Long Read. My editor at my college newspaper days is now a well-respected journalist covering the rise of domestic extremism.  Her latest piece discusses how a walking trail in rural Oregon became a flashpoint for far-right extremism.

Until yesterday, I had never heard of Baroness von Sketch Show and my life was the lesser for it.  My friend Michelle shared this hysterical video about making sense of fashion after a certain age, and I loved it.  I watched it four times.  Laughed every time.

You see, even for a fashion blogger, the current Gen-Z and Young Millenial trends make no sense to me.  How can the same wardrobe contain these high waisted ’80s mom jeans and a swimsuit made out of dental floss and a leftover COVID mask?  It’s a mystery.  

Regardless, the video is hysterical.  It has replaced Last F**kable Day as my favorite thing to watch when I need a laugh.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
