I’m channeling my inner Peggy Bundy. Can’t you tell? I think next time I’ll have to make my hair bigger (can someone please teach me?) and I’ll need a bit more of a waist cincher, in order to do her justice. I’ve worn this Rodarte for Target dress twice now, but this is the first time I’ve taken a picture. The first time I wore it, I was freezing in St. Augustine – it was 30 degrees and I didn’t even have tights on. I was in Florida; I didn’t know it would ever be 30 degrees!
This time, I was smarter and wore the thickest tights I could find (they’re warmer than pants, boys…several have asked me this) and also paired it with a coat and gloves (when I was outside). I was still freezing; I’m always freezing. My teeth chatter if the temperature drops below 75. Florida born and bred.
I took out the new Nikki bag that Rebecca Minkoff and Tweet My Bag messengered to me and I have to admit, it made me nervous. I don’t have a lot of “nice” things. Therefore, I don’t mind that I’m extremely clumsy and spill stuff, drop things and generally make a mess of myself on a daily basis. However, when carrying this Rebecca Minkoff bag, I found myself being extremely careful. Is that what you kids do with nice things? Or do you eventually get used to having them and let them get the usual wear and tear?

I’m looking forward to seeing how some of our other favorite bloggers’ (The Glamourai, Cali Vintage and Fashion Pirate are among the lucky gals!) looks with their respective bags. I’ll be retweeting their looks as they go up, so if you don’t already have me added on twitter, follow me now!
