Thank You, America!

After attending Obama's swearing-in yesterday, I really felt the need to represent the US! While the steps of Cincinnati's City Hall aren't exactly the White House, I didn't want the feeling of being in DC among the exuberance and excitement of the inaugural events to end. I decided to put my best quasi-political foot forward in red, white, and blue stripes, red ankle boots, and a beribboned porkpie hat. For me, the magnitude of yesterday can be...

Packing for the Inauguration

I'm on my way to DC for the inauguration! Okay, technically, it's not the inauguration--it's the swearing in. I doubt I'll be able to see anything important, but I really wanted to be there amidst the love and excitement. So, since I have a long bus trip ahead (yes, that's right: bus. Pray for me.) I spent some time (read: 20 minutes. Because I procrastinate. I'm the queen of "Eh, that can wait.") considering what to pack. I need to be comfy (10...

Inspiration: The Original Blair

Yes, I watch Gossip Girl just as obsessively as everyone else even though I'm waaayyy past their target demographic age. But that also means I'm old enough to remember another bossy Queen B years before Ms. Waldorf came along--Blair Warner of The Facts of Life. Blair was a bossy, stuck-up, rich bitch who strutted around the campus of the exclusive Eastland School for Girls as if she owned the place--actually, I think at the end of...

One Piece, Three Ways

Since I'm a pack rat at heart, another one of my resolutions is to find new ways to wear things that are already in my closet. This philsophy also happens to be a little easier on my bank account than my usual "I have nothing to wear so let's go shopping and spend money I don't have" line of reasoning. Inspired by Marian over at The House of Style looking fab in her strapless velvet top, I...

Style: Short & Sweet

On yet another thrifting adventure, I found this sweet little cheongsam-inspired dress. I liked the colors, the fabric, and the details, but the dress itself was too long--not long enough to be a gown, but long enough to look matronly. Y'all know I don't do matronly. So, I took it to Nobby's, a family-owned custom tailoring shop that's been in downtown Cincinnati for over 50 years. As soon as I walk in the door, the tailor...

Style: Off the Wall

Some days it can be difficult to put an outfit together--especially since I usually roll out of bed an hour before I'm supposed to be at the office. On those days, when I'm stumbling around in the dark in a semi-coherent sleep haze, a dress is my best option. But how do you add interest when you only have one piece to work with? Personally, I like to add pieces of various colors and textures: a striped...

Inspiration: Witch One?

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? I was coerced into watching Disney's Enchanted, which wasn't the witty satire I expected it to be, but was fairly entertaining nonetheless.  Though I'm not really a pastels-and-flowers type of girl, I watched the end credits roll with an odd feeling of feminine power mixed with girlish vulnerability. One part of me wanted to sing and dance while cartoon birds circled my head and bunnies hopped around my...
