My name is Sherry Dryja. I’m a food and fashion writer. Most of my food writing can be found in Beer Connoisseur Magazine and on their website. I also used to write for my own food blog, Kitchen Dilettante but recently gave that up to focus more on fashion.
When I turned 45 years old I decided to get out of my fashion rut and find my signature style. I travel through time to learn about iconic fashion elements through the decades and apply them in a modern way today.
My hope is to push myself beyond the neutrals I used to wear when I felt invisible. I constantly challenge myself in areas where I feel resistance–learning how to mix patterns, for instance, and wearing dresses more often. The goal is to find a style that’s all my own, something that expresses who I am from inside out. And the trick is doing this with vintage and thrifted pieces made for my petite frame. You in?
About My Sizes:
If you’re following along for your own fashion adventure, you might like to have some of my sizing details to guesstimate how these same things might fit on you. I stand just at 5 feet tall. Last time I checked, my measurements were 32-25-34. I usually shop in the Petites section and I tend to wear the following sizes: XSP, 0P, 2P. I typically wear size 6 in shoes.
