The Colour and The Cape

The Colour and The Cape

Do you remember back in the day (by that I mean, a decade or so ago) when you couldn't get a dress sized for a tall framed female to save your life? Yes, there were "tall" pants available, but those typically had a 34"-35" inseam. Pairs eventually were available in longer lengths, and eventually dresses [...]

Four Degrees From Kevin Bacon

Four Degrees From Kevin Bacon

I studied historic preservation and architectural history in graduate school. One of the classes that made a huge impact on me was a 500 level Urban Design seminar. And this is when I hit y'all with some next level seven four degrees of separation. The gentleman who taught the Urban Design seminar, Karl DuPuy, was a [...]

While I do not condone ivy growing on the exterior of any building, ivy growing on fencing is acceptable, as it is considerably less expensive to replace a [...]

Winter White Waiting for Snow

Winter White Waiting for Snow

In the winter of 2009, I was impressed by a sartorial combination of a winter white dress and black opaque tights. I was immediately jealous of the genius wearing it - I wish I had thought of that combination first. Since then, I purchased many a winter white dress, and I love wearing all of [...]
