Today I have a big presentation – for the “Why the Difference” conference in St Paul. http://minerva.stkate.edu/sciencetech.nsf/pages/wtdflyer I’m a little nervous and I practiced my “speech” last night and its about 10 minutes too long. So now I have a couple of hours to edit and then I’ll just go for it!!! (Pray for me!)
This weekend is the 4th of July shopping weekend – I’ll be broke, but maybe I can find a few clearance sales somewhere. I found a list on somebody’s website of the things that are “must haves” for summer 2006. I’m trying to base my summer shopping on this list – yet I hold on to my clothes forever so the items need to fall more along the lines of “classic” than trendy. Anybody have any ideas??? (Is anybody even reading this???)
1. A relaxed (belted) shirt dress
2. Bug-eyed shades
3. Wedge-heeled shoes or espadrilles
4. A crisp white shirt or floaty peasant style top
5. A crochet or lace top or dress
6. A trench coat
7. A floral top or dress
8. City shorts
9. An oversized bag
10. A stripy top, skirt or dress
11. A garment or accessory in a bright colour
12. A wide waisted belt – 50s style!
Here’s my “find of the day”. You know – the item you wish you could buy right now!!!! Saw these in the latest issue of Essence – enjoy!!! (by Sergio Rossi)
