I want this!!!

I LOVE this use of a kimono-style top! Instead of a cardigan or hoodie, wear it as an outer layer to stay warm in air conditioned buildings. Thank you to Cara (is that your name? I took the photo weeks ago so I forgot already!!!) for letting me take your photo. If anyone knows where I can...

Dudes in Sleeveless ...

We liked the look of these two lads at Time Market the other week. (Mom gave us permission to photograph son, of course. Merci!!) Grown up guy on Time Market patio Little guy inside

Some say the desert ...

What do they know? Our flowers just bloom differently. That’s what makes them extra lovely–you don’t know quite when or where you’ll find a gorgeous blossom, nor how long it will...

Pregnancy, Tucson style Aug08

Pregnancy, Tucson st...

I was hanging out with my friend Rebecca the other day. She’s 6+ months pregnant, and we were discussing the relative lameness of maternity clothes. (I am well past the point of needing such garments, but I can recall.) She was wearing a cute striped non-maternity skirt from Target (I...

Stylish Stephanie

We ran into this lovely mama at Playformance the other day. I admired the way she wore red, white, and blue without seeming like she was celebrating the Fourth of July. Her look struck me as fresh, slightly nautical, both polished and creative. Brava, bellissima!...

Above ground pools&#...

I wish I could find the email, but sometime last year, my BFF Alicia sent me a message that said something like “On a scale of one to ten, exactly HOW tacky are above-ground pools?” I didn’t know what to say, not having considered such things before. But I assured her that if...

Hi there! We’r...

Had a bit of a summer vacation, which I was told is not wise to announce on the internet, so…dead air. But we’re back, and we’ll have a few posts in a row. First, a look at my fashion inspiration, my daughter Clementine. She has a vision, and she rocks...

One of many reasons ...

Purple Rain sing-a-long at the Loft. Well, I love the Loft in general, for so many reasons, but this was my third time seeing the Purple Rain sing-a-long and it just doesn’t get old. Lucky us! What have been your favorite events at the...

Shardiney at Brookly...

We love everything about Shardiney’s look. The tiny horse necklace and awesome shirt–I covet them both! She served my daughter strawberry gelato while we waited for our yummy white pizza last weekend. Totally loving Fourth Avenue right now–emptied of students (not that I...

Downtown Tucson

Last weekend downtown… Tap & Bottle, food trucks, pinball, awesome style on beautiful people! (And is that a drawing of Genet Classic in the background of the photo of the couple at T & B??) couple at T & B sidewalk po

Wow, I am really sla...

Sorry. Is anyone still reading? I need help! I need an intern! Here is a sweet moment from Sunday, post-Cyclovia. Adrian and his papa Jesus engaged in pizza-eatin’ and action-figure wrestling on 4th Avenue, after having watched the Lucha Libre fun in Feria del...

Alex M, always dashi...

Alex Mastrangelo always looks sharp. He’s one of the three best-dressed Tucson men in my opinion (Kelland T. and Greg A. are two others that come to mind, and of course my husband…and my co-writer Mike McKisson…MIKE START POSTING PLEASE, gentle nudge) Alex’s wife...

Spring colors

Wait, it’s not yet spring. Whatever. The colors are...

Vintage sunglasses! ...

On my way home from work I saw a sign advertising vintage eyeglasses for sale, in the Little Chapel on campus. I stopped in an lo! whoa! amazingly lovely things. There’s a great back story too–but go, and find out for yourself. The sale continues tomorrow. If you find the perfect...

Cute couple on a war...

I love her hair, her sunglasses, her tattoo….her pants, belt, that darling jacket–everything! Plus she’s just super pretty, no? They both have great shoes, and fabulous smiles. Thanks for letting me take some snaps!! (There were taken while having breakfast with my son at...

5 Points Market

Lucky lucky lucky us! A wondrous market and restaurant opened up south of downtown Tucson, in 5 Points, just a few blocks from our house! Lincoln and I went there for lunch on Saturday and had a fantastic meal. The huevos rancheros are not over-hyped: If someone tells you that 5 Points makes...

Happy 2014!

Looking forward to uncovering Tucson’s unique style for another year…. For now: me, today, on a desert picnic with my sweetheart. That’s my...

Super Stylish Sarah

A couple nights ago I was at Hub with my assistant editor (that would be my five-year-old daughter Clementine, she of the magnificent fashion sensibility) and we both noticed a very pretty woman with an awesome outfit. Luckily I’d remembered to bring a Tucson in Style card so I could ask...
