Hello World!


Well, I am officially a blogger…well at least Word Press thinks so.  Thanks to my friends Carol and  Gina, who both have suggested this, I am now part of the cyber-blogging world.  I’ve always felt that Tweeting and Blogging is a tad bit, shall we say, narcissistic, but who am I to judge. 🙂

they call it a blog

Actually, I enjoy reading blogs, and many friends do a great job with them. It’s Tweeting that I always figure (and know I’m in good company), “I don’t think anyone out there is remotely interested in what I have to say in tweets on an ongoing basis”. Of course, I am on Twitter…@TerryOBrien, but I don’t really Tweet. So I thought, I do like to write, Plus, I have a lot to say…and feel strongly about fashion, clothes, accessories, Etcetera fashions, and live by the mantra…It’s better to look good, than feel good…  Actually, it’s great to pull off both, but sometimes when you feel lousy, and can pull off a cute look, it’s mind over matter…so, here is my blog. Or at least, my first shot at it. I understand I can edit this, so will probably use that feature. Often.

I’m thinking this will be a work in progress…and we will learn as we go along.  Plus, I have no followers to this blog now, so I shall consider this a Journal.  Speaking of Journals, and I will delve more into this in a later blog, I do think it’s important to journal your outfits…so you don’t always show up wearing the same favorite outfit we always pull from the closet.  I keep a mini fashion log on outlook noting what outfit I wear to industry events, parties, and work functions…so I don’t always wear the same Cheetah patterned swing skirt, with brown turtleneck, and brown boots, to every industry meeting.  Of course, now there’s an app for that, and you can keep track of these on your iPhone.  And they’re free…lots of fashion-related apps are free.  Of course, sometimes, you get what you pay for.

Goodbye World – Girl’s Night Out, for a movie and drinks, and not necessarily in that order.




  1. Terry,

    You are the cutest thing! Who WOULDN’T want to follow a blog from you and get your great fashion advice? Better yet, who wouldn’t want to shop Etcetera with you?

    Can’t wait to be a follower!



  2. Journal of what I wear…that would suggest I have more than 3 favorite outfits for when I wear real clothes- as for which running shorts or cycling kit I wear I mentally keep track so others do not think I only have one pair of each.

    Love your style and you are always dressed to impress! As for me…well comfort first and then I try, I do try to add a bit of style. My 14 year old helps with that too.

  3. Looking forward to lots of fashion advice…love the journal idea. And, I can share a very humorous story with you sometime on that subject.

  4. This is really wonderful. A step I have yet to take in my world, so I am looking forward to seeing your progress and learning from your experience.

    I have a friend here in Austin that is an Etcetera gal. A really nice line.
    Excellent quality.

    All the best to you,

    Julie B.

  5. I’ll be a Ms. T groupie! I must say, I have fairly high expectations for this Blog..then again, you are never one to disappoint.

  6. There’s definitely an e-card for this……
    and I’m going to get that App right now. 🙂

  7. Wanted to comment on your VERY FIRST post. Well done Terry! You are so right about mind over matter. I wore a boring outfit today, and had a bummer day. I bet a snappier outfit could have boosted my spirits, like you suggest. Tomorrow, tomorrow….

  8. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads
    up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two
    different internet browsers and both show the
    same outcome.
