Fashion Incognito

Museum Selfie
By Laurie Bower Epps

Sorry about my delay on writing this post, but I was sick with type A flu, or Chinese flu for most of the month. But this exciting post is too good to not put it out there in the cyber universe.

Many of you that know and love me, know that I'm a classic movies buff. I adore Audrey Hepburn, and I can actually say that she's influenced my own personal style to this very date. Other power hitters for my palette for fashion include also Jackie Onassis, Nancy Reagan, and my beloved mother.

The main reason I wanted to go to Columbia, other than my friend (of course), was to go to the exhibition called "Cut: Costume and the Cinema." My dear friend and college buddy was good enough to take me. I confess, I did believe the exhibition to focus on the classic movies from the 50s and 60s that I so adore, but instead, the focus was on period pieces that are more recent. No harm done, as an English major, I'd seen them all, and I adore them too.

Me and My Sexy Boots Take on the Capitol

By Laurie Bower Epps

This winter is unseasonably warm here in the south, so when my college buddy invited me down to the state capitol for the weekend, I jumped at the chance.


I didn't really dress for my fashion blog, but I was in my favorite weekend leggings. The big success was getting into my sexy boots that I bought the day before I broke my foot while walking the family dog in January.

My youngest is studying state history in school, a visit to the capitol building itself seemed to be in order while we were in town anyway. I really hope to revisit the capitol building and grounds again this spring.
