Meet the Ladies: tHoS Contributor Meghan Gabriel

I first met Meghan about 5 years ago, through a mutual best friend (hers in childhood, mine in college). There was immediate and easy rapport—I felt as though I had known her for decades, not minutes. Though fast-paced lives in two different cities make seeing each other a bit more difficult these days, I forget the…

Meet the Ladies: THoS Contributor Elisabeth Schettle

One of the most exciting moments for me to date was when I got my first email from a reader in 2010. I realized—with a fair degree of shock—that someone was not only *actually* reading, but taking the time to reach out and share a bit of their story. That email meant a lot to me then, and…

But today’s PC is far…

Rockin’ Barefoot Tess’ Ella-Ella-Ella-Eh-Eh-Eh…

If it’s not clear yet—I adore ankle booties. With denim; with dresses; even with fierce pencil skirts and prim lacy tees—and year-round, too! I’ve tried the hidden wedge 80%/20 western-inspired Clyde ankle boot from Barefoot Tess (and loved it) for casual/weekend wear, but hadn’t come across a more elegant, elevated ankle bootie until….the Barefoot Tess…

Lady Mary Would Likely Wear(-y) Barefoot Tess!

Let’s talk two of my favorite things: Downton Abbey and Barefoot Tess. As an unabashed anglophile, former Victorian & Edwardian literature student, and 1920s style aficionado, my Downton obsession is arguably as natural and expected as my next breath (and as you might guess, as an eldest daughter myself—I am team Lady Mary…) About as…
