Death of a Salesgirl

Based on my need for an income and a knack for perfect timing, I decided to get into the real estate game.  ME!  A new divorcee with a  real estate license, wearing beige Micheal Kors suits, Tori Burch heels, and carrying a black leather Chanel bag with my many important files.  I envision myself driving rich couples around to waterfront mansions, and magnificent Florida estates on famous golf courses....more

War and Fashion

“…the charming full skirts falling to just below the knee did suggest a decorous army wife in olden times…” I think the person at Style.com that commented on the Burberry Spring Summer 2012 doesn’t have a clue of an idea what it’s like to be an army wife. If someone you love is at the battlefield, you couldn’t possibly care about being ‘decorous’. ...more
And thanks for putting me on Blogher. I think I by now have had more people reading this ...more

Shopping Miracle: Bargain DVF Dress

Even though the Rapture didn't happen this weekend, I did encounter a shopping miracle. On our way back from Atlanta, my mom and I stopped at Tuesday Morning in Dalton, Ga. I love Tuesday Morning because the inventory is so random. You never know what you'll find in there....more

Project Runway recap: The WTFinale

You may notice this recap is late in coming. You may notice it's not going to be the usual blow-by-blow, moment-by-moment, outfit-by-outfit recap that I usually try to write. You may notice I have trouble saying anything at all about this year's season finale. Image courtesy Lifetime And all of that is because I still cannot wrap my head around the outcome. And I know I'm not alone. ...more

And yes, I always prefer the nice designers to the dramatic ones :)

Fashion Week - Michael Kors, Nanette Lepore, and Trends for Fall '09

Alternate title: OMG I WENT TO FASHION WEEK!  I was thrilled and honored when BlogHer contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I'd be willing to cover (and attend!) Fall 2009 Fashion Week. (Honestly, I don't really know if they would have extended the offer, had they known that I thought "Versace" rhymed with "her lace" until well into my teen years, but fortunately, I like to think I've made up for lost time in terms of my fashion knowledge.) Naturally, I said yes immediately, and commenced my Dance of Joy. ...more

I swear, if I still had my old Purple Rain t-shirt I would wear it all the ...more

The Value of a Label

Michael Kors had me not at 'Hello' but at "She looks like a paper brioche!" when commenting on a Project Runway contestant's awful ensemble. But even before he started pouring salt on the wounds of hopeful designers, I was intrigued by his clothing line. It was classic and refined but always with a bit of a twist. I currently own the perfect black a-line skirt designed by him but it has (bonus!) pockets. Perfect for those of us with a propensity to double fist during cocktail hour. ...more

His clothing line is really pretty wonderful most of the time. However, his perfumes reek on ...more

Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2009

Michael Kors just recently released his new Pre-Fall 2009 Collection.  I am not wild about it but there are definitely a few pieces worth highlighting. I have to also admit that as soon as I ...more
