It’s somewhere which isn’t where I am, that’s for sure!).

Cartagena Crop

An out-of-focus to capture the OOTD. In a hurry to find air-conditionining, it’s no surprise all our shots were blurry When my friend and I visited Cartagena des Indias, Colombia earlier this month, we were fully prepared… or so we

Mixed Media

Sometimes I suffer from split-brain. Whatever spring night this was was one of those occasions. I couldn’t decide on how I felt much less what I wanted to wear to dinner  so  I threw together this juxtaposition of silk brocade and
