We have seen all kinds of wallets come out of all kinds of purses — giant wallets out of tiny purses and huge purses that are carrying a tiny wallet.  While I do not much care for clothing shopping, I do love a good purse and wallet browsing. I am currently carrying a relatively small […]

I’ve recently been diagnosed with chronic inflammation of both my lower back and some of the tendons in my feet.  This does not bode well for any stilettos in my closet.  While the high heels actually make my feet feel better, they do no favors for my lower back. I’ve been on the hunt for […]

Jeans For Every Body Shape

As we have discussed, there are five primary body shapes (pear, column, apple, hourglass, and strawberry).
