Today is so mild I find it hard to believe that it is actually December. I decided to take advantage of the weather and do an outfit post since it has been ages since the last one. I got a little edit happy with Picasa but couldn’t resist the cinemascope filter and collage option.
The Fraas Touch Screen Compatible Gloves and Scala Sinamay Feather Spray Headband were sent to me by Lipton Publicity.
I’m wearing the chartreuse tech gloves (style 060579). The gloves work great with my phone, and I quite like the ruffle hem. However, I have small hands and found the gloves a little too big, but these gloves should fit average sized hands just fine.
The Scala Sinamay Feather Spray Headband (style LDF7) looks fabulous. I love the fact that the headband is not really noticeable when wearing the fascinator. The net bow and feathers will dress up any outfit making this fascinator perfect for the holiday party season.
The Distant Hours by Kate Morton Kate Morton’s novels are like lazy summer days that seem peaceful until an unexpected storm comes upon you destroying your serenity. Last night I finished reading The Distant Hours, a moody tale of family secrets and haunting tragedy. From Goodreads: A long lost letter arrives in the post and […]
I’m not sure how it happened, but Thanksgiving is next week. I feel like it should still be September not the middle of November.

Among my friends, it is a well known fact that one day I am going to grow up and become the crazy cat lady. I may only have one cat right now, but that is because no one will let me buy another. Everyone knows where a second kitty will lead. While I usually content […]
Who doesn’t fantasize over a pair of glass slippers? Disney’s 1950 animation set the standard high for the dream shoe. Since then, designers and costumers have re-imagined Cinderella shoes from bejeweled platforms to jelly flats. With the release of Disney’s “Cinderella Diamond Edition”, everyone from Christian Louboutin to DSW is getting in on the action. Below are […]
This week I had the opportunity to audition for an AMC pilot. After my agent called I realized that I had not updated my headshots. Refusing to give in to panic, I grabbed my photographer mom and headed outdoors. Hoodie: Juicy Couture T-shirt: J. Crew Jeans: Joe’s Shoes: Nike Ideally, an actor goes to a […]
Recently, I wrote about seven key basics that make planning outfits a cinch. A capsule wardrobe is a similar idea. A capsule wardrobe is a collection of clothes and accessories that includes only items considered essential. The pieces should compliment each other in order to create multiple outfits. Planning a capsule wardrobe is a great way to […]
Vogue December 1998 This week’s IFB Project asks bloggers to share their most memorable fashion moment. For me it was the first time I read Vogue. I was thirteen years old, and my dad surprised my mom with the December issue. It was kind of a big deal for two reasons. First, my family did […]
This week’s IFB Project is The All-Shoes-One-Photo Challenge. I’ll be honest. These are not all of my shoes. A move earlier this year means that I still have random boxes packed away with shoes I do not wear very often and even a few childhood favorites I will never wear again. However, even with those pairs […]
