Great Day Houston Rodeo Fashionista!

In case you (somehow) missed it: I was one of five lovely models on Friday morning’s “Great Day Houston” showing off some fun Rodeo-inspired “western wear” options from amazing Houston-based stores Emerson Rose, Jubilee, and Erica DelGardo Jewelry Designs! I woke up insanely early and met up with my fellow models at Jubilee to get ready! (They…

I Saw Bigfoot!

At least, I saw A Bigfoot. It was on display last night, courtesy of dedicated showman/Bigfoot murderer Rick Dyer, at the Alamo Drafthouse, at a sold out event that included a delightfully insane episode of the Six Million Dollar Man, and viewings of the beast! Obviously, this was a media-worthy event, and somehow I was featured…

New Dress! Retro Butterick 5880!

Woohoo! I’ve got a new dress, and it’s gorgeous! In a continuation of my life being photographed in vintage and vintage-style dresses, here are the results of about 8 hours of sewing fun! As I’ve said, I love working with fun cotton fabric, because it tends to be less expensive and so easy to work…

Valentine’s Day Soirée!

Someone like myself, who prefers Halloween to all holidays, watching documentaries about diseases, sharks and/or massacres, as well as the generally macabre aspects of life, may not truly appreciate the saccharine, heart-shaped miasma that is Valentine’s Day. I do, however, love a good theme. One I can really run with, like the goddess Diana, through…

Apologies!

Sorry for the delay! I’m going through a minor life transition at the moment, but have seen Elvis Lives, and been on a super fun girly weekend in the Texas Hill Country, so anticipate some awesome posts later this week! Delighful wackiness shall return ASAP! xoxo!

Happy Birthday, Betty White!

One of my favorite acresses, and a truly wonderful lady, she’s turning 92 today! A red letter day, too, because it’s Michelle Obama’s 50th! Another fab lady who’s aging gracefully, and has made quite an impact during her tenure as First Lady! As amazing as our current FLOTUS is, however, she is no Betty White!…

Random Fun Wednesday – Hats and Art!

Woo for mid-week! Since it’s still cold in places, and I obvs have a particular affinity, the first fab topic is hats! There are SO MANY options if you’re looking for a cute way to keep all that heat in your head this winter! Next up, some amazing artists who also happen to be ladies!…

Golden Globes Frocks that Rocked!

Those of you who did not catch the 71st Annual HFP Golden Globes last night are likely being inundated with the results, flubs, and fashion today. While I do have intense opinions about some actors, hair and makeup, and the majesty that is Tina Fey and Amy Poehler together on stage being amazing, I’ll keep…
