Hi Everyone! No, I’m not dead; though some days I feel like it. Our little family is going to be growing by one member in the fall, and while I’m very excited, I also get the worst morning sickness ever. I’m starting to feel a little better, and I hope to be up and doing more in the coming weeks.
There are a lot of articles that I have on the back burners as I’m not in a terribly thinky place right now. I’m finding that what helps me to feel a little more life-like is doing. I’ve been stalking pinterest like a drug addicted monkey the last week or so, and I am filled to the brim on great ideas that I want to try.
I’ve also been missing my sewing machine something awful lately, so I have a plan to kill two birds with one stone. I’m going to be participating in a sewing/DIY blog challenge called The Summer of No Pants.

When the weather turns colder, my wardrobe changes from light flirty blouses and long skirts to sweaters, cords, jeans and jewel tones. The accessories I reach for tend towards unique knitwear and wrapped fabrics.
Thick wool coats sporting wide hoods can give the feel of an old world cloak while still allowing for free movement through the darkening day-to-day grind. Another piece that can add a bit of modern witchy flair to your winter wardrobe is the classic maxi cardigan.

This article has been a long time in coming. I can remember years ago looking for something somewhere that had either a list or a store that compiled what I, at the time, believed Pagan fashion to be. For me, it was always a sort of semi-elegant, boho chic look.
Unfortunately, a lot of what I found back then was print t shirts and ritual robes. Off and on over the years, I’d asked different groups of folks what they wore. What was ‘Pagan Fashion’ to them?
