Step Away From The Mom Jeans…Fall Must Haves from Lisa Baldwin, owner of Chantilly Blue.

I had often thought it would be a fabulous idea if you could walk into a jean store and leave with a perfect fit in under a half hour, without any sweating or crying, or beating someone as you leave the fitting room. Enter Lisa Baldwin.  In the past I have referred to her as the DenimContinue reading “Step Away From The Mom Jeans…Fall Must Haves from Lisa Baldwin, owner of Chantilly Blue.”

When You Wish Upon a Star…

There are some things in life that I wish for, even though I know chances of them coming true are slim.

I had it in my mind that I wanted to wear jeans but reallyContinue reading “Goldilocks and the 16 pairs of jeans (on the floor) –”
