I Quit

Those of you who have been following along here for a while may know that one of the many (metaphorical) hats I wear is “professional musician”. Since college, I’ve held an assortment of part-time jobs as a paid church choir member. The choirs have varied in size and skill level, but for almost 10 years…

Letters and Feathers

I’ve been putting off sharing photos from last summer and fall all winter — I’m not sure why, it’s not like any of you are reading a vintage fashion blog to discover hot new trends for Spring/Summer 2018 or so you can go out and buy whatever dress I’m reviewing on the blog. All my…

Where I′ve Been

It has been awfully quiet around here. I know. There are lots of reasons for this. The weather is too hot, the weather is too rainy, I’m tired, I don’t know what to write (probably a topic for a post itself, heh)… but most recently, the reason I haven’t been blogging, or in fact doing…

Confection in Pink

I swear I don’t know where the time has gone this year. I think “Oh, surely I just posted a few days ago, I’ll have another post up soon”, and then the month is only over and I’ve only posted once. Quite the mystery. Anyway, continuing to work through the photo backlog not entirely in…

A Pencil Skirt Success

The last time I was in Salem, I stopped into Modern Millie and tried on a few things. One of those was this fantastic suit. I was hesitant to try it because it had a straight skirt, and that usually spells the end of a relationship between me and a suit, but the price was…

On the Wild Side

I was so pleased that it was time to bust out my new suit that I couldn’t just wear it once, I immediately had to come up with another way to style it for a trip into Salem. I wanted to splash out and buy myself a “good job me for getting a job” present,…

A Burgundy Suit and Rocket Originals

I’m always combing Etsy for suits that might fit me, which is a more difficult task than it really seems like it should be. When I spotted this burgundy number well within my suit budget and in measurements that looked like they would work, I wasted no time snapping it up. I was absolutely thrilled…

My First 40s Coat

Things are quite December-y around here, bare and cold, but I still have some photos left from earlier in the fall, so you’ll have to bear with a few slightly less seasonal posts, including this one. Although everything looks quite green, I assure you that it was actually freezing, which made it a perfect day…

Thanks Giving

Well, Thanksgiving is over, the leftovers are packaged up, and at least here in the United States that means it’s officially time to get into full-on Christmas mode! We got our tree up yesterday and have listened to all of Chanticleer’s Christmas albums. So this seems as good a time as any to reflect a…

Novembery

Winter hasn’t quite kicked in yet, and we still haven’t had a real freeze yet this fall, but things are definitely starting to look a bit November-y. Sure, there’s still some lingering fall color, but we’re well on our way to drab and brown for a month or so until the snow decides to show…
