The coat does not need to be longer than the skirt or the dress. A cheeky blazer in velvet, navy wool, or plaid looks divine with jeans or with a trouser. A cape will give you glamour.

I welcome constructive comments on my look but when it's negative (e.g. "I hate that hat") I ignore it. Listen to yourself.

I don't like "black tie" as I would rather buy a raincoat.  Still..one must honor the occasion.  Trick:  Buy something you can pull apart and wear as separates.  I turned the heat down on the skirt by pairing it with a casual jacket.

My darling friends Annie (5) and Grace (3) happily agreed to demonstrate why a brightly-colored raincoat is the perfect antidote to a dreary day.

Dario the tailor asked me if I made the denim coat since it's lined with mattress ticking.  Oy, I wish I could be so creative.

If you insist upon being conventional, you will never ruffle any feathers but you won't get to laugh at yourself.  And that would be a pity.

A knit 'baseball' hat. With leather covered buttons. Always choose the unexpected...it will make you smile. (Lola Millinery).

Ya gotta have a gimmick.  A faux plastic bag in the iconic Burberry plaid festooned with a real Burberry scarf; a toggle coat with bat-wing sleeves, and a top hat made out of boiled wool are all playful gimmicks meant to amuse.

This wacky hat was all alone on the sale rack so I had to take it home.  Evidently, it was a "bit much."  I love a "bit much."
