Beautiful and rugged

How do I start a blog post after 3 years of absence and major life changes? I think I start by burdening readers with only the most important info and then getting down to the pictures of great clothes!

The most important thing: Barn to Evening now lives in San Francisco. Yes, right in the city, with nary a barn in sight. Has this changed our fashion sense? Not really. Ok, we are a little more sleek, probably, since we're not mucking out horse stalls. But we still really really really like our original aesthetic: clothes you can look really amazing in as you transition from whatever your stall-mucking job is to whatever your favorite evening activity is. For example, I happened upon a Nicole Miller sample sale in my favorite store in Florida and snapped up two sleeveless cocktail dresses similar to the one below. Would look great on some people with some strappy heels. But I'd much rather wear it with some serious biker boots -- boots you could muck out stalls with if you had to in a pinch. I mean, you never know when you're going to be called upon to muck out stalls, right?

That's how we roll.

I'll be posting pictures of outfits I think are awesome.

Oh, and a shout-out to my blog buddy Citizen Rosebud. When I moved to Cali, she moved to WA. She's continued to build her business and is doing great. Check her out!
