I made it through the wilderness

On Saturday I took a break from my post-magazine release Internet sabbatical to interact with real, live people at a party/fundraiser for the United Way billed as The Event of the Season. I have to say, hanging out in a penthouse condo overlooking the lights of downtown isn't a bad way to spend a few hours. The weather was still fairly balmy (for November, anyway), so I took the opportunity  to wear the...

In a blue dress

The return of early Fall or Indian Summer or whatever we're calling it when the temperature gets up to 70 degrees in November prompted me to dig in the back of my closet for something to wear.

I actually planned on wearing a...

Prints-ess Clash

I've never been one of those people who can artfully combine seemingly clashing prints in a Dries-y/Etro-ish way. I wish I was, but my limit seems to be two prints at a time, tops.However, I managed to squeeze in another pattern in the form of an accessory--a hat--instead of trying to pull off polka-dot pants or something. Keeping the other main elements (trousers, cardigan, belt) solid helps offset the floral hat, striped and floral blouse,...
