OOTD: Easy Rider

Ever since I was a teenager and watched the movie Easy Rider, I must admit I have had a penchant for motorcycles, hippie and biker chic fashion, and the open desert. What makes motorcycles so appealing to me? the thrill of riding fast, the freedom and lawlessness it entails, and the ability to wear boots […]

OOTD: In My Daughter’s Closet >=)

Woke up in the morning, stood barefoot before my closet for a long time, shaking my head in a terrifying realization … gasp … I had nothing to wear! So, very discreetly, I tipi toe down the hall, to my teenage daughter’s bedroom, and I promise I never do this, innocently peek at her closet, […]

You go for a walk in the park ’cause you don’t need anything Your hand that you sometimes hold doesn’t do anything The face that you see in the door isn’t standing there anymore   In a matter of time, it would slip from my mind In and out of my life, you would slip […]

OOTD: I’m With Cupid

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” a quote by Charles M. Schulz   We all know that red is the official color of L♥ve, but this Valentine’s Day, I decided to stand out by wearing fuschia instead. It all started with this fabulous Betsey Johnson patent leather tote […]

Stop Staring! 40’s Inspired Fashion

Today’s post is inspired by women’s retro dresses and my love of the 1940’s era when Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, Ava Gardner and Susan Hayward ruled the Silver Screen, while most women imitated them, wearing simple, formfitting outfits with matching hats/snoods and gloves. And those hairstyles … to die for! One of my favorite online […]

Noodles was just as much my child as my human children are. Our other dog, Lucky, has lost his companion and best friend. […]
