Family Portrait

The dogs have totally stolen the show here. I give up.

Dress, Jovovich Hawk for Target. Leggings, Amour. Boots, Ariat. Sunglasses, Girlprops. Bag, Nine West. Necklace, vintage.

If you’re still reading and not dead on the floor from cuteness overload, I’ll make the following comments: 1. This dress transitions well from classy event to dog walks at the mall. 2. I got my hair styled at the aforementioned classy event and love it!


Thankfully, I had a reason to shower, do my hair and makeup, and put on real clothes. Otherwise I would have spent all weekend in my puppy grubbies.

I snapped these pictures on the way to a beauty event at one of my customers. If only I could have stayed forever in the land of skin care, hairstyling, and sangria. (Just kidding . . . I was happy to return to puppy watch at home. Sort of.)

Jovovich Hawk for Target. Belt, thrifted. Shoes, Seychelles. Sunglasses, Girlprops. Earrings, street fair. Bag, Caprice Handbags (thrifted and vintage).

Fit and Flare

I think I’ll always be a fit and flare girl at heart. I may experiment with blouson silhouettes and pencil skirts, but today’s shape is best for my shape.

Dress, Gap. Shirt (worn under dress), American Apparel. Boots, Lauren Ralph Lauren. Sunglasses and belt, Target. Bag, Merona.

When I wear a hat AND sunglasses, I feel as if I’m in disguise. Masking my identity. Hiding from the world. But all I’m hiding are my greasy roots and squinty eyes. I think everyone knows it’s me from my kooky outfits.

Dress, thrifted, vintage, and shortened. Vest, AC-3998 (cut from a thrifted jacket). Tights, Target. Shoes and bag, Clark’s. Hat, Nine West. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Scarf, Frangi (consignment).

I chose THE WORST time to take photos in this parking garage. I was hoping for privacy, but the elevator kept bringing more people back to their cars. And there was no escaping notice in this outfit. Well, it’s a public place and my ensemble is the sartorial equivalent of an exclamation point. I’ll just have to endure.

Jacket, thrifted. Dress, Under Skies (consignment). Tights, Target. Booties, Joe’s. Bag, Merona.

Oh, dear. The blouson look is not for me. I’ve seen other ladies carry it off well, so I thought I’d give it a go. I didn’t like how it looked in the morning, but I thought my eye would adjust. I avoided mirrors, and silently judging myself, all day. However, the pictures verify my initial impression. Instead of looking bohemian and carefree, it appears that my boobs are draped over my waistband. (On secondthought . . . maybe that is bohemian and carefree.)

Dress, Ella Moss. Shoes, J Crew. Hat, Charming Charlie. Earrings, Target. Necklace, Night Owl Crafts. Bag, Croft & Barrow.
