Well Happy New Year, gang! How 'bout it--kinda crazy, but here we are in 2014! Before we get to the rig, let me first start out by saying yet another THANK YOU! As I mentioned in This Post, I had a bit of hesitancy about getting so personal--which based on the outpouring of purely sweet, genuine, and loving responses from you all was just silly! Y'all never seize to amaze me---seriously, women are just so dang fantastic, supportive, and beautifully vulnerable--we truly need to stick together more often! I have to tell you hitting "publish" on that post was quite frightening and yet so dang therapeutic at the same time--so thank ya, thank ya--may get a little personal on you more often! I promise I have read and re-read every comment, post, email (and WILL respond)--I just took advantage of being reunited with my babes after a few days with their dad that I haven't gotten to it quite yet (plus they make me cry every time I read them--in a good way)! But out with the old and in with the new shall we....
Yes, the new---this new little Orange Python Beauty--I just love love this clutch from GiGi New York. It's big, it's bright, it's classic, and personally I believe it's going to elevate a ton of my looks. The fact you can slap a monogram on there--well hell, that's just icing! Definite intend to sport this number once I get my butt in gear and back into work mode. You can never go wrong with a classic Pencil Skirt (on sale) and a blouse--the J.Crew pencils suck you in just right and give you a little curve, too! Alright gang, cheers to a productive beginning to the new year--let's def make it a good one!
