I Don’t Run Unless Something is Chasing Me

13 Mar logo

I don’t run. Well, I do if something is chasing me………like a lion, a bumble bee, a bill collector or an illness. Sunday I was forced to run. It didn’t matter though ’cause it still caught me. A nasty virus that is. So, this is me.

Sickly but so trying to head out the door stylish.

Stylist Tip  ::  For a feminine yet trendy look, mix a waxed denim pant with a sweet chiffon print blouse.

Perhaps you Could Wear Purple Velvet

Honestly, some of the pictures that are snapped for this blog crack me up. I can’t even begin to tell you how many hit the trashcan. But, today I thought we would have a little fun at my expense. Take for instance these shots.

“Whoa, what was that? “

Followed by this overtly joyful facial expression.

Perhaps, I should just shoot my heels today.

Oh, wait, this shot is fairly normal. Well, as normal as this gal gets.

Stylist Tips  ::  Your smile is one of your best accessories. Wear it often. Don’t worry about matching your accessories. That’s boring. Purple velvet pants? Absolutely! Fashion should be fun.

Stylist Tip  ::  Black heels would have paired nicely with the black belt (not that I always match my accessories ’cause I don’t) but nude heels elongate legs and hold the focus on the dress not the feet.

It’s a Mod, Mod World

25 Feb logo

My car does this crazy, totally uncontrollable, quirky lil’ thing. At the first sign of a thrift store, consignment boutique, estate or garage sale it suddenly veers towards the flashing open sign, screeches into a parking spot and ejects me, purse in hand, out the sunroof. Weird, I know but what am I supposed to do about it? As I see it, the best reaction is to take action. So, I limp on in and shop.

Last week, my cars totally uncontrollable ejection caused me to discover this delicious mod coat……..for $30!

Aww, what a glorious, wonderful, warm weekend it twas. The sunny state of California lived up to its name and I say, Hooray! I even overheard someone say that they were headed to the beach…..ugh, still a bit too cold for a dip in the Pacific Ocean but wonderful weather for a walk in the beautiful, yet bare, vineyards.
