4th Street Finds

I've worked with the Dress for Success 4th Street Boutique before, most notably on Style Tour and the Christmas window (I heard the Art Museum might use the long red Mandarin Jacket from the window in some sort of exhibit!). A while back, the latent editor in me came up with the idea of 4th Street Finds, an online mini-magazine of sorts showcasing the best of the boutique!Each week, Susi and

Red, no pink

Even though red is officially my Second Favorite Color, I don't own much in the way of red clothing. Weird.

Philippines Photo Diary

Near the end of January, FriendBoy and I took a trip to the Philippines for a friend's wedding and a much-needed respite from the cold weather. Snacks On a Plane. Sorry, I couldn't resist. After a looong trip from Cincinnati (including a "hidden" re-fueling stop in Japan), we landed in Manila a full day and a half after we left. Thanks, International Date Line. We met up with the two other couples on the
