Last weekend I enjoyed the sights of the pretty city of Stavanger, Norway where my sweetheartfriend lives. True to form I defied the weather gods that kept the rain and snow pouring down — this is as sensible as I get clotheswise my friends! Ain`t nothing wrong with a less than sensible attitude, no?

Buying this dress was one of those -OMG I just bought something in a designer shop that fit me/oh happy day-moments. Ever had one of those yourself? Wearing the dress makes me feel […]
