Nothing Ever Fits

December 3, 2010

Scott and I have another date night tomorrow (whoo hoo!).  In going through my closet in search of something casually sophisticated to wear, I was reminded that over half of the clothes I own have been altered to a certain degree.  Because, duh, nothing ever fits.  And then I remember that I can never...

Because You’re Already Tired of Christmas Shopping

November 22, 2010
Because You’re Already Tired of Christmas Shopping

I’ve come to the realization that The Sweetest cannot reach sweetest potential without merch.  Blog merch.  The Sweetest merch.  I present to you, The Sweetest t-shirt, as modeled by my most handsomest son, Hayden.  Don’t worry, you can order an adult size.  Young rockers and adults alike will love this design, inspired by Hayden…...

I Need To Be Comfortable

November 17, 2010
I Need To Be Comfortable

My old Target sweatpants are really comfortable.  But I also want to look good, and the Momover means I don’t have to embarrass my family when we go to the grocery store.  So I am making it a point to wear something other than pajamas- it’s the New Casual.  Here are come pieces I...

It’s Only 95 Out? Somebody Get Me a Sweater!

September 29, 2010
It’s Only 95 Out?  Somebody Get Me a Sweater!

After yesterday’s temperature reached 112 degrees, today’s 95 seems down-right pleasant.  I am so over summer.   I am ready for a fashion change, and these fall duds are calling my name!  Plus, I am a very olfactory person.  I can smell fall long before it arrives.  And last week, I smelled it.  So, bring...

Just Put Some Sew On It

September 13, 2010
Just Put Some Sew On It

One of my besties (and former college room mate) always said I was the domestic one.  The one who was always cleaning.  Or putting on a big pot of beans.  Or sewing on a button. Once, she had this crochet vest that had been torn as a result of who-knows-what kind of late night...

Oh, This Old Thing? I Got It In Paris.

September 8, 2010

Okay, we all know that style is something I seek (and sometimes lack), so from time to time I peruse fashion blogs.  If I see something I like, I try to think of ways to put my own spin on it or do a similar look for less money.  This time, though, I got...

If the Shoe Fits…

July 30, 2010
If the Shoe Fits…

Wear it, by God, WEAR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! After trying on $2200+ worth of gold shoes, I may have found a pair.  They’re no Stuart Weitzman (can you believe I have not received a response from him?), but I think they’ll do, and with a couple of foot petals, I should be back pain-free for my...

Dear Stuart Weitzman,

July 21, 2010
Dear Stuart Weitzman,

I want you to know how much I love your Oval.  It’s so simple, elegant, and versatile.  I have it in lead and have been wearing it for almost three years.  In fact, I love it so much, that I want another pair in gold.  It would be the perfect sandal for my Sister...

Selected Shorts

Selected Shorts

Despite my quest for the perfect pair of jeans, the weather is finally warming up, and I have been feeling a little constricted in my denim (or is it the little tire I grew around my waist OVERNIGHT).  The temperature here is only reaching the seventies now, but the heat will be here in...

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

April 27, 2010
Baby, It’s Cold Outside

The calendar says we are well into spring, but the goosebumps on my arms and drip-drip-drip in the back of my throat tell me I need to be dressed in layers.  Layers are great for spring and early summer, especially here in LA where there can be a 20 degree temperature difference from sun...

The “Momover” … Dressed For Spring

April 15, 2010
The “Momover” … Dressed For Spring

Once again, I have eaten my words.  Los Angeles received a good rain on Monday, after I declared (with certainty) that we wouldn’t see any more until October.  But, the skies are blue today, and the SoCal forecast is filled with sunshine.  Spring is finally here, and I’d love to honor it with a...

The “Momover” …Secret Fit Belly for Everyone!

April 5, 2010

I have an addiction to purging.  Stuff, that is.  I have this fantasy that we can live in a simple, sophisticated, uncluttered home. No matter how much stuff I try to get rid of, our clutter level keeps rising.  I have a  growing pile in the garage called the give away pile that will...

Skirts For Your Shirts

Skirts For Your Shirts

I don’t have very many skirts, but I wish I did.  Skirts can be dressed up or down, and are so much more comfortable than jeans when the weather is hot or humid.  Here are some great skirts I have spotted for spring & summer. Rayon pleated, a-line skirt.  20″ Lightweight jersey knee-length, flowy...

Spring Is Upon Us!

February 20, 2010
Spring Is Upon Us!

After two weeks of torrential rains and flooding, Angelinos are basking in the SoCal sun.  Yesterday’s high was 78°, the skies are blue, and the mockingbirds are chirping (more like screeching when it’s 4 am).  Spring is upon us!  Which means it’s time to take the woolens to the dry cleaners and pull out...
