All Dressed Up and No Place to Go

“A Lady red—amid the Hill Her annual secret keeps! A Lady white, within the Field In placid Lily sleeps!” (Emily Dickinson) I did some extensive traveling last weekend from my back door to this nearby bench in my yard. When you think of red, do you associate it with love, romance, and passion? If you love wearing red, it might indicate that you are…

Full Worm Moon

Hello Friends, I am taking a little fashion intermission as I am waiting for a new dress to arrive. In the meantime, I wanted to share some moon pictures that I captured on March 9. They call this the “Full Worm Moon.”The March full moon is known as the worm moon because it coincides with the time of year when earthworms begin to emerge…

“Silent Haunches”

I love the “Fog” poem by Carl Sandburg who describes the fog so simply and powerfully through a metaphorical cat. Aubrey is sitting looking not over the harbor but at me and with hairy eyeballs I might add. She is mysterious, unpredictable, and even a little scary just like that fog slowly and quietly creeping in.  (Thank you, Dan, for sharing this poem with…

Our “Web of Life”

“We are all such fragile creatures in a web of life we will never understand.” (Dan Dagenais) My post is straying from its usual fashion theme in an effort to stop and contemplate on the meaning of life. The above quote (by my creative brother) about the “web of life” got me thinking about the meaning of that expression. Therefore, I set out to…

In Memory of Ishi

I am taking a brief intermission from fashion to dedicate this post to my beloved cat, Ishi; 9/1/08 to 1/24/20, RIP. He was our beloved cat for almost 12 years. He survived the ice storm of 2008/2009, the arrival of two new feline sisters, and had to deal with our now 85 pound puppy. And he just purred in return. He had a way…

The Faux Wrap Dress

I love the faux wrap dress! This kind of dress looks like a regular wrap dress, except that it already comes fastened together with no opening in the front. You just simply slip it over your head and you’re dressed and ready to go! Another reason I love this dress is that it’s timeless and appropriate for any age group. You can be conservative…

Fog Inspired Fashion

“I must go in, for the fog is rising” (Emily Dickinson’s last words) I was on “top of the world” yesterday in spite of the dreary, dismal and depressing weather. The location of this area is one of my favorite secret spots that I posted about earlier this year here and this location truly speaks to me. The fog was tangibly thick and seemingly…

How to Enjoy the Dead of Winter

Golden marrow, hollow snares, yellow eyes and sunken stares, Pretty once and kindly glares follow me through fallen hairs. Never stop and never bare, the road unearthed and cold its lair plod along its weary course ; forbear the load; do not despair (Sarah Connor) Winter has officially begun and the “dead of winter” will be upon us soon. However, we have many reasons…

Out of the Abyss

(Livin’ Large by Euge Groove. Please play song while reading post) Send me to the moon and higher, see your works as they transpire Take me to the heavens Father, let me take a trip with you. Have your sacred angel guide me, bring me to my hearts desire Divine your words are faithful and true. Bring me to my knees O Father let…
