Siblings

I was at a real loss on what to write about this week. My chaperoning of the Daisy Scout field trip? The end of the school year? Well, it came to me on Sunday afternoon when Lillyana got her bum stuck in a bucket. Yes, you read the right. Her rear end was wedged into a five gallon bucket that the kids had filled with water and were playing with.

She was hysterical laughing. We all were. Then something so awesome happened. Her bother stepped over to help her get out. Let me tell you, her butt was wedged in there good, and it was her almost 4- year old brother that came to the rescue.

When we found out we were expecting a boy for our second child, I have to admit I was nervous. I grew up with sister as a sibling. My mom comes from a family of six girls. How would Lillyana deal with having a brother?

I have now realized there was never any reason to worry. They get along like me and my sister always did. They play well together. Enjoy each others company and most importantly help each other out when needed.

It was daddy that was needed to get her out - all while we were still laughing - but the photographic evidence shows that it was the one she occasionally calls "a pest" that was the true hero. Brothers - always there - especially when your butt is stuck in a bucket.

“You Really Need to Fight Every Day”

October 02, 2019 1 Comment

In the five years that I’ve been writing these fashion blogs I’ve come to the conclusion that the creative heads of these worldwide companies have daunting, or almost impossible, daily jobs. The headline you see above came from Alessandro Michele who, in January 2015, became the creative director of Gucci, the company that was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921 and currently has 500 stores worldwide.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
