The Little Black Dress

In Search of the Perfect Little Black Dress The dress above looks dark brown but it’s actually black in my pencil sketch. The woman in this drawing looks frustrated and forlorn in her search for the “perfect black dress.” But I love what she is wearing as we see a subtle glimpse of her silhouette in a bodycon-style dress. A bodycon dress gently traces…

The Seagull

The Seagull (by Sarah Connor) Floating, searching, yearning cries, Flapping in the waves at sea. The seagull whispers tales and lies, Its icy arms grab hold of me, To draw me under and seal lips tight, My breath submerged below the light. When all is gone, the bird takes flight, Its world untouched, unharmed and free. Its secrets die beneath the sea. A normal…

Do Women Still Wear Hosiery?

As you may have noticed from my posts, I am frequently wearing hosiery either in the form of pantyhose or tights. Personally, even if hosiery were no longer in style, I strive to be my own woman and to not be a slave of what’s currently trending. I wear what I think is attractive, comfortable and stylish regardless of what’s in vogue. However, with…

“Hip to Be Square”

“Hip to Be Square” is a song by Huey Lewis and the News that was made popular in 1986 and was number three on the Billboard Hot 100. I loved that song and you can listen to it here:  Huey Lewis and the News Hip to Be Square. According to Wikipedia, “Square is slang for a person who is conventional and old-fashioned.” But “hip” means “up to…

Welcome to my Library

Hi Everyone, I hope you enjoy my video. I am looking forward to exploring the librarian chic concept more with upcoming blog posts. Thank you for watching my video and I hope you had a great weekend!

Librarian Chic

Shhh–I am reading The Tommyknockers by Stephen King. I am just getting to the good part when the alien spaceship is discovered and people are starting to act strange… This is a perfect time of year to read something scary.  But this post is actually about how I have come to the conclusion that my wardrobe is librarian friendly. Not that there is anything…

The Perfect Red Pump

“Now, Love is red, and Wisdom pale, But human hearts are faint and frail; Till Love meets Love, and bids it hail. I see the chasm, yawning dread; I see the flaming arch o’erhead: I stake my life upon the red.” (Julia Ward Howe) I have been in search of the “perfect” red pump for quite a while now. My personal definition of the perfect…

The Indispensable Utility Jacket

This is the perfect time of year to wear the utility jacket–it has a lightweight warmth and is a great closet staple that goes well with denim. And not only denim, but just about everything from shorts, skinny pants, dresses and even a…shag skirt. I had to do a double take on the above skirt as I had never thought of pairing this creative…

Bountiful Harvest

“A drop fell on the apple tree Another on the roof; A half a dozen kissed the eaves, And made the gables laugh.” (Emily Dickinson) This year our apple trees yielded a great abundance of apples on our Yellow Transparent trees and our Macintosh. Our UPS driver, while delivering a package, recently asked if he could pick some as he uses them to make…
