I’ve written about locally owned and run website Mode-sty on the blog here and for the Star Tribune, and am always happy to promote what Zahra is doing. So I was tickled when she offered to send me an item from her spring offerings. This lively floral midi skirt is right up my alley, and allowed me to wear red, white, and blue together without feeling overly flag-like. Also loved working in this necklace from Veronica Riley Martens, whose work I’ve admired for years and years. (Proof here.) Finally nabbed my own piece, albeit a small one, and had fun working it into this mix. read more

After much planning, organizing, and fundraising, we launched the Leaders of Today and Tomorrow program year a few weeks ago, and I wore this to welcome our mentors and fellows to our very first workshop. I love wearing red to our workshops because it’s such a bold and powerful color, and decided to do a bright red and burgundy mix to keep it classic. The workshop was a great success, and we’re already gearing up for our next one! read more
