I have been reading Vogue since I was 10. 

Transfixed by fashion and living in the Midwest was a bit tricky. Thankfully, Seventeen Magazine helped bridge the gap between the unobtainable and within-reach department store separates. 

My twenties and thirties were a haze of good and bad choices fueled by classics, novelty trends and cocktails. 

Finally, after 2 kids and a career change I finally feel like I can turn my "eye for fashion" on myself.

Welcome to Incandescent Matter, a place where I can share my lifelong passion.
