About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

I saw an interesting sign in a florist’s window that said… Order your boutonnieres a week in advance… Now there’s word you don’t hear or see much. A boutonniere is a spray of flowers worn, typically by men, in the … Continue reading

Best Story Of The Week

Sans Culottes

Sans culottes is French for no undies…a state I’m often in, especially in the heat. I shed everything possible, having tremendous understanding of the nudist’s mentality. I had an appointment for my annual skin scan when my dermatologist dons a … Continue reading

Back In Step

The Cosby Mysteries

I’ve been following Bill Cosby’s trial in Norristown, Pennsylvania distressed for him, the woman that’s been testifying against him, and his family, especially his wife of 53 years. The man is 79 years-old, half blind, drenched in humiliation. It doesn’t … Continue reading
