Chic Sightings: Dots!
Now that it's snowed in Chicago, it feels strange to post the very warm-weather outfits that I saw over the weekend.  But spring WILL arrive - it always has... This dress was amazingly attractive; while I don't in any way need more clothes, this would reall...

Paris: Where We Stayed, What We Heard
Just an ordinary room at the Hotel des Grands Hommes Almost 20 years ago, when Belovedest and I first went to Paris, we stayed at the Hotel des Grands Hommes (the hotel of the great men, NOT the hotel of the big guys).  I don't even remember how the hotel w...

Hello Janice, I've looked over your blog and google plus, but couldn't find a way to contact you.. I've been nominated for the Lieber Award and have to name 5 more blogs that I like as I participate in the award. I've just found your site and love it. If you are curious about the award, please visit this site to see what it is.

Struggling with a "Good Deal"
I get lots of offers, and I'm sure you do too.  Often, I find myself thinking about the offer a whole lot more than I really should, and a LOT more than the offer deserves...  How to sort this out?  Advice welcome; let me share with you my current dilemma. ...

Dabbling in the Trends: Pattern Mixing
I saw mixed patterns in almost every window display in New York - along with color blocking, it was the ubiquitous fashion suggestion for spring. You know perfectly well that I'm not a big believer in the following of trends, but sometimes a fleeting style ...

Paris: Politics and Pollution
The first thing we noticed when we got to Paris last Saturday was that there was an election soon!  The Paris government very wisely puts up temporary "walls" upon which the political posters are affixed - a brilliant solution that minimizes the amount of p...

Chic Sightings: Variations on a Sweater Theme
Yesterday's double posting was, in fact, a mistake on my part - the pattern mixing post was supposed  to be this morning's post.  But I'm having well-documented issues with Blogger, and they chose to give you the gift of two posts yesterday; who am I to arg...

This is Why I Blog
The core of my wardrobe, right now Thanks so much to the reader who steered me to the New York Times Magazine article: Sign of the Times/Slaves No More by Cathy Horyn. It ends thus: ...a woman of indeterminate age who knows what she likes and has shrugged o...
