Mira’s Closet: 06/15/15: So ready for summer.

MClosetMira’s no fashionista, but she definitely has her own sense of style…
And now here’s an update on just that.


First an observation: I do not have an insightful observation to offer this month. My brain is mush right now. I do, however, have a question to ask. Is anyone else still in school right now? I have a whole week to go and I’m phoning it in. It’s not that I don’t want to do my job, but just like the kids, I’ve got summer fever. I’m ready to have all the time in the world to do absolutely nothing if I so choose.

Now here are some style tips/clips from
Torimy own personal fashion guru, trainer, and my physical inspiration for Mira.

Mira’s Closet: 05/18/15: First Impressions

MClosetMira’s no fashionista, but she definitely has her own sense of style…
And now here’s an update on just that.


First an observation: So this weekend was my first time vending at a Comicon. To say I was nervous would be an extreme understatement. I couldn’t eat anything but a handful of crackers until after the first 4 hours, but that was part geeking and part stressing. I wanted to make a good first impression for all the locals and out-of-towners attending the event and encountering me and my work for the first time. Not that any of this actually contributed to book sales, but I made a point to get my hair done, grow out my nails and paint them with clear polish, and wear angel apparel and accessories to match the theme of my book. I’m not a real girly girl, but I guess I felt pretty. I think I did make a good impression, but the whole time I was wishing that I was wearing a cape (I have three). If you’re interested, you can see what I was wearing here.

Mira’s Closet: 04/20/15: Details

MClosetMira’s no fashionista, but she definitely has her own sense of style…
And now here’s an update on just that.


First an observation: If you have followed any of these posts, my meager attempts at fashion commentary, you know that I really like to accessorize. The only problem with that is that I limit myself greatly because of my personal quirks. I’m not really into purses, I have problems with my feet so don’t care much for shoes, and I have to be in the right mood to really indulge in jewelry. So what does that leave? That leaves hats, scarves, hair and body wraps, flowers, bows, and feathers- all for my hair. I recently wore an outfit that was very basic; a solid colored shirt, dark denim jeans, and dark shoes. However, the whole ensemble was brighten up with three small additions: a multicolored flower worn in my hair, a bracelet matching a highlight from the flower, and earrings matching the same highlight. It is small details like this that can change a basic outfit into something special and also add vitality to a story. I don’t believe in unnecessary descriptions, but sometimes small details really can make a difference.

Mira’s Closet: 03/23/15: Seasonal

MClosetMira’s no fashionista, but she definitely has her own sense of style…
And now here’s an update on just that.


First an observation: Seasonal trends seem to abound in every industry in one way or another. With fashion it’s simply more obvious. It’s spring now so that means bright flowery colors and cardigans- at least for me anyway. I always bring something with me in case I get a chill, so the cardigan is the way to go for me. In fall it’s worn over long sleeves and in the spring over short sleeves. As for bright colors, I’ll be wearing lots of yellow, blue, and lime green, and of course I’ll have flowers in my hair. It’s just my thing. Even as the seasons change in my book, Mira’s wardrobe changes. It just makes sense.

Mira’s Closet: 02/23/15: A Passing Phase

MClosetMira’s no fashionista, but she definitely has her own sense of style…
And now here’s an update on just that.


First an observation: I always assumed that fashion had to be loud and outrageous to stand out and or make a statement. It turns out that simple and subtle changes can be more than enough to stop and make people notice. I recently changed the style of my hair, and it seems to some, that I’m a whole new or different person. I’m not, of course, but it’s still nice to be noticed, even if it’s only a passing phase.
