About Tammy Wood

I may lay claim to being a clean freak, but my I strive for chillin-on-a-chaise-lounge-on-the-riviera-sipping-caipirinhas style. When not at home with my photog husband and our satellite eared dog Paco, I'm writing papers and teaching French to the next generation. I watch too many sports, have been known to break it down on the dance floor, bake a mean bread, and train the sh*t out of my stubborn dog.

Animals Ask People: Caris Reid

Animals Ask People: Caris Reid

I first met Caris a little more than a year ago at the Richardson, where we quickly delved into an intense conversation about all things occult over tequila cocktails.

The Stella McCartney Pottering Bustier

The Stella McCartney Pottering Bustier

Sheer tops, crop tops, spaghetti-straps, racer backs showing side boob: all tops that I would like to wear, but know that if I did I’d be stared at for all the wrong reasons. Let’s just say that there are certain fashion trends that sometimes you have to accept to let go… until… you find a(…)

All Parts Summer: The Lucyna from Aldo

All Parts Summer: The Lucyna from Aldo

This summer we’re being bombarded from all sides with bright colors and prints, a scary thought if you’re like me, big on New York blacks, neutrals, and perhaps the occasional St. Tropez boat stripe. That doesn’t mean we can’t handle the occasional pattern, so enter the Lucyna flat from Aldo. I can’t think of a(…)

Netflix Fix: House of Cards

Netflix Fix: House of Cards

In my household, we’re either watching sports or we’re trying to figure out what show we’re willing to get hooked on next. What the latter usually amounts to is an endless amount of channel surfing that amounts to nothing. I had heard about House of Cards when it came out and the crew was touring(…)

Vaunte: Shopping Through Closets

Vaunte: Shopping Through Closets

I somehow magically stumbled across Vaunte.com yesterday, a website that is an instant obsession. I had no idea what was awaiting me when I clicked on a link to shop Jennifer Mankin’s closet – who is, by the way, the owner of the Bird boutiques we all hate to love. It’s a magical world where(…)

French Would Teach: Yelle

French Would Teach: Yelle

I was searching furiously for a video clip that would help me teach my students breakfast-related vocab words and I came across the French band Yelle. I found a simple interview that takes place in an American-themed diner in Paris. In it, Julie Budet, lead singer of the group, talks about the first time she(…)
