It’s hard to believe that I’m writing a recap on my live TV appearance! If you told me 10 years ago I would do this, I probably would have said “that’d never happen!”…though it does seem like something I would try to do 😉 Good Day Marketplace on Fox News (Springfield, IL chapter) had me on their show to talk about fashion!

It’s black(my fav), but also has a 40’s vintage classy feel that I really like.   I think this dress looks best styled classically, so I wore classic pumps, vintage diamond earrings, and a colored lip.   This dress would  ...
