Anniversary Rêveuse

So believe it or not, today is the one-year anniversary of the Rêveurs Revelation Fashion Project!  Fabulous, right?

First, I want to say how grateful I am to everyone who has participated in this along with me, either in pictures or on their blogs or just by doing it in their shy, subtle way, dressing the part with a whisper in my ear and a Mona Lisa smile each month.

Second, congratulations to the people who found out about this jaunt and then read The Night Circus and fell in love with it.  (You’re welcome.)

Third, thank you also to the people who have encouraged me to keep doing it.  I have been thinking about this project quite a bit lately, what with the anniversary of it approaching and all, and I’ve decided Continue reading “Anniversary Rêveuse”

May Rêveuses in Bloom

Here are today’s 13th-of-the-month pictures, taken (as always) on my phone, so you know the photo quality is awesome.  (It occurs to me that I should perhaps carry around my actual camera on the 13th of every month, but then I wouldn’t have the excuse of a pitiful device to blame for my inept photography skills.)

Enjoy! Continue reading “May Rêveuses in Bloom”

Guess What Today Is? The 13th of the Month!

Calling all rêveurs and rêveuses to show yourselves when you make your wardrobe choices today.  Below I’ve posted my rêveuse picture for March.  Feel free to post yours as well, or link to it in the comments section.

Someone asked me if she could include gray in her outfit.  I don't see why not!  Today I wore a shirt striped with black, white, and two grays and a dark charcoal skirt and black shoes.  But I'm highlighting this ladybug bracelet my son gave me one day on a whim, because it "matched my outfit."  That was a 13th-of-the-month day, too.

Rêveuses, Rêveuses Everywhere! (And One Young Rêveur.)

Well, today was really remarkable for those of us identifying to be dreamers.  I wore my usual 13th of the month color scheme, and when I got to school this morning, I was stunned to see Continue reading “Rêveuses, Rêveuses Everywhere! (And One Young Rêveur.)”

The 13th of the Month Approaches…

…and you know what THAT means:  Dreamers’ Day!

Those of you who have been reading along for a while know that back in August, I read Erin Morgenstern’s exceptional debut novel, The Night Circus.  It profoundly impacted me in all the best ways, and I wrote about it here on this blog, and then I decided that in response to this beautiful story, I would dress a certain way on the 13th of every month.  I invited everyone I knew to do it with me.

I am thrilled to say that people ARE doing it.  Friends, acquaintances, even people I don’t actually know…  Believe it or not, my blog has readers in sixty countries now — a fact that utterly blows my mind — and I keep discovering here and there more people who are reading the book and falling in love with it as I did.  In fact, it feels as if a charming little community is blossoming around this story, unfolding like paper stars in a cascade across the reading world, each one yet another person who has been persuaded to pick up the book and come to cherish it as we all have.

This Sunday is the next Rêveurs Day.  I would really love it if all those who are participating would send me pictures of themselves dressed as Night Circus dreamers so I can share them on my blog, or if you’re posting it on your own blog (the fabulous and lovely Laine at idodoodletoo is doing so), please link back to me here.

Let’s see if we can grow this delightful fashion movement a little more, shall we?

Today, I Am A Rêveur (November)

So this week we’ve been enjoying Book Fair at school — truly one of my favorite times of the year, academic or otherwise!  And this year our school spirit squad decided that we should have a dress-up day to commemorate a favorite literary character.  That day was today — and how fortuitous that it fell on the 13th of the month!

So here I am…as Continue reading “Today, I Am A Rêveur (November)”
