Hello my lovely visitors! A few words about links you'll find on Glimpses of South Pasadena:
Certain links to books and products are affiliate links, and I may earn a commission for any purchases that you make. This will not incur any additional cost to you!
I am not asked by anyone to recommend books, products or services. If I recommend them, it is because I love them and want to share the goodness.
I am an affiliate for Amazon, eBay and Target. To make it easy on the both of us, you should assume that any links to Amazon, eBay and Target books, products or services are affiliate links and that I will receive a commission from your purchase. (Thank you!)
I am not affiliated with any of the many other companies, authors, stores, organizations, clubs, services, camera sellers, film labs, publishers, websites, apps or any other resources linked in this site, and I earn no commission or any other compensation from them. (But I want you to know about them all the same because if I mention them, they're awesome.)
All efforts are made to ensure that affiliate links are disclosed in accordance with the FTC.
In December of 2007, after many years on the west side of Los Angeles (and at least a third of those years spent stuck in traffic on Pico Boulevard) my family settled into a happy little house in South Pasadena. This daily blog covered almost 5 years as I put down roots in my new home town -- and almost 5 more as I settled in and became a South Pas old-timer. Here it is...my time capsule of South Pasadena.
You can always find the blog at its original address:
For 2 years I covered ethical fashion and breaking style rules at chiccontraire.com. Check out my blog archive for those who wear what they want, not what they're told. Timeless looks, ethical style, slow fashion, fashion history, curated picks and more. I really loved blogging here, and left the best, evergreen posts up!
Thank you Charlie's Coffee House for hosting my photo exhibit, South Pas: Observed. From October 2011 through January 2012 my pictures graced the walls of the best place in town to get a cup of coffee!
