The SC enjoys wearing as much ‘resplendent red’ as is humanly possible during the holidays. Instead of decorating my home this season, except for a bright fuchsia bow (from the scarf installation) on the front door and a poinsettia in the living room sitting on the round deco blue glass covered table, I’ve been decorating myself. In the spirit of experimentation, I wanted to focus on spending time with friends and family, so that’s where I directed my energy this year. However, I have been admiring the glorious decorations and environments created by the beautiful Tameras of Tamera Beardsley HERE and The Menopausal Supermodel HERE.
My weekly visits with Diana, who photographs Style Crone, continue to be a high point of my week. This is how Diana makes me feel! We talk and shoot, talk and shoot. Tell stories, laugh and sometimes cry.
Or we have serious discussions that cover life’s continuum. The twists. The turns. The sideways curves.
It’s been almost two years since our collaboration began and I am very grateful for Diana’s vibrant visits, like an angel of wise and bountiful energy who enters my space. Not only is she a photographer, but a true and valued friend who was excited about the black ruched pants that I recently pulled out of my closet, where they had been hidden for several years after having been purchased at Buffalo Exchange.
The verging on transparent black and red polka dot scarf was discovered at a street market in NYC; I don’t remember the year.
Also making a holiday visit are: vintage red jacket, vintage red/black earrings, vintage black gloves, red/black vintage brooch and vintage black velvet beret with red/black hat pins – estate sales, black heeled boots and black turtleneck – retail sales from years ago.
