All-time record for pulling off this look: Nine minutes. The secret: I organize my closets by color. (And I have no heat due to the hurricane so I'm not about to linger.) Wink!

Pockets! I love them. In the front. On the side. On the back of a skirt. With gloves hanging out just so. (Why shouldn't we love you coming and going?)

Librarian-chic with a twist of cheeky humor. (Speaking of twist, the front of the skirt is the back.)

Yo! Are you thinking that these photographs of myself are borderline delusions of grandeur? Maybe. But could I also be reminding you that when you project confidence and style, you attract interesting people into your life?

Before Title IX, girls took Home Economics and boys went to Woodworking. When I saw this skirt, it reminded me that we needed to call my grandmother to finish the apron or else I would flunk. As for the Good & Plenty, what did you expect me to eat on the bus? Cucumber tea sandwiches?

Some people shop their closets. I shop my archives as this outfit is an oldie but still a goody. Note the plastic shopping bag in lieu of a handbag. I even tied a black/white bandana around the handles. You don't have to be 21 to rock it!
