Layers and Pants

Layered fall look from Lane Bryant

I'm wearing PANTS in this outfit post! It's a miracle! I seriously do not wear many pants - give me skirts and dresses all day, every day. This outfit showed up on my doorstep and I loved the jacket and top, but when I saw pants, I thought "oy vey." Thanks Lane Bryant for making me eat my words. The pants worked and I love this look. It is professional, yet contemporary and not stuffy, and the pieces are all individually Continue Reading

Transparent Tuesday: Outfits Are Easy

Outfits are easy, but getting dressed is hard.

When Life Gives You Lemons

When life gives you lemons, you gotta deal with some sour shit.

Sometimes, the words and posts don't come. This is basically all I've got right now. Dealing with a lot of lemons. A lot. Trying not to drown in them. I know people would normally say: "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade!" Well, sometimes you just can't find the damn sugar. Base image from pixeljockeyth on Flickr I'm not the best at processing negative things in my life. In the past, I've employed what I call the "avoid it and stuff Continue Reading
