The other day I was going through my closet, looking for clothes I already own that I can mix and match to make new outfits. In the process of trying them on and looking for things to pair together in other ways, I was reminded of when I bought them.
Like the yellow, Chinese cheongsam blouse I bought in San Francisco, soon after I’d been chased out of a store on Stockton Street by a man wielding a meat cleaver.

I’ve always been comfortable being alone. Perhaps that’s because I was an only child and I’m good at entertaining myself, but I know a lot of single women and men over 50 who hate being alone. It reminds me of Susan Sarandon’s comment in the film, Shall We Dance, about why people get married.
“Because we need a witness to our lives.”

In September I shared a beautiful, taupe, flannel jacket from Whistle River Trading, and everyone loved it, especially me. Last week I went to a ranch in Montana… Legends of the Fall country, and my jacket was the perfect thing to wear in their cool, crisp weather.
Today I’m sharing another one of Whistle River Trading’s pieces, this gorgeous velvet skirt. It has the Holidays written all over it.
