Still talking about inexpensive garments and fit

Mindreading: a fitting lament of good, cheap and fast.

Quick post this morning. A friend shared the blog post above, from the Fashion Incubator blog. This explanation of how subjective fit can be, with its graphic photo of the same gown on two very different bodies, is alone worth visiting the blog. This is so a propos to my last post about the inexpensive prom gown, and my earlier post on cheap fashion. Kathleen says it so well, with this product engineering icon: You can't have all three. Choose good and cheap, fast and good, or fast and cheap. 'Nuff said.

Getting what you paid for - it's prom season!

 This started out as a quick response to a newspaper article, but turned into a pretty long post. Just a warning!

Sunday mornings are very quiet in my house, a lazy time spent reading the paper (Boston Globe for me and Metrowest Daily News for my dh) and consuming way too much coffee. My husband broke the silence today with an outburst of "Aha! This is just begging for a response!" as he handed me an article from his paper.

Paying it Forward

I've been busy, lately, too busy to post anything. Between sewing for clients, travelling for a 4-day board meeting in Seattle, and my part time job, there has barely been time to breathe, let alone write. But I have to let you in on my latest new role, because it's making my heart beat faster and giving me a great sense that all's well with the world - the role of mentor.
