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”
Ulysses, Tender Is The Night, John Adams, and Innocents Abroad were my planned books for the month. I marked John Adams off my list and then the coronavirus became a huge event, as it still is, and I got distracted as I started Tender Is The Night. Something about dear “Rosemary Hoyt’s” callow days onContinue reading “Ulysses”
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”
I’ve come to realize that there are three types of people in the world. There are the people who ingest fish tank anti-parasite cholorquine because they don’t know any better, the people who use that kind of tragic ignorance and stupidity for personal gain or self-aggrandizement, and the people who stand by and watch inContinue reading “For Fish”
Times like right now bring mixed feelings. On the one hand I worry about the many people who are struggling to survive either from lack of food or from the virus. But it also reminds me of the distant past and the ways people coped with things like this. People like the Roosevelts. Or maybeContinue reading “The Woods”
I wandered through Instagram’s streams today and found posts that were…surprising. You’d think I’d have seen them before based on things I’ve said on my blog recently, but in a very creepy coincidence I hadn’t. Any of them. My gosh. What do you say to people who hate themselves? Who see their perceived “flaws” inContinue reading “Loss”
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”
