Summer Skin
Summer is the season of change for this little seaside town; tourists in, military families out. We retreat from the chaos of congested grocery stores and crazed traffic to our normally calm neighborhood, only to find it mad with moving trucks and awash in ...

White
It's been a while since I posted here, in fact, it has been over three months-- 102 days to be exact.  In this absence, I turned 30, an age that I still can't quite wrap my head around.  In my younger years, I hung so many of my hopes and dreams on 30. At 2...

It's Not Halloween

Verdant
Here we are, once again, in that lush green limbo of late spring, when the first flush of seasonal color has faded away, and the burnt brown of summer has yet to descend.     This time of year, mother nature dresses herself in green and white, wrapped up in...

Sweater of the 70s, Revisited
Before I took the pixie plunge , I was a firm believer that my hair had little to do with my confidence and self-esteem. What I would learn, only after the big chop, is that my confidence (wavering though it is) is derived from every aspect of my appearance...

Aviatrix
  It has been a while since I've actually enjoyed writing this blog.  At times it has felt like a chore, trying to churn out posts thinking I should be worried about blog traffic, statistics and engaging an audience.  There have been times in the last few y...

Nearly Complementary
Since I've been dressing myself, my life has been marked and measured by the clothing I've worn.  In adolescence, there were lots of olive green tops, overalls, and carpenter's jeans-- a style shaped by a decided effort to fit in. When my efforts at normal ...

Short Pants and Snoods
Working from home is a strange thing.  Some days, I may only leave the house to get the mail, walk the dogs or tend to the yard, others I might be traipsing across the countryside, making post office runs and attending auctions, estate sales, and flea marke...

Chrismas dress-- thrifted vintage Woolrich Christmas has come and gone and for the first time in my life, I am thankful.  In the past, the holiday season was always something I looked forward to so fondly-- the warmth, the wonder and the simple magic of the...
