Adorned with Story

June 2, 2014


While I have a penchant for jewelry, there is very little I wear consistently in my every day dealings. I haven’t added to that in quite some time, but I am going to shortly. I promised myself I wouldn’t add to my collection on a whim. Each piece I buy from here forward must not […]

Comments Off on Fall 2013 Inspiration

Day One of My Week Around Town and I went in search of Fall inspiration. I cannot stress this enough: It makes a huge difference to try on and pet things that catch your eye. I can attest that fisherman sweater is super soft and perfect for a warmer fall climate, the ring causes serious […]

Tinley Road Victoria Vegan Leather Peplum There is something about leather – and how it ushers in the Fall. Sure, some may try to peddle their “spring leather,” but that is a mismatch of the highest order. No, Fall arrives on horseback wrapped in leather and smells like every pleasurable experience you’ve ever had in […]

Comments Off on Studded – The Opposite of Demure

It’s taken awhile, but the stud earring has started to come into its own. Quite frankly, it’s about time. There are still plenty of the demure and dainty options around, but I prefer this new breed of stud full of edge and roughness – a glamour disguised in wicked clothing. There are entirely too many […]

Sunday Mornings & Magazines

August 22, 2013

Comments Off on Sunday Mornings & Magazines

Sundays.  Lazy stretches and crumpled sheets and a slower clock. It’s a delicate gold chain pooled in the dip of a collar. Pancakes if you’re lucky. Sundays are ponytails and jammy pants, hot chocolate and finger-tipping through magazines. It’s the slow peruse, dog-earing pages, broadening your mind and finding some surprise inspiration. Magazines become part ritual, […]

Summer Stripes

July 16, 2013

If there is ever a vote taken on a “summer uniform,” I’m fairly certain it will include stripes. That’d be one helluva chic lobby, wouldn’t it? It is the simplest pattern to wear, and the most versatile. The stripe can feel nautical, or demure. It can be powerful, classic, or whimsical. It is immune to […]

Get the Look: First Knuckle Rings

July 15, 2013


The other day, after a summer white manicure appointment, I posted the picture above and several folks asked about my delicate, gold rings.  They are “first knuckle rings” and are quite the little trend. Interestingly enough, these are not a modern creation. This style ring actually originated in the Renaissance as an indication of wealth. […]

Comments Off on Panama Hat Inspiration

For the first time in my life, I have purchased a hat. This may seem odd, but Houston was never a “hat” town. However, after picture after picture of casually elegant warm weather ensembles avec chapeau, I could no longer resist. To the J. Crew hat section we go! I can see how I might […]

Style Challenge: A Multi-Event Dress

Comments Off on Style Challenge: A Multi-Event Dress

The other day my BFF from college, who lives all the way up in Chicago and far, far too far away from Houston, told me she was looking for a dress for another mutual friend’s small, very intimate evening wedding. Oh, and it also needs to work for a Bar Mitzvah luncheon. Then we lamented […]

Hermes Festival des Metiers: The Legend of a Scarf

October 17, 2012


Blogging can be a lonely endeavor. More often than not it’s me and my computer in a quiet house all alone. In a lazy moment, it is sometimes easier to stay home than it is to make the effort to leave the house. But when your city is hosting one of the last American Hermes […]
