commuting by bike

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

last night I took the bus from work to the Levi’s Commuter Workspace party downtown.
the party’s turnout was insane: and it was a great crowd.

Simply designed space with all your biking needs (mechanic, tuneup, jeans with stretch….denim covered bike seats!).  I’m in love with the windbreakers that look indigo dyed.

It’s up for a month…so ride on over to 157 w 5th downtown.

It’s a Mod, Mod World

Monday, June 9th, 2014

This is Ground’s MOD launches today. I’ve been carrying this organizer-meets-lifestyle-changer for a couple weeks now and I love it.

It carries all my stuff (phone, keys, notebook, cards, pens, receipts, cash, random pieces of paper I need to carry around) and is so much better than rummaging around in a bag. That having been said, it also tosses into most of my bags pretty easily when I need to carry more.


Even more than the item itself, I love how it’s imagined: you can swap out the interior organizers (and their colors) to change it up and organize yourself and your stuff a different way.

get it here!

new apartment, new ideas

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Isaac and I are moving to a new apartment soon. We wanted to just stay where we were till we moved to our house, but eh: what can I say: things like building a house take a long time and doing laundry at the laundromat sucks. So!

We’ve lived together for 12 years now and we want to make some actual changes in this next apartments, because things like our books, art and furniture don’t change move to move, and this is a good chance to mix things up as opposed to reinstalling our life in a bigger apartment with a laundry room.

Change 1.

No. More. Malm.

We bought it because it was simply designed and affordable, but I think I have scars on my shin from our Malm bed. And it’s huge! So, we are ditching the bed, and having a low mattress…but not in the way I used to (simplicity in youth looks a little slovenly, now that I think about it). We’ll go for something a little more like this:

Change 2. House Plants everywhere (and alive). I‘ll put in the effort to water, I swear!

I’m emotionally ready to have a ton of plants indoors: trees, philodendron, and some little ones for texture.

Change 3. Get low.

Our current apartment is so small that I always looked up: our dressers and bookshelves are tall to preserve precious square feet.

However, this next apartment is bigger, and has windows on three sides (four if you count the surprising and somewhat creepy ‘building hole’ window), and want to keep it looking wide open. We’ll be making low bookshelves and dressers throughout the house.

Totally in love

with my Tomo navy leather sac from This Is Ground.

It’s for your tech, but it’s a casual-but-still-a-bit-luxe (amazing leather) update to the rectangular clutch I’ve been carrying for years.

Jody Rogac

Friday, January 31st, 2014

I met Jody Rogac last week on the set of the movie I was working on.

She was shooting behind the scenes and taking portraits. Her work is calm but intense, striking yet casual, honest and beautiful, quiet but memorable. I really love it.

Here are some of my favorite shots of hers, and so many more are on her website.

(love love LOVE this picture of our mutual friend Nancy)

you can buy her recent book, In Between, at Alldayeveryday’s online shop.

Movie business

Monday, January 27th, 2014

I just finished up a segment of the film I’m doing the costumes for: Austin Lynch’s Grey House.

It was a really cool experience.

Austin was so calm and awesome, the star of this segment, the incredible Aurore Clement was wonderful, and I feel like I understand the “movie business” a little (teeny tiny) bit more now.
