Hi and welcome to Seeking Frills! My name is Gale Laidlaw. I am a wife, mother of three boys and a nurse practitioner living in sunny Glendora California. Now that I am finished with grad school, I decided to finally share my personal style and love of beautiful things with the world. This blog is a creative outlet for me. I hope that it will be fun and inspiring for my readers. This blog is about expression and is a form of journaling for me. What I wear expresses my mood at a specific moment in time. It is basically photo-documentation of my evolving style. I hope I will look back on previous posts with nostalgia and fond memories. I wish my grandmother and mother took more photos of what they wore or did regularly. It would have given me a glimpse into their lives and therefore a more intimate understanding of their experiences and personalities. I hope this blog does that for my children. I love mixing prints, finding color combinations that make your mouth water, and sewing and designing clothes for myself that are fun to wear. I also love to make easy simple DIY updates to my wardrobe that I will share here. I enjoy mixing vintage and low end with high end designer pieces. I love unusual and interesting combinations and details. I am a seeker of anything lovely, Enjoy!
