Everything Old Is New…And Cute

A delicious white fur stole with rhinestone brooch will grace my shoulders next month at the wedding of Oldest Chicken. No, it's not real fur; I'm not a barbarian. Pfft. It's a throwback to the glamour days when ladies made an entrance, sipped champagne from coupes and added stems to their cigarettes. Aside from the… Continue reading Everything Old Is New…And Cute

Catholic Girls Namaste…

Years ago, with a house filled with small children, a dog, a cat, a rat, a hamster and a husband who traveled for work, giving up something for Lent struck me as odd. How could giving up chocolate make me better when all I really wanted was Calgon to take me away? I decided that… Continue reading Catholic Girls Namaste…

A Page From Ms. Vreeland…

Summer fashion suffers here on the surface of the sun. Too dressed? Bake from the inside out. Too bare? Look like you believe you possess thighs from younger years. All we can do is stay inside, wish for fall and take a page from Diana Vreeland. The Divine One, oh you don't know her? Vreeland… Continue reading A Page From Ms. Vreeland…

Excuses From the Poorly Dressed…

Every few months or so we are assaulted by the opinions of the poorly dressed. Clouded judgement can be found anywhere. Nowhere is it more misguided than men commenting on clothing. Boys, boys, boys. Unless you are reading this swathed in Armani, a power tie and a pair of wing tips, don't opine on tout… Continue reading Excuses From the Poorly Dressed…

Do You Hear The Angels Singing?…

10:16 PM Fall fashion comes late to those living upon the sun's surface. It is mid-October before the weather breaks enough to consider a boot, sleeve or jewel-toned cardi. Listening to a trending fashion report while applying my outside face, the heart flutters. There are a number of interesting mentions but one is so very… Continue reading Do You Hear The Angels Singing?…

It’s All About the Shoes Dahling…

The Huffington Post ran an interesting little piece titled, "23 Trends Guys Hate and Women Love." Excuse me? Have men forgotten that unless they are gay or a designer or a gay designer, they have diddly squat to say concerning what women wear? Did these gentlemen forget their place? Evidently it slipped their minds that… Continue reading It’s All About the Shoes Dahling…

Hagatha and The Headhunter

Some free time last week is spent with a recruiter--an employment recruiter. Very interesting. She wants to "tease out" my talents, goals, preferred income level and perfect job situation. Somehow, none, none, millions and write all day do not seem like correct responses so I supply answers of a more palpable variety. She is very… Continue reading Hagatha and The Headhunter

From Ass Camo to Polyester Suits…Wear This, Not That

Got a call from Middle Chicken and Law School Fashionista. The pair fascinates me with their soul sister finishing each other's sentences and united opinions on things large and small. The reason for the call was fairly serious business involving important law school matters I swear will stay in the vault. So, basically, I can't… Continue reading From Ass Camo to Polyester Suits…Wear This, Not That

Fashionista Fantasies…

Spring fashion is less interesting to most than the Fall collections. Me? I'm a sucker for any season but spring generally follows a pattern--a little dash of floral, a pop of color. This spring, however, brings us most interesting news. Miss Anna, as in Wintour, yes the Devil of Prada fame, got a little promotion… Continue reading Fashionista Fantasies…

Becoming A Businesswoman….

As we know, I spent the majority of my years raising a husband and children. No offense to my mother-in-law, but it took almost as many years to raise the husband into something I could live with as it did the kids. As you also know, the job that paid, past tense, the bills was… Continue reading Becoming A Businesswoman….
