A Day in Motor City

dsc_7704Thrifting in Detroit

I had a conference in Detroit last week so while I sat indoors, Merl (who was visiting) scouted thrift shops around Detroit and scooped me back up later to join her in the suburbs where we hit up a few favorites we found last spring. I acquired two pleated midi skirts that were on my thrift shopping list, a fur coat with knit sleeves (not on my list, but totally necessary) and a leather belt that I’ve already been wearing nonstop.  Read More »

My Friend Erin

I met Erin when I was 22 and fresh out of college at my first big girl job. She worked with me and we bonded over owning the same pair of jeans. Back in those days, I owned probably three pairs of shoes total, one of which were a pair of flats that smelled like garbage and I kept gluing the soles back on, despite my coworkers’ pleads to throw the stinky shoes away. Thanks to Erin, I grew out of my redneck roots (just a little) to gain appreciation for quality pieces of clothing. And now I have too many shoes.
We met up earlier in the week and I snapped a couple photos of her because I love her effortless styles on her days off. 

Urban Jungle

My eyes are finally catching up to my old, old grumpy soul. I’ve had to wear my glasses more often and switch back and forth during sunny days with my aviators. So, I’ve accurately documented this look with both my aviators and new prescription eyeglasses. However not documented, was the switch to Birkenstocks shortly after these photos since I could no longer hobble through the work day in them. I had some meetings downtown Detroit and found time to meet with my friend Erin and catch up at Ottava Via over pizza and pasta, and I also snapped some photos of her that I’ll be sharing soon!
