...]
