It turns out I'm more naive than I thought. I blame it on being white. See, I thought we'd pretty much handled the worst of racism. When Lyndon Johnson got civil rights laws passed, when affirmative action came in and as a liberal Baby Boomer, by the new MilleniumI thought we were in fairly good . . .
After hearing so much buzz about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, we logged into Amazon Prime and proceeded to binge on both seasons. Visually, it's a feast of color and style. The 1950s fashions are the best part for me, even though the performances are top-notch and the writing is clever and very . . .
It's almost impossible to think of a day when Facebook won't be part of our lives. And yet, like everything else, it probably has a life span and eventually will reach an end, a day when it's no longer current, or interesting or useful. Or it's too abusive. And something else will take its place. . . .
So many "Me Too" stories are out there but one of the most interesting to me and one of the most telling involves the actor, Jeffery Tambor, a very good actor and the star of Amazon's show Transparent. Of which I am a fan. Tambor is alleged to have sexually harassed actors on the set and even . . .

This, however, turns that right around. I know, I know. You're afraid to "jinx it." But nothing positive you think . . .
Dark days, dark days. It's been a terrible and tragic week and one in which self-care becomes even more important. I know that I can't take much more of this horrific atmosphere in our country. As I write this it's hard to think about anything other than the families of victims of the most recent . . .
Have you ever fantasized about moving to an idyllic country setting? A more relaxed lifestyle? Lots of natural beauty? My friend, Linda Hobden, isn't anything like a country mouse, but she made just such a move when she left the hustle & bustle of London for the English . . .
The de Young Museum in San Francisco's exhibition of Muslim fashion was one of their best, in my opinion. As an American woman, I don't know much about modest fashion or the hijab. But by the time I finished perusing these stunning designs, I grew to appreciate the cultural backdrop and current . . .
Ok, I won't bury the point. I got a new bag. That's it, above. Orla Kiely. But the story's in HOW I got it. On my recent London trip a British blogger friend and I decided to meet up at the Fashion and Textile Museum. The featured exhibit was a designer named Orla Kiely. I'd never heard of . . .
