Happy day dear reader! Previously, I wrote a post about mindful dressing, but I may have gotten the cart in front of the horse! You can dress mindfully with whatever is in your closet, but those daily choices will be easier if the clothes in your closet are mindfully purchased. One might ask, "Is it… Continue reading Mindful Shopping

Happy day, dear reader! A client texted me the other day with a dressing room selfie, asking what I thought. (Yes, this is something I do for my clients, although I can't always answer right away!)

Shoes, shoes, SHOES! Some people love 'em, and cannot imagine life without a variety. Others see them as a necessity to cover their feet to get into stores and restaurants. The latter are usually the ones asking me what shoes do I really need? (Read: How few can I get away with owning?) As with… Continue reading Shoe Wardrobe
I have what Rudyard Kipling called in The Elephant's Child, 'satiable curtiosity. I am curious about everything, so last fall, when the Spring/Summer 2018 fashion shows were in the news, I was making notes. Not looking for clothing!
