Inspiration in Reverse – my ’90s

I’ve existed in a bit of bubble this past year. While I was gazing back at the ’90s, a comfort blanket to me of the softest faux fur, I barely realized fashion, culture and even prominent blogs were as well. At first, I couldn’t get enough of the music I listened to. Music is almost always the treat that lures me into the well-furnished den of other things. … Continue reading »

Watch out, Martha. No, really.

So do we have Leonardo da Vinci to thank for the existence of those shiny, sometimes gaudy, always fun little metallic rounds we know as sequins? Not exactly.

What’s in a Name

In case you’ve ever wondered, when coming up with the name for C29 a few trusted friends joined us in the creation process. We clipped images that evoked warmth, well-treaded locations, worn and adored items, and the unique blend of rustic and modern.

Ducks Go Quack, Humor Causes Smile Lines

It’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and it’s likely most of us are relaxing, running errands in hopes that the day after the “blackest” of them all is a calm clear blue, OR, more likely, most of us have glazed-over eyes while catching up on what transpired in work, Facebook and YouTube while we relaxed and stuffed our faces.
