'The Quality of [Repetition] is Not Strained'



I don't think a weekend has gone by yet that this flyaway tank (and my fedora, for that matter) hasn't been thrown into the mix! A beach day dictated that it be worn over my destroyed shorts and threw on the sandy Frye's for good measure!  Incidentally, my teeny bikinis have all but vanished and I have a slight suspicion that the BF hid them from me! Two can play that game, buddy. I'll just buy more hehehe!

I LOVE meeting fellow bloggers! So I was thrilled when Victoria of Thrift Juice told me she would be in NYC for a visit! We picked a designated area and when I got there, I looked around for a bit to see if I could spot her. All around me were females galore but the only one with an arm full of bracelet candy and wonderful oversized rings HAD to be the blogger and sure enough, there was she!

If you ladies have not yet checked out her blog, please do so! Victoria is new to blogging but an absolute natural, if I may say so myself. She has such a sweet disposition that we were instant friends. My only wish was that we lived in the same city. I could see myself getting into much bank account troubles with her!

Here's us doing what we do best - in JCrew on Madison Ave.
