chic-ness interrupted

The cool weather we've been enjoying gives me a great excuse to bring out the black long-sleeved T's that could be considered my "uniform".

In this case, it covers the rash of poison-SOMEthing I acquired a few days ago.  (However, while hiding the rash, it also irritates it.) It's hard to be chic when covered from head to foot - literally - with an itchy rash.

The chic-est thing I've done the past few days is soaking in a tub of water laced with oatmeal flour and Epsom salt.  However, I am gathering many chic ideas from Fiona to incorporate into my schedule as soon as I get this poison out of my system.

My chic-ness has been temporarily interrupted.  I plan to resume it
in a few days.  Meanwhile, I'm going to finish reading A Cluttered Life: Searching for God, Serenity, and My Missing Keys by Pesi Dinnerstein.


I'm going to dream about winning two days of art classes and an overnight stay at NaDa Farm!   It would just about make up for all this discomfort!  (Even if I don't win, I think I'll make at least a weekly virtual visit to the farm.  It's a very inspiring place.)


  1. Oh goodness, I've never had poison ivy but I've suffered horrible bouts of poison oak. Makes me itchy just to think about it. Hope you get over it soon.

    The black top does look nice tho.


  2. Hi Rebecca....Oh, I hope, so much, the rash will ease-up and go away.

    Have a good Monday. Sincerely, Susan from

  3. You look so cool and chic - no one would ever guess that you were suffering underneath. Hope you feel better soon.

    I love black turtlenecks and any black top. It's just a great outfit starter.

  4. Sorry about the rash, that sounds awful.
    I do love a plain black fitted top, such a great find if you can get one cheaply.
    That NaDa farm looks wonderful. x

  5. Poison anything is not a good thing. I hope you feel better soon!
