Driving home from the city after a certain hour is not one of my favorite pastimes. This time I spent all day […]

Summer Hair Care: Just Add Oilhttp://tishjett.com/2015/07/summer-hair-care-just-add-oil.html http://tishjett.com/2015/07/summer-hair-care-just-add-oil.html#comments Sun, 26 Jul 2015 08:37:57 +0000 http://tishjett.com/?p=28622 Yesterday I went to my favorite hair salon for a “brushing” and a consultation on when it will be necessary to touch-up my balayage, response: “Immediately.” As promised, I asked Michele about summer hair care, i.e. sun, salt water, chlorine and all most particularly for those of us who color our hair. Her response far exceeded my expectations […]

One for All, All for Onehttp://tishjett.com/2015/07/one-for-all-all-for-one.html http://tishjett.com/2015/07/one-for-all-all-for-one.html#comments Fri, 24 Jul 2015 10:43:59 +0000 http://tishjett.com/?p=28551   Are you thinking, “This is a no-brainer?” I suppose that almost anything with some form of white blouse or shirt can be thought of in that way, but I wonder whether young women in other countries are as attracted to the possibilities of that do anything, go anywhere chemise blanche as French girls are.

But then I thought, “Why not put one together that could theoretically be worn in exactly the same […]

Regrets? There’ve Been A Fewhttp://tishjett.com/2015/07/regrets-thereve-been-a-few.html http://tishjett.com/2015/07/regrets-thereve-been-a-few.html#comments Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:08:16 +0000 http://tishjett.com/?p=28384 But, too few to mention. Now, which surely you have already anticipated, I’ll mention them anyway. It’s like the ridiculous phrase, “it goes without saying” followed immediately by what it was that doesn’t need to be said. Exercise. There, I’ve said it. That’s my big regret. I’m ashamed to admit it, but it’s been two years […]

The Peasant Skirt, Tricky But Doablehttp://tishjett.com/2015/07/the-peasant-skirt-tricky-but-doable.html http://tishjett.com/2015/07/the-peasant-skirt-tricky-but-doable.html#comments Tue, 21 Jul 2015 07:47:28 +0000 http://tishjett.com/?p=28352   Peasant skirts, they are soooo pretty. They feel easy, breezy summer, but they take some confidence to pull them off I think. I love them and once upon a time wore them quite often in the summer.. Some were long, some were mid-calf length. I wore them with no nonsense shirts or t-shirts, playing […]

Normally she is here with her husband, three daughters and as of six months, her grandson. It would be an understatement to say that her life is busy. She is a doctor involved in policy in the Ministry of […]

We are now asked to examine “our brand” which is to say, the image and personality we project  in our lives. In […]

Where Has All the Fun Gone?http://tishjett.com/2015/07/where-has-all-the-fun-gone.html http://tishjett.com/2015/07/where-has-all-the-fun-gone.html#comments Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:00:47 +0000 http://tishjett.com/?p=28187 Your comments and observations on Tuesday’s post were fascinating and generally seem to confirm the sad state of affairs in dressing. Annette suggested perhaps we have too many vestment choices and being so overwhelmed by myriad styles that many women decide the “uniform” of jeans, t-shirt and some form of sport shoe is the solution […]

From a strict shirt to a frou-frou ruffled blouse, there is something for everyone and just about every occasion. I love pleats and can happily live without ruffles.
