This is what I look like when it’s over 90 degrees and humid as all get-out. Unfussy, breezy dress that won’t clamp into my midsection the way a skirt would, big earrings as an alternative to a necklace that would just stick to my collarbone, and comfy, open sandals. Days like this make me doubly grateful for my short hair. A year ago, I’d have looked like this but with considerably more frizz! read more

As you can probably guess, this “duster” is actually a vintage dress worn open. Buttoned up, it makes me look like a houndstooth-festooned milk jug. With legs.

Something about oversized houndstooth just makes me happy. read more

Well, friends, there’s nothing quite like having all your comments, post topics, and tags disappear to give a day of tech support dealings that fast-and-furious feeling. I’m kind of amazed that my head didn’t fall off. Seems like everything on the site is back to normal now, but with all the hiccups I’ve had recently, I probably won’t relax until it has remained normal for at least a week. Oy. OY, I tell you. read more
