Bombshell – Day 25 I’m back from my trip to Los Angeles.  I have many fashionable things to say about it, but right now, I’m just too tired.  My flight left at 6:30 this morning and I returned home at 10:30 p.m. — which means I had about an eighteen hour day.  It was really fun though, but I COMPLETELY forgot to take any pictures of myself in my non-Bombshell-blend-in-with-the-other-writer-clothes.  In fact, the only picture I did take was this…

Bombshell – Day 24 This is really the best I could do for a Bombshell bowling outfit.  Yes, I could have worn a dress, but that would seriously impair my bowling abilities and ruin any chance I have of crushing my husband at bowling in front of our children.  It rarely happens (although I beat him today!) but I feel like it’s so important to show kids that women, just as much a men, can not only be good at…

Bombshell – Day 23 My family and I are going away for Thanksgiving and as a Bombshell, I felt like the luggage I’ve been using for the last ten years just won’t do.   For one thing, it’s a giant yellow North Face duffel bag which instantly wrinkles all my clothes and that I usually wear as a big dorky backpack so that my hands are free to hold children’s hands in busy airports.  I can’t imagine throwing that thing…

Bombshell – Day 22 This is the third and final pencil skirt from my Bombshell shopping spree.  It’s vintage.  It’s red.  It’s linen.  And believe it or not, it’s actually comfortable. To me, this outfit is so, “Mr. Peterson, I have the files you requested.”  The shoes say secretary.  The red skirt says, bored secretary. I wore this outfit all day and was just fine with it.  No dreams of running home and putting on pajamas.  The only downside is…

Bombshell – Day 21 Thanks so much for all your kind words and encouragement about yesterday’s outfit!  I am now seriously considering going back and getting that cheetah muff!  I must be coming down with Bombshell fever. Here’s the second outfit from my “Skirt Chaser” shopping spree — I wore it all day and loved it.  I loved it slightly more than my first Skirt Chaser outfit simply because the waist line on today’s skirt is maybe an inch bigger…

Bombshell – Day 20 Hello, again.  It’s me, discussing fashion for the second time today.  Let me start by saying I took a trip to the most wondrous place called “Skirt Chaser” in Santa Rosa (for those of you who live nearby me). Have you ever been to one of those shops where there’s so much stuff that you almost get overwhelmed?  You just feel like you’re too unfashionable and you should just head back to the Target clearance rack…

Bombshell – Day 20 I have managed to make a post every day this year except for three times.  The first time I had chaperoned my son’s field trip (by screaming bus) to the Heirloom Seed Festival and was so exhausted by the end of the day that I fell asleep with my children at eight o’clock still wearing my clothes from the day.  I had planned on posting after my kids fell asleep and well, that obviously didn’t happen….

Bombshell – Day 18 The pencil skirt is one of the most iconic items in all of women’s clothing.  It never goes out of style, it’s been around for decades and it works on (almost) all body types.  One of the best things about pencil skirts is that they’re not just limited to one style — you can find pencil skirts in Rock and Roll, Euro Chic and American Classic, not to mention, Bombshell.  It’s this simple little skirt that…

Bombshell – Day 15 I am not a morning person.  Never have been.  Never will be.  I would really prefer to go to bed about two in the morning and wake up about ten, then shuffle around in my pajamas until lunch.  But children and animals don’t really care if I’m a morning person or not.  Animals want food at the crack of dawn and even more bewildering to me, children want to play at the crack of dawn.  So…

Bombshell – Day 14 I’ve been doing this fashion experiment for 319 days so far and yesterday’s outfit earned the most compliments out of any outfit I’ve worn this entire year…. Why am I being photographed in a bathroom?  I’ll explain that later.  First, I’d like to share all the compliments.  I’m also going to write them down in permanent marker, put them in a time capsule and bury them in our yard for future generations and mutant cockroaches to…
