Happy day, dear reader! Fall finally feels "here"! I love cool crisp mornings, and sweaters and boots, and I really love Halloween. It's always been one of my favorite holidays. Even before it became the colossal money making behemoth that it is in modern America. (And spreading around the world...) I was gadding about on… Continue reading Halloween Tag
Fashion Seasons vs. Calendar Seasons Happy day, dear reader! Back in January, I wrote a post about Fashion Seasons vs. Calendar Seasons, and after some recent questions from friends and clients, it seems time to repeat it! (Albeit updated for our current time of year...) All over the blogosphere, trend reports from NY Fashion Week,… Continue reading What Are Fashion Seasons?
Happy day to you, dear reader! If you have been reading this blog for any time now, you probably realize that I have a problem with rules... I think rules are necessary. But fashion and style rules?

Lovely day, dear reader! An ode... O, jean jacket, jean jacket, what would I do. Were I ever to find my poor self without you? No zippers, no snaps, nor embroidery needed.

Hello, dear reader! Aging is no reason to loose your style groove. Women (and men!) in middle-age (or above) complain that it is hard to find clothing that doesn't feel frumpy. I get it.

Some of the nicest people I know are! Happy day, dear reader! I know a woman who calls herself a Seasonal Slob. She is a summer-loving lady, even when that means 95 degree heat and 95% humidity. She does better in the warm weather and hates to be cold. If you met her in the… Continue reading Are You a Seasonal Slob?
I'm not much of a resolution maker... I love the fresh start of a new year as much as anyone, but sticking to resolutions is not my strong suit. I prefer to take each day or hour new as it comes and start fresh where I am rather than wait for someone else's marker. Since… Continue reading Style Resolutions
