About Alexis

Hi there! I'm Alexis, a 30-something literature fan, history buff, and lover of period and vintage fashion. These days I find myself stretched pretty thin, with not much time for recreational reading. I'm hoping to make reading a more consistent and joyful part of my life through this blog.

My taste in literature swings towards the classics--Edith Wharton and F. Scott Fitzgerald are two of my all time faves. I prefer American literature over Brit. lit., despite being a confirmed Anglophile in any number of other non-literary areas (English aristocracy and royal fashion, anyone?).

Edith Wharton. Fierce. Always.
