First things first, we are back from our wonderful Parisian getaway and while I feel run down and sick, the travel and going non-stop was totally worth it.  Thanks to all of you who have entered the GIVEBACK!  Now that I have a working laptop I plan to visit all of your sites to say thanks but until then, know I'm grateful for your support and look forward to seeing who's charity will be chosen.

I've noticed a growing collection of vests in my closet and while I love them, I never really wear them.  Comfortably.  While there are simpler ways to don a vest, I am now gravitating toward throwing them (the faux fur ones of course) over a light jacket.  A blazer, thin leather jacket or even a chunky sweater...  I think part of the trouble before was feeling a little bulky so taking the vest to the outer most layer is a simple and chic solution.
