Annie Hall might not have had the best taste in men, but her menswear look has been emulated since the film’s debut in 1977.  Break out a suit and tie with some tasseled flats.  As a petite gal, I am shying away from the flats and opting for some height with a tasseled heel.  You … Read more

I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts!

Sample Sale-ing Adventure

It’s official!  I have an unhealthy sample sale website addiction.  It combines two of my instinctual drives: sale shopping and competition.
