Statement Earrings

Happiest of days to you, my dear reader! Unless you've been in a cave for the past four or five months, I'll wager you've noticed the statement earring trend. I overheard a man at the big box store say that "Earrings sure look bigger than they used to!" You know a trend is big when… Continue reading Statement Earrings

Summer Capsule 2018

Hope your day is happy, dearest reader! We are now well into June, and my summer capsule is sorting itself out. If you've been reading any time at all, you'll know that I am a capsule wardrobe fan.

Business Dress

Off the Shoulder!

Happy day, dear reader! It is hard to go anywhere this past year without falling all over the off-the-shoulder (or it's younger sister the cold-shoulder) top, tunic, or dress. They are absolutely everywhere! They are cute. They are sassy. They show off a body part that stays appealing longer than many others as we age.… Continue reading Off the Shoulder!

Obsession: White Watches

Happy day to you, dear reader! This was not today's originally scheduled post. This was not a post on my planner at all. This one came out of nowhere and blindsided me. I had, as my husband would say, "a craving flung upon me." Everywhere I look, everywhere I go, are white watches. And I… Continue reading Obsession: White Watches

Personality

Split Personality Wardrobe

Happy day, dear reader! I was talking to a woman at the mall last week (People talk to me everywhere I go. I'm approachable. What can I say?) who was complaining that her closet is schizophrenic. Clearly, her closet cannot suffer from mental illness, but I understood her to say that her closet is not… Continue reading Split Personality Wardrobe

Beauty

What Do You Do?

Happy day, dear reader! I ran across this little beauty questionnaire out in the blogosphere, and was tagged by a friend (?) to share. Here goes! The good, the bad, and the potentially embarrassing... 1. Eyelash Curler – Yes or No? YES! Sadly, everyday. Even when I am not wearing mascara. Which is rare. I… Continue reading What Do You Do?
