In My Easter Bonnet, With All the Frills Upon It….

ShareOK, so no Easter Bonnet.  I don’t even wear hats very much (other than wool ones you wear in the winter), but for Easter, my husband and I decided to head over to a local hotel for a delicious buffet brunch.  It wasn’t a fancy place – just a regular, run-of-the-mill hotel chain about a […]

The perfect bag…

ShareI love bags, probably because it’s hard for me to find good shoes.  I guess if I created Carrie Bradshaw rather than Candace Bushnell, I’d make her a bag lover.  I’m always looking for the perfect one.  I have actually found and pre-ordered one for the spring from 442 McAdam, but what about the winter?  The bag I use most […]
