My Pose-rs know that red is not my favorite color. It just doesn’t look good on me, a fact I blame on my skin tone and aversion to things like hot sauce, artificial cherry flavored candies, and Fruit Punch. I much prefer to dress in a neutral palate [aka black & blue] and let my accessories be the bold part of my look. But every once in a while, it shows up; on my nails or on a celeb’s amazing dress, and really makes me question my disdain.

“This has happened to me at times in terms of preaching. You have written some wonderful pieces, but, as you are learning, every writer struggles with this. Although I’m not the baseball fan that Sarah is, the advice for hitters in a batting slump is to keep swinging—so writers keep writing.”
Of course I’ve heard similar words before, but on that day, from him, they felt especially powerful. Thanks, Dad!
Also: I love this outfit. I have a major weakness for menswear on woman, and this jacket is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine [the structured shoulders are nicely balanced by the shiny fabric on the cuffs]. Am going to try my best to recreate this look. Thank you, Vogue, for the continued inspiration!
I am behind on nail pics, so here is one from a few days ago [left] and my current motif. I like these photos because they show a bit of what else I’m wearing- ring(s)- and help me remember what happened that particular day. While writing in my journal, I often wish for the ability to “upload” a picture- either of my current surroundings, outfit, or just something of interest- and then I realize “DUH” that’s why you have a blog [we all have our moments].
