I want!

I have no space for it, but I so very desperately want to own it. Especially as it only costs $295. hmmm...oh Santa!

I should get some kind of WT prize...

As you know, I went to FL this weekend to see Brad and to attend the USMC Birthday Ball with him. On the way home, we stopped in the outlet mall in Destin, and boy oh boy did I have fun. At Ann Taylor I bought one suit, one jacket, two tee-shirts, and three sweaters for $150. As good as that sounds though, I can beat it.

In Ellen Tracy I picked up a brown silk and sequin just-below-the-knee formal dress. It was originally a Neiman Marcus dress priced at $748. The outlet store price was $559. It was on a special mark-down rack for $89. And in the end I got another 25% off for Veteran's Day. So I got a $748 dress for $72 and change. I may start wearing it around the house every day...

I love you Clinton Kelly!

I received a copy of Clinton Kelly's new book to review and it is Freakin' Fabulous! How can you not love a book where lifestyle advice includes "How to Speak" as well as "How to Dress"?

For my WT buddies, I share a favorite quotation:

"You will never be fabulous without fabulous footwear. How does one recognize a fabulous pair of shoes? It's difficult to explain exactly. For me, it's instinctual and very visceral. When I see a fabulous pair of shoes, a little shiver of happiness runs through me, kind of like that first second after you snort a crushed-up baby aspirin."
