If the Dress Don’t Fit, Buy It Anyway?

So I bought this dress, this past weekend, It doesn’t quite fit. Well, actually it fits EXACTLY, no wiggle room, no booty shaking room, and well…breathing while wearing was quite the feat. Don’t you hate that? …but it’s so cute so… I could probably have it tailored, but I probably won’t. It is like everything else in my life, it will sit there waiting to be fixed until I abandon it or toss it in the giveaway pile. So anyway, this dress is definitely on trend, with the one shoulder and the ruffle and the stripes. I think I have hit…

Life is Too Short, Buy the Leather Leggings, Already

So you’re thinking that you might want to add leather leggings to your wardrobe, but you’re hesitating to take the plunge. Maybe you think you are too curvy, maybe you think your badoncky is a little too big. Or… …maybe you are very thin and you think the look may be a little too trash baggy. Or… …maybe you are a little older and the thought of shiny pants just seems ridiculous. If you’re thinking any of these things, banish the negative thoughts and go out and get you some-sexiness-in-a pair-of-pants, girl. I know that once upon a time, leather pants were…

Monday Confessions: How About a Vlog To Pass the Time? |Video

First off, I have to say that I hope everyone is having a very reflective and productive Martin Luther King Jr Day! Share love today, share hope today, share peace. So I have to say one thing… Perfection is the enemy of productivity. I am a perfectionist and I have to stop it. I spent the better part of the weekend editing a vlog that was supposed to be up on Friday. Can you see the problem already? I missed my deadline. Ugh!!!! I missed my own self-imposed deadline because I hold myself to this unrealistic and stupid standard that often…

My Mini Designer Bag Collection and Luxury Wishlist

Throughout the years I have accumulated the odd luxury item here and there. I remember being an Army wife with two young children years ago. I chose to stay at home with my children when they were very young, one because young Soldiers are not rolling in dough, and depending on where we were stationed, the spouse often had very little real job prospects at the time, aside from retail. We made the conscious decision to put our family first, make sacrifices, and do without much beyond the basics, especially because we were a single income family for a long…

Monday Confessions: Garance and Me

Heading to see Hidden figures, an early morning show because the hubby and I are really young senior citizens, I decided to read a few pages in a new book I picked up before Christmas. I picked up the Garance Dore book to read on the way, because I am on a perpetual search for: Glamour Organization Simplicity                                                                                    …

‘Tis the Season…Blah Blah Blah

When I started this blog, I said that I would be honest. So here goes. Christmas Time is here… (pretend like you hear the song playing over this sentence). Christmas time is here, and while everyone is fa-la-laing around, I’m just feeling all grinch-y. By the way, I’ve been known to make up words. I don’t know, maybe it’s anxiety about where I’m going with this blogging thing, maybe it’s hormones, maybe it’s climate change or more like Climate personality disorder. It’s 50 one day, 20 the next, ice in the morning, sun bathing by noon. It all just makes…
