Change is afoot
I'm still here, don't worry! It's been a busy few months, so I thought I'd sum it up in the anatomy of an outfit. 
Well if I'm honest, it's all about the bag. It's a present to myself (with special thanks to a friend who works at my-wardrobe.com) as a reward for, finally, scoring a new job. 
So about the new job.
I realised recently, half...

Winging It

 

Sorry for the white-on-white image here, but behold the triumphant future-weird that is the BurdaStyle Wings Dress.

I kind of love it. A lot. Maybe because the wings are FULL OF POCKET, but probably mostly because I’ve always wanted a carapace. (Tell the truth: you do too.)

This would be a fantastic dress in black, with iridescent green...

I have a few dinosaur necklaces left in the shop and this is the last call if you'd like to purchase one! The shop will be going on vacation tomorrow as I am going to be traveling in April so shipping things out will become impossible.

Photo Tip Tuesday: Light

Posted in dresses

When taking photographs natural light is best--even if you're shooting indoors it is better to be by a window than to rely on overhead lights. Even if natural light is best what about the difference between bright days or cloudy days, sun in the middle of the day or at sunset?

Leah’s March Favorites

It’s finally spring, and that means it’s time to come out of our dark, cold little bear caves and embrace the sunshine.

As much as I love this time of the year, I’ve been a plant victim. Specifically, I’ve been victimized by pollen. If it wasn’t for my friend Benadryl, I probably would have already sneezed myself to...

There are a number of stylish mothers out there, but I doubt that style described as "momish" is to be considered a compliment. Whatever, I still say it was a more elegant, perhaps...

Like most of the other students in the dojo, Betsy dreamed of the day where she, too, would achieve the red sash, and find oblivion in inhaling deeply the sweet breath of the lotos-orchids. In the meantime, as a lowly pink belt, she performed such menial tasks as making sure Gladys didn’t trip on her sash of honor and recruiting new...
