Don’t Call it a Comeback

Man, I've missed this. I've missed you! I don't really enjoy writing (ironic that I do so much of it), but I recently realized how much I like blogging. I think it's the feedback and sense of community, in addition to the fact that sometimes it feels really good to get it all out, you know? I regret that I've been so bad about posting--that was partly because I'm a master procrastinator, but mostly because...

Street Style Inspiration

One of the best things about the interwebz is the rise of street style photos. Sure the world wide web has other semi-useful purposes, but when it comes to checking out what other people are wearing, it really starts to earn its keep. These are a few of my current favorites. Clearly, I'm feeling the Parisian dandy/deconstructed stage costume look right now.

Style: English Countryside

The weather goddess was nice enough to give us a break from hair-frizzing 90-degree humidity and grace us with cool breezes and temperatures in the 70's. All the better to break out the riding boots (I've missed my boots and sweaters!) and a thrifted plaid blazer on the way to a late breakfast. Plus Cortez (kitty) is doing much better so I was all "What's all this, then?" and in a really good mood. Blazer, necklaces,...

Interview with: M641

M641 business partners Subu and Ina had been friends for years before launching clothing line Madras 641 in Spring 2007, just months after putting together the initial business plan. "In January 2007 during a visit together while our little ones were playing she shared her dream to have her own clothing label one day. Since both of us were at home full-time now with our little ones, we realized had so much in common and...

Style: 90's Throwback

A few facts: This past weekend was hot as monkey balls. I don't get rid of clothes, so I wind up with a lot of what I like to call "personal vintage"--stuff I know I should've given away years ago, but have kept for so long that it's coming back. This circa 1997 Express romper absolutely falls under that category. See also: 8th grade jeans My kitty is very sick and I'm not sure how much...

Anybody Home?

I've been such a bad blogger lately. Between work and writing and tending to my sick kitty and being plain ol' tired, I just haven't felt like it. I'm thinking of cutting back to two posts per week instead of my usual three, just to give myself some breathing room. *Sigh*. Why is life so haaaaard? </unnecessary drama> On the plus side, I had a small picture in an ad for Lucky Style Spotter in the September...

Caribbean Queen

Reading about everyone's tropical vacations this summer when the furthest I'm destined to travel is Northern Kentucky (which yes, is just as exciting as it sounds. As in not at all.) has been a bit depressing. I like hot weather and beaches and drinks with umbrellas in them, too! One third of my prayers was answered when it got up to the 90's this past weekend, so I decided to look on the bright side and...

Random Fashion Inspiration

I figure we've known each other long enough to expose you to my errant babble and rambling life reflections: I discovered Scandanavian designer Henrik Vibskov a few months ago and am LOVING his effortlessly blase pieces. Did y'all ever "design" new outfits with Fashion Plates and a bunch of stubby colored pencils? And did you play with Designer Denim Barbie? I remember those pink molded plastic cowboy boots like it was yesterday...
