Only those close to me know my deep dark shopping secret. OK, it’s not that dark or deep of a secret, but I don’t talk about it much.

Fashion does not have to be frustrating. That’s my new motto. In fact, I’m doing all I can to make things easier on me, my lifestyle, and my wallet.

Thanks for asking…because, I didn’t know a soul there and I didn’t know what to expect. Turned out it was an amazing, inspiring, and a definite spotlight moment! Read more
