Blast from the Past


You know how sometimes you put together lots of cute outfits, then forget to take the pictures out of your album long enough to upload them? Yeah, that’s kind of what happened to me this past January. Before we go on with the new fun in Beaumonde, here are just a few older fashion adventures for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy. ❤

Can’t forget about my recap! I sure had fun putting together and wearing these outfits, so I hope you’ll enjoy perusing them!

Game Night!


Whew—what a jam-packed day this has been! I got up bright and early to meet a friend at the beach, where we got some sun and talked about dolphins.


“All those teeth—they’d be scary to swim with!”

 Next, I popped into the boutique, where Hazel announced that her part-time graphic design courses start next week! She’ll still hold down her shifts, of course, but it won’t stop me from missing her.


I know she’ll do great, though!

 I even outfitted a couple of customers.


One girl was so hot, she walked out wearing nothing but a swimsuit top!


Then I sold this mannequin outfit…

and saw it walk in on another customer! Crazy, right?

To finish the day off, I met Miss Avery at Starry Hill. We had met there to start the summer, and today, it looks like we met up there to close out the summer as well.

In other words: it was fun, but also kind of bittersweet.

 And after all that, I was more than ready to retire to my apartment. 

…where I proceeded to blog (okay, and game) myself to sleep.

Punching in at Silver


I realize it’s been a while since my last post, but things have just been so busy lately! The boutique is bursting with activity as tourists pass through town on their way to the beach, and all of my store assistants are making plans for the fall, so it might be a little tricky to juggle schedules for a while. But today, something happened that felt like a breath of fresh air—one of my customers hit Silver on her stamp card!

The lady herself!

The lady–Yvonne–herself!

 This is so, so exciting, for a few reasons; 1), it means I have regulars, and 2), it’s never happened before! After getting over the excitement, I decided to go to the Starry Hill with Shandra, where we spent some time staring at the sky. 

And listening to the crickets!

And listening to the crickets! (Boy, were they loud!)


You Call This Summer?


July was great—lots of long nights out under the stars, smelling barbecue smoke at the picnic area, walking along the river, and chatting under the perpetual rainbow in the park. But all of a sudden, these past few days have turned downright chilly. It’s disheartening, to say the least.

I had so many plans that might now have to fall by the wayside (what if one jar of homemade jam is all I can manage this year?!), including selling out on my summer stock at the boutique! But in the end, Mother Nature’s in the one in charge, right? Ah, well. I guess winning a contest sort of makes up for it.

Happy Birthday to Me…♬


So far, my birthday has been fantastic. It started bright and early when I got up, got dressed, and walked down to the boutique. I was expecting, you know, maybe my assistants to say something. I certainly wasn’t expecting this!

Once everyone had said hello, Michaela and Emmylou gave me a couple of costume pieces from Teatro Amare, and of course I had to go wear them around town. I mean, who wouldn’t want to show off such cool, comfortable, stylish clothes?

After that, I had just enough time to dash home and change—

into an even more summery outfit!

…into an even more summery outfit!

—before dashing back out and up to meet a friend at the Starry Hill.

“Happy birthday, by the way!”

“Happy birthday, by the way!”

And even though it was pretty late by the time I got done…well, what’s a birthday without cake? Off to the pastry shop! I hope everyone’s day was just as wonderful as mine.

Fun Under the…Stars?


My day was packed with summery stuff today. Around ten I made it down to the beach again, where I met Hilary.


I just love this salty air!


Swimsuit time

And, yup, beach time means swimsuit time…

The day just flew by, as summer days seem to do, and before I knew it, I was sitting down to an absolutely fabulous dinner with another pal from the boutique.


The best part? There was passionfruit sorbet on the dessert menu! (Yay!)

By then it was almost midnight, but I still squeezed in a quick change before meeting Avery at the Starry Hill, out near where the Lavender Fields bloom during spring.

I was just dazzled by all the stars. So far away from the city, the night sky seems to take on a whole new life! And after all that—and some summer deals at the Buyer’s Center—you can believe I slept like a rock.

Let’s Hit the Beach!


Summer officially started today when I stopped by the local beach this morning. The sun was just coming up, so it wasn’t too hot. The best part was, I got to wear a swimsuit!


You wouldn’t believe how many of these things I have in my closet…

 After that, I spent some time around the store, and met a gal dressed up in a fully traditional kimono! That was something special.


You don’t see clothes like this very often!

 In the evening, I tried my hand at a boho-chic-themed contest … and won, of course.

Not that my score mattered—the weather alone was enough to make today fantastic. Well, that and my newly decked-out apartment!


According to a magazine I read the other day, orange is in this season, so…


I went pinky-orange for some summertime fun!


Summer = Sun … Dress!


Well, I’ve been bitten by the sewing bug once again. For the past quite a while, I’ve been plugging away at this design, trying to bring it to life. It should be done by this Saturday, and who knows what’ll happen? If it looks even remotely similar to my design, I’ll be happy. Well, okay. It has to be comfortable, too.

Summer sunshine

A cute way to get some summer sunshine!

June in Photos


I don’t want to believe it’s July already, because July means it’s the middle of the summer, which means the summer is halfway over. That’s not cool, man! (No pun intended.) However, July also means the warmest days, the ripest cherries and blueberries and peaches and many other delicious fruits, and the best time to visit the lake. It even means my birthday, which is sort of sad—I’m getting older! Heck, at least I’ll get cake. I’ll live with it. So to usher in the month, let’s usher out the month of June with a bang-up slideshow of my outfits. Yeah, so there aren’t that many of them this time, but they’re all so cute!
