I think I know my body well enough to know that small on top and larger on bottom works best- thus I have avoided most the 80's trends the past few years. I woke up and decided it's time to embrace it- er, at least for one day. I figured my pictures would tell the tale of if I can pull this off or not. Thoughts?

I haven't seen snow in almost 2 years now, and I have to say I'm missing it a little. I don't want it forever, just for a day or two. I was thinking of the pretty blue/gray/white hues, and I felt inspired to wear this color scheme to channel my own winter wonderland.

Whenever we're together for the holidays my sister (http://overturesandorganza.blogspot.com/) and I like to play with my Dad's super nice Cannon. Oh one day I will buy something other than my point-and-shoot. I can't believe what a difference a camera makes!
I was feeling a little sassy during this shoot- the dark smoky eyes bring out the dark side in me!

Here's the winter routine: Start with a coat and cardi because it's in the 40's when I go to work. Go to short sleeved shirt under for drive home as it's in the 70's, then return to original after 6:00 p.m. I am no complaining, I live in paradise for 6 months and I enjoy every minute of it!

I just don't know if anyone understands unless they've survived the AZ summer, but the day you can actually wear tights and get away with it without inducing heat stroke feels like a miracle!

I went to church on Sunday, so Halloween was celebrated on Saturday. I was Marianne, the sig-other was Gilligan- I'll post pics when my Dad sends them to me. BUT, I still wanted to be a little festive, so here it is, peach and orange meets gray. It's almost like no one could tell how conniving clever I was!

I read somewhere, I think in Lucky's Guide to Style, that you should buy a formal you love when you see one, even if you think you'll never use it. I bought one 2 years ago and found myself seeing Wicked with a dressed up crew the next weekend. I found this dress at Downeast Basics for $10 and figured why not, another formal event may occur. It took 2 months, but a formal family dinner party was held, and I was glad I was prepared! Thank you Lucky!
