I have a long list of ideas (i.e., outfits) for posts written down, but no time to take pictures! So today’s post is coming from an unused cache of photos taken during the fall, which I was planning on publishing some time in the spring. If you look at these photos and experience seasonal … Read moreWardrobe Check
I learned from family and friends that my postcards from Argentina started arriving this week. I think everyone thought I’d exaggerated my diligence in writing and posting them, but I sent so many. The Photographer and I wonder where our postcards have been and what they’ve seen in the nine weeks since they … Read moreThe Navy Suit Returns
Among the sale items that I found at Need Supply Co. at the end of the year was a charming lace blouse. It’s not the sort of thing that I usually wear, but it spoke to me and was signficantly reduced, making an experiment in Victoriana a low-risk undertaking.

There are three horizontal bands of shirring, a similar line … Read moreGet Your White and Black Blouses Now
You’re probably wondering how I could possibly have anything left to say after last week’s output. I am a renewable source of business casual creativity. Thank you to all who left condolence comments or sent emails about Posy the Cat. She will live forever in these blog pages! And thank you, as … Read moreRelaxed Biz Caz for Flight
Sharp-eyed readers and Directrice scholars may have noticed that Posy was not included among the staff of Directrice Global Industries in our end-of-year roundup post.
