Spring White

Welcoming springtime are a white textured skirt from Roxy and her gift from the artist, an original blouse.

Her Palestinian grandmother crocheted these florets, but the dress is of her own design.

Stroll Through History this Saturday from noon 'til four

See you there!

The blooms are here, but a late winter chill keeps her vintage sundress under a trusty cardigan. See it large for lovely button and purple piping details. Target slippers guarantee rainfall, says she. Hurry springtime!

North Shore

Both young ladies appeared within minutes of each other this morning. First came the earth tones assembled from an aunt's gift of a tweed jacket, Great American thrift vest and a blouse from an Old Navy closeout sale. A friend in Texas sent the hat. Her complement found the black dress at T. J. Maxx and used the savings to splurge on a bag and shoes from Prada.
