New outfits and a 30-day trial offer


Currently, I'm obsessing over everything color. The thought of wearing black in the summer depresses me, which is odd since my entire wardrobe used to be black. I had a couple of new colorful pieces come in from Gwynnie Bee (check out my last post about them): I would have never bought this top on my own, but grabbed it because if it didn't work, I could just shoot it back to Gwynnie Bee.

I LOVE the television show Drop Dead Diva. I LOVE Brooke Elliott, the star who plays Jane Bingum - the former skinny, blonde model Deb who returned to earth in the shell of a plus size attorney.
