in her closet: To choose a favorite clothing item would be impossible because so many pieces have my affection! To choose favorites will mean that there are some sullen dresses hanging in the closet. And there's nothing worse than a sullen dress, am I right?! However, this peacock blue and green dress from my collection of 1950's party dresses is always a stunner. This kind of dress is a confection—it exists purely for the sake of delight. Things in that category generally put me into ThrillOverDrive. I love them, and this dress is the perfect example of that.
in her casa: This peacock blue record player! Records + color! Please, Lord, whoever invented the record player give me more of that sort of invention. The wrist hovers over the vinyl as the slender fingers drop the needle ‘whirrrrrr, pop, pop, clickity, pop’, and then the music starts. It's beautiful, it's nostalgic, it's imperfect and perfectly so. Every night we turn that record player on, and meal time is transformed into something to remember.
