Walking Through the Desert

In a prior post, "Music to My Ears," I blogged about an evening in the park in which my husband and I went to see our friends, Mark and Arlette Willis, in concert as they sang beautiful classics.  Mark Willis recently celebrated his birthday and Arlette planned a...

Baby Jay’s Faves

These are some of the cutest and greatest must haves on my list right now. Sperry Top-Sider Boat Shoes I love these shoes, even though they are supposed to be worn on a boat, and there is no water within a couple of hours of Tucson.  These cuties come in matching...

About the Business

Earlier this week, I wore a Ralph Lauren navy pinstripe suit.  The Ralph Lauren jacket has a breast pocket, but the breast pocket is not functional. What I mean by functional is that you cannot put a pocket square or a silk scarf in it.  Most women's suits do not have...

Tropical Sno

If you have never had a "sno ball," you don't know what you're missing.  It is a sweet little dream that I enjoyed as a kid and still enjoy today.  My husband and I decided to stop by Tropical Sno at the Foothills Mall for a  sweet treat. I ordered a mixture of...

Bayou Classic XXXVIII – New Orleans

Attending the Bayou Classic is a tradition for my husband's family.  All of us are Southern University graduates, so we share the same love for our alma mater.  This year, we attended the Bayou Classic in New Orleans at the Superdome together.  Although Southern did...

My First

Ralph Lauren was my first --- my first "real" suit, that is.   He is one of my favorite classic designers, and I especially love his timeless pieces. During my college years, I was a sold out Tomboy --- jeans (very baggy jeans), t-shirts, and NIKE shoes.  I look back...

Chezale Presents

I love fashion and Broadway, so I have been wanting to feature this young lady for quite some time now.  I saw some of her fashion show runway shots and loved her pizzazz on the runway.  I had also heard great things about her feature performances in popular plays...

Desert Cool

I have a thing for hats.  They can make you look so cool.  With temperatures reaching over 100 degrees in the desert on most days, shelter from the sun is a necessity.  I purchased this hat to go to the beach with some friends about 7 years ago.  It spends most of its...

The Challenge

Here I am with my first post.  I decided I would challenge myself to begin with what is already in my closet.  I cannot buy new outfits, shoes, etc.  I have to work with what I already own. I began by giving several pairs of shoes, handbags, jeans and other...

Goodbye Fear

I love the mountains.  This weekend, we went to Mt. Lemmon.  The weather was wonderful with a nice cool breeze.  The mountains are so beautiful and majestic, but they also can invoke fear in the bravest of men.  I have often had a dream that I am falling. I have this...
