I like my clothes to have a touch of whimsy or attitude. This is easier to do when one is retired, for sure. Even casual workplaces don’t encourage “Kiss Me, I’m French” sweaters. A little dog and a Buddha provide just the right formula for me today, to look pulled together without looking like a retired lady’s catalog (no names).

I love wearing my Petit Chien sweater (similar), because the dog is so adorable – he makes people smile. I’m a cat person, but who doesn’t love a bulldog puppy? The velvet skirt (sim) is one of my favorites too, bought at a Housing Works Thrift Shop in Soho. It’s by Trina Turk, and the design and colors are easy on the eyes. The Buddha inspires me to peaceful thoughts during the day.
