Darlings, if I have to be brave and face changes I need a fresh look to energize me. I cannot stand myself when I feel sorry for myself — because no matter what, I have much to be grateful for. Anyway, I was figuring out how to get out of my head today and found an inspiring talk by Kathy Capino on TedTalks that gave me a positive platform then I found the door open to the Joie shop in Pasadena. On the sale rack I found a suede jacket and matching miniskirt with a cheeky stud accent. Then I found a denim miniskirt that was well-priced and would help me revive a pair of denim Manolo Blahnik stilettos I bought last year on sale at NM.
