Shop Your Girlfriend...

Oh yeah! It starts TOMORROW, people! Bringing together one of my favorite hobbies–”matchmaking” clothes and people (Erika Mitnik! This event–and I–are responsible for her acquiring a non-black clothing item!!!)–and supporting public education. See you this...

Best Style Post Ever Oct10

Best Style Post Ever

At least for me, so far. Because it involves a story, and first and foremost I am a reader (and occasional writer) of stories. John Bryant has been one of my best friends–always a BFF–since the mid-1980s. As in 20 years ago. To this day he is one of the people who knows me better...

At the Ball

Check out this beautiful couple at last weekend’s Cardboard Ball, organized by local artist/genius Mykl Wells in support of All Souls Procession/. More photos coming soon–including one of the tank that I initially insisted was a...

Jolie Jessica Sep27

Jolie Jessica

We spotted Jessica, a visual communication student at UA, on campus last week. I’ve clearly gotten over any shyness I had about asking people to take their photos. Now I’m all “Hi! You are so cool/stylish/pretty/interesting, can I take your photo for Tucson in Style!”...

Noche en Blanco

Tucson held its second Noche en Blanco this past Sunday, September 22nd. As before, the location wasn’t announced until midday of the event–this year, the courtyard of the music hall at the TCC. It was beautiful, in so many ways. Seeing people carrying tables and chairs, sharing...

Carly Quinn

Carly Quinn Designs, on 6th Avenue just south of 6th Street, is a Tucson treasure. The colorful tiles are delightful, and Carly will do custom work. Lovely Carly has amazing style–jeans, print tank, goddess-like wavy blonde hair…and the gorgeous glossy red tilework next to her is...

Style for the sunshi...

We spotted David, a UA groundskeeper, looking super stylish at work the other day. Sun protection is essential here, of course, and some people find a way to stay sun-safe with great...

Megan and Sarah

How cute are these two? Say hi to Megan Kimble, managing editor of Edible Baja magazine, and Sarah–both graduates of UA’s MFA program in creative writing (just like me! except they’re way younger and probably wise enough to avoid accruing a zillion dollars in student loan...

My son has very definite ideas about style. “I only trust Thomas–oh, and Raul–with my hair”, says the six-year-old blond. The boy’s got good taste–I gotta hand it to him. I cut his hair when we was a baby, but when it got thick and course, it was time for...

Things I Didn’t Buy on My Birthday Aug23

Things I Didn’...

Okay, well I didn’t really go on a shopping spree. But it’s my version of one. I took pictures of things I didn’t buy at Goodwill. (I didn’t buy anything at all.) When I was younger I would actually go shopping at the mall. Then I would window shop. Then I started to...

Beth and Kim

How lovely are they? I LOVE this photo. Beth teaches yoga, and Kim is a massage therapist. They told me they were twins and I believed them (not true). I love the hats and...

Wrangler man

A Wrangler man is so much better than a Marlboro man. James, a barkeep at Tap & Bottle was looking sharp the other day. When asked about his wardrobe, “I’m wearing all Wrangler, I think”, was his reply. We like! And his wedding ring–his wife’s uncle made...

Southwestern prints Aug13

Southwestern prints

Seeing a lot of these lately. At first I was like “eh”, because, well, we live in the southwest. But seeing a cute piece here and there, worn with a bit of a ‘tude, is working for me. I loved these shorts, which were found at Buffalo. (I forgot your name, nice person at...

Maybe I’m a weirdo, but I love the eye candy that greets me when I go to get food for the...

Thanks to my co-editor Mike (who WILL start posting again as soon as he finishes his grad degree, right??), I have a new bike! My 20+ year old hybrid was stolen (due to my neglect) over a year ago and I couldn’t find an affordable replacement that I liked. Then Mike emailed me a...

Monsoon Style Week continues Jul22

Monsoon Style Week c...

We were on vacation last week–but back to monsoon fashion!! I spotted Jen (is that your/her name? it was over a week ago and now I can’t be certain!) enjoying the soft afternoon rain on her Fourth Avenue porch with her dog, whose name I know for...

Monsoon walk Jul10

Monsoon walk

First, my dog and I went on a walk. During the afternoon, in July. That in itself is a wonder appreciated by those of us in the desert. I love my old-school Saucony sneakers. Orange, or course. We saw a pretty lady sitting outside of that new market (Hopyard?) on Fourth Avenue, and asked to...

Monsoon Style Week! Jul08

Monsoon Style Week!

This week’s posts (multiple posts, ooh!) will all be monsoon shots…things and people I saw during these past few monsoon-y...

The lovely Suzanne McFarlin–coach, consultant, and coordinator of Greater Tucson Leadership–has an awesome husband. For her birthday, he surprised her with a selection of dresses, and asked her to try them on, and they would choose which one she’d keep for her gift....
