Hello! I'm Ann, an artist from St. Paul, Minnesota, with an passionate interest in fashion and photography. I started this blog to document my personal style and make pictures with a strong sense of place. Before art school, I studied commercial photography and I'm enjoying combining locations with my style.
I started my blog after an personally intense period in my life. Both of my parents were facing declining health and my life was revolving around their care. I had so little time for myself and found I was wearing way to many pairs of black stretch pants. This is not how I wanted to be, so here I am in all my glory! I am a 51 year old gal enjoying life and sharing my styling with you.
I think my style is artistic yet classic. I enjoy pattern mixing and have an entry closet jammed with coats, my favorite item of clothing. I'm wearing clothing mainly purchased at department stores during the last 25 years. If it's been in my closet this long is it vintage?...... I'm selling items at my local consignment shop so I'm picking up some new pieces there also. Currently my blog runs the full spectrum of my interest in designer labels to thrifted pieces. I adore detail and craftsmanship in well made clothes. I think personal style isn't so much about purchasing power but creatively configuring items and color.
