Style: Scouts Honor

I found this old Boy Scout shirt when I was digging through my closet and decided I really wanted to wear it with something sparkly and girly for contrast. Of course, a grown woman wearing a Boy Scout shirt meant the comments from the peanut gallery were in full force: "Are you going camping? Can you pitch my tent? Did you earn your badge in (insert blatant ignorance here)?" Sigh. I started to wonder why I bought that shirt at the thrift store

Fashion Math

I'm not really a math person. As a left-brained creative type, reading, spelling, and language have always been my favorite subjects.

Has the impending spring season had an impact on your style?

Trousers, J. Crew; oxford shirt, vest, and suspenders, thrifted; shoes, Charles David; Porkpie hat, Hats in the Belfry; Watch, Timex

Style: Like the Boys

Sometimes I want to be like the boys. No, not in the smelly-feet-raggedy-drawers-don't-clean-up-after-yourself way. I mean in the important way: wardrobe wise, of course. It's not a new idea: women have been "borrowing" men's clothing for years to great effect: Think of silver screen stars Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn draping themselves in men's suiting, the iconic movie wardrobe of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, and the laid-back glamour of Yves St. Laurent's le smoking. Even the boys
