3 Things: Fashion Faux Pas

3 Things: Fashion Faux Pas

We've all had them--major fashion missteps. Maybe we thought we looked good at the time, maybe the outfit didn't stand the tests of time, and maybe we just get it wrong when it comes to clothing. The point is none of us gets it right 100% of the time. I still remember the year I wore nothing but stirrup pants.…

The days are shorter up here in New England and the nights are bitterly cold. It's kind of bleak! As I type this, there's 8 inches of the fluffy white stuff on the ground and this girl is going nowhere today. On top of that, I'm feeling a good mope coming on and the beginnings of a cold.
