Clothes shopping can be tough because I’m fat, but I do know how to sew and if worse comes to worst, I can create clothes for myself. Bra shopping is a pain, but at least no one will see those bras (without my permission). But shoes. Shoes. I’ve worn an 11 in women’s shoes since […]
Breastfeeding and Babywearing Jewellery
It’s World Breastfeeding Week! In celebration of this, I thought I’d share some beautiful necklaces that can be worn to entertain little hands when breastfeeding or babywearing.
Do You Have a Work Uniform?
Sometimes getting myself dressed for work seems way harder than it ought to be. Every once in a while, I change clothes three times before leaving the house in the morning, all the while shaking my head at myself: Seriously? You haven’t figured this out yet? The outfit that seemed okay in the morning can […]

Is Fair Trade a Fair Deal?
I am a hippy, dippy, long skirt and Birkenstock wearing, soap making, farmer’s market shopping, non-profit working, dyed in the wool, bleeding heart liberal. I also love to shop. And I love to eat. And I enjoy my cushy life. But, do I enjoy my cushy life to the detriment of others?
Cyber Monday: Click Click Spend
I'm being good this holiday season and sticking to my post-recession budget, but I have enjoyed "window" (ha!) shopping on this fine Cyber Monday.
Secrets to Black Friday Shopping
There is a magic to shopping on Black Friday. You can’t just go; that’s how people get into trouble. Yes, I know most stores pull back their good sales they are having the week before and only have limited items on sale with some really good deals. Stores know people are caught up in the […]
eShakti is a website that claims to offer the ability to order custom fitted clothing via the Internet. You (or a friend) take your measurements according to the instructions on their site, enter them as you’re ordering your clothing, and the garment will be made to those exact measurements. They also offer the option of […]
Lunchtime Poll: It’s Tights Season
I love tights. I really, really do. Maybe it’s because I have plenty of inner thigh meat so I like wearing dresses without the dreaded chub rub, but I could gladly bypass summer and stay in my hosiery year round.
I live in Kansas, and at this point I figure it’s reasonable to assume that it’s going to be really, really hot here for the rest of my life. If you’re in a similar place, it might be a good time to add something new to your hellish-weather wardrobe. Here are some ways to do […]
A decent thrift store will have a wide variety of clothing to chose from, but from my own fashion experiance there are ten major types of things to be found digging through the racks. This is a guide to what you’ll find, and how to wear it.
Monday Night Flashback OT: the Mall
Like most girls in the eighties and nineties, I think I spent most of my babysitting money and allowance at Claire’s. Dangling earring, bracelets, jelly bracelets, barrettes, obnoxious socks, you name it, I bought it.
I’m Allergic to Paying Full Price
I come from a long line of bargain hunters. I have been able to find the clearance aisle of a store since I was able to walk. I cannot go to Target without walking up the backsides of every aisle, eyes peeled for the tell-tale red sticker.
