For The Sheer Joy Of It!

Dressing the part is always how I approach what I wear each day. We each create a role every time we put something on, though many don’t get as creative as others. Me, I am not fully dressed til I put on a jacket of some kind to complete my look, my ensemble. Summertime changes…

Keeping Time With Your Sleeves

Sleeves you say. I look at clothing design creations and more times than not, a sleeve’s artistry is one of the places that gets my attention.   In essence, sleeves keep time to your gait, your dance. As I always do, I watch how people ‘dance’ throughout their day.  I continually capture into memory(and notes)…

Minding My ‘P’s & ‘Q’s
