Six pm. and I heard something scurry, looked left and then right and I began to worry. It had only been 3 weeks since I lived in this house and I was pretty certain that my roommate was a mouse. I found a hole at the bottom of the wall, peeking in I must have looked 8 feet tall. But as scary as I looked to my new found friend, it popped out it’s head and I ran in the den. Continue reading
I love the idea behind the Raid My Closet Challenge. With an inventory overflowing with far more clothes than I can keep track of and more shoes than a Jimmy Choo store, it makes sense to dig around in the inventory rather than buy something new. We all know that there have been great advances in the technology of clothing design and that there’s a reason some of the clothing moldering in our folders are not seeing the light of day anymore, but among those older clothes and shoes are gems that are just as good as ever.

Well, I am probably not singing at heaven’s gate, but I am wearing a heavenly dress from Lark, so I don’t mind stealing a phrase from Shakespeare.

Sometimes I put together an outfit that just appeals to my sense of fun and whimsy more than most and I end up wearing it for days, putting it back on after shooting another outfit, just because I love it so.

I cannot resist hair named after a real life hero – and most particularly I cannot resist hair named after a real life hero that is as gorgeous as this. I put it together with a practical outfit that the real Dorothy Day would have felt comfortable wearing. She may have been a reformer, an activist, a world-changer, but she also was a beautiful woman. The foundation for this look is the perfectly lovely and stunningly executed Anoorea skirt from MichaMi. I dithered over what jacket to wear, and chose the one from TOSL for it’s chunky, handknit homemade look. That had me looking for a lilac shirt and this one from Zaara was made to order.
