In Memoriam

4 Jan


Pomchi pistol Mary Poppins VanDyke Brown (age 10-ish) crossed over on January 3, 2017. She battled congestive heart failure for a year, and her tiny body was tired. It was a perfectly peaceful transition; she was in my arms.

From her hard-knock beginnings as an injured country stray to an anxious, long-term shelter resident to a lady of leisure and style with an editorial side job, Mary’s life ran the gamut. Loyal, loving, saucy, and cantankerous, Mary was straight fire, and we’re lucky she came our way. 

Adios, lil’ red sass. Immense love to you. 


And Now This…

1.) How did three months pass?

2.) How can Prince be gone? It seemed he’d sashay and slay his way through eternity. He is, just in a different form. What genius. Thanks, Prince.

3.) Gotta post more than memorials. We need some good grammar fails. Stay tuned…

It’s the season of love! Mock me if you will, but I think Valentine’s Day is downright adorable. What is far from adorable, however, is the plethora of über-tacky gifts that typically accompany the holiday. Heed this warning: If you purchase a stuffed animal or Whitman’s Sampler for your Valentine this year, I will storm your location, rip said items from your beloved’s clutches, and—with the help of my spiniest stilettos—stomp them to bits. Viva romance!

As always, I’m here to help with gift ideas. Boy, did I find something cool this year. It’s local, sexy, empowering and environmentally-kind: Pope Joans Lingerie (, 505.610.2290).

Pope Joans lingerie is hand-patterned, sewn, dyed and embellished in the heart of Albuquerque. Dainties include chemises, bras, panties, boxers and more. Most garments are made with silk, silk velvet, bamboo and dyed with plant-based pigments. Vibrant colors, edgy silhouettes, ergonomic design and free custom sizing help set Pope Joans’ garments apart from the rest. No underwire or padding here — Pope Joans owner/designer Liesse Jones is all about natural beauty and femininity.

I Might Need to Slap Someone

5 Jun

lacoste eclairs

As many of you know, in my world, slaps tend to occur when something over-the-top-fabulous happens. 

If I had one of these Lacoste eclairs in my hand right now, I’d likely slap the next, say, three people I cross paths with. This is why I always carry injury waivers in my purse. 

For the 80th anniversary of Lacoste, Fauchon created a series of four flashes (signature of the sign) clad in green, magenta and white. Name your poison: Creamy green tea, almond, vanilla, lemon and strawberry.

A fond farewell to fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau, who died yesterday in Palm Beach, Florida, surrounded by family. She was 81.

And now, we pause for a shoe break.
