This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

In anticipation of Thanksgiving, I’m wearing one of her harvest-colored creations.

I got this dress during my college days, but I still receive compliments on it. This proves that Betsey’s styles live on. Here you can see what she’s selling now.


I’m a sucker for all the holidays. There isn’t one that I don’t adore. So expect to see more holiday-inspired fashions this season.
