So remember when I started this whole thing? Well, it’s done! And it only took me. I must say it’s been a learning experience in style. I’ve discovered things I like and things I don’t. I’ve become more creative in my styling, at least I’d like to think so, and a little more savvy, I hope.

I learned I like red, playing a part, stripes, looking ‘cool’, and that black is always a good standby (here, here, and here).

I love a dress with a good pattern, or a fun ruffle, or a cool applique. It’s the details, you know? I’ve also gotten braver with pairing things and mixing patterns. Sometimes I miss, but sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised with the results.

I love that a great dress can instantly change the way you feel. And it can immediately add some glamour into an otherwise blah day. Frankly, we can always use more glamour in our lives!

Looking over things, I’ve discovered I don’t have a “style.” I’m not one particular type of dresser – classic, tough, girlie, etc. etc. I just like what I like.
I like girlie, and nerdy, and tough…it all depends on my mood that day.
One thing I like is polka dots. Another is boots! And of course, comfort. I won’t suffer for fashion.

Yup. I've got lots and lots of dresses! I've also had some for almost ten years. I just take care of things.
