I felt it fitting to post the Go Go’s as my vacation song because as we have all figured out I really “Go Go” through life, rarely sleeping so of course I am Go Go-ing away for a mini break. Out to go visit a pal I haven’t seen in years and have a nice relaxing break and fun time for both of us, I am heading off to Utah for a couple of weeks.
“Vacation, all I ever wanted
Vacation, had to get away”
Even a Fashionista Maven like me deserves a break sometime 🙂
Tomorrow I will be a part of a fun little Murder Mystery at Shawn Palek’s 4th Annual Halloween Party at The Freemont Bar in Des Moines.
Here is the event invite! I would love for you to come out and have some fun!
Here is the clue for you:
Murder Mystery Clue:
Penelope Clarington (Malachai’s Daughter)
1.) Uncle Edwin is known to be soft in the head. There are rumors that after the war, he killed a man in a bar fight.
2.) You know that your husband, Harrison Clarington, was up and about last night; you woke up after midnight and he wasn’t in bed.
3.) You know that Winifred and Malachai almost always slept in separate bedrooms; it’s kind of strange that she visited him at all last night. That doesn’t seem much like your mother.
With the rainy days and fall weather upon us, the days of umbrellas seem to be around the corner so I thought I would pull out my old school books to tell you how a “Lady” should handle an umbrella.
Remember the days when umbrellas were fun to be under? They were cute, they were round and covered nearly your entire body. They were pretty and gorgeous and fun. It was such a delight to use an umbrella. For me, it nearly made me sing in the rain. The umbrellas for men were stylish, unique and dignified.
What do we have now? A piece of plastic with tarp over a bunch of pointy needly things.
If you don’t know how to open an umbrella you could hurt yourself. I know that sounds lame. Push button. Open. But it isn’t as easy as it looks. And not all umbrellas are the same. Here are some tips from 211 Things a clever Girl Can Do:
Always open your umbrella with the wind blowing toward you. You don’t want it to blow inside out. That is hard to recover from but you also look ridiculous.
Once open, keep the umbrella facing the wind. Your blind, but the rain is off you.
If the wind is suddenly behind you it is better to throw the umbrella in teh gutter than try and battle that black swan kite propeller. Otherwise you could get whisked away.
Once the rain is done, close your contraption or who knows what could end up in it from falling items out of unsuspecting windows of passersby.
If it is all too much, Get a see thru hat. Might be lame looking, but it’s much easier.

My business, Trisha Trixie Designs, creates vintage-inspired aprons and fashion accessories to help people feel “fun and fabulous!” My mission as a designer is to develop aprons that work as a fashion accessory like a scarf or a purse – that serve a utilitarian purpose in women’s daily lives while also helping women feel more beautiful, feminine and sexy. Currently, I am a solo entrepreneur who contracts with other seamstresses. Winning a grant from the “Dream Big, Grow Here” contest would help me hire a dedicated team to produce more aprons to fulfill larger orders from retailers, market my business by getting guest spots on TV shows, and get my aprons into more stores.
FYI “The top four online vote getters (via FACEBOOK votes) along with an additional wildcard selection from our regional contest host will then go on to pitch for the $5,000 prize. The winner of the regional contest will automatically become eligible for the $10,000 grand prize at the pitch off at EntreFest! 2014.
