Special Agent Dale Cooper

What would a Twin Peaks Halloween be without good old Agent Cooper? And, of course, plenty of doughnuts and coffee black as midnight on a moonless night.

Happy Halloween from Twin Peaks!

Happy Halloween! Not only is Twin Peaks one of my favorite TV shows, but its upcoming return to the screen and my new home in the Pacific Northwest made it seem like a perfect costume this year. While there are many amazing characters to choose from, I went with Nadine (post-traumatic head injury). As far as I know, Nadine is not one of the characters returning for the reboot, but I feel like a cheerleader for the show in this look! Oh, and it's fun to pretend to have super human strength.

Halloween is my favorite! In the process of geeking out over the spooky holiday, I usually end up with multiple costumes (who can pick just one?!). This is my more low-key look this year - the impeccable, original, octogenarian fashion icon, Iris Apfel. This costume was super easy. All I had to purchase were her signature spectacles, and everything else I pulled from my closet. If you have yet to catch the recent documentary about her (Iris), see it now! She is impossibly charming, hilarious and insightful, and her relationship with her husband will make your heart melt. My second costume (as well as Igby's get-up) is coming tomorrow! Stay tuned.

Fab Fabric

 Lately I've been unable to resist textured textiles and fringe of any kind, so it's no surprise that this wrap skirt spoke to me. Paired with a super lived-in tee, classic denim jacket and my tried and true Chelsea boots, this outfit was fit for an easygoing evening.

Sips and Sounds, Volume 19

Vol. 19
The Sip: Cure for Pain
The Sound: Morphine, Cure for Pain

I don't have a lot to say about this record, but I could go on and on about the cocktail. Rich, bitter and boozy with a hint of sweetness, this sipper encompasses some of my current flavors. It's super simple and so delicious. Recipe below!

In a glass, combine 1.5 oz tequila (I used Milagro Reposado), 1.5 oz alcoholic root beer (I used Small Town Brewery Not Your Father's Root Beer) and several dashes of bitter. Stir, add a big cube and enjoy! In a pinch, you could use non-alcoholic root beer, but make sure it's quality stuff.

Come cool weather, I invariably reach for old favorites - denim and cozy knits, particularly of the yellow variety.

I'm feeling the need for needlepoint lately...embroidered details are feeling so right! This intricate jacket was nestled in a rack at a consignment store, and I snatched it up for next to nothing. Paired with a basic denim foundation, its beautiful colors and pattern really sing. My gratitude goes out to the hardworking hands or high-tech machine that made this magic happen.
