Week One Recap: FROCKTOBER 2018

WELCOME TO FROCKTOBER FOR OVARIAN CANCER This month is all about fashion–but it’s also to raise money and heighten awareness of Ovarian Cancer. As my beloved colleague and friend, Chris Noya, fights her battle, I will do my part to make this month meaningful. I’m looking forward to the challenge of posting 31 outfits in…

Wednesday Wardrobe – The Petite Professor: Rompers & Jumpsuits

*** Jumpers and Rompers are HOT this year. Why? Because… They are easy and breezy. They are one piece, and a one-piece item (same color top and bottom) does not break the visual line of clothing, therefore making you look taller and often more slender. They are comfortable. They can be dressed up or down….

The Petite Professor -Wednesday Wardrobe

I think we are all yearning for spring at this point. Although Maryland is technically below the Mason-Dixon line, I can tell you having lived here my entire life, that spring really doesn’t get going until late April, if we’re lucky. So in this neck of the woods, we are still wearing warmer clothes, though…

Wednesday Wardrobe: Keeping Cool Summer Style

Wednesday Wardrobe – A New Summer Feature For Regular Women

Wrapping Up October’s Month of Fashion

I made it through the month of #Frocktober, and I have to admit, I had a good time doing it! I posted my outfits daily on Instagram, begged folks to take my photo, and felt pressure to put an ensemble together worthy of documenting. I’m not a fashion blogger, but I am a blogger who…

What I Wore This Week | #FROCKTOBER Week 5

We are nearing the end, my friends. For a little more than 30 days (and day number 31 remaining), I have documented what I’ve worn during the month of #FROCKTOBER. We all have vices; my vice happens to be clothes, shoes, and accessories. Ever since I was little, I’ve pretty much loved playing dress up…even…

What I Wore This Week | #FROCKTOBER Week 4

*** Some people my find this whole FROCKTOBER thing a little silly; after all, it is a bit materialistic and about clothing and what we wear; it’s not about saving the world or doing some good for others. However, that said, I do believe how we feel about ourselves reflects on the rest of the…

For now, you’ll have to take into consideration some of the things I’ve suggested, use your fall/winter checklist when you shop, and work your own magic with the pieces…
