  1. Good morning, Pamela. Thank you for this great collection. I’m going to make Sally’s French toast casserole for Easter brunch! Love the Milan style. ❤️

  2. Thanks sounds so good…maybe I will join you in making the same here! Thanks Marcia.

  3. Thank you for a most welcome, non-political, post. I’ve been reading you for sometime and have never seen any “political” comments. So I’m guessing that someone said something?
    Well, shake it off girl, your posts are always entertaining and informative and there is always something that speaks to us, whether it be fashion, food, locations, etc.

  4. No one said anything, Rhoda. But, we have some new readers and I am just assuring them they will not find that here. Sometimes it is difficult to hold my tongue in certain situations, but I have managed to so far! Thanks for your kind comment.

  5. Thank you for all you do for your readers – I know it’s not easy. I’ve been a follower of your blog for years and appreciate the time involved for you.

  6. Pam, I really enjoyed your choice of articles today as well as the Milan video. I’m encouraged by the wide leg long trouser style jeans which I wear here. It is a bit fashion forward here in southern small mountain town Colorado. But all of my jeans are now this comfortable easy to wear style. I loved the article about the 70 year old fashion mentor for the Parsons students. Our bodies do change as we age, even if our weight gain is modest. The students also had to take into consideration disabilities. At 79, still interested in being stylish but disability limits my shoes. Many older women wore very sturdy sensible looking shoes or sneakers. Very interesting blog today!

  7. I enjoyed the video even though I can’t imagine wearing most of what I saw. There was an animal print jacket at 3:46 that I would happily add to my wardrobe though and I liked some of the wide-legged jeans.

  8. I love to watch the videos and rarely see clothing that would look good on me. I am so glad to hear from you and hope you are still improving. Thanks Elaine.

  9. Spring in Milan. I was there 14 years ago around this time though I can’t remember what anyone was wearing. I noticed nearly all the pants/jeans were wide legged and many were frayed rather than hemmed. I don’t care for the ones that drag on floor. I’m still trying to find the right way to style my wider legged pants. My favorite outfit was at 2:46, orange cropped pants with gorgeous brown jacket, I’m tempted to try that look though I don’t know if I can pull it off. I can try it in a fitting room. One look I won’t copy is the very short mini skirt. Its best left to the young. On women of a certain age it just isn’t a good look. Happy Wednesday.

  10. I love the street scenes. Most of what they are wearing would not be worn in my small lake town, but I love to see what others wear. The other articles are interesting. Thank you for all you do.

  11. If there is a way to try it without spending money, you should just to see what you think. When I shop alone, I spend more time in the dressing room. I would rather spend the time in there than coming back to return it. Have fun trying something new.

  12. You are welcome, Cheryll. I also love to watch street scenes…live or on video.

  13. Interesting style video, thanks (though I did watch with the volume off). Whilst I know red is supposed to be trending this season, I saw ‘your’ grass/ kelly green in there too, Pam! Anyone else notice the oranges in there as well? Something I’m looking forward to emulating with my own Deep Autumn wardrobe!

  14. I loved the video and I saw lots of things that inspired me to experiment re colour combinations eg. the lady with light wash jeans and camel peacoat. Again, the shoes and the bags changed the look of outfits. I loved the Easter decorations too.

  15. I couldn’t help but notice all the people with their noses in their phones! It’s a wonder they get where they’re going without an accident. LOL
