Name of the Game

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

The name of the game is versatility. Now more than ever I’m reaching for easy, comfortable pieces that I can wear many different ways dressed up or down. Sure I still find time for fascinators and tutus, but on a day-to-day basis I’m valuing versatility more and more. This shirt is exactly the kind of piece I’m looking for. For one thing it’s opaque. I’m so over the chiffon shirt trend, especially now that I work in an office where I can’t just get away with a cute bra underneath. The button down style and cool print can go from cocktail party to casual Friday in a heartbeat.

You guys know I love a quirky print, and this stained glass dress is one of my favorites. I call it my “art history” dress because so much of my art history study has centered around religious artworks. The last time I wore this dress was at Notre Dame. Yesterday I took it for a spin at the Museum of Fine Arts. It’s not quite the Louvre but it gets the job done.

I once saw a program for a group of blind seniors who came into the gallery and (wearing gloves) were allowed to feel all the sculptures to appreciate the art even without their sight. I thought that was pretty amazing. It also made me realize how fortunate I am to be able to experience artwork with all of my senses, many people aren’t so lucky.

CambridgSide Galleria Blogger Holiday

The other day I was lucky enough to attend a blogger holiday party at the CambridgeSide Galleria. They really know how to treat a girl over there! After champagne and hors d’oeuvres we had a blogger-wide yankee swamp with gifts provided by a variety of stores. I haven’t spent much time in a mall since the mall rat days circa seventh grade, but this event was well worth going out of my comfort zone.

cambridgesidebloggerholiday4How cute are these holiday outfit options? I love the idea of a jumpsuit for the holidays instead of a dress.

Breakfast in Bed

Now that I’ve had my own place for about seven months I’m starting to develop little routines and rituals in my weekly schedule. One of these is Saturday morning breakfast in bed. After a long week nothing feels more luxuriant than spending a few hours reading and relaxing in bed with a cup of coffee and an easy breakfast.

Here’s Lookin’ at You, Kid

There’s something about classic black-and-white hollywood movies that still seems so glamorous. The drama and romance of noir films from the ’40s and ’50s still get me every time. When I started brainstorming this shoot I knew I had two options. In these movies there are always two types of girls, the good (and usually helpless) woman, and the femme fatale. It wasn’t a difficult decision.

here'slookin'atyoukid13I styled the dress with classic pumps and a veiled fascinator, because I never turn down the opportunity for a good veil.

here'slookin'atyoukid10My friend Tau, the Sam Spade to my Brigid O’Shaughnessy, styled a classic trench with a shirt and tie for that ’40s detective look.
