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!
