I’m now a devoted Brooks Brothers fan. I love how they’re helping in the current pandemic. I love their history. I love their style. I love my new trench. It’s perfect. Sadly, my handbag is taking a while to arrive. It seems to be stuck in transit between the UK and the US. Possibly it’llContinue reading “Brooks Brothers”
Have I had the virus? Possibly. I’ve had some odd symptoms that may have been Covid-19. I don’t know. It’s terrifying. Isn’t it? Regardless, we’ve been careful in regard to social distancing and I can only hope for the best. As much as they keep reporting on young people dying it’s still primarily a diseaseContinue reading “The Chaos and Some Meaningful Frivolity”
My late 90’s Chanel tweed jacket and two pairs of heels arrived. All is lovely. Each item is in great condition and I’m pleased. I’ll look forward to wearing them someday… Until then they’re pretty to look at. Be well and take care.
The other day at an antique store I found a set of 12 pieces of vintage Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Plain. So, the above set of teacup, saucer and dessert plate times four. I’ve been meaning to truly start my Royal Copenhagen collection, beyond the first vintage 60’s espresso cup and saucer I added yearsContinue reading “Blue Fluted Plain”
My hat came in the mail today! It’s perfect. Casual but classic. I love its slightly washed-out dark blue color. That’s all. I just wanted to share my hat. *smile* It’s the first of my usables to arrive.
As of tonight I’m now the owner of my “forever bag”, the hat, the vintage Chanel tweed jacket and the shoes. The hat is from Saks. The shoes are my first Manolo Blahniks and Jimmy Choos from The Real Real and my handbag is by a British handbag designer. I purchased the handbag directly fromContinue reading “Yay”
Years ago I had the idea to wear all black or all white and style it with silk scarves. That did not work out. Recently I’ve had the idea to wear a few signature pieces frequently and find ways to work a wardrobe around those pieces. For example: A strand of pearls or a goldContinue reading “More About Personal Style”
Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment was…disappointing. I put it on my face twice. I might as well have taken that time and read or slept. It was a zero. Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm is very effective. I admit I have used Vaseline directly on my lips in the harshest winter months becauseContinue reading “Reviews! Finally.”
I bought two bottles of vintage Acqua Di Parma Colonia a while back from a seller in Europe and I’ve had a chance to sample them now and have an opinion. First, they’re both testaments to the notion that vintage fragrances are not all just decrepit ghosts of their former selves but in fact someContinue reading “Vintage Acqua Di Parma Colonia”
The Daphne Flower fragrance collection from Antica Farmacista was of course inspired by the Daphne flower. I was looking for a pretty smelling bath product to use while reading from my monthly reading list. The first time I read The Sun Also Rises back in 2009 for whatever reason I was obsessed with bubble bathsContinue reading “Daphne Flower And Edelweiss”
