Be bold!

We are in love with this look that Gechi put together! She paired up a vintage scarf and dress with a bright bubblegum pink J.Crew jacket. This outfit is definitely one that will get you noticed from a mile away while also adding a little fun to an otherwise dreary winter day.


A fabulous idea!

My girlfriend is so passionate about clothing. She just loves it all. She owns purses galore in all sorts of textures, size and colors. She carefully chooses exactly which accessories to compliment each and every outfit. It does not matter if she is just running to the store for ice cream... she does not go out the door unless she is put together. Now this does not mean dressed up but you can be sure that her shoes, purses, tops, slacks, jewelry, and makeup all work together to the best advantage. The one problem she continuously ran into was where to store it all. One day she decided to take over the den by moving the desk into the middle of the room and buying various pieces of furniture to put around the room to store her purses, clothing and accessories. She hit various thrift shops and resale stores to find just the right pieces. She managed to find just the right furniture to complete the look she was after including a wonderful long mirror in a frame…the better to see one’s self, my dear. So, no she did not move everything out of the bedroom into the den, she still has a bunch of stuff in the bedroom closet but there is enough room in the bedroom now for her handsome husband to store some of his clothing as well.

And, they lived happily ever after.


Hello, cooler days!

Now that the weather is starting to get a bit cooler, it's time to start looking for a winter coat! Bundle up in this orange, cocoa, and royal blue Henry Friedricks at Julius Garfinckel & Co coat and grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte at your local coffee shop! Size is small.

A wise man once said, "When in doubt, wear red." This vintage red winter cape is definitely a piece that will get you noticed in a crowd. Made of wool and embellished with "horn" buttons, this cape was made in Germany. Best of all, whether you want to wear it over a layered look or an evening dress, the cape fits all sizes!


Wonderful Waterford

I have been to the fair more than a dozen times in my life. My fathers best friend and family lived there many years ago so we used to visit quite often when I was a child. Fair time is always something special. It is especially fun when there is a little chill in the air. I took a few photos of the dedicated craftspeople working away as well as the people who dress up on Civil War gear. From hand carved beds, brooms, pottery, baskets, and blacksmith it is refreshing to see something truly American made.
