Flower Child About to Bloom

Thursday, September 20, 2018 3:30 AM

Happy Thursday!! 

Who is excited about the weekend?  I am!
My Birthday is next week and I am kicking Hoff the celebration this weekend. Dinner in the city with my bestie on Saturday night and a family party on Sunday to celebrate both mine and my sister's birthdays. 

Not too long ago, I claimed I couldn't wear yellow... I have decided I have changed my mind. When I saw this kimono at Bloomingdales, I was immediately drawn to it, but I didn't buy it. There was only one left, so I thought it about it for a few days, figured if I went back and it was still there, it was meant to be.  Do you ever do that?  As fate would have it, when I went back not only was it there, it was ON SALE!!   Another item I have worn so many times, it is such a versatile piece!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  9. I'm so glad you went back for the kimono! It's gorgeous on you! So elegant! I've done this before, definitely, but too many times I've gone back and the item was sold out! After that happening too many times I finally decided that if I know I get a tug in my gut that I'm going to regret it, I grab it now!
