Merci, Danke, Arigato and Thanks

Jun 30, 2010

Back in April, I asked my lovely readers to express their gratitude for all that CHS has given them by nominating this humble blog for Washingtonian’s “Best of D.C.” contest in the Best Local Blogger category.  Sure, some people might consider this shameless begging, but I prefer to think of it as light encouragement with only a mild guilt trip attached for good measure.   After all, I went to Catholic school, and I know that guilt is a powerful motivator. *wink*

But at that time, I didn’t think I had a snowball’s chance of actually making the cut because I knew the competition would include local blogs like Prince of Petworth, Fashion is Spinach, Metrocurean, 2Birds1Blog, DCist and the like.  How was my little, one-fashionista show going to compete?  Little did I know that my readers would turn out in droves to support me.

When I started this blog I had five readers, and four of whom were my Mom. (Hi Mom!)  Then a few weeks later, my Dad started reading here.  So that gave me six.  But never did I think I would see six-digit monthly traffic, 1,500 Twitter followers and over 500 feed subscribers.  And all the credit for that accomplishment really belongs to you ladies (and gents) for telling your friends and co-workers about the blog, for commenting on the posts, and for just coming back here every day.  Because if I wasn’t a hopeless site traffic addict producing something that people liked to read, I’d have quit doing this a dozen times by now.

So I just wanted to say thanks for the support, and thank you for taking the time to nominate me, because you certainly didn’t have to.  And to the winners of this competition, Megan and Chris…I’m coming for you, and your little blog too.  (Cue the flying monkeys.)

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
