Orange U Glad 2 C Me?

Orange U Glad 2 C Me?

Or, Yes, I Am the Orange Powerpuff Girl The Goodwill Fangirl almost never came back after The Teen’s bone marrow transplant. (We’re doing third person today. It’s just easier to keep a little distance right now.). The other side of transplant wasn’t what anyone expected. No amount of pre-admission education could prepare her for the… Continue Reading

Big Labels on th’ Cheap at Salvation Armani

Okay, it’s really Salvation Army, but I heard someone call it Salvation Armani once, and that’s the only way I think of it now.

I’m Poppen Tagz for Halloween

I’m Poppen Tagz for Halloween

Halloween is my absolute fave holiday. Historically, I’ve always taken any opportunity to party on Halloween as an excuse to have a few drinks, boogie down, and bring my sexy back.

Yawn, a Boring Black Turtleneck

The first couple of years I started style blogging for recessionistas, I abandoned my signature black clothing.

A Karina Dress Meets My Fluevogs

A Karina Dress Meets My Fluevogs

Some of you are going to be kinda shocked, but I forgot about my one and only pair of Fluevogs, which almost everyone refers to as my “robin’s egg blue pumps.” I put them away for the winter in their special Fluevog bag. I guess I put them away a li’l too well. The Deets:… Continue Reading

Why Don’t You Ever Brush Your Hair?

Why Don’t You Ever Brush Your Hair?

A former significant other asked me that rather a lot. You know, a lot for a question that sounds a bit hypercritical, or perhaps just helpful. I’m sure he meant to be helpful and improve my personal hygiene. What’s the answer to that question? I dunno. For sure, I don’t even carry a brush or… Continue Reading

It’s A Wrap

It’s A Wrap

As I typed the title of this post, I realized that not only did it describe this Maggy London wrap dress from the Manhattan Goodwill, but it also describes the ending of a very long chapter in my life.
