Weather's been coolin', baby, I've been droolin', Over all the gloves I've been obsessin', Way, way down my arm, I'm gonna wear my glove, I'm gonna wear every inch of my glove, Gonna wear my glove. Gotta buy more gloves. Wanna Whole Lotta Glove!
That's a whole lotta gloves! But not quite enough....
Before Fall really began to show its colors, my friend Ruta asked me to go to the park with her and take some photos. I hadn't done that in a while so I agreed. Yes, I realize Fall is way past us as we just had a pretty decent Winter storm blow through town. I was looking through photos I never posted and decided these were worthy. And it makes me feel warm to see myself outside without a coat!
First up, a pose together on the decking overlooking the lake. Ruta is very tall and therefore makes me look very small. It's kinda funny to see us side by side like this. I don't really feel that much smaller when we are together.
Tina is a new friend of mine and we get along like gangbusters. She asked me if I would help her renew her wardrobe and teach her how to shop. YES! I would love to! Helping others cultivate their fashion sense is one of my favorite things to do. She works in a warehouse and her wardrobe is 90% jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers. This just won't do!
So one bright, sunny day this summer we set out for the mall.
Last Sunday I was again out at my local mall shopping with my friend Ruta. We went into LOFT as I had received an email they were having a 60% off sale. I was specifically interested in the $25 dress sale. Ruta was interested in buying another tank from there. I had not been to LOFT in quite some time.
I had no idea they had such sweet tanks for only $6!
Virginia has its own wine country and occasionally Chris and I venture out to one of the many vineyards. A couple weeks ago we went to Richmond Uncorked and of all the wines we tasted we enjoyed Cooper Vineyards wines the most. They had the best tasting wine of the day and they also told us they have tastings every weekend at their vineyard in Louisa County.
Saturday we decided to go check them out. The weather was beautiful and sunny, not too hot and not too humid. Perfect day for a picnic and wine:
I wore the TopShop sundress I bought in Las Vegas last May and my white Baby Phat wedges.
This post is more pictures than words. Several weeks ago, I went down to the canal walk for a photo shoot. If you're in Richmond, the canal walk is definitely an interesting place to visit. Just ignore the bums>
and girls with cameras... More photos after the jump.
No, not the city of Phoenix but the mythical bird. This blog and its author have been foundering in the ashes with no voice. I may have found my voice again. I'm trying.
I went shopping yesterday all by myself and had a really good time. I had not been to the mall or any other store for fashion items for quite some time. I managed to find some things I had to have and subsequently, inspiration for a fashion post. This is after all supposed to be a fashion blog!
