On Saturday I had an appointment and needed to kill some time, so I ducked into Bloomingdales to get out of the freezing cold. The last time I tried to take a picture there I was stopped. This time it was so frenetic no one seemed to notice. Still I was feeling a little shy from my last try so not wanting to get into anything I only took a few.
My son is so excited about Christmas that he keeps asking me over and over — what did I get when I was his age? My answer is always the same, I don’t remember. What I do remember about Christmas is my mother baking like crazy, popcorn balls, fudge, molasses cut outs, sugar cookies…my grandfather and great-aunt bringing us chocolate Chanukah gelt and my dad ringing the bell on Christmas Eve pretending he was Santa and then leaving his old Army duffel bag filled with gifts on the dock.

So many fashion bloggers put themselves in their blogs – literally. For someone like myself who devoted a large part of their youth to a career in the performing arts I’m surprised by my own reticence to doing this and can’t see myself modeling my favorite shoes or clothes. Maybe it’s where I’m at in my life — raising my son and trying to find that all too illusory balance between family and work or perhaps it’s my innate fear of the power and danger of the Internet and the loss of freedom that goes with that. Who knows? Maybe it’s also because I’m not sure where I fit in? Is this really a fashion blog? Whenever I write a post there’s a place to click category. For almost a year now every post has been checked uncategorized. It’s only recently that I’ve started to try and figure that one out. Maybe it’s also because I am a mom and my focus has now shifted off of myself to taking pictures of my son or that really I’m the one that likes to take the pictures rather than pose for them! In addition there’s nothing like motherhood to make one lose their sense of vanity. I’m sure most mothers out there know exactly what I mean. I’ve gone whole days without looking in the mirror. Something that would seem so shocking to my 20 something self…so, I decided I would try and find a few different photos through the years to post and found I actually had much more than I thought. Here’s a sampling — so what category would you choose for my blog?
