A Dress That Moves

posted on: June 15, 2018

I've had this dress thrown across the edge of my bed for two weeks. There are evenings when I've convinced myself it's acceptable to wear it just once more in the span of a month.

On Losing Trousers (And Finding Them)

posted on: June 7, 2018

Back when I was 19 and 20, one of the ways I made myself feel taller, was with a pair of denim wide leg trousers. I wore them with boots or clogs, and a tank tucked in the waist. A few weeks ago, I found a pair of Zara trousers tucked in the back of my drawer! I must have had them there for about six months. Me in rare form...

Motherhood Right Now: A Fitting Quote

 Oak is turning four in two weeks! His third year of life has been quite eventful and wonderful, and while I save words for a bit closer to the date, here is a fitting quote...

“Grown don’t mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown. In my heart it don’t mean a thing.” — Toni Morrison
