It's That Time Again . . .

Image
Time for my twice annual (Bi-annual? No, I'm not Bi) week long business trip where Julie can get out each and every night! One of the most difficult parts of this excursion is - as always - selecting what outfits to bring along! I will have 4 nights to enjoy, and of course I need a different outfit for each night. I conducted a poll on my FB page and among my dearest Sister Friends and THESE are the winning ensembles. BTW - the numbers in the upper corners were strictly for voting purposes and have nothing to do with how each outfit ranked. I'm also not sure about the shoes in #10. I'll probably go with the black pumps for this dress - unless YOU think the leopard pumps really work??? This is a brand new dress and this will be it's first outing so I want it to look it's best! Anyway, I am SO looking forward to this trip - doing work I truly enjoy and being pretty each and every evening. A true Win-Win! Stay Safe And Pretty, Sweeties! P.S. - any of you ga

The Ever Expanding Wardrobe

Image
When a gal is out and about, enjoying coffee time with friends or just doing the grocery shopping, the biggest danger is venturing into a clothing shop! My clothing budget is only so big - and that has to cover wardrobes for BOTH of us - so when I spot a pretty little dress a MAJOR conflict is ignited. Take THIS litle number, for example. I spotted it on the rack at a Ross Dress For Less. It caught my attention for a few reasons. It's a wrap around (I don't own one of those) It fit into all my Style Requirements (long sleeves,classy design) Marked down from $80 to $10 (how could I say no!) Since restrictions on changing rooms at clothing stores have lifted, I was at least able to try it on before buying. I must admit, I am STILL on the fence about it. I don't often do this, but I solicit YOUR opinions. Please comment below - Keep It or Pitch It? I anxiously await the verdict. Until the votes are in - and even afterwards - Stay Safe And Pretty, Sweeties. P. S.

A Few Firsts On A Saturday Outing

Image
First - the OOTD. Denim skirt. black pantyhose, black pumps, cream color body suit and grey jacket. Julie was planning a full morning out - a bit of shopping, a mid-morning muffin and coffee stop, and like that. I arrived at my first stop, The Dollar Tree. As I was approaching the entrance, a gentleman was exiting the store. I was still 50 feet or so away from the door, but he stood there and held it open, with a smile on his face, and waited for me. I was a tad nervous approaching him - would he notice as I got closer and "slam the door" on me? As I entered the store I thanked him with my best smile (and best femme voice) and he gave me a BIGGER smile back and said “You’re Welcome”. I had my femininity acknowledged by a (rather cute) guy with NO judgement. Later that morning I went to a Shari's for my muffin break, and I did something REALLY stupid - I locked myself out of my car! (Yet ANOTHER first for me) Being Julie and having to call for assistance was rather fr

Boldly Going Where She Hasn't Gone Before

 I have shared this story elsewhere, but here it is - officially - with a bit more detail.  But first, and most importantly, the Outfit Of That Day. Cream colored body suit/leotard, pink leggings (with pantyhose underneath for warmth) grey sweater and tennis shoes. (add to this my Purple Peacoat and that's how I started the day.) Forgive the Restroom Setting - a gal grabs these photos where she can BACKSTORY - our debit card had not been working.  I tried an online payment and an In App food order, both rejected the card.  So, I was starting our weekly Saturday morning shopping.  First stop was Target where our debit card was again rejected.  I paid cash and left, wondering what to do.  Our credit union has a branch office right across the street from Target, and they are open Saturday mornings, however . . .  THIS is not the face on my Legal ID (but this IS my purple peacoat) What to do?? I needed the card, but didn't want to find a place to change clothes before going into th

I Just Gotta Say . . .

 I am an actor. This is my passion, has been my profession, and continues to be my reason to move forward.  When I cannot indulge in my craft, many things happen. (not the least being I bore my friends with my complaining about it)  But I had an epiphany this week that I thought I'd share here.  However, since these blogs usually don't get many views without photos . . .  Grey mock turtleneck, new black skirt, black L'eggs, old (and comfy) black pumps From the "Could There Be A Connection" Department - I have not been on stage for FAR too long.  And not from lack of trying, either.  I have really missed out on the opportunity to put on a costume and be someone else. And during this drought (the last play was I did was in early September) I have found that my desire for Julie to get Out And About has increased multi-fold. Teal Leggings (never thought I'd type that phrase) Could this be my life seeking a balance - putting on a cute outfit and "being" s

How To Pick Up A Perscription While En Femme . . .

Image
  Nothing is worse than having to delay/cancel a dressing up session because of a certain errand that you must run.  Picking up my perscription at the drug store is one of them.  I have to identify WHOSE scrip I am wanting, which connects me as that name with the pharmacist.  Well, this week I decided to not worry about it!   I had a full Julie Day ahead of me, and I was going to be in the neighborhood of my pharmacy and I needed to get that scrip.   So, wearing a jean skirt, black tights, black kitten heel booties, a cute top and my Purple Peacoat, I ventured into the drug store about 10 AM on a Thursday.   Hardly a crowd on a Thurs AM I walked boldly up to the counter, and when the pharmacist approached I said, "Ummm - I need to pick up my husband's prescription." --- Cop Out?  Good Cover? You decide.  All I know is it worked.  I got the scrip, didn't have to delay my "Day Of Julie" time, and was in and out before I knew it!  I celebrated with a Starbucks
