Don’t you hate it when you go to a website, and several popups and a ton of ads show up all over the page and even within the text of the article you want to read? I do! That’s why I invested more than $30,000 to build this safe shopping and blog website last year. I’m sharing this fact with you because I want you to know the level of my commitment to providing a safe space for women to learn, share, and support each other.
I wanted to create a safe commercial-free space for us to share ideas and inspiration. If you learn helpful tips, discover a new place to visit, begin a healthier lifestyle, or if you are inspired to put together outfits that work well for you, I have succeeded.
This week, I marked the one year anniversary of the opening of my online shop here. I am very grateful that you shop with me. You have countless other options, and I am genuinely honored to occasionally be one of your sources for scarves, clothing, handbags, and other accessories.
I usually share with you where I bought my clothing and accessories if they are current. Sometimes those items are from my shop, and sometimes they are items I bought, wore once for a couple of hours and then decide I do not want to keep. My wardrobe is like a river. Things flow in, and things flow out. You get the benefit of buying something from the Shop My Closet section here that may be like new for a fraction of the retail cost. Many of my friends in the fashion industry send me pieces from their collections in hopes that I will wear them on the blog for you, but those items are not always my taste or a good fit for me. Score for you! I will wear the clothing to share a lesson, and then list it in my shop for you to buy at a much lower price than retail.
These photos were snapped in my home before going out to dinner. I apologize for the poor lighting. Inside shots in winter are always a challenge for us. I wore an asymmetric hem top from the Travelers Collection from Chico’s last year over straight leg pants from my shop here. The shoes/boots are several years old by Franco Sarto. The necklace is from Caravans in the Grove Arcade in Asheville. The designer is Petra Meiren, a Germany-based jewelry designer. The fur vest was a long ago Christmas gift from Mr. Mickey.
