It’s time for another installment of, “I’ve Never Seen that Dress Before!”. Partly a chronicle of my not-so-secret obsession with dresses, cardigans and other furbelows….and partly my contribution to the visual conversation on ‘fashion’ in the blogging community.

A few weeks ago we drove down to Gig Harbor for the day, it was sunny and we sat on the docks downtown. There were jellyfish and crabs and friendly locals to chat with. We also visited the Harbor History Museum. There was a one-room schoolhouse, old sailing ships and there was….a giant tortoise.
A giant tortoise, people. Needless to say, we were impressed and we’re looking forward to our next trip to Gig Harbor!
Today I’m excited to share a new feature called “I’ve Never Seen that Dress Before!” which is partly a chronicle of my not-so-secret obsession with dresses, cardigans and other furbelows….and partly a contribution to the conversation about ‘fashion’ and apparel that is happening in the online blogging community.

These photos were taken last summer in Riomaggiore, Italy. One afternoon we picked blackberries and made homemade sangria. In the evening, we walked down to the beach for a picnic dinner.
Over the last few years, I’ve really enjoyed reading fashion blogs that allow us to see how regular people dress everyday. It may not be couture, but I find it a lot more interesting to see what folks can put together with what they have on hand. Bringing more D.I.Y. and individuality into our apparel enriches our sense of self.
Furthermore, I find fashion blogs far more inspiring than certain magazines which promote a harmful and narrow-minded ideal of beauty. People come in all shapes and sizes, and it’s important that fashion be a reflection of who we are rather than of what the fashion industry would make of us.
I hope you’ll enjoy this feature over the next few months and send me any questions or comments you may have.
