Check Out th’ Crap Rack

Check Out th’ Crap Rack

Any of you that regularly haunt your local secondhand stores know what “Th’ Crap Rack” is, often a small rack of rather forlorn and slightly dusty clothing items marked 75% off, usually full of very weird clothes that didn’t sell and are headed for the rag basket. Heavily sequined Mother-of-the-Bride tops missing the matching bottoms.… Continue Reading

Posterize Me

Posterize Me

Seriously, y’all, sometimes I think I just take pictures of myself so that I can play with the photo apps.  This is pattern-mixing, right? Bricks & fern-like fronds? I’m a little embarrassed to share this outfit because nothing is secondhand. But this was one of the first dresses I ever wore on the blog, years… Continue Reading

Menswear for the Ladies

Menswear for the Ladies

Patti at Not Dead Yet Style has been styling menswear shirts in her work wardrobe for years, regularly achieving that effortlessly classic Katherine Hepburn signature look. See her “Visible Monday #73: Crisp White (Man’s) Shirt” post to see a man’s shirt worn by a very beautiful woman.  Alexander Julian Colours man’s shirt (S 14-14 1/2)… Continue Reading

Manhattan Goodwill

Manhattan Goodwill

Whenever I travel I have to visit the best Goodwill in the city. I know, some peeps who visit NYC go see the Statue of Liberty. Lands End dress ~ Goodwill (Manhattan) Belt ~ 75% off at local consignment store Miz Mooz Tillman pumps ~ Amazon (heh, google them and my feet show up in… Continue Reading

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I know some of the most wonderful moms in the world, including many of you. But there are two very special moms out there I have never met – but who gave me the most extraordinary Mother’s Day present ever: the gift of life for The Teen. When their babies were born, they donated their… Continue Reading

Thanks to Readers.com, I Live My Cool Glasses Fantasy

I want to give y’all a heads up; this is a product review (I promise there is an outfit at the end), but it’s about an accessory that I have already waxed lyrical about BEFORE I started style blogging. Lemme quote myself (how obnoxious, right?): So I have reading glasses EVERYWHERE: in my purse, in… Continue Reading

MIA

MIA

Or, Ask Me How Much I Paid for These Shoes Yes, I’ve been MIA, or not very visible on th’ blog, social media, or anything digital-related. That’s right, I haven’t even checked my email. And I think there’s some snail mail ’round here, like a package from Patti that I saved to open this week.… Continue Reading

Karina Dresses: My Style

Karina Dresses: My Style

My style. It continues to challenge me, but I like exploring it via my blog. There are days I can tell what it isn’t by the outfit pictures you don’t see, or those days I don’t feel quite right in my clothes – and therefore maybe not quite right in my skin. The Deets: Gala… Continue Reading

More Nuggets from the Goodwill Goldmine

More Nuggets from the Goodwill Goldmine

Or I Popped Some [More] Tags Many of you post pictures from your thrifting, and I really enjoy them. The thrill of shopping vicariously through you guys is almost as great as the thrill of scoring a come-up (see Macklemore) at our local Goodwills and Salvation Armani Army store. I’ve been thinking about spring, what… Continue Reading

Great Thoughts by Guest Spammers

Great Thoughts by Guest Spammers

As readership of your blog grows, so do comments from spammers. They are a pain in th’ butt, but I’m not going to turn on Blogger’s even more painful captcha to stop them. Blogger’s horrid captcha, with its run-on letters and furry numbers, has prevented me from leaving many a comment on others’ blogs. I’ma… Continue Reading
