I am just taking a few days off before the new year, hoping to regather my scattered holiday cerebral.
And a big thank you to my friends and family (especially the husband). What a wonderful Christmas it was.

On the eleventh Day of Christmas... 11 famous quotes regarding style and fashion...
Over the years I have learned that what is important
in a dress is the woman who is wearing it. |
-Yves Saint Laurent
|Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. -Mark Twain|
|I would rather lose a good earring than be caught without make-up. -Lana Turner|
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. -Coco Chanel
|They think him the best dressed man, whose dress is so fit for his use that you cannot notice or remember to describe it. -Ralph Waldo Emerson|
|Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world. -Marilyn Monroe|
|Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn. -Gore Vidal|
|Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others. -Orson Welles|
|A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view. -Sophia Loren|
|There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I
don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex
appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain. |
|Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping. -Bo Derek|
