There was a time in my life when I’d gladly have wasted four or five hours a day sitting in front of my computer, ogling every personal style blog imaginable—from Adam Gallagher’s I Am Galla to Aimee Song’s Song of Style to Bryanboy to Garance Doré to Hanneli Mustaparta’s Hanneli to Jordan Reid’s Ramshackle Glam […]Read more "The Real Deal: The Style Diplomat’s Liz Dumdum"

It’s official: I am finally on Tumblr! Can’t believe it took me three or so years to give in!

That question, of course, goes to those who know me personally—friend or foe, I must say—because I just know that a couple of brows are going to raise, and they’d be, like, “Tell us something we don’t know,” or, “Show us something we […]Read more "Empire State of, Um, Month: My Month in Instagrams | August 2011"
