Oh, Caterina (Collectif)


There are only a few events in the year that I get excited about - Christmas is first and foremost, followed by the illusive Brimfield Show that comes around just 3 times a year, and, last but not least, Collectif's big end of season sales.


I mean, I am sure there are more to be added to that list but whenever I see Collectif announce the start of their 50% off EVERYTHING sale (which typically happens at the end of summer and end of winter), I get giddy with excitement.

The Case of the Time Traveling Skirt


This summer has had a bit of a theme with items of clothing finding their way back into my wardrobe and I am A-OK with that!

What's Sara Reading? Supper Club by Lara Williams


If you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into?


That is the overarching theme of Supper Club by Lara Williams. I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of this novel recently in exchange for my thoughts on the book. It was an exciting opportunity, especially since I've been trying to keep up with sharing book reviews on this blog this past spring. Have I been successful in that? Maybe somewhat, kind of...

We All Scream For... (Custom Playsuit by Button Button)


...ICE CREAM! 



Yeah, you're seeing things properly - I am an ice cream cone of delight and whimsy from head to toe! This incredible two-piece playsuit was created for me by the amazingly talented Miss Clara Button of Button, Button for my fifteen minutes of fame in the Darling Dames Pinup Pageant at this year's Viva East weekender in Boxborough, MA.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Viva East 2019)


WOW. Just WOW. I don't even know if this post will be coherent or will be anything other than me gushing over all the amazing ladies I got to meet last weekend at the Viva East Rockabilly Weekender 2019.

Mine Again (Bernie Dexter)


This dress used to be mine. Then it wasn't. And now it is again! Yep, this is another tale of a dress worn years ago when I was a size small then sold when it no longer fit. If you missed my earlier blog post about the importance of body positivity and how buying a dress in a larger size MEANS NOTHING WHATSOEVER, catch it here.


I snagged this on the Buy/Sell/Trade groups recently (even though I have not bought a single dress since April due to the whole buying-a-house thing we're doing) because it was one of my favorites, but also because it was my FIRST vintage repro dress.

Disconnected (Getaway House Boston)


Since March, Cody has been in boot camp to prepare to test for his black belt in Krav Maga. That meant that on top of going to class 2-3 times a week, he also went to a 3 hour boot camp every Friday night, coming home exhausted and drenched in sweat. He had 2 pre-tests this spring and then on June 1, he had his final official black belt test, which lasted over 4 hours and was the most physically and challenging afternoon he has ever conquered. It was challenging to watch as well! Especially the final hour when I knew he was having trouble with his muscles cramping up on him.
