I forgot my mantra

The clocks turn back this weekend, which means it's officially Fall, which means the next six months will consist of me gazing longingly at my summer sundresses and cursing my parents' choice to raise me in frosty Ohio instead of on a lovely Caribbean island where fruity drinks in pineapples and naps on the beach are a way of life. Thanks, mom. But I digress. What was I saying? Oh, right, it's Fall. The onset...

‘Cause I’m a lay-dy

Every now and then, I feel like a proper lady--you know, the type of woman for whom vacuuming while wearing heels and a pointy bra is an everyday occurrence.I don't have a bullet bra (gotta work on that), but I felt like a tight sweater and full skirt worn with pointy heels would be adequate, especially when paired with a headscarf and pompadour-ian Janelle Monae/Shingai Shoniwa-inspired updo.Note that the sweater is cropped. I bought it...
