"By Invitation Only" October 2015

International Blog Party
Hello everyone, we thought it would be fun to share our thoughts on what,
to each one of us,
is our "take everywhere,"  "can't leave home without it,"
item of clothing 
or Fall accessory.

plus we have a new member of our international group:

Laura Wilson
La Dolce Vita Culinary, Cooking Classes, Shop, Escorted Vacation Tours


find our more about her HERE

ok, now for my "item" I can't leave home without...

I thought I would just make a little list of the things that are almost always with me:

my solitaire diamond stud earrings
(I always wear them, the stones were my grandmother's & mean so much to me).

a big long long scarf, pashmina or cashmere to wrap around me
(these items are truly beyond wonderful, & oh so useful)
check out the alpaca one at The Arrivals, 7ft long/$95.00

leopard booties with a slim heel 3" high

midi leather pencil skirt

black tights

Kindle, CellPhone,etc.

 ( when I leave town no matter where I'm going I take it)

OK, now on to current affairs, tonight I'm attending the dinner party for all of Houston's
consular officers & their spouses, so it should make for some very interesting conversations.

Univ of Texas Longhorn football stinks this year
so do the Houston Texans (so sad for JJ Watt)
but, since I'm also a huge fan of the New England Patriots I have reason to be really happy.

we are experiencing the first of the Fall days's invigorating!
already wearing transitional apparel.  YES !!

there are pumpkins & bales of hay everywhere around town, giant huge pots of beautiful chrysanthemums in every color possible greet us in the front of all the grocery markets
& plant nurseries.  pumpkin spiced latte...yummy.
& it's starting to get dark earlier.

please visit all the other members of
who have linked in below to see what they're up to,
we all love to hear from you, our precious readers.
