Okay today I am wearing an ankle length sundress and I can't tell you the last time I wore a dress. So let's talk about fashion and clothes today. Do you like to wear dresses? How often do you wear them? What clothes are your favorite ones? For me this sundress is one of my favorite dresses. I have several long flowing jackets that I like to wear. Now in the fall and winter I am a sweater girl. I love to wear a variety of sweaters and turtlenecks etc...I wear these mostly with jeans.

For me I really don't care much for slacks unless they flow too I don't really like the feel of slacks. When I have to wear slacks they are almost always black. I do wear a lot of capri pants as for some reason I feel a little more comfortable and I wear pedal pusher shorts from time to time.

Do you like for the author to describe what her character is wearing when you're reading about your main character? Where do you get your fashion tips from? Project Runway or Desperate Houswives, maybe The Talk or Oprah's show?

I really hate a lot of floral on blouses but I love and think everyone woman should have a little black dress or red dress. What retro look do you like and what retro clothes (if any) do you wear? I admit I love the tyedyed you wear hats?

Shawls or capes?

Anyway tell us about clothes and what you do and don't like.




  1. Personally, I prefer dresses or skirts but do not wear them at all in the Winter. I LOATHE hose so it is just too cold. Not to mention my calves are too wide for boots. So slacks all winter, sigh. But Spring, Summer, I pull out dresses and skirts. Funky prints, jewel colors, fun, flirty, pretty. Love them all. And I hove tons of fun sandals to go with them. The only irk I have is that so many these days show too much cleavage for work.

    I haven't found a pair of jeans that fit right in over 20 years so I dont even try any more.

    I do enjoy project runway, and Fashion police but its more watching people on the subway.

    Wanna know something I have noticed - the majority of feet are NOT attractive. I am amazed at it looking on the subway...

  2. LOL. I agree on feet. I had to wear dresses for work (office) for years and while I still own a couple, I head toward pants because I am still a tomboy at heart. As the weight slowly trickles off I will join Pamela in the flowy dresses because I can still crawl around if I have to and not scare the horses.

    I love hats, but lost most of my hat collection in a storage unit I used. Between a roof leak and rodents most of my straw and felt hats went the way of all things. I think I shall pull out some of my hats and begin to wear them again.

    I love shawls and scarves. I have billions, well okay, lots of them in all colors. Rarely does a cool day pass without me wearing at least a cotton scarf. Too much fun.

    Stacy and Clinton are my only fashion links and I haven't seen them in a while. I don't always agree with them, but I do learn something every time I watch.

  3. Mare - scarves and shawls are great! You crocheted me a really fun one I use at Faire!

    I also love to accessorize - bracelets, belts, and fun necklaces - I have tons of necklaces. My favorite way to make an outfit my own!

  4. I prefer leggings, a pretty oversize top and ballet flats - but I'm a big girl and it's a good look for me. The dresses I wear are long and flowing. Love sweaters in the winter too, long ones over the leggings and little boots.
    Since I read historical fiction, I love to read about the costumes.
    Like Mare F, I love shawls and scarves too.

  5. I'm retired and getting more casual all the time. I own no dresses and that's partly because I'm only 5' tall and it's hard to find dresses. In the last year I lost 20 pounds and have been able to go down a size. I wear denim pants with an elastic waistline almost all of the time and in summer I switch to pedal pushers. I switch from long sleeves to short sleeved tees for summer. In winter I like wearing cardigans with my tees. I like jewelry too and that and a few purses are my main accessories.

Upside Down Post

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.

Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
