"What should I wear tomorrow?"

I think that every night.  Sometimes it’s a really obvious choice, and sometimes you just have to copy the first thing you see.

It’s like an animal-print romper.

I love my 70’s vibe! And when I carry this purse I feel all retro-fab.  In every scene of An Unmarried Woman (one of my fave 70’s movies) that involves a purse, it’s this one.

For the swirly Pucci-esque dresses my mom wore to her secretarial job in the early 70’s; and for that Revlon ad from the 80’s: “Red, she said.”
