Snow suit or swim suit? I think you know my answer.

For the briefest of moments this morning I considered acting like a normal mom and going to the grocery store to stock up on bread and milk.  Then I remembered I’m not normal and bought a swimsuit instead.  This beautiful Zimmerman suit to be exact.  I subscribe to the mode of thought that when Life […]

Brim Witted

Some weeks I have the same conversation all week long but with each of my clients individually.  The good news is that I’m equipped for this since I have a 6 and a 4 year old and have the same conversation with each of them pretty much every hour. This past week it was about […]

Hung by the chimney with care…

And now it’s time for some unsolicited advice from Wardrobe Whisperer (incidentally this seems the only type of advice I’ve been giving these days): If a man is paying a visit to your home, at no point does he want to view ratty old stockings.  And when I reference men this, of course, includes Santa.  […]

Plantar Fascism/itis

If you are a believer in everything-happens-for-a-reason (this type of kool-aid is typically not my flavor) then perhaps your interpretation of my getting plantar fasciitis is somewhat sunnier than mine. Mine, of course, is that it’s a cruel, cruel world that decides a wardrobe stylist should no longer wear high heels. It makes me feel […]

Wardrobe Whisperer and Business Insider Talk Boots

It’s Thanksgiving week and the mere suggestion of turkey has flooded my body with L-tryptophan.  All I want to do is sleep.  (Hush up, WebMD with your pesky science.)  And that sleepiness is what brings me to my decision to point you to an article published last week by Business Insider.  That I did actual […]

The Great Pumpkin Carving

Whose brilliant idea was it to hand children twelve pounds of candy each, then add an extra hour to the next day for them to use begging for said candy?  Yesterday plus today has really been a one-two punch in that respect.  That is, until I developed a system:  for each indiscretion, my kids have […]
