Greetings from sunny Los Angeles! In the photo below I’m posing in front of Snow White’s wishing well. No, I’m not in the Disney studios, I’m on Larchmont Boulevard, a sweet little shopping street in the middle of the city. The woman who recorded the voice of Snow White in the original animated Disney movie lived in this house for years. She really did speak in that squeaky, innocent voice and was known for being a bit nutty. The wood siding on the house is unusual for the area, and I wonder if the owner altered the building so it looked more like Snow White’s cottage from the movie. Whatever the reason the home is as well-known locally for the little wishing well out in front as it is for the celebrity who lived here. The house is now for sale. I hope the new owners find the wishing well as charming as I do.
I found this bright pink twill jacket last year at a local charity thrift store and snatched it up for around $5. It’s a lot of fun, but I do need to be in the mood to wear it because it’s so noticeable and definitely not the thing to wear when I want to blend in. I love the fitted cut, the multi button cuffs, zig-zag stitching down the front, and all the other little details. I’m wearing it with a collared navy blue blouse and my new favorite denim skirt. The stripe purse is a counterfeit Kate Spade (I call it my Fake Spade) given to me by my aunt years ago. The sandals date from the 1990’s.
