do as I say (and as I do)

https://i1.wp.com/www.pics-site.com/wp-content/uploads/Lady-Gaga-Meat-Dress-10.jpgThis morning I got an email from my friend Rayanne. The subject line was “Dear Chelsea Chronicles” and the message included a fashion question. At first I thought that I had accidentally published my last post sans the great photo I was still in the process of tracking down of Seersucker Thursday and my super long hair. But it turns out she just wanted my advice. Minutes before I was about to take Dear Chelsea Chronicles live, here I was getting a question from another friend who values my advice.

Her timing was almost impeccable. An email yesterday would have yielded inclusion in today’s post, but regardless, the continued requests are making me look forward to including Dear Chelsea Chronicles as a weekly entry. And for the record, while I answered Raye’s question right away, she did indeed provide fodder for next week’s edition.

Then at lunch I talked to my friend Tom (although he isn’t necessarily in my demographic) about adding a weekly feature called Buy This! where I highlight one recommended item to buy. The item might be something that is on super sale. It might be an investment piece. Maybe something I already have and love. Or covet. Whatever the case, so many women tell me they want to go shopping with me that I consider this my own way of virtual shopping with all of you, but without the hit my budget would inevitably take if we hit the stores in person.

The conversation with Tom was still a bubble in the air when another mind-reader made herself apparent. I got an email this afternoon from my friend Kasey recommending a regular Style This! feature where YOU, my readers, send me an item, and I style it for you. (It looks like I am going to be getting well acquainted with polyvore after all.) I love it. A challenge. Bring it on.

But please, don’t ask me to style a meat dress. Or sweatpants.

  1. yea! two of my favorite things combined: Chelsea Chronicles and Polyvore. For the record, you can never give me too many Polyvore sets on this website.

  2. I’ve been meaning to tell you but awhile back I took your “buy this” advice and got the emerald green dress from anthropologie. Love it!! (And prayers to your family…is that weird to combine w/fashion?)

    1. I’m so glad that dress worked for you! It ended up not being the most flattering on me, so I had to return it, and I’m sad that I haven’t found anything in that shade of green to replace it. I think you should submit a photo for the blog of you in the dress. And thanks for the kind thoughts on the family.
