I started an open letter to myself Dec 31st 2013, reflecting and biding the year goodbye, to get things started on a more positive note in 2014.  I did the same thing the year before and finished it in less than an hour; gif and all.  Unfortunately when it came time to let the words flow, hours before ringing in 2014, I just couldn’t do it.  I never finished that letter, and I haven’t touched it since.  I didn’t really know why I couldn’t just type away the year I had, and get excited like most people around me did. I’m guess it wasn’t my time to celebrate another year because I wouldn’t have meant it.

Maxi, midi, knee-length and mini; various skirt styles that can use doses of pleats, taking the schoolgirl look to fashionable modern heights.  I do suggest lightweight fabrics like chiffon, silks, cotton or muslin, and getting a skirt with a defined waistband or belt friendly.

Forget Ring, Put A Pearl On It.

Listening to “Single Ladies” while looking at the pearl-rich collections of Alexander McQueen and Chanel has resulted in my post today.  Pearls are timeless, they shows class, and paired with the right look, you’ll be the fashion forward one in the crowd instead of the old-fashioned one who’s granny’s favorite.

Embellishing your clothes and accessories with pearls make more sense over rings,  unless you plan on being a supreme noise maker or the desperate single female version of Geico’s Money Man commercial.
