Suspended

The key to any good outfit lies in the accessories.  The wrong ring, a misplaced muffler, an off-hue shoe, and an entire ensemble becomes fodder for the fashion squad.  I jest, but so much can be said in the details of a day’s dress.  And while us female folk have the prime pickings when it comes to ensemble embellishments, sometimes it’s better to borrow from the boys.  After all, you know what they say about greener pastures…

So here’s to the style of suspenders, a look for all my britches + pantyhoes.

Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 5

August has finally arrived, signally the slow + ever so sad decline of summer.  So as the first Tuesday of this new month rolls around, let’s celebrate rather than sulk, with a custom cocktail and the appropriate accoutrements.

Thirty-one dreamy days of this summer month lie ahead (or did, at the start).  Originally, the month was intended to have only thirty days.  It all traces back to the creation of the calendar by the ancient Romans, which is where today’s drink finds its inspiration.  Julius Caesar’s grandnephew, Augustus, who defeated Marc Antony + Cleopatra to reign as Roman Emperor, is where the month finds its name.  The reason for adding a thirty-first day (and no, not for one last beachside bender)?  So that the ruler’s greatness was not consider lesser than Caesar’s, for which July finds its name.

And with that, the most new knowledge manageable for our mind, we drink (so that we can aptly forget it all).

Brawn, Brains, + Beauty

Bare bones + bad health are well beyond passe.  Show me a strong woman any day of the week + I’ll show you the definition of true beauty.  So what better way to salute ours sisters of strength than through our threads.  All hail the glorious muscle tee.
