Happy day, dear reader! Flat out apologies for a last minute, thrown together post. I had another post, but was altogether unhappy with the negative and snarky 'tude it was taking, so I changed tack completely and decided to focus on something that makes/made me happy.

Colorful Capsules

Happy day, dear reader! I'm working on a few "best of" type posts together for your amusement whilst I take a break. (If I'm writing this, it's really not a break, is it?) Oh well!

Wardrobe 101

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!
